Marco Bubke thinks…

"The location is really nice, very near to the train station. The hostel was the most cramped in Japan but it is Tokyo so this is to be expected."

14 April 2010 Amarryn would recommend this property

Liked: Very nice and helpful staff. 5 minute walk to Yamanote JR station. Cheap laundry service. Nice bathrooms and hot showers. Clean. Grocery store and 99 Yen store just around the corner. Had to change rooms a few times but I didn't mind as we got a free upgrade to a private room. Dorm rooms are cramped but that's just Tokyo for ya'.

Wai Meng Leong

17 March 2010 Wai Meng would recommend this property

Liked: Location is excellent. Only a few minutes walk from Ikebukuro station which is on the Yamonote line and various subway lines. Plenty of places to eat and shop in Ikebukuro too if you are not feeling like venturing far. Stayed in basic double - note that the size of these double beds are smaller than Western sizes so if you are big you may want to consider a twin. Otherwise rooms are basic but clean. Recommended if you are on a budget and dont want to stay in the traditional Asakusa/Akasaka budget area.

Disliked: Wai Meng left no negative feedback.

Liked: I was realky happy with the location. It's close to everything. However no tv in thr common room, which has the effect of actually making it a lot harder to meet people. Aldo they don't have personal lockers, so when you go out you have to bring All your valuables with you :(

Christine Kang

23 July 2009 Christine would recommend this property

Liked: Very close to subway station. Such a GREAT location because it's on the JR subway line (Yamanote) so it's SUPER convenient to get around to the big cities like Shibuya, Harajuku, Shinjuku, etc. Plus, Ikebukuro itself is a city to see because it has that famous street -- Sunshine 60. The staff was super friendly, especially Aki who helped me with everything when it came to planning my day trips and stuff. The blanket and pillow are really comfy (think it was a down blanket..super puffy-ish). very clean, very nice. TOTALLY recommend this place. the only reason i'm writing so much is because it's really worth the money.

07 July 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I liked quite liked Sakura Hostel Ikebukuro, because it was clean and quiet, the beds were comfortable and there's air condition in the rooms. Free wifi in the lobby is also nice. Downside is that they don't have lockers, but the 24h open reception would keep your valuables if you ask.I also think the location is better than most youth hostels in Tokyo, from Ikebukuro it's quick and easy to take yamanote line to areas like Shinjuku, Harajuku and Shibuya, and there's other lines too. Much better than a hostel in Asakusa I stayed previously. A bit more expensive than the cheepest ones, but personally think that the good location and comfortable rooms are worth the money.
