5/5 Excellent

The staffs were absolutely amazing and super friendly. They were also extremely helpful too. If you have any questions, ask them first because they can speak pretty good English. This place was so clean. You get free breakfast everyday. But, if you don't like their breakfast, you can always go to the convenience stores to get onigiris or even bentos. They are everywhere and very close to the hostel. The train station is also really close to this hostel, you can walk to there in 10 mins. Because of the coronavirus, they provided us a mask every day. The only con I can think of is that they turned off all the lights at the bedroom area at 11pm. If you are a night owl, you probably won't like this either but just understand that you are staying at a shared hostel. And, you can always keep the lights in your bedroom on. This hostel could be a good place to make friends too since they have people from different countries staying there. Last but not least, this is kind of off topic, but if you want to go to Harajuku, make sure you check what time the shops closed. I went there at 7:30pm, and most of the stores were already closed. So, make sure you do some "homework" before going to there or other places. I would say the safest time going to Harajuku is probably after 10am and before 6pm. I think this hostel is very close to Harajuku (I drive at least 30 mins to school everyday in the US, so 45 is like nothing), it only takes 45 mins if you ride the train.

The facilities are all clean. However, there were guests that were talking in the sleeping area eventhough there was a sign that it was the quiet area.

Stayed 7 nights. The reception team are amazing, always going the extra mile to help. Very friendly. They also ensure the place is spotless. Will stay again when I'm next in Tokyo and the place felt like home away from home.
