Everything was amazing. The only issue I had was the shower water temperature changing frequently as I took my showers. I really liked the doors having automatic locks with passcodes, and not having to carry a key around with me. The staff was incredibly friendly and the neighbors were courteous and a quiet.

Convenient place, good service, good price.

The area was great, and has a lot of stores to visit around. The owner was very warm and helpful. They respect privacy, so it is a very good place take a rest. It is a shared room, but the room itself has its own digital lock system which makes it safe from other people. They also provide complete toiletries with towels and earplugs. The price was also good for the stay. It's a recommended place.

This hostel is very near Okubo & Shin Okubo station on JR line. Despite hidden at a small lane, it is very convenient to eateries & shops. The environment is clean & quiet. Shampoo, shower gel, towel are available. Staff are helpful & friendly. I will consider staying here if I am going back to Tokyo again. At the price it is really good for those travelling on a budget.
