Conveniently located hostel
It's not a bad hostel at all, but it was definitely the worst I stayed at in Japan. The main issue was with noise in the room. Every night I was there there was noise late at night, like 1am. I think maybe extra signage would help. A lot of other places had more sound/light proofing than a thin curtain which did not help. I also had issues with roommates leaving blood tissues etc on my stuff. The place doesn't have a great atmosphere compared to others, the only communal area is literally the cafe, and you can't eat external food anywhere. The staff also couldn't locate my mail I pre-arranged to have sent to them so I missed out on a data device I was paying for daily for a whole day which was annoying. Great location only 10 or so minutes from Shinjuku attractions and good transport links. I recommend the Japanese breakfast.

Great hostel, clean and friendly
Excellent staff, very friendly and helpful. Location is good, not far from the subway and the Shinjuku madness. As with all the hostels I've used in Japan, the place is extremely clean, and wifi works really well. The cafe is a nice little hangout place with good food and happy hour from 5-7 (draft beer JPY390). Lockers are in the common area outside the room (free to use but JPY1000 key deposit). The street outside, and the hostel, both pretty quiet at night. Definitely would recommend.
