Very good 8.0
Efficient check in, only problem was the person above me thought it was an awesome idea to rustle every plastic bag in Japan at midnight. Otherwise epic stay.

Poor 2.0
Claustrophobic and noisy
Terrible. It is indeed a hive; you'll be like a bee, in a tiny cell, unable to move or store your belongings. I could barely sleep as everyone is so close together, you can hear EVERY single noise. People were not quiet or considerate the night I was there. Also, there is only one shower area for the entire hostel. Lucky I was leaving at 6am so I showered before anyone else. I was so desperate that instead of getting up and leaving at 6, I ended up leaving 30 minutes earlier.

Nice people to stay with!
When looking for a clean, inexpensive, no-frills place to stay this is a good option. This would be my 5th hostel in Japan and it is one of the better dormitory style places. Other guest houses had the option to rent rooms with 2-4 bunks in them with a locking door. This is a place that is a true dorm style but you are given a locker to place your valuables in. This place has a communal kitchen with amenities available for you to cook and eat with. And they offer toast and tea in the morning as part of your stay. Other places have offered the same for a nominal fee or not at all. It was hard to find the place at first, we took a taxi from the airport and the driver couldn't find it at first. It's hidden down small, narrow streets which is why i gave a neutral to the location. WiFi is included and it worked! The staff are very polite and helped whenever they were able when it was a question. I would recommend this place to people if they were on a low budget yet wanted a comfortable and safe place to be.
