Ok place if you only need a bed & shower water
This is a ok to stay. It is right down the street from the train station and a 7-11 and there are food around the hostel but all these food close early. Service is ok, as I don't really need any cleaning but not all their bathroooms are stock with handsoap. I have long hair so my biggest concern is the shower. Standard shower system so yes there is hot water (the hostel I stayed at in Feb did not) but the shower head is wayyyy too weak that it is important to take a shower, and it is near impossible to wash your hair.The breakfast is a joke. They let you get a drink and 3 items... mini sausage, scramble eggs and meatball. One staff gave me the eggs, another staff came and told me it was for another person and spoon 2/3 out of my plate in my seat. Staff can speak English.

Its ok
Well, I have to say that I liked the hostel. The staff was nice and for a hostel it was very clean. The only thing that bothered me about the hostel itself was that the pillows were too small and in the long run the mattress in the back just ached. After all, it was sometimes very annoying that the train drove right past the window. There was only a period of just under four hours at night, in which was calm. Last but not least, I have to say that the other guests have disturbed me most of all. No consideration for others. That some people were already asleep or at least tried to do so was a lot of them care less. No one responded when their own alarm clock rang, so I was forced to wake up.

Good, cheap hostel with good location in Tokyo
As a young couple, this was a perfect place to stay in Tokyo. Close to Asakusabashi train station, clean, good service, and airconditioned rooms! We shared a bunkbed in a hall with several others, but the small compartments had a piece of cloth in the door opening, which gave us a bit of privacy. The beds themselves also had curtains, and although the sounds from other travellers is as expected at a hostel, I would say the privacy is a notch better. Even though it has nothing to do with cleanliness, I have to subtract a point because of a scary encounter with a cockroach in the 5th floor showerroom.

Clean and convenient location
East 57 has 2 buildings. I guess I was in the newer building because everything looked new and in good shape. The staff walked me through and explained all about the amenities. I liked how they conserved energy with most lights auto off and auto on/off water faucets. There are free slippers, a towel to use during stay. Washer/Dryers are modern commercial type which is very practical. During the stay I saw the staff came to clean tables, floors, and all other common areas many times a day even around 10pm. Bathrooms were always clean and so far no strange odor. The 2 nearest subway stations are very closed, only about 3-4 minutes walk. A lot of affordable restaurants nearby as well including ramen shops and tempura shops which opened super early too.

A friendly and convenience hostel
Pros + staffs are very nice and helpful, speaks good English + a few mins walk from JR Asakusa Bashi station, which is just a few station from Akihabara and Ueno. + place are clean and tidy. + a (1) free bath towel when check in. 50 Yen for any following request. + a small safe box for each bed, ask the reception for the key of locker Cons - the mattress is a bit hard, somehow you can feel the spring of the mattress - space in each floor are limited, maybe inconvenience for traveler with bulk luggage - the beds only separately by wooden plate/ curtain, maybe disturbed by snoring if you are light sleeper.
