Fabulous 8.6 From 186 reviews

Very good 8.0
Nice and clean hostel
I was happy with my stay at this hostel. The initial check-in experience was alright, but the staffs who were on shift late at night were very friendly and engaging. Overall it felt like a safe neighbourhood, and Shinsen and Shibuya are around the corner. Roomwise, we found the normal twin bunk room to be quite cramped, especially if you have 2 big suitcases. Shower and wash rooms were nicely equipped, and so was the little basket of goodies that the previous guests left for communal use.

Pretty good value for Tokyo
Good location, 10-15 min walk to Shibuya. Clean and organised. Only 2 showers for the a whole floor isn’t many. Beware if you want to try and check in early, they charge 1000yen. I think this is taking advantage of tired tourists especially when they already have such a late check in time of 4pm. Why not check if the bed is ready and if so, allow someone to check in early. If not, then that’s understandable. The hairdryers are really week and need cleaning or replacing. Staff seemed friendly enough.

Nice place
Nice beds, clean and tidy rooms, bathrooms and showerrooms. Late checkin at 4, but other than that I got no negative remarks.

Great hostel!
Great hostel, clean, very friendly staff, dorms are very nice. 15 min walk from Shibuya station (central area). Recommend.

Good 6.0
Great hostel, rooms way too small even for Tokyo
I stayed in a two bed room by myself. Everything about the hostel is great except the photos of my room are completely dishonest. There was literally only enough floorspace to open the door while the photos made it look like there was at least double the space. It made staying or doing anything in the room extremely challenging and uncomfortable.

Fantastic hostel
Fantastic hostel. Room is comfortable and a good size, shared shower room and WC are also clean. Love the decor of the hostel. Will stay again when I next visit.

Fair 4.0
There are better hostels around.
After staying at the amazing sadou hostel in Ueno, I came to this place and I was really let down. The picture give you the impression of 4 bunk beds per room or round that, no, you’ll instead be lumped in a dormitory of 28 people! There is no safe place in the dormitory to lock up large possession and where I was there wasn’t even really room to put it on the corridor without it becoming a hazard, the only option is to keep it at reception, but then will you keep going down for valuables or changes of clothes? No breakfast or food provided, though they would bring it in eventually? Some shelves held up with gaffa tape, and security doors constantly left open by guests. Staff, while helpful, seemed largely unable to help as couldn’t hear you over loud music they would play. Good beer in the mother bar though, for 500 yen. Beds were comfy, if a little bit cramped then other hostels I’ve been to, and wasn’t provided with fresh towel on daily basis as other places too, they’re an extra apparently, but maybe that’s me. Washing machines only held on 2nd and 3rd floor, with not much places to wait, so you’d leave your things at risk, even then, the drier didn’t seem to dry properly and there wasn’t even really anything to hang your clothes to dry. There was a rack, but only came up to my shin. Location wise it’s great if you don’t mind walking 20 mins to shibuya station, so it’s great for that, also some nice restaurants nearby especially ramen.
