  • The hostel is simple but neatly, the public area is not spacious. Wifi intensity is good, so if one who just surfs internet, reads in the room, that's OK, or possibly there're some people in the public area, no enough space for eating snack or whatever. For security, the hostel uses the electronic lock on 1st floor, the key is a RFID card. The staff are patient, we were late for checking-in, even beyond the office hour, but the staff stayed overtime, welcomed us kindly, really appreciate her.

  • Really good location, only 5 minutes away from Nakano station which is just a few stations away from Shinjuku, Harajuku and Shibuya. The twin room was very small (just a loft bed, a very small table and two clothes hanger) but clean and with a air conditioner. The street is loud at night. The showers/toilet were clean as well. The common room with the kitchen was okay though not super clean and a bit outworn. Altogether it was good for a few days and if you only want to stay there to sleep.

  • Lovely hostel with nice staff and not far from the train station. Some good eateries nearby and only one stop from Shinjuku on the train.

  • Good hostel to stay in very close to the shinjuku area - just one rapid train stop away, takes 10 minutes from the hostel to shinjuku. Rooms and beds of decent size, everyone gets their own locker, bathrooms are clean and the showers are of a good size. Atmosphere wasn't great when I was there but I'm sure it depends who else is around.

  • Pros: - Very near a lot of convenience stores, the 7-Eleven is right across the street - Near the post office and ATM that serves international cards - Near Nakano Station and Nakano Broadway - Cooking events together Cons: - Thin wooden walls - The bathrooms needs much more regular cleaning and maintenance, the hairs in the small bathroom is really not inviting, along with the irregular hot water. - The badly placed aluminium sink that makes such a racket through the thin walls.

  • The location is great (5 min walk from Nakano sta.) and the staff is really helpful and friendly. No matter how you look at it, this place offers great value for your money. There are a few things to consider though: The bathroom on the top floor stinks enough to make a man nauseous, even though it is seemingly cleaned regularly. There is no soap even in the bathroom so make sure to bring some. Lastly, the rooms have paper thin walls so you can hear everyone around you. Still recommended though.
