  • From metro/JR station, there's about the 10-minute walk distance to the hostel, not really far away. The hostel is a little small but clean, and the staff are polite. For security, thay have electronic security lock for the door on first floor. Anyway not bad, can really consider to live in.

  • My experience at Yadoya guest house was great. The location is good, the shower is clean, etc. If I had a chance to go back to Japan, I would definitely stay here again.

  • Really unclean and small, but staff were very helpful and had perfect English which was great. Would only recommend if you want somewhere to sleep and shower.

  • Stayed here for 6 nights in the 4 bed female dorm. It was smaller than I had expected but it met my two basic needs: a place to sleep and shower. Shower and toilet room were kept clean. The staff were really nice and helpful. A 7Eleven right across the street was so convenient! Very close to Nakano station. I would stay here again..maybe with a backpack this time as opposed to my 50 pound luggage.

  • Our stay was very pleasant, however, there is one thing that really bothered us. Our room window was facing the alley where the entrace is after hours & one night we overhead one of the staff members (young, american (?) guy) badmouthing guests to other guests (he couldn't understand how someone staying chose Yadoya for their honeymoon, as it's the "shittiest" hostel in Tokyo), he also complained about room cleaning. This we found quite unacceptable behavior. Guests pay his salary, you know.

  • Friendly stuff, had a great week here. Was easy to sleep except for the last two nights as of a snorer. Bring ear plugs!
