Exceptional 10.0
Great choice for hostel.
This hostel is really good. Location is near Tokyo's Sensoji Temple, and near subway stations. There are food outlets open for 24 hours. The only thing I do not appreciate is the little storage for your luggage under the beds where there is a 6-inch tall thing from the ground, so you always have lift your luggages up a little to draw them out (you cannot swiftly roll them in or out your personal storage, which for me is a bit of a hassle.) But all other else, everything is good. I particularly LOVE the small bag of toiletries they provide for you. And the sleeping clothes are comfortable as well,
