Great location
The location is great, near metro station and tourist attractions. The staff, for the .ost part, were friendly. Breakfast could be better, but toast and coffee are better than nothing. You have to go through outside to reach restroo., whi h can be a cold hassle un the winter. Restrooms could be cleaner. But overall, good value and hreat location.

Fair 4.0
Not recommend family trip with kids. Room packed.
Not recommend family trip with kids. My room 501 (8 people room) really packed, room design look messy. Toilet got no washlet, only tissue. Shower is average. Sakura hotel at Jimbocho, near Akihabara is a whole lot better. This hostel is great for backpacker who only need to sleep in hotel.

Comfortable beds
Beds are very comfortable. Room, toilet and bathrooms are clean. But the corridor to the bathrooms and toilet is not in the building, is a bit cold to walk to the bathrooms and toilets. More clothes hangers and places to hang clothes are needed. Slippers and towels are chargeable. Transfers needed to reach the nearest station Asakusa (Tsukuba). Easy to find convenient stores, value shops, restaurants and near by sights.
sg4 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0 gets it wrong. does not have the proper description for the rooms. When we arrived we were expecting 4 beds but only got two. The hostel said the make that mistake all the time even after they try to clarify over and over. There were no more rooms available so we had to share bunk beds.

Good cheap hostel
Nice Hostel. The ambiance was good. We played video games in the common area with the other guests from other countries. The private room was good as well as the common bathroom/showers. The place never felt crowded.

Pleasant hostel
The room with two bunk beds worked out for our trip with 4 adults and 1 toddler. We just made a little bed from unused blankets for the toddler. It is always difficult sharing with little ones, but it worked! The bathroom was very clean. It was a nice time. It is a hostel, so some lack of privacy - along with meeting nice people from all over - is to be expected! The location is excellent for visiting the Asakusa area.
