This is a wonderful hostel. Staff are really friendly and the location is excellent, right beside a beautiful temple and a neighbourhood that feels quiet yet has lots of restaurant options and interesting people walking around. The place was really clean and we appreciated the free breakfast. Would DEFINITELY stay here again if I come to Tokyo!

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.
