Nice and clean environment. Just no lift there have to be careful when carrying the luagge up and down the stairs is quite steep. Do remember to get your own padlock if not you have to rent which is not worth the price. Oh ya, using of hair dryer have to be before 11pm. So if you intend to hang around late, you cannot use it. Staff are friendly and helpful

The latest time we can check in is 1am and we were running late as we had issues getting to the hostel as we landed at the airport late and trains don't operate after midnight. We contacted the host and asked him to wait for us. He was happy to do so and when we arrived at about 1.15am, he was happy to greet us and welcomed us warmly. He even helped us carry our luggage up the stairs. We really appreciate that he waited for us even though it was so late and greeted us kindly and were patient with us when we arrived. Thanks so much for that!
Dear Kelly To begin with, thank you for your stay with us as well as leaving the review for us. We believe it is very difficult for first visitors to Tokyo to find right direction and schedule time accordingly. In terms of that we were very relieved that you could make it to the hostel and appreciate your advance notice for late arrival, which helps us very much to work around. It is always our pleasure to welcome all of you to almond hostel & cafe. If there is another chance that you take a trip to Tokyo again, please let us hear from you again. Kind regards Jun on behalf of almond crew
It was located in a not so crowded area of shibuya. We thought we had to take the train to go to shibuya or harajuku, but we walked everywhere! It was close to all the famous districts & if you need to take a train, there are 2 train stations nearby. The staff was okay, they knew english. The cleanliness was just okay too. But overall great stay!
Dear Annisa To begin with, thank you for your stay with us. When you visit Tokyo again next time, please let us hear from you. We are always looking forward to your visit. Kind regards Jun almond hostel & cafe
very cool place, very clean and great coffee :) i loved the neighbourhood very much, you can easily walk to harajuku and other nearby neighbourhoods. wish i could've stayed longer. nearby metro station yoyogi-hachiman had some confusing moments but don't let that stop you from coming here :)
Hello, Erin. To begin with, thank you for your stay with us. We were very pleased to have you here in almond hostel & cafe. It seems like you got a bit confused with yoyogi Hachiman station. We would try to explain about it better so you do not have same problem from next time. We are very looking forward to hear from you again. Jun almond hostel & cafe
Amazing hostel, but it’s a hostel”
Absolutely amazing hostel. Location and amenities for the cost are fantastic. Right next to the subway and really close to everything on the west side of Tokyo. Clean and they have everything available for purchase at the cafe as well. Storage, large enough for a medium sized suitcase, is under your bed and you can buy a lock for it. Only negative is that you share the room with people. It’s unavoidable and its variance will likely change the experience of the stay.
Hello, Richard. Thank you for many of your compliments for our hostel and rating us full score! I am very glad to hear that you stayed very comfortably and got satisfied with our service. As you mentioned above, since the structure of the hostel is entirely a dormitory, sharing a floor with others is not avoidable. In other words, people stay with others from all over the countries, which derive a chance to see how people in different countries tend to be in public, I think. It must be interesting experience. I hope it worked same way for you. I sincerely appreciate your kind review and visiting us. I hope to see you again here in almond hostel & cafe Jun almond hostel & cafe
Very misleading description of the room setup. Would not have booked, had I known the actual layout. Also the room is overheated with no ventilation, pretty bad.
Dear Gissinger To begin with, thank you for your stay with us. Regarding overheated room, we sincerely apologize for that. As it is getting colder and colder, we wished our guest had been able to stay warm. As a result, we might have failed in temperature control during your stay. If it happens again next time, please let us know so that we can take a proper measures for you. Concerning description of the hostel that you think was very misleading, I carefully let you know that it is automatically set description in accordance with our facilities as it is, which is unmodifiable for us. We wish the explanation would be helpful for you in resolving your misunderstanding. Kind regards Jun almond hostel & cafe
Good for back packers”
Nice little place a short walk from Yoyogi park, Hachima station and harijuku. Staff have great attitudes, are very helpful and make good coffee. The hostel is popular with business travellers so it is quiet when you're sleeping and often clean. Downfalls are the stairs women need to climb with luggage, only 2 showers and the bed hole gets quite warm.
Dear Natika To begin with, thank you for your stay with us. It was a great time for us to have you here in almond hostel & cafe as well. We can confidently say that all of the almond hostel & cafe are very willing to offer and help out our guests with whatever needed at all times. However, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that you had during your stay. If you come visit us again with your heavy luggage, just let us know that you need a hand with it. Then, no matter who, we will take care of that for you. Again, thank you for visiting us. almond hostel & cafe
It was very expensive and it was just like a capsule but an expensive one for a capsule. I had hotel at Yokohama at only around 4000 yen +. It really was a room exclusive for a person and it was better. It had sleepers a toothbrush and paste plus it was very comfortable. The staff also was alone. He had to do all the job at the cafe and at the same time, attend to clients who booked at the hostel. It took so much time from both of us and I was very pressed of my schedule for tour. It was a bit disappointing experience for me. I wouldn't recommend the place to anyone who is time conscious.
good locaton ”
good location and nice cafe under hostel. staff was friendly, near to subway in5min walking distace.
방문해 주시고 이렇게 리뷰도 남겨 주셔서 감사합니다. 큰 불편함 없이 지내신것 같아 저희도 기쁩니다. 혹시 또 다시 도쿄 방문하실 기회가 있으시다면 언제든 방문 부탁드립니다. 그럼 기다리고 있겠습니다. 감사합니다. 준 아몬드 호스텔 & 카페
Value for Money”
Good location, lots of kombini in the area, near the train although train exit with elevator is a bit far (we needed this when we had luggages with us). Solo beds / cubicles are well maintained, except that the other areas of the room and restroom were a bit dirty (but might also depends on the guests you're with at that time). Okay place to stay if you're on a budget.
Thank you for your stay with us. We can proudly say this hostel is one of the best located hostel in Shibuya. Regarding cleanness of restrooms that you mentioned in your review, we are somehow trying to make sure it's clean at all times, but, also it depends on guest staying at the moment. Anyway, we are sincerely sorry for the inconvenience that you have. We will be waiting for you to come back to the hostel once again. Thank you again. almond hostel & cafe
Quiet area, relatively near to main shopping district”
-Friendly staff who spoke good English. -Within 5 mins leisure walk to yoyogi-hachiman station. -Check in counter aka cafe counter. Who know you can do both checking in and ordering of a cup of coffee at the same time. Decent coffee. -1.3-1.7km walking distance away from Shibuya. Away from the noisy district. -Strictly 4pm onwards checking in, till 1am. Was process with documentation and had to leave baggage behind the counter. Con- Baggage was not tag when leave behind the counter. When I came back to collect it in the late evening, another guest before me was handed my backpack, but lucky I was there to quickly claim back my luggage. What if guest have identical bag ? Towel, adaptor, toothbrush, bedroom slipper, lock, all for rent. Shower solution, shampoo for free. Limited shower room, when compare with ratio of guest stay at the floor. Poster on wall direct guest to take traditional Japanese style bath nearby the hostel (a way to experience the Japanese way of cleaning up).
Hello, Chor Wei How have you been? Are you well? To begin with, thank you for your stay with us as well as your detailed review. We were very pleased to have you a guest like you here in almond hostel & cafe. We owe you our sincerest apology for your backpack. We always label stored luggage. However, it seems like, somehow, it was taken off and we got confused with luggage. We will beware of it in order to prevent from same mistake. Lastly, we wish that you experienced the Japanese traditional public bath during your stay. If another chance to visit Tokyo, you will be more than welcome back. Kind regards Jun almond hostel & cafe
Even better than I expected!”
This is a good 25-m walk from the center of Shibuya, which is not bad if you're considering to drink out until after the last train. It was quite private in the bunk, didn't expect that for a 25 bunk on one floor and the bathroom was quite nice and clean. It was spacious enough to have your luggage in there and included two hangers inside the bunk which was nice. Also, love that they offer free umbrellas that you can return after use when it was raining. Met good people in the hostel late at night, they were drinking after the cafe closed and it was nice to hang out and just talk until 5 AM. Really friendly bunch. Would definitely recommend and stay here again! Can't beat - the only downside is they don't have an elevator for my big ass luggage but the staff was nice enough to bring it up and down the stairs when I checked out.

Nice and friendly”
It’s well located, just 15 minute walking from shibuya crossing, and 5 minute walking to Yoyogi park, close to the hostel are many konbinis and places to eat! Just across the hostel is a bakery with delicious danish pasterries! The beds were comfy and private!

Clean and new”
Staff is very helpful. Shower room is clean. There’s no elevator and walkway is a bit narrow, so it’d be a little inconvenient if you have big luggage.

Super clean, all very new, great location!
It was very glad to have you here in almond hostel & cafe. We opened in September last year and 8 months have passed so far. In addition, overall color of the hostel is white.

We feel so much job satisfaction from a review like yours. By the time you visit again, I am sure that it will look still same in cleanness, or better. We are looking forward to seeing you again.

I accidentally booked two bunks instead of a private room (I don't even think they have any private rooms) and the staff were so nice and arranged for a partial refund since I was travelling alone and only needed one bunk. My luggage was lost and they gave me a rental towel for free. I was a bit skeptical about staying in a mixed dorm, but the facilities were great and the bunk was super comfy. I'd stay here again. Only complaint I had was that there was no hot water in the bathroom taps (the showers were hot though). Can't say enough how friendly the staff were. The cafe also has almond milk for their coffee, so awesome for vegans!
it was our pleasure to have you here in almond hostel & cafe. You will be more than welcome back here. We would love to see you again. Then, we will serve you almond latte again. We will be waiting for you coming back one day. See you until then!
Love the location where is close to Yoyogi Uehara, Yoyogi Koen and Shibuya. Relaxed atmosphere and everything lovely icluding friendly staff.

방문해 주셔서 감사했습니다. 건물 자체에 엘레베이터가 없는 관계로 가능한한 직원들이 짐을 옮겨 드리고 있습니다만, 그 점에 대해서는 사과의 말씀 드립니다. 감사합니다.
