    Value for money. Room is small for 5 but it is so near to the hustle and bustle of shin-okubo. ”

    Room enough for sleeping and shower purposes if you are not so particular about the living standard. Walk out to the room and you will see the hustle and bustle of shin-okubo. Countless good foods, drugstores, supermarket, 24h Donki, shop till you drop. Walk to Shinjuku in no time, everything is around you, super convenient

    Good Location Terrible Hotel”

    The Haru Hotel is located very closes to two stations, one on the Yamanote Line. An it is cheap, but those are the only good things I can say. The futons were terrible and dirty, the room was tiny, wallpaper was falling off the walls. The bathroom was so small and my friend who is somewhat taller, couldn’t fit in the shower. The door to the room didn’t close properly (there was always a little whole), same for the window. The room was almost always either too hot or to cold. The man at the reception is friendly and the Hotel is cheap and in a great location, but DO NOT expect any comfort whatsoever. We seriously considered changing to a Capsule Hotel upon arrival.

    WORST STAY EVER!!!”

    This is my worst stay around the world in 10years traveling... the Korean guy from the reception is RUDE, IMPOLITE and NOT FRIENDLY at all. He said I can’t stay at the installations before or after my check in/ out time, he literally push me out, send me to the street, cero flexible or kind... so he also said I can’t be there from 11-3pm because they need to clean, and you cannot use the kitchen/Lounge/computer area after 11pm even if you are just working quietly and making zero noise. Terrible experience!!! One one small toilet and shower, they don’t clean the sheets... extremely disappointed... never will be back !!!

    I got one of the tatami mat rooms with futons. The room was very spacious and clean. The bedding and toilet/shower were also very clean. We were provided with a small bath towel so I wish I had known to bring a large one. The staff was very curteous and helpful, and spoke english well. would visit again.

    Best location near Yamanote line Shin Okubo Station”

    I am hesitated to book after most reviews said that receptionist is rude and unfriendly. However, it is clear that most bad review come from unhappy customer. Day shift guy is more friendlier because he is able to converse in English, only the night shift guy seems "rude" . You need to lower down voice from night until dawn and not make any noise. Avoid slamming the door, use pantry at night (pantry just beside this basement room) and also minimal use of bathroom Room on basement one is the cheapest, 10 people are sharing the same room and bathroom. A little cramped but bearable. They will end up complain to hostel workers and write bad review My personal opinion, hostel workers are torn between customer differences. They are not rude at all and allow me to check in even after past midnight. Cheapest accommodation at the best location, near JR station, restaurant & supermarket. You pay peanut & get peanut. Do not expect noise free room if you are paying for cheap "hostel"

    Pros: -JR Shin-Okubo Station is a walking distance from hotel -Hotel has no curfew and you check out just by leaving your room key in reception -WiFi is available -Umbrellas are free of use -A lot of affordable restaurants nearby -Kitchen is open for all from 7am to 11pm (great if you plan to eat in). It has cooking utensils and a water dispenser for both hot and cold water -Bathroom is clean and has a heater -Towels can be replaced with new ones free of charge -Rooms can be cleaned free of charge, but cleaning is mostly limited to floors in room and bathroom and not the tatami beds/ bedsheets -Laundry room is available free of charge Suggestions: -Indoor slippers may be provided -More glasses/ cups in the kitchen -Hand held bidet may be added in toilet or a water dipper in the bathroom

    Creaky beds, rude staff, weird curfew, generally very old and beat down place. Does not compare well at all with all the other hostels I've stayed at in Tokyo. The area is also pretty bad with lots of Koreans and Chinese.

    Excellent for a hostel”

    Not sure what the more expensive rooms are like, but I stayed in a bed in the male dormitory. As far as hostels go, this is easily the best I've stayed in. Location is great. Price was great (though I got lucky and snagged a bed for 8 USD a night). Staff was friendly and patient with me. I'd highly recommend staying at Haru Hotel. If you're wondering how to get to Haru Hotel, like I was, here are some directions: From SHIN-OKUBO station: 1. Exit the station (there is only one exit) 2. Cross the street. McDonalds is on the side of SHIN-OKUBO. You should cross to the other side. 3. Now that you're on the opposite side of the street, keep walking forward. 4.Walk forward until you see a karaoke room. It has glass windows and a sign with red, neon letters against a silver backdrop. MAKE A RIGHT down the alley. 5. Walk forward until you see a sign for Haru Hotel. The entrance will be on your right. Sorry for the wall of text. I tried to call beforehand and was not given very good directions. The gentleman just said "walk for three minutes." Needless to say, I got very lost after arriving close to midnight on my first trip to Japan. Anyways, enjoiy! P.S. the beds in the dormitories are SUPER squeaky. Please be considerate and try not to masturbate during early mornings or evenings when people are trying to sleep. I had to politely ask my roomie to stop several times. He apologized each time, but must've really needed to rub one out.

    This was the cheapest option I found for staying a week in Tokyo. Great location, great staff, and was overall clean. You get what you pay for so if you sign up for the bunk bed room where other travelers stay then you'll get all that obviously comes with that (heavy snoring, can't make too much noise, must be careful with lights, different sleep schedules...)

    Do only go there if you just need a bed”

    They place is in a good location but still what was worse was the personal. No friendly hello which you are used normally in Japan just a crumpy guy which seem more or less in racist mood, to us. He came down several times just checking if we behave, and the only thing we are doing where eating some snacks and watching a tvshow. Like now way that is service, I mean we paid for the Hotel so at least be friendly and respectfull I dont wanna feel like unwelcomed guest. So I think there are better locations in Tokyo.
