Location is superb!”
Very close to Ueno station which makes everything easy. However, no air condition in the room which I find it quite strange, luckily I did not stay during summer. Overall it is okay, but I like the fact that it is close to the station, which is very convenient especially for those who needs to go to the airport early in the morning.

Good Location”
Advantage: The location is very good. It is located near Metro Ueno Station, JR Ueno Station, Keisei Station from Narita Airport. Disadvantage: 1) bathrooms and showers are shared, Toilet not in every floor. 2) Level 1 common area is smoking area 3) Public Bath small but so far I never have problem on the sharing and waiting

Good location”
The ryokan is located among dozens of food outlets and shop in Ameyoko cho. Old hotel with not so friendly staffs. Cleaniless is acceptable but the noise from the surrounding shops may be a problem for some.Tatami room is old with only one light. Will avoid this hotel if the twin room rate remain about ¥8000。

Very near from JR, Metro, Keisei skyliner to narita station only by walk. Surrouding area is really great, many restaurants & the ambience is nice there. Love the tatami room much! It's cute and they clean it everyday. Need more lighting in the alley to the room & lift. Staff should be more friendly to guests.

Convenient, cheap (in Tokyo), lovely staffs”
Staffs are so friendly and helpful, can speak basic English. Located close to the train station on the business street, market, shops and bars just outside of the hotel. unfortunately we've been waken up by the smoking smell and the unpleasant smell of the street from outside of the window every am. It's quite usual in Tokyo though, ppl smoking on the street, restaurant, hotel, everywhere... we booked Japanese style room, it's a big room for two ppl compare with other hotels in Japan but the sleeping bunks are not comfortable especially if you have back problem...Shared shower room is nice and clean, has full set of toiletries. A bit noisy as the location, but acceptable :)

Best Location. Clean Rest Room, Clean Bed, Daily New Linen”
The hotel is situates near both JR and Metro subways exits (Less than 200 meters). It is very convenience to access public transportation system. The hotel is IN the Ameyoko market. Lot of fun with food and shopping. Occasionally, there are some noises from train track and Loud music at night but the level is not troublesome. Most of the night is quiet for sleeping. Occasionally, there is cigarette smoke which the elevator carries from the smoke area in the lobby. There is sometimes guest smoking in the toilet and the smell gets in the dormitory. The second floor of the hotel is capsule type dormitory, so you can expect a new face guest at night. These are Japanese employee from drinking in the area but will leave 8.00 hr in the morning. They are quiet and reserved. The rest room is very clean. Bed is done daily and clean. New towel, rope, tooth brush set and razor set are given daily. There is one microwave and hot water pot to heat food and make drink but must carry to the room to eat and drink. Staffs are polite but are strict to hotel's rule (Japanese typical manner). The only disadvantage is that 1) capsule's guest cannot stay in dormitory between 10.00-15.00hr. 2) private area near bed is very small. 3) Even though there is a locker for everyone enough to keep clothes and small things for daily use, luggage had to be deposit at reception daily. Very satisfy with every things and will come stay again.

Great Location, Very Basic Accomodation”
The location is fantastic to access multiple stations and trains, parks, and food in the evening. I'm glad we stayed there for easy access. The accomodation is very basic, however, and the bathrooms and showers are shared. I thought everything looked mostly clean. There were large containers of soap and shampoo in the bathroom for guests to use and one hair dryer. The room walls, however, are thin and it is easy to hear people in the hallways or next door. I did bring ear plugs and they helped a lot. Guests over 1.8 meters may have a little difficulty in the rooms because the ceilings are low.
