Very nice staff and very clean place”

Thanks to the staff who was very nice. The place is very new and clean. The beds in dormitories are confortable. I definitely recommend this place! And one very convenient point, you have the Asakusa subway line which goes directly from Kuramae to Haneda Airport (If you have a Subway pass, you'll have to pay +300Yen when arriving at Haneda) and it takes about 45min

HIPSTER HOSTEL CLOSE TO KURAMAE STATION”

Unfortunately we only had the pleasure to stay there for 5 hours so we can not rate the sleep quality. In general they were very kind to store our luggage from 10:30 until check in at 14:00 which is usually first granted from 15:00. A few people were hanging out in the lobby which is also the breakfast room and reception and kitchen. Everything looked very nice and well designed. The rooms (walled with pressed wood plates) are small but clean - windows can be opened. As in every hostel you have a couple of regulations: Slippers, mask, handwash, gurgle, etc.. There was only one shower cabin on the 3rd floor with shampoo provided. The washroom had three sinks so enough space for the people based on that floor. Fortunately they had an elevator as we arrived with 4 bags. Thanks for the stay and hopefully you stay open for the few travellers left during these times.

Local comfort”

Local area near tourist spot, with a small downstairs cafe. Walk to the tourist spots or bicycle. Small shared kitchenette allows light cooking. Friendly staff. Cool cafe has delicious coffee and tea. Sometimes the pleasant smell of hojicha fills the air. Seats at downstairs cafe are not free but worth the price of the coffee. Nonsmoking so the flavor of the coffee can be tasted. Relaxing music.

Pro and cons”

The double room I rented is small but cozy and the access to shower room and toilet is just beside the entry door. The staff can speak and understand english language. t Toilets and shower room clean and well maintained. I think you need to set a rule for not using washing machine at 00:00 and you need to provide more main dish beside curry.

Casual Cool ”

Relaxing quiet place with a cool chill music cafe below. Staff is friendly, helpful, and can speak English. Located near the metro with easy access to the airport, it’sa short bicycle or walk away is a bustling tourist area. Arrive at the hostel and chill. Very few drawbacks. It’s very clean (thorough daily cleaning) in the main sections despite dust in corners (?weekly/monthly special cleaning). Although a couple people might not realize they need to not only keep the conversation down in the sleeping space but also need to be careful with door slamming or crinkling paper in the dorm space, most of the guests are aware that they are in shared space so a restful sleep is usually possible. Have a simple breakfast in the morning with a uniquely delicious potato salad. Enjoy various flavorful coffees and chai while refreshing from the days journey or tour, do teleworking, read a book, watch the video film, or chat with friends. It’s a modest hostel but comfortable cozy and well located.

Everything is great except for the non-existence of bidet on the 1st floor and 5th floor”

The stay would've been perfect if there were bidets on toilets. I was expecting it! Since the place looked cozy, I didn't bother to look into the presence of bidets. I think the hostel should add them as most hostels in Japan had it installed already. On the other hand, I think the hostel's pretty great overall! Great location! It is surrounded by so many stations and train lines. There's even a station nearby on a walking distance with a direct airport access. The staff was super nice. The vibe was really cool. The beds were comfortable.

Relaxed”

Very nice with small kitchen and table space. People are normally careful about loud voices at night (signs request keeping voices down, thankful,y) BUT sometimes someone is NOT careful in the middle of the night or early morning with door slamming or shutting loudly. It makes a huge difference in a good sleep. Sadly there are no signs for this or cushioning on the door. This aspect of the facilities is a problem. People need signs to remind them and some cushioning is needed on the doors and maybe a sound buffer on the bottom of the door (a rolled up towels or clothes can help buffer the door banging. Apparently people late at night or early morning don’t realize what they are doing. On days when this doesn’t happen, the hostel allows good comfortable sleep. It’s a lovely space and near the historic district.

The hostel is near to the subway station and the places around are quiet. The bar& restaurant downstairs always smells good when I pass through to go upstairs but unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to order food or drink. Hope next time when I come, I will try. The hostel is great, you should book and stay here. If they provide any breakfast, that will be better.

Cozy Place with Cafe”

Superb location, a short walk from tourist district but not right in the noise of it. It’s very comfortable for a simple hostel and except for some dust spots, very clean., There’s a small shared kitchenette but it’s adequate. You will need to pay to use the cafe side or get some curry but it’s worth it.

Private Rooms do NOT have private shower”

As some other reviewers pointed out, private rooms do not come with private shower/bath. The “shower/bath” sign is misleading (mot just for me but other reviewers who made similar comments) but it simply means “shared” shower/bath. There was only one female toilet on the floor, which I couldn’t use since someone didn’t properly flush the toilet in the morning. There were only two shower rooms on the floor. Single rooms are really tiny, even compared to other Japan-standard single rooms, so I did not find the room worth for its price. I'd suggest paying a little more but staying at a bigger room. Some said they liked the wood smell, but I thought it was a bit too much. And while the room was tiny, it was quite dusty. Dormitory rooms might be OK but private rooms don’t really worth the money.

If you are a remote worker, don't come here”

Highly not recommend. The staffs here are so unfriendly. If you arrived here earlier, then you can't stay here before checking in, even just staying in lobby is not allowed. Moreover, if you want to leave your heavy luggages here before you can check in, since they forbid you from staying there, you have to pay for extra 200 yen for leaving your luggages here. If you are remote worker, then here definitely is not a place for you. I was expelled as soon as I sat down. No one is allowed to use the common space which is the only place with tables. In addition, even though they imposed some rules during coronavirus pandemics for safety reasons, they didn't follow their own rules really well, and they provide a really crowded room, because they don't really care what will happen on you.

Super séjour”

Mon copain et moi avons dormi seulement deux nuits à cette auberge. Cela dit, notre séjour a été très agréable. D'abord, la chambre et les pièces communes étaient très propres, voire même très « design ». L'accueil était également excessivement agréable. La localisation s'est avérée aussi parfaite pour nous, puisqu'elle nous permettait de nous rendre à l'aéroport (Narita) via un seul train, situé à quelques mètres de l'auberge. Le seul bémol : il y a très peu de douches. Par exemple, sur le 4e étage, il n'y en avait qu'une seule à partager. De plus, tout comme dans plusieurs auberges au Japon, le coût des serviettes et des cafés était notamment assez dispendieux. Somme toute, je recommande cette auberge sans hésiter!
