An unique experience”

Before I came, I was little nervous. In photo, the bed looked small, and I worried about some problems, like privacy. But, everything was great! I expect the bed was 190cm long, and curtains are available for every bed. And most of all, because the interior was from real train hokutosei, every night, I felt like I'm in the train! That was very apealed to me. I strongly recommend to stay here!

A good hostel to spend some nights in Tokyo. Bathrooms are clean, they have a peculiar common room and kitchen where they recreated the interiors of an old train ( the kitchen was actually our favourite place!). The staff was kind and accommodating, they helped with a wrong booking on agoda (a problem caused by agoda app) and let us change the booking at no extra cost. Only (small) con: beds are not too comfortable, very thin futon

Train Hostel great for American Woman traveling on her own”

I had a great experience at the Train Hostel in Tokyo. It was easy to get to off the JR and it was very central to seeing the sights or jump on the JR to run around. The Female only floor felt very safe and was wonderfully clean. The mattress could have been a little more comfortable but overall I was very happy.

Unique concept, great location, helpful staff”

I think it's great that they try to do something a bit unique here: from the train carriage style bunk beds, to the sliding compartment doors to get in/out of bathrroms, and the lounge modelled after a train dining car. The facilities are new and high quality. The shower is fantastic and soap and shampoo were great as well. Located within a few minutes walk from several stations, so it is very convenient to arrive from either Haneda or Narita. What would be even better is if they make all guests remove their shoes on the first floor, like other Japanese hostels I've stayed at. Then guests would not need to put on shoes every time they need to visit the bathroom or lounge.

A good place to stay !”

It is located right next to subway exit. And the station it is located at has 3 metro/JR lines pass by. 30 mins metro ride to Haneda airport. Very convenient! Staffs are very helpful. Each floor has its own washroom. Shower room and laundry is located at the top floor. All of them are very clean. A good choice if you are looking for a cozy place to stay and don't mind living in dormitory. Overall it is very good and would love to stay here again next time visiting Tokyo.

Value of money, good for budget travelers ”

It's a best accommodation for budget travelers. It's cheap and convenient because the entrance to subway is just next to the hostel. There is seven-eleven convenient store next to hostel too. Shower room was clean and big enough to use. There are loundry services 200yen for washing and 200 yen for dryer. You have to bring towels yourself if you don't want them to charge for towels. The bed was cozy and comfortable. If you don't care for noise during night, it's a best place to stay in Tokyo. The internet access (wifi) is available for free.

Excellent”

When I first arrived at my space I was honestly quite disappointed. It's very bare-bones, even according to hostel standards. You have to make your own bed, as well as put on the sheets for the blanket, pillow and bed. However, it does have a personal light and two power sockets. The curtain offers privacy, but do bring ear plugs as there are many people in one room and you WILL hear noise from your neighbors. Some people have complained about the storage area which does not fit a backpack, well, it's only meant to store your valuables. and not your whole bag. Also,i f you are taller than 180 cm I think you will have a problem sleeping here. The big plus for me is that the toilets and shower rooms are extremely clean, and they do have hairdryers in the shower room. The shampoo, soap and conditioner were good quality. All in all the hostel provides all that I needed for my short stay.

The hostel itself is fine, good place, good manner staff. But i have inform via agoda upon rsvp that i would arrive late therefore required midnight check-in. The hostel emailed me before 12am that they're closing reception and if i was still going. By the time when i read the email and arrived, it was too late and door was closed. In the end i spend a night out there and only check in the next morning. Not sure the responsibility of missing out my late check in request is on Agoda or Hokutosei, but anyhow this was a very unpleasant experience.

The hostel itself was nice and I really liked the train theme but unfortunately I stayed in the mixed dorm and the other guests were talking on their phones or snoring so loudly I could even hear it with earplugs. I can't believe how inconsiderate about other people some guests are.

Train Station(Higashi-Nihonbashi) for Airport have a problem when you have 28" Bag there no escalator for change side, maybe you must hold your heavy bag by self if you going to airport.

It is right beside exit 4 of Bakorucho JR station. There are 2 flights of stairs, no elevator. The toilets and showers were very clean. The only con is, if you’re on the top bunk, it’s a bit hard to move. Take note you have to put on your own bedsheets.
