Good stay for a family of 5

Overall, it is good value for money. OK place to stay in Tokyo for a family. We were traveling with the kids so got a private room which was very spacious so we give points for that. Is walking distance from the train station and easy to find. There are nice ramen restaurants, sushi bars and convenience stores right around the corner. However, traveling with kids, we would reconsider staying here as it turned out to be close to the National museum and a park but far from the centre -we definitely underestimated the traveling time. If we come back we’d probably look to stay in other neighbourhoods with more action such as Ueno or Asakusa. Also, the floor of the room was dirty (our socks turned grey whilst walking in the room) and internet in the room never worked although the staff tried to help.

Friendly staff and nice hostel

Clean hostel and friendly staff. Convenient location. and Wi-Fi connection was good. I lived in the dom and some people made noise at night or early in the morning which was disturbing.
