1/5 Terrible

Travelled with group
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Staff are useless if you raise any concern. If you're interested in feeling safe during your stay, they will provide no help. I went to the desk regarding a security concern I had and they just shrugged their shoulders. If you're staying here, keep in mind the desk is just there to provide you towels. They do not care about you.

Pretty good value for Tokyo
Good location, 10-15 min walk to Shibuya. Clean and organised. Only 2 showers for the a whole floor isn’t many. Beware if you want to try and check in early, they charge 1000yen. I think this is taking advantage of tired tourists especially when they already have such a late check in time of 4pm. Why not check if the bed is ready and if so, allow someone to check in early. If not, then that’s understandable. The hairdryers are really week and need cleaning or replacing. Staff seemed friendly enough.
