Best hostel I've been to!
This was probably the nicest hostel I ever stayed in! Everything was very clean, and I think the simple but stylish design definitely helped it feel so. Although there's bunkbeds I've not had a problem once with anyone shaking the bed. I was staying in the men's floor and there was a bath as well as two showers, and although it might seem like there's quite a few people able to stay on each floor, I've never had a problem with washing. The breakfast is a toasty, granola and tea or coffee, etc, so maybe not the kind of breakfast buffet people may expect, but it's nice nonetheless, and there is a convenience store right down the corner! The staff was super nice and helpful. I tried to practice some Japanese with them personally, but they speak English very well. Probably the best English speaking people I've met on the entire trip! As far as I've seen they're all young people and are very friendly. Lastly, the area is very good. There is a metro station in walking distance (3-5minutes) and even though the hotel is in Shinjuku and close to nightlife, it's also right outside all the bustle and junk of nightime Shinjuku which I really appreciated. The only downside was not having a secure place to leave my luggage. I've been able to leave it at a friends' airbnb, and I doubt anyone there would've stolen it, but if you really want the extra security I'd say find a place you can leave your bigger luggage away, because the place is definitely worth a stay!

Nice and clean
Very clean hostel with very nice staff. The bar/cafe area has a nice lively vibe for when you feel like socialising and the dorm floors are quiet.

Good 6.0
Convenient location in Shunjuku, and decent value for money. The hostel has limited character. The rooms and facilities are functional and clean enough, but nothing too exciting. Good base for exploring Tokyo, but not a hostel where you're likely to want to spend a lot of time.

Poor 2.0
No towel given
This hostel doesn't provide towel even if you stay longer. You have to rent the towel with additional cost. The staff here insist not to provide the towel after asked so many times.

Suitable for Families too.
The staff spoke good English and were helpful. We had a whole room to our family of 2 adults + 4 kids + 1 baby so all was good. :)
