The property was situated in a great location - close to the heart of Shinjuku. The train station was a brisk 10-15minute walk with key hubs such as the Golden Gai and shopping streets an easy walk. The staff were excellent and very friendly. The cleanliness for a hostel was second to none. I would comeback in a heartbeat and highly recommend to anyone looking at hostels in Tokyo.

Modern hostel in great position

Pros: The cafe in reception area.
Cons: A lamp in the room would be nice.
Location: Near lovely gardens and excellent places to eat.
I stayed for three nights with my daughter in a private room. The hostel is an easy ten minute walk from Shinjuku station. The staff are very friendly and helpful and speak excellent English. The cafe near reception is a good meeting space especially at night over a sake or beer! In the morning they offer a ¥600 buffet breakfast which is great value. Certainly recommend to all ages.
