Great except the sewage smell
My brother and I stayed in a F lettered room. At first glance it looked ok. Had the bunk bed, shower, and toiled all in one room. The size didn’t bother me. However after coming back from being out smell started. I thought my brother just used the bathroom and made fun of him. Even tho he said he didn’t. Then the second night the smell was was still there. We swapped positions on the bunk and I 100% noticed the small coming from the side of the wall. It was covered with wood. But you could tell it was covering pipes. It’s not hard to figure out it was sewage pipes. I did make a comment they the rooms looked like renovated showers/bathrooms. I guess I was right. Other than the smell I could get passed anything. We didn’t complain because we were out most of the day. But I wouldn’t stay in that room again. I did get sick leaving. Not saying it was the room. But can’t rule it out either. Going back to Tokyo and my brother said don’t get a *hit room like before. He’s not picky. So even he wouldn’t stay again. I would stay at the hostel if I could pick another room. But beware of F room. The one in the left.

Good price and location
Great price, very friendly staff that can even help booking to transport to other cities. Convenient location in Korea town, with a lot of food around and walkable distance to central Shinjuku. Room is organized but towels weren't too clean, we just used our owns.
