Great place, just lacks storage
This hostel is a great choice, it’s reasonable priced and very clean. Check in was simple, staff are very helpful. The down side was the size of the locker space. The secure locker small and can only accommodate a few items. And the us know where to put your bag, peoples items are either in their bunk or in the walk way.

Best hostel in Tokyo
I have been to many hostels in Tokyo but this is the one. Probably the best hostel in Tokyo in terms of cleanliness, location, and friendliness. I highly recommend this place for travelers who wants to save money but still had some standards

Grand Location
I couldn't believe myself when I arrived at the hostel. It is surrounded by everything. I mean if you have been to Tokyo many times and no need to go nowhere but shopping, you simply walk a few steps any direction, you will hit several malls. Food also abundant from cheap eat to high end. 4 different subway stations nearby. I came directly from Narita to Asakusa via Heisei Skyaccess which is the cheapest train without Japan Rail Pass (1,200 yen). I stayed 7 nights at Bunka. They provided me with a fresh towel every other day. I stayed at some other places, 1 towel for the whole 2 weeks. Toilets and shower rooms on each floor. There are 1-2 female only floors. The space around the beds is quite spacious for a hostel. Not tight at all. I can easily open my large suitcase lying on the floor and other people still have room to go around me. Internet is also crazy fast. I like how they designed the bunk beds. There is a wall halfway of each bed, so top beds won't see bottom beds and vice versa. It makes each bed seem private even when the curtain is opened. By the way, the famous Kaminarimon is right around the corner.
