Great and the Terrible
The water pressure and heat made these the best showers I've ever seen in a hostel. The staff is helpful and friendly. The area is quiet and quaint with a couple good, small restaurants but it's only a couple stops from Shinjuku if you want to be somewhere more lively. My one serious complaint is that the place is smoker friendly. It's not an activity allowed in the rooms, but the little smoker closet they have set up does not keep the smell from getting into everything. When someone was in there, I was choking from the other end of the hall.

Good 6.0
Good location, in a quiet neighbourhood near Shinjuku and has convenience stores nearby. I got a private room and when i got there i realized it was actually a big room with a divider in the middle. Some people were staying in the room behind the divider and i could always hear them talking. They sprayed some perfume and i had to smell it too. I wish I just got a capsule instead. The room also had bugs in it, and the table had weird stains. However, I booked the room very last minute at the lowest price in Tokyo, so I wasn't expecting much. It's fine for a short stay if you need to save money.
