We booked a triple private room rather than dormitory as I was travelling with my brother and 16yo son. There is a curfew at this hostel because it is in a Govt building on the 18th and 19th floors only and similar accommodation in this price range is possible at chain style hotels where you get your own bathroom/towel/toiletries. It's a personal priority as you sacrifice kitchen facilities and opportunities for socialising. Free wi-fi in the common areas worked well and the staff were friendly and helpful. The building itself is right next to the railway line but it can be a challenge to find reception as the only sign we saw was on the directory near the inside elevators. Easy once you know to go inside the Central Plaza/Ramia shopping arcade. Burger chains and a convenience store close by. Easy access to the inner city Yamanote green JR train and close to Akihabara "electric city" The showers and bath room are on the 19th floor which is only accessible by stairs. Japanese bathing involves showering first to cleanse then soaking in a hot communal bath (men and women separately but could be confronting if you are uncomfortable with public nudity) There are toilets and sinks for men and women on the 18th floor.

Room Tip: The triple room had 2 sturdy double bunks and a sofa so could possibly sleep 5. Big glass windows give a great view.

I stayed one night .
location is so good. Just 1 min from IIDABASHI Station.
Rooms are on 18th floor,so you could enjoy the nice view of Tokyo .

In a room ,we have 4 beds and big sofa and chairs.
You will feel relax in your room.
At night it was quiet, so we slept well.

In Bath room, they have a big Bath Tub and 8 showers .
You could try Japanese Bath.
Bath room and WC are not clean on the small corner.

I cooked at morning.
Small kitchin !. For just one people !
If you don not cook at a hostel, it is OK. You have a 500 Yen breakfast.

I recomend this Hostel for just stay and go sightseeing in Tokyo.

There's a curfew at night and you can only shower during the specified times, but overall it's a decent stay. If you get back past the curfew, you can still get in, but will have to call and wait for the person to come get you.

Bed's a bit hard but relatively comfy. The room we had had 2 bunk beds (4 beds) and a table in addition to locker space. The bunkbeds have curtains around them. The view from the room is nice since it's on the 18/19th floor. It's pretty quiet except for some morning announcements sometimes. I also liked the wifi, but some people had problems staying connected to it. There's also coin laundry/dryer (no detergent so buy your own though). Hot/cold water is available on the 19th floor.

The shower/bath is shared space so if you're uncomfortable getting naked in front of others, bring a towel with you or get one for 200 yen. Shampoo/body wash is provided. If you don't like sharing and want more privacy, you can get a small hotel room of your own elsewhere for less than 1000 yen more.

Iidabashi 飯田橋駅 station (of 4 Tokyo metro lines as well as JR) is right downstairs. There are many shops/restaurants and a supermarket in the same building (on the other side).

Very good hostel, with very helpful staff members who speak a brilliant level of English. As there were three of us we had a dorm room to ourselves, which was great. The views of the sunset at night were gorgous. Beds were comfortable.There is a curfew, but that was out of their hands as it is a government building. This did not cause any trouble though as they give you a number you can call at anytime to enter the building after curfew. Only downside was that it was quite expensive for a hostel- though it was right beside train/subway, which made up for it.

I have stayed this youth hostel many times.Most of the time, I was placed 4 bed dormitory room and spent nice time sharing room with nice people.(did not nessesarily talk each other through )I slept large room with more than 8 people(as long as I remember) only once,but don't worry this is also a comfortable room.
In my opinion more and more Japanese people stay here compared with some years ago.
People stay here, I feel,they are nice people.They behave themselves.I was almost never bothered in dorm room or other place in the hostel.Each bed has curtain so you'll have privacy as well.
In the bathroom,there are private shower rooms as well as pablic bath.(There are curtain) You have to undress before entering those rooms but it is a few steps.Soap and Shampoo are provided.
