My bf and I had a pleasant stay here in April 2013. (TripAdvisor does not allow me to select this date in the pull down menu, but we indeed stayed here in April 2013, not Sept 2013).
Price: The cost for 4 nights was $378 USD, and did not include breakfast. We thought the accommodations suited the price well, but what would have made the stay feel like a great value was if breakfast had been included.
Location: The hotel is located in what felt like a very safe neighborhood, and was a little far from Shinjuku station by foot (20 mins), but on the way to Golden Gai.
The room: Our "double" room was small, but clean. There was just enough space to set down our luggages in the corner and walk around the bed. As an active couple that doesn’t spend much time in our hotel rooms, the size did not matter to us and seemed fine for lodging/sleeping. There was a small tub/shower with good water pressure and heat. We had one window facing the side of another building, and it was quiet. There was also a small desk and we had a good internet connection by wire, which we brought with us from the US (I recommend doing this in the event the wifi is not working). I
Hotel staff: Nice, most spoke English. Honestly, we didn't have many interactions with the staff, but when we did it was pleasant.
Hotel environment: The hallways are dark and dingy and kind of smelly, but you only really notice this when you're in the hallway, not in your room. We did not check out any of the amenities, and I'm not sure there actually were. I don't think we ever saw another person (except the receptionist) in the hotel! There are candies at the reception desk, which I enjoyed.
Food: We only tried breakfast. If you buy a breakfast it will come with something like eggs, toast, yogurt, and coffee, and we thought it was expensive/not worth it for what it was. We preferred getting something to eat elsewhere.
Overall a pleasant budget hotel!
