Had an awful experience in a twin bed private for 2 nights. Our booking was originally for 6 nights but we were forced to cut our stay short and move elsewhere.
Generally, the hostel is very dated, there is no atmosphere and it has a dirty feel to it.
The private room was uncomfortably small - i understand that space is always going to be an issue in a city as populated as tokyo however the lack of space in this hostel is far worse than any other and makes you feel like you're in a coffin. We literally could not move in the room when our luggage was on the floor.
The bed was rock hard to the point that we got hardly any sleep and we were left in a lot of pain the next day. I genuinely think it would have been more comfortable sleeping on the floor.
These issues aside, the worst has to be the bed bugs that were in the bed and left me with very painful bites. I have had this kind of bite before and was therefore certain it was bed bugs and not mosquitos and the bites were in places not accessible to mosquitos.
Despite all these issues, we were forced to pay their cancellation charges which appeared very unfair in the circumstances as the room was completely inhabitable.
I advise anyone not to stay here. Stay in Nui hostel down the road instead which we have had a great time at.
