Stayed here for a week last month while my girlfriend and I were in town for my friends' wedding.
Oak Hotel was an awesome place to stay; it was cheap, it's located about equidistant between Ueno and Asakusa (both good touristy areas), and safe and quiet. However, the rooms are absolutely, almost novelty-size small. For one person it wouldn't be that bad, and it was manageable with two, but if you're the type of person who really needs space you might want to think twice about the Oak.
That said, I can't think of any other downsides; Inaricho station is about a 5 minute walk away, the place has all sorts of great touristy info and facilities like laundry and vending machines and stuff, and the staff is just incredible - they do a great job of having a small hotel have a really communal, hostel-style atmosphere. Definitely a place I'll consider staying again when I'm in Tokyo!
