We very much enjoyed our 3 nights here. The hostel is super clean so I had no issues at all with the shared bathroom facilities. Showers are 100 yen per 5 minutes but this actually is a great way to conserve water. Location is a bit far out but public transport is so good that it doesn't even matter. Rooms are small but so is everything is Tokyo!

Very clean and comfortable, very friendly and helpful staff. Even a small breakfast and free coffee/tea is included in the small price!
The hostel is in walking distance to a JR station on the Joban line, just 2 stations away from the Yamanote ring line, so you can get to all places just using a JR pass!

The staff and the guests here are very friendly, you can make friends from different countries here. Price is affordable and cheap in Tokyo. The hostel is near Asakusa area, take around 20 to 30 minutes walking distances to there.

The hostel is located far from the train station around 20minutes. There have three different subway line stopover here. So, it is quite convenient. The room is small but the price is valuable. The staff here is very polite and friendly.

This place is super cute and quirky. Themed bathrooms and toilets abound (Rainforest, Transformers, or Hello Kitty anyone?) and everything looked clean and new. We made an error with booking (turned up a night early) and they fit us in and even upgraded our room for us. They have a little cafe/bar across the main street with decent food and excellent drinks. The staff we dealt with were really helpful and friendly. About a ten to fifteen minute walk to the train station, with closer bus stops. All in all, good value and would happily stay again.

We just loved the place! It's very clean, especially the toilets. Rooms are very cozy and bright. Hostel is located on a very small, quiet street so you can fully relax after exploring busy Tokyo. Staff speaks fluent English, is very helpful and kind.

Room Tip: You can fit 3 people into double room, they put one extra bed for a small charge.

We still look back very very fondly on our stay at Aizuya Inn! Friendly people, squeeky clean, cosy, nice people, moderate pricing, perfectly located to explore Tokyo by subway. The rooms are just big enough to fit the futons, but that's quite ok. You should be comfortable with Japanese slipper management (leave shoes in entry, put on slippers, slip off slippers in rooms and tatami places and change slippers in washrooms). The hostel is not spacious but looks spacious because of nice and very loving design. If you are an oversized person (width-wise), you might not feel so comfortable, length is not a problem (my husband and son are 2m and it wasn't an issue). There are enough showers and bathrooms, convenience stores right in the area (walking distance) and you can cook your own meals and have them in the very nice common area. If we are ever back in Tokyo on travel -- this is where we'll stay.
Things you want to bring:
- laundry detergent (if you are particular about what you want to use)
- a well packed bag (you cannot unpack -- you have to lived out of your suitcase)
- something to hang up your towels (string, a camping something / in German it is called laundry spider, it has one hook to hang it on the wall and several clothespins attached)

But really, the people are so friendy, any problem you have they will help you.
Have fun.
