2/10 Poor

!!!《It’s the worst》!!! まず部屋の状態がとても酷かったです。毎日ハエが部屋に10匹ほど廊下から換気扇を通って入ってきていました。 その上、掃除には約束した日には来ず、別日にノックもなしに入ってこられ、寝ているところを起こされました。 また、チェックアウト前日の夜9時頃になぜか男性スタッフがノックをしてきて、出たくなかったのでドア越しに話を進めると、チェックアウトの予告を言いに来たとのことでした。 そして最終日、予約サイトまた部屋にもチェックアウトは11時と記載してあるにも関わらず、10時頃 掃除の方の都合で早く出ていってほしいと掃除のスタッフに言われました。準備を続けていると女性スタッフがやってきて、時間が突然変わったから退室してほしいと言われました。 全て事実を記載しています。こんなにひどいホテルに泊まる経験は、今までもこれからも一生ありません。

I stayed in a private room, which was very nice. Location was convenient right at the station, the staff was friendly. I will definitely recommend it to others. The only thing that was a bit uncomfortable is that I stayed on the second floor and carrying luggage upstairs was hard. I believe they have private rooms on the first floor too, so you may want to request one in advance if you arrive with heavy luggage. I also was lucky to book it during promotional time, the price was unbelievable.

Budget-friendly hostel with a convenient location - right next to the station and can get to Shinjuku or Shibuya in around 15 minutes. The area is nice and quiet as well.
