The place was okay I guess, but is run like a hostel, so defeats the purpose of applying for the whole airbnb experience (and paying airbnb service fees). You thus can get better value elsewhere, so we somewhat regret staying here instead of another hostel.
- Pretty far walk from the station! Felt like 15-20 minutes. Loooong time to spend walking especially when you only have so many hours in a day to explore Tokyo. Additionally, there is a steep incline along the way to the hostel, so pulling giant suitcases up that hill was not fun.
- The area itself isn't very interesting, although it's apparently next to Waseda university
- There is no elevator, so you have to drag your bags up the stairs
- The room was quite small. We asked for accommodation for TWO people and what we got was ONE very very very creaky bed to squash ourselves into.
- You have to pay for them to wash your sheets when you leave (500 yen), or you can wash them yourself. Wasn't expecting this extra charge!
- You have to clean your own room when you leave too. Quite inconvenient for tourists to do. Also I'm a bit wary about how well the residents before me cleaned the room!
- Bedding was old and musty
- The single bathroom and single shower were shared between 5 other rooms. This made for bathrooms that weren't super clean (the bins weren't emptied once in the 4 days we were there) and everyone else's toiletries are hanging everywhere.
- The heater was inconveniently placed right above our heads (and we were on a bunk bed) so we had a very stuffy time
- They make you pay a 10 000 yen deposit when you arrive
- Walls are very thin!
- The closest station is Takadanobaba, which is along the JR Yamanote line, the main city loop. It's only two stops from Shinjuku station, so it's convenient in that sense (if you don't mind the walk!)
- The area seemed safe
- Internet is provided and is reasonably fast
- The shower pressure was okay and temperature was okay
- The heater worked well (even though it blew straight into our faces as we slept)
Overall, we wouldn't stay here again. It was much more expensive than other hostels you can find in Tokyo, and because of the walk, wasn't that convenient. Wasn't very clean either. Better to stay at a actual hostel. Probably one of the less pleasant places we stayed at on our trip, but if you're desperate (or study at Waseda) it's bearable.
It was very great to stay at Ichiro's T Tower Guesthouse, Ichiro is very helpfull and the neighbourhood is perfect to stay if you're looking for a quiet place. Yamanote Line is just 10 minuts walking from the House and near by the station you can find a lot of restaurants where you'll enjoy japanese food.
It's a good location and a good price for Tokyo. It is a tower block of rooms with shared bathroom and kitchen facilities, most of the other residents are long term. It felt similar to living in halls accommodation at a university, that can give you some idea of what to expect.
The shower is very good, the internet is usually fast but sometimes cut out for me or went slow (tip: if you rent a pocket wifi unit then wimax works perfectly in this location).
The room could do with better furnishings. The bed is a single futon on top of a bunk bed frame and the pillow is tiny. You could not sleep more than 1 person on this bed. With a better bed, this room would be far more desirable.
Muito boa a estadia no local.
The place is clean and convenient. Most of the people who stay here are staying here for long durations (eg 1 year), so they take care of the place. It is located 8 minutes walking from a subway.
The surrounding area is quaint and cute. A few small bars, quite a few restaurants and shopping centers. It is also very close to Waseda Uni.
I had my own room. It consisted of a bed, closet, window, and a air conditioner. There was a shared bathroom and shower for the floor, both were of good quality and cleanliness. The shared kitchen was well equipped and clean, too.
I had a bit of trouble finding the house, so prepare exact directions before arrival.
Ichiro is willing and able to book events for you (eg sumo matches, baseball games, restaurant reservations, trips to onsens or anything that needs a japanese speaker).
-the deposit of 10,000 yen is something you should be prepared for too. this was the only extra expense- he can charge it to your card too.
-my sheets were clean and the bed was very comfortable.
Great place to stay. My boyfriend and I were in town to meet up with his brother before heading south to visit family in Kyoto. The room is set up like a hostel, but nicer. Our room was very nice, for the amount we were paying it is a great deal, the rooms are small so two people with a lot of clothes may need to work to put everything away, but for a short term it was perfect. The bed was about a twin size bed, so if you are willing to get close two people can fit. There is a desk and chair next to the bed if you need to set up a small work station, and a closet that could fit a good amount of clothes. This would be a good long term stay considering the price, way cheaper than any key deposit you would pay in Japan. Ichiro is easy to contact, his office is in the building. The bathroom was clean, something that is very important to me when I am sharing. Be sure to bring any toiletries, although towels are provided. Overall I would say it is more than worth the value based on the location and what you are getting for you money.
