Great location in a walking distance to many restaurants, cheap price and nice room. Clean and light. Nothing very special, but absolutely nothing to complain. We enjoyed our stay there for two nights.

My husband and I just stayed here for 2 nights and it was perfect for what we were after. Only 400m from Shin-okubo station (one station from amazing Shinjuku and on the JR Yamanote Line) but in such a quiet peaceful location. It takes only a couple of turns down some alleyways but they are completely safe and there are...

We stayed here for 4 nights and were very happy. We had a Japanese style room for three people. The room looked to have been quite recently renovated and although it was small it was very clean and comfortable. There was ample storage space for the luggage, and there was a big bathroom which looked quite new and which had...

Was a good and big room which wasnt so expensive. The location is quite good. Few restaurants nearby and within 10 mins of walk some big bar areas. 5 minutes to closest train station but its an easy walk. A laundry place nearby also.

Although the distance away from the main metro station is about a 15 minute walk, it is a great place to stay. We stayed in a two bed room. The people at the check in desk are extremely friendly and helpful. They helped us find good meals and local festivals.

This hotel could be described as cheap and cheerful. Located in one of the many back alleys in Korea town in Shinjuku we were dubious at first but it it turned out to be the perfect location for our family when we first landed in Tokyo and needed a base to explore this exciting city. Don't let the topless wine...

Not the best hotel you might book, but you get for what you pay. Perfect for low budget travelers out there. Friendly stuff and central. Facilities are a bit old but not bad for a short stay. If you're looking for comfort i wouldn't suggest that you stay there, but as for me i'm comfortable sleeping in a tent on...

I would say this has to be the dirtiest place I have ever stayed in. I'm all for budget hostels as I am travelling but this was something else. The bathroom was filth, the bed covers were dirty, one of the beds was broken and on the floor. The heating kept us up all night making the LOUDEST noise I...

Delivery of beers to the room at 1am when you're drunk. Nice friendly staff. Central location. Cute girls on the corner trying to pick you up. Great fun and a experience you must have for the boys!! Great food close by! Reverse cycle air con providing solid heating. Good clean sheets and lots of cute girls at Cafes close by.

Nothing much to complaint for a budget hotel especially well located in city center but the facility is little old and considered dirty among Japanese strict hygienic levels. Overall is OK for short term travelers. Front desk is good with English speaking.

Staying in Shinjuku

Neighbourhood Profile
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
