My one major complaint was that the major road right outside and nearby train lines can get loud at times. Not a good location for light sleepers! Otherwise quite a convenient location with good transit options, convenience stores, and restaurants (although some of them are open for lunch only). While most of the traditional tourist destinations are not nearby, this host is about a five minute walk from a Yamanote Line station (and just three to the subway), which makes Akihabara, Shibuya, Ikebukuro, Ueno, etc super easy to get to. The apartment building may look older on the outside, but it is extremely new and clean on the inside. One warning for couples: the bed and comforter are a twin size, so prepare to get cozy!
My friend and I loved staying here so much that we didn't even want to leave our room to explore the city. It's so clean and close by the JR which made it so convenient for us. The view out the balcony was so nice too. Everything was A+++++++ everything you can ask for is here. There's a lot of convenience stores around, Tokyo tower is just like a 20 min walk away, there's a grocery store and lots of restaurants surrounding it. There's also a small fruit stand next to the building that sells amazingly sweet grapes. But above all we fell in love with our host. He was s(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) kind to us and we had a lot of fun with him. He found a lot of good places for us to eat and gave us tips on where to go explore in the city. We also had the pleasure of meeting his wife for a little bit and she was so nice and cute too. It was really cool how close we became in such a short time and how he was so open to hanging out with us even though sometimes we felt like we might have been bothering him haha. He's like a new brother who lives in Tokyo to us now. 한국어를 되게 잘 하셔서 같이 대화하기 엄청 편했어요. 나중에는 오빠라고 부르고 싶을 정도로 너무 친절히 대해 주셨어요. 맛집도 다 찾아주시고 어디 갈때도 티켓팅이랑 다 알아봐 주셨어요. 만나서 너무 축복이었습니다.
This room was nice but very basic. The apartment is small, and it's shared with the owner who is in the room next door (we didn't see him at all the entire time we stayed there - and he made best effort to give us as much space as possible). All the spaces that you share such as kitchen, bathroom and toilet are really beautifully clean. The room in which we stayed was very small but enough for the price you pay - which is really reasonable. However, the bed is not very big and the pillows need to be better, they're very much like thick mats. Prepare to squish into the space, especially if you're tall and bigger than the average Japanese person. On the best positive side, the owner was so helpful with directions, and made sure we made it to the apartment smoothly as possible. Just add him on Line straight away to make this even easier for yourself. He was willing to offer any help needed and the wifi is great! The apartment is a 5 minute walk to the main train station (Tamachi Station) which takes 20 minutes to get to the city. It's a really great place for people travelling on budget, who aren't picky, and also for people looking to have quick access to train. We recommend to go to a hot dog cafe near the apartment for breakfast. It was amazing. It's only across the road from the station in a small backstreet. Enjoy!
