Mandy's place is in a little historical suburb known as Shibamata. Surrounding the share house is a lovely neighborhood with a preserved Edo-feeling. You are also within reasonable distance of Kanamachi, a hub for Tokyo university and a wonderful shopping district. With the Edogawa River nearby, there's a number of parks and biking trails to enjoy too. However, do note that this share house is a bit far from metropolitan Tokyo. It took me about an hour to get to Tokyo station for work, and that was using the rapid train. Overall, the share house itself is clean, bright, and the rooms are large enough for a single traveler to be quite comfortable. There's a kitchen upstairs that's small but is perfect for cooking meals. Bathrooms are split between male and female; and there's two sinks per floor. There weren't many people there when I stayed, so it's pretty calm throughout the day. Just bring an eye mask and ear plugs if you are a light sleeper, because sound does travel throughout the building -- especially at late night when everyone's there. Recommended for the value and location :)
I booked the place for my father, he had difficult to find the key, and didn't have any help to check in and didn't have any explanation about the place, (like where is kitcken or bathroom). Over all everything was ok, the room had everything as in the picture, but I don't recommend the place for old people.
