Bed was really clean
Nicw staff and facility
This place was pretty great. Like one big dorm room with plenty of space per bed (pod) and in a really cool location near Arts District and Little Tokyo. Plus there’s some communal food incl bread, peanut butter, tea and ramen so you can mitigate some of those food cost blues. Also quiet, no traffic or commotion outside.
I don’t think the staff member enforced quiet time. So there were some guests kicking on with booze in the common room, gratingly audible in the sleeping area, and that just sucks when you’re wrecked and being patient, anticipating you just have to put up with it until a certain advertised time until that time passes and you realise you’re going to have to listen to some dumb, drunken smalltalk for even longer, along with the majority of other guests who are trying to sleep too.
Everything was very clean and well-organized. It was decorated well and beautiful. The facilities were spot on and the staff was nice. It was located conveniently though and I was satisfied with my stay there.
I went in the summer and it was very hot in the main cabin where I sleep because I don't think they had air conditioning, so I had trouble sleeping a bit. Also, there is zero privacy with no curtains allowed, so people can see you sleeping and doing things in your cubicle. I would have felt more comfortable with at least a curtain since it is a mixed gender cabin.
We had a situation with the hostel and the only staff there was trying to help us which we appreciated.
We had a very dent mattress. It was so dent that, they had to cover that part with a pilow. If you put a water bottle on the mattress it rolls into the dent part. We communicated that with the hostel on the phone the next day as there was nobody at the reception in the middle of the night and in the morning. We were promised that we could switch to another bed below us. However when we got back to the hostel, the bed was already taken. We communicated again with the staff there, and his explanation was that no message about that came to him therefore he didn’t make the switch in the system and other people could book the bed. At the end he found the single bed above us which was available so my boyfriend took that bed and I had the bed and slept on the less dent part. The hostel refused us for the refund and neglected the fact that the bed was so wore and not suitable for anyone sleeping on it. They claim that there is no dent but one can clearly see it in the picture. Beside the bad bed, the hostel claim they have air conditioning but they did not, it was a faulty functioning portable air co which they cannot connect the tube externally which causes to warm up the air inside even more. They used an industrial fan to cool down the temperature, which also generate constant loud noise. For the way they handle the situation above, I would definitely not recommend anyone to stay there.
