No towel given
This hostel doesn't provide towel even if you stay longer. You have to rent the towel with additional cost. The staff here insist not to provide the towel after asked so many times.

Friendly and functional
The customer service here was exceptional, the people at the front desk were so friendly and fun too. There was a basic breakfast of tea, coffee, toast and cereal in the communal space where I met some really nice and interesting people also staying at the hostel. The room beds were comfy, but the noise does travels s it is a concrete building, so I would recommend earplugs. There was a social area on the floor I was staying on as well with showers and toilets. All very clean.

Great hostel, clean and friendly
Excellent staff, very friendly and helpful. Location is good, not far from the subway and the Shinjuku madness. As with all the hostels I've used in Japan, the place is extremely clean, and wifi works really well. The cafe is a nice little hangout place with good food and happy hour from 5-7 (draft beer JPY390). Lockers are in the common area outside the room (free to use but JPY1000 key deposit). The street outside, and the hostel, both pretty quiet at night. Definitely would recommend.

Best hostel I've been to!
This was probably the nicest hostel I ever stayed in! Everything was very clean, and I think the simple but stylish design definitely helped it feel so. Although there's bunkbeds I've not had a problem once with anyone shaking the bed. I was staying in the men's floor and there was a bath as well as two showers, and although it might seem like there's quite a few people able to stay on each floor, I've never had a problem with washing. The breakfast is a toasty, granola and tea or coffee, etc, so maybe not the kind of breakfast buffet people may expect, but it's nice nonetheless, and there is a convenience store right down the corner! The staff was super nice and helpful. I tried to practice some Japanese with them personally, but they speak English very well. Probably the best English speaking people I've met on the entire trip! As far as I've seen they're all young people and are very friendly. Lastly, the area is very good. There is a metro station in walking distance (3-5minutes) and even though the hotel is in Shinjuku and close to nightlife, it's also right outside all the bustle and junk of nightime Shinjuku which I really appreciated. The only downside was not having a secure place to leave my luggage. I've been able to leave it at a friends' airbnb, and I doubt anyone there would've stolen it, but if you really want the extra security I'd say find a place you can leave your bigger luggage away, because the place is definitely worth a stay!
