Fun, clean hostel.”

I was here for a week in early December. Walking distance to some decent nightlife spots in Shinjuku (e.g., Golden Gai is about a 6-minute walk). Rooms and facilities kept quite clean. Common area was buzzing most of the time, sometimes it was very loud but the noise doesn't carry over into the rooms. I met great people here as a 30 y/o solo traveler, though I definitely felt a bit on the "old" side at times. Small grievances: capsule-style bunks/pods are on the small side; occasionally the keypad for entering the dorm room wouldn't work for a few minutes, which can be frustrating; locker built into pod is very small (could just barely fit 13.3" laptop; had to tilt it on its side); not enough storage space for luggage; shoes can be worn indoors except in the shower room; on three occasions the shower water turned lukewarm for several minutes mid-shower before heating back up to a comfortable temperature; on-site restaurant appears to only offer meat-based dishes.

New and Clean Dormitory ”

It’s a new dormitory with super easy and fast check in and check out process. The dorms are very clean and with very good security. Common area is quite spacious with kitchen provided. Receptionists can all speak really good English so you do not have to worry on this. You will have to key in passcode everytime before you entering the dorms. It’s surrounded by quite a number of convenient shops. However, it’s not very near to the main happening area of Shinjuku. 10 minutes walk is needed. But overall I am really satisfied with the stay here.

Incredible staff, well thought out design and facilities, and free use of a smartphone! No need to buy a SIM card. Very generous amenity! The hostel is new so it’s clean and well maintained. It’s a solid 15 min walk from the Shinjuku station but easy to find and in a little local neighbourhood with plenty of convenience stores. Oh and the free smartphone is all set up in your bed so you just take it and go. No lengthy sign up/sign out. Incredible place that’s has thought through all the details.

The ladies’ dorm was clean and well-maintained. I like that there is an automatic lights-dimming in place after a certain time that. Good for those who wish to rest earlier. The toilet was clean, but I really wish there’s a more powerful hairdryer. The current ones are really weak and takes forever to get through. Staff were friendly and pleasant! Thank you.

Solo traveling made easy”

Traveling to Tokyo might seem expensive for most of the travelers due to high cost of accommodations to choose from. But staying in Unplan Shinjuku makes it affordable. You can get free breakfast and the security from accessing the main door to your own room is good too. The only advice that I can say to the other travelers that will book in this hotel is buy Toei Subway Line One-Day pass so you can easily access the shinjuku Line (shinjuku-sanchome) and for those who only purchase the Tokyo metro 24-hr pass, you can access it by using marunouchi line (shinjukugyoen-mae) and 9-10 walk from the station. Overall I enjoyed staying in this hotel. Great value for money.

Good value and good privacy”

I stayed at UNPLAN Shinjuku for one week, and enjoyed my stay. It's much better than most other hostels because the design of the beds is similar to a capsule hotel, but each contains a small safe! The breakfasts are great and a very social environment. The staff provide a very Western-style service, so don't expect a traditional Japanese style service when interacting with staff. The walk from Shinjuku station is about 10-15 minutes, but you can use the entrance to the Shinjuku-sanchōme (S-2) subway station as an undercover shortcut to Shinjuku station. My only issues were: - The pillows provided are very lumpy and uncomfortable. - The safes were too small to fit a laptop. - While the bed capsules were great, they could not stop the sound of snoring, which made it very difficult to sleep most nights. Bring ear plugs!

Everything was clean and accessible, but for the same amount of money, I could've stayed at a cheap business hotel with a private room and bathroom. It was a little ways away from any metro station and about a 15 minute walk away from Shinjuku station.
