Stayed there back in 2010 with two others. If you split the costs down on a 4-bunk bed, you're literally staying for about $21-$25 CAD. Ikebukuro is one of Tokyo's most fun areas to stay/play/and hang out. The staff are bilingual, and the cafe serves great food. Ikebukuro station serves a few of the most famous lines like Akihabara, Shinuku, Roppongi, and Harajuku.
