    try this http://www.superhotel.co.jp/en/index.html. But do take note, most hotel has different pricing for number of occupant.

    If you don't mind to stay a bit out, well that means an hour away or so from Shijuku, BUT near Tokyo station, try this:

    I always stay there, it is very clean, about SGD 45-50 depending on the exchange rate.

    Other one you can find here:

    If u are looking for night life and dont plan to sleep much at night. Stay at Shibuya and Shinjuku. Not at Tokyo station. If you see map. Shinjuku and Shibuya is on left side of map. Tokyo station is on right side of map. And tokyo station area is dead town after 8pm.... u will die of boredom there. and if u go hang out at Shibuya and Shinjuku and want to go back to hotel at Tokyo station... waste of your money taking cab.

    Other areas with night life are Ikebukoro and Ueno (Ameyoko)

    Most of the cheaper hotels are near Ueno (the Marucho I gave you), but there are some near Ikebukuro too, just try the links I gave above, or do a search at Google with 'cheap hotels tokyo'

    Check out this site
    www.toyoko-inn.com

    It's a chain hotel that offers really reasonable rates. I stayed in the hotel's single room in Himeji for 3 nights, and it was very pleasant. Room was small but, true to Japanese standards, was SUPER clean.

    Yeah, I recommend the Toyoko Inns too. Super clean, breakfast included and rooms are actually bigger than some of the usual hotels.

    They have an offer at the moment for internet bookings, if you become a member (a 50% discount at JPY 1,500), which is to stay 10 nights and get the 11th night free (single room rate if twin sharing) & Sundays and public holidays at a 30% discount. I stayed at the Asakusa Komagata. Quite convenient.
