I will be in Tokyo for a few days next month and need to decide where I am staying - Shibuya or Shinjuku?

I am taking a brief (3-4 days) trip to Tokyo and I'm going to stay in either Shinjuku or Shibuya (for their proximity to Chofu). I was initially leaning towards Shinjuku because it appeared convenient and inexpensive, but I have been warned that it is a pretty horrid place to stay and that Shibuya would be far superior.
Is Shinjuku really a "hellhole" to be avoided or is it fine for a brief stay? Is Shibuya the clearly superior choice? Am I missing a better option that is also close to Chofu?
