The place is good but a bit hard to find because inside a shared building. Staff people are really nice and speak english but the bad thing is that there is a curfew. After 11pm it is impossible to enter in the hostel. Personally it was the thing that make me go but if you don't want to go out... More

We'd looked forward to our two nights in this sky high hostel. The location is good. Very close to the subway & JR trains. Lots of places to eat (including a grocery store) in the building. But the rooms weren't as comfortable as we'd wished. Really slim mattresses that made for uncomfortable sleep. The air conditioning couldn't quite mask the... More

I stayed here for a night with a friend in a room that was for three people. Split between 2 people it was still reasonable. Oddly, it was set up for four (two bunk beds). It had a sitting area and a nice window. The staff were friendly and helpful. There were vending machines in the sitting area. If you... More

This hostel is very clean, offers very nice views, hospitable staffs that are very helpful, nicely located in kagurazaka district which is very cozy. Many local japanese stayed here and i met many wonderful people. It is a hostel after all and would be better idf the price was brought down. Definitely enjoyed my stay and shall return here.

The people are very nice. Hostel is within walking distance to the must sees of the city has to offer. The only problem i would say is the price. It is really expensive it Tokyo in general so i guess thats is not the main concern of the hostel. But i think it is one of the budget friendly accommodation... More

Tokyo central youth hostel is located at Lidabashi, Tokyo which is a really good area to stay. The nearest train station is at Lidabashi which you can access in 5 mins through the underpass. There are many eateries around this area which we have tried quite a handful and all are yummlicious. According to my japanese penpal, she mentioned is... More

Family of three stayed in the hostel for three nights in December. It's right next to the train station. We had a great city view from the room. It looked like every room has nice view as the hostel is up on the high floors. Staff were all very friendly and helped us with directions and etc. Hostel has a... More

I have stayed in many hostels and this one is good for large groups i imagine. but did not suit us as a couple. The bathrooms are only allowed to be used at certain times, am and pm. The kitchen also has restricted time when they can be used. Bathrooms only on the top floor so you have to go... More
