Location is good. You won't be able to get to Asakusa station only using JR due to it a bit outside the yamanote line but it is very well connected. It is on a quiet street with many shops around as well as bars and food places within 10-15 minutes walk. Many budget places are close by, you can get... More

Super nice stay! The personal was friendly and ready to give you the best kinds of service possible. The area had a old feeling and was quiet which we liked. The metro system was easy – we took the Ginza line to Shibuya or Ueno station where the JR line was, so places like Harajuku and Shinjuku was never far... More

Basic accommodation but a great location and very helpful, friendly staff. Brief walk to sunday and a direct loin by train to the airport. Good shopping and restaurants close-by. A short walk to Tokyo's new viewing opportunity, "Skytower".

Stayed there for a week with friends. Had a great time. The staff was friendly and went above and beyond to make our stay in Tokyo a great experience. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms were spacious. The kitchen area was nice, with enough room to meet and talk to other travelers.

Helpful staff, good location, cleaning, facilities (4Pc for the internet use 24h, nice kitchen..). Many informations about the language, places to go to. The most difficult was to get the right train with the right ticket (too fast or too slow), but easy to find from Asakusa station, and very convenient station. I recommand this place

My wife and I stayed here for three nights earlier this month and had a great time. This was the first place we stayed in Japan and we had a very warm welcome. The staff is so welcoming and easy to talk to. We booked the double room, which was very reasonable for our needs. With the bunk bed (with... More

I was travelling through Japan with a friend of mine and we had both planned to stay our last two nights at the Khaosan Laboratory which was on the other side of the Sumida river. Thanks to a screw up in our booking, we had to separate and the nice people at Laboratory booked me a bed at Khaosan Samurai.... More

Nothing special...I was a bit disapointed about this hostel, i thought there was a smoking area in the terrace but instead the smoking area is a tiny tiny cube near the reception, it's cold and unconfortable. I think this hostel is a bad option if you are a smoker. The showers were okay, rooms tiny again. Lacks personality!
