For the money it's pretty worth it. Location is good although pretty far from Shibuya and Shinjuku if you plan to explore those areas by night. The bed was actually the most comfy from all the hostels I've stayed in Tokyo and pretty spacious. That's the most important thing for me. Other than that it was your average budget old... More

I've been there for more than 10 days. They have the minimum to be established and some small luxuries. The bathrooms are clean, has cheap washing and drying machines and also a living room with cable television.

Close to the train station and one of the cheaper places to stay in tokyo, but cramped. Staff were nice enough but it definitely wasn't anything I'd recommend. Good for exploring the eastern side of Tokyo but I'd try k's house before this one.

I stayed here my first night in Tokyo. I was very disappointed in how a capsule hotel turned out to look like; everything looked rusty and worn down. My blanket smelt like sweat. Not sure if it was because I was only staying one night but I'm 100% sure they didn't wash the sheets of the previous guy. And I'm... More

I have been to tokyo multiple times and stayed here every time. About 3000 yen per person per night for a double bed room and 2000 yen per night for a capsule bed, its one of the cheapest places you can find in tokyo. Location is great too, its only around the corner from the asakusa metro station exit (3... More

I traveled India for a month so depending on your standards of living this place is not so bad. Yes people smoke right outside the rooms so it can seep through and make the room smell. Tv is only good if you speak Japanese. The owner creates his own prices per day which can go up to 25000 yen, which... More

Hotel Kawase is a pretty good capsule hotel and is perhaps the cheapest accommodation in the Asakusa area. The capsules were clean and comfortable. Highly recommended if you'r on a budget. The heating was also pretty good.

I stayed in three hostels (two, including this one, were capsules) in Tokyo. This was the cheapest. All three dorms were cramped and quite dated. This one was BY FAR the cheapest. If you need a base in Tokyo for an extended period, and you're flexible to this place's peculiarities, it doesn't get better than this. 1) The capsules here... More

The rooms were very basic and not clean, and the hotel itself looked more like a cheap hostel, but I could deal with that because of convenient location, although the hotel is deffinitely overpriced. But what would make me never stay in this hotel again is the service. 1) I decided to go out to the next-door shop and didn't... More

This hotel is a bunch of problems and crazy rules. For example, after you check-out if you want to keep your laggage in the hotel they will keep it only till 9 PM. After 9 PM they will throw it away in the street! Thats what we were told when we asked about if we could keep the luggage in... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
