We got off at the Asakusabashi station and headed to look for the hostel. The time was around 11pm which was 1 hour before the check-in time ended. However, we couldn't find the hostel for the one hour. We walked east, west, north, and south but couldn't find it. There were no signs indication the location of it. We asked... More

The staff here are wonderful. Ask for anything, and they will help you find it, do it, see it, eat it, use it. Whatever you need, they are extremely accommodating. The facilities are good. Wifi connection is great in the common area. The rooms don't have a lot of privacy, but they are clean and comfortable. There is a kitchen... More

After staying in some excellent hostels in Japan for similar prices we were pretty disappointed with our stay here. The wifi did not work the whole time we were there. Only two showers for each gender. The males bathroom had broken doors. The place is very very noisy. People walking up and down the stairs all night and I got... More

Basic room. Bathrooms and the kitchen area was ok, clean enough. Close to subway station. Stayed in a dorm. Not much space but guess it's just as to be expected. Wifi is free but only available in the common area, not in rooms. Annoying that you and to be out of the hostel between 1000 and 1600. Was ok, I... More

You have to be carefull because there is a curfew at 23h 30 and you have to leave the hotel between 10:30 and 4pm. So it forces you to have a really daylife trip (bad if you like to party hard). But if you don't mind place is good and staff easy going.

I've stayed here twice for two nights with large groups of teenage American tourists. It's located close to the Asakusa-bashi train station and in a quiet, safe part of Tokyo. It does take a bit of navigating to find it but luckily the hostel has little signs put up along the street to help guide you once you get close.... More

Stayed there for a week and half, and it was amazing! The staff is kind and awesome, they always try to help you if you're looking for something in Tokyo! I took the dormitory, it's clean, depending who you get to sleep in the same room as you, it can be really really noisy... I know what I'm talking about!... More

I stayed at Tokyo Sumidagawa Youth Hostel in December of 2008 with a school tour group. Located a few blocks away from Asakusa-bashi station, the hostel is easy to find, with English signs directing you through the lane ways to the building. It is in a nice, clean area and the lanes are well lit. The building itself looks clean... More

Although this hostel was clean enough and the staff friendly and helpful enough, the room I stayed in left much to be desired. The room was tiny by normal standards and yet they had three beds crammed in together. There was a walkway barely a foot wide to walk to your bed. The storage lockers were tiny and obviously couldn't... More

Brilliant location, and one of the easiest hostels I found on my trip through Japan! The staff are friendly and can give you information on the area. The hostel has Wifi, Pay computers, laundry and a kitchen. The curfew for this hostel is 11pm, which was long enough to have a long day sightseeing or shopping. The dorm rooms were... 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.
