I do not recommend this hostel for the fact that the toilets and bathrooms were both very dirty. The toilet was so bad that I couldn't use it for the first day (had to find a park toilet to use). When I complained, it was cleaned, but the smell lingered. At least I could use it on emergency. Unfortunately, on... More

I booked a room at this place at the last minute, as I could not find another hostel in Tokyo within that price range. Based on other places I've been to, I was expecting something better. The neighborhood is deserted, with no good places to eat or to go out. One goes to a hostel, mostly, for the vibe, but... More

- Considerably cheap accommodation since most of hostels/ hotels in Tokyo are very expensive - 10 min walk from JR train and subway - Minami-Senju station - The guy manning the reception (sorry I forgot his name, not sure if it's Kenji) speaks very good English - There's free wifi but you'll only get good reception in the lobby area...

I stayed for 4 nights there. The stay is comfortable for the price you pay. As the name stated, great for backpackers. Free wifi available. Computers at the lobby can be used too. Rooms are clean. They will close from 11AM to 4PM for cleaning. During this time, guest are not allowed to stay in the hotel. The closest station... More

We stayed for the first time for 5 nights at Tokyo backpackers. I was surprised about it! The rooms are simple, there is a dormitory room on one floor for men and another one for women. There are enough showers avaiable, and all of them were clean. You could also do laundry easily, without paying too much. Staff is friendly,... More

Not a bad stay if you take in the price, Rooms were clean and the location was good with a train station only 10 minutes walk away. Just don't expect to much. The computers provided are useless so I recommend bringing a laptop if you have one. Be carefull in the surrounding area as it houses a large percent of... More

I had two stays and totally three nights at the Tokyo Backpackers, around 15 walking distance from the Minami-Senju station. I stayed in a female room with six beds. Actually I slept quite well in the three nights. The room is very clean. The toilet is clean too. The shower room is in the 1st floor. I would say the... More
