This hotel on the 4 - 7 floors of a building just 10 minutes from the Ueno metro station was basic, clean and low key and didn't seem flooded by the usual mob of backpacking tourists. It had a modest kitchen common area and a somewhat spotty internet wi-fi (which seemed to be the case most places we went in... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on the last leg of our trip. This is a very basic youth hostel, but very accommodating. The beds were comfy, the bathroom was clean. Very simple. The staff are so friendly and helpful. They went online and printed me a map of where i can find takeaway food to bring back to the... More

The location is probably the best aspect of this hostel, being only a 10min walk to Akihabara (electric town), and Akihabara train station and about a 15min walk to Ueno park and Zoo. The size of the room is pleasant in comparison to most rooms in Tokyo, offering plenty of space to spread out. This hostel is perfect for a... More

We're a couple and booked a twin room for 1 night. We slept on a bunkbed and it was wide enough for us to lay together to watch a movie on our computer. The room was quite large for only two people. It's very bare bones and simple but reception had everything we needed (a face towel, a hair dryer,... More

Thank you for your stay. Honestly speaking, the bed size might be a bit small for bigger person. The room size will be depends on the situation. Since we have the good option on the day, we provided it to you. Our location is very convenient, but please make sure the direction in advance for the first time since we... More

Very friendly staff but disappointing room - hard matresses and really crammed doorm rooms. A lot of travellers which is always nice. Ok wifi as well. Location might be a little off but not too bad - a medium walk and a medium/long subway ride takes you most places in the massive city. If you dont know anything about tokyo... More

Thank you for your stay. If you feel the matress is hard, please let us know since we have the extra. The room size will be depends on the situation. That night was so busy that we could not provide any other option. If you like shopping, Shinjuku, Shibuya and Harajuku will be good as you told. Our hostel is... More

Booked for 3 people room, but they gave us 4 beds (2 bunkbeds). A train station is very near, about a 5 min walk. I get confused with the train station exits and I ended up taking the longer walk. This hostel stay was average and not bad. I would recommend to stay here.

Thak you very much for your stay. We have many stations within walking distance. If you want to get the direction, please check our official web site or email us. Since "Youth Hostel" is for young budget traveller or family, different from general hotel. Though price is not expensive, amenity is not for free and we ask the guests some... More
