I've stayed in a number of hostels both in Asia and Europe, khaosan tokyo kabuki is easily the best in terms of facilities, security and experience. It's in a great location in asakusa, the staff are super friendly and helpful. After 3 nights me and my girlfriend were moved from dorms into a private room for no extra charge :-)... More

Khaosan Tokyo Kabuki is a gem in Asakusa area. The famous Kaminarimon Gate, Nakamise Street and Sensoji Temple are just few steps away. The famed Tokyo Skytree can be viewed and walkable going to Sumida River. The lounge area looks nice like you're in a real janapanese house and with the historic SuperFamicom that you can play around with Super... More

My favorite part about this hostel was the staff. They were so friendly and went out of their way to ensure that every guest was happy and comfortable. It was a joy to come back to their warm smiles and partake in conversation. As far as the dorms they are nice, better than your average. The location was great, nestled... More

I had a great time at this hostel. The staff members were friendly. I stayed in a 4 person room with our own bathroom and toilet. Room and bathroom were clean. Bed was comfortable and rooms are warm. The shower was strong and no fluctuation in temperature. Soap and shampoo provided. Towel rental for 50 yen. It is very near... More

No need to add much what the others said, but it is true what you read below: great location, lovely staff, rooms are small (4 comfortable beds only) with their own washroom, SUPER clean, very cozy. I think if they added breakfast or had more activities, it would make it even more perfect, but the way it is now is... More

Stay here last year 2013, all room just 4 beds with private bath room and toilet attached. Most important, lift available and you no need to carry your trolley luggage go up via staircase. There are other Khaosan Hostel around Asasuka but Kabuki was the nearest to Metro/Train station. Welldone Kabuki Hostel ^^

I stayed here for 4 nights and it was an absolute pleasure. The staff are super friendly and we're really really helpful. They organise great things for the guests to do, which is great way to see the city with actual locals. The rooms were spotless and the beds were probably the most comfortable I've ever slept in, in a... 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.
