Although it's already few months after my trip, I want to write some review about Khaosan Tokyo Original. We go for 7 days, with twin bed room (bunkbed) and one day in dorm. When we first came, we didn't know that the staffs will be there on 8 AM (while we arrived there before 7 AM), so we have to... More

Female dormitories are nice (curtains, small lockers for valuables). You can wear shoes when you walk into their kitchen/lobby area. I think one of showers was a little clogged when I was there, but it might be fixed now. Some of the restrooms are tiny, so use the first floor one if anything. The baggage storage area seemed a bit... More

Small and basic in room but good help with guidance, maps, internet and free tea and coffee plus kitchen facilities. Also notice you could work there for a month or more and get free board plus plenty of time to explore the city!

For those who like backpack traveling please read. But for those who like to spend you trip in a luxury place you can ignore my review. If you plan to go traveling in Tokyo, Japan and you still don’t have a place to rest, I recommend you Khaosan Tokyo. This place is a hostel with cheap price and just a... More

We didn't stay at this hostel, we were at asakusa annexe which is no longer operating (a shame). I wanted to comment that the khaosan brand provide excellent hostels at reasonable prices (for japan). The kitchen's are good, shampoo in the showers, loo roll in the loos, free tea, free coffee and best of all tonnes of advice! Dorms seem... More

Summary: Good value, friendly staff, clean but the rooms are tiny. Best for travellers who are going to use their hostel to sleep. We stayed here for 6 nights during our trip to Tokyo on June 2013. We booked the private bedroom for 2. The room is small and basically just fits a bunk bed, leaving a small space to... More

I booked a spacious 4-bed room on the 3rd floor with 3 other friends, which had a breathtaking view over the Sumida River, and in the mornings I would get an amazing view of the sun as it rose past the iconic Tokyo Skytree and Asahi Headquarters building. The amenities provided were more than sufficient, and the bathrooms were supremely... More

Had an awful experience in a twin bed private for 2 nights. Our booking was originally for 6 nights but we were forced to cut our stay short and move elsewhere. Generally, the hostel is very dated, there is no atmosphere and it has a dirty feel to it. The private room was uncomfortably small - i understand that space... More

We came as a group of 6. 4 of us took a 4-bed room, the other two took a 2-bed room. Our room (4-beds) are bunk beds. The beds are comfy, the rooms were clean. Our room was apparently the biggest, so we had just enough space to open our suitcases and do our packing. However, my friend who stayed... More

I had an awful experience in a "Basic twin private" room. The room smelled horribly and even the air from the air condition had a bad smell, it was disgusting. The room had a bunk bed but the floor area was so small that we could barely open a suitcase, and opening both of them at the same time was... More
