Stayed here for 8 nights. Great staff! We had a homemade pizza party here one night. Very close to subway stations, convenience stores, supermarkets and shopping malls. There's a bike rental place near the river and you can rent a bike for 300yen per day. A lot of printed information available in the dining room - brochures, coupons, area maps... More

This hostel was in such a great location. It was literally a 2 minute walk from the Tokyo Metro. There were lots of places to visit as well as eat within walking distance of the hostel. The rooms were clean as well as the bathrooms. The common area was a bit crowded, but the rooms had plenty of space.

this hostel in very closed to asakusa area, sensoji temple, tokyo sky tree and many interesting places, you need to walk in a minutes to go there, the staff are very friendly and helpfull, the room is very comfort to stay, if you get the room with the riverside view is better

The hostel staff were very friendly. The showers were extremely tight if you're a big person, but its understood for being Japan. The rooms were clean but a tight fit. The hostel is a hop away from the subway station and a 10 min walk from Sinoji shrine.

Although it's 7 months since I've been to Japan, I thought that I should share my opinions about Khaosan Tokyo Original. I've stayed here for 6 days. "Backpacker's dream" it's a clean place, comfortable, with a very convenient price and a perfect location. Khaosan Tokyo Original offers all that: a perfect location in Asakusa, the old Tokyo (Edo), it's very... More

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
