Got there for a night. We had a 5 bed room for the 4 of us. I do not remember if the room number is 404. Ensuite bathroom; beds to be made by ourselves. Quite big kitchen with several cooking stations.

This hostel is fantastic. The dorm room was spacious, and the downstairs dinning area and kitchen is wonderful. The hostel is in a great location and easy access to public transport. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. It is one of the cleanest hostels I have stayed in during my travel. Very modern and well maintained.

Best hostel I have ever stayed in!!! Nice welcome from the staff at the desk, and informative. Super clean! Great facilities! Great location! The only negative thing I would say about this hostel is some of the travellers who work to stay for free don't offer the same great service as the Japanese staff, some of them are quite rude....

I'm Japanese and spent quite a few nights at this hostel late last month and early this month. The dorms (both 8-bed and 10-bed) were quite spacious and clean. The best of all was that each bunk-bed was attached to the wall, so it barely squeaked and I was rarely disturbed by other guests while sleeping. It's a very popular... More

Stayed at 10 bed dorms. I never expected that the bunk bed will be this comfy, like really! The mattress is soft and wide. I love their spacious kitchen with complete kitchen utensils. I love the internet speed. I love the bathroom, even it's a shared one. I love their lounge with massage chair and comic books. I love the... More

The best stay we had in Japan. The staff here we found to be very helpful and welcoming, always smiling and chatting with us. The rooms themselves are great we stayed in the 8 bed deluxe dorm and found the beds to be big and cosy with the design of the bunks to give you a little extra privacy then... More

this is an amazing hostel. the dorms are great, modern with awesome private beds and bathroom. the large hostel is full of young people eager to socialise and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. the prices are good too, depending on what kind of room you would like. the location is perfect too, right in asakusa. definitely recommended.

unfriendly staff, private room is very basis, expensive. It's a very basis hostel. The price is way too high. Especially for a private room. Although the private room is large, it's noisy and so is the airconditioning. Location is ok. Staff is not very cooperative. For this price it's better to book a decent hotel.

This is my third Asakusa hostel and there is no way but to give 5 pt! I booked a 6 bed female dorm with 3 very nice bunk beds. They allow much privacy with your own light and socket to recharge your phone etc. All rooms are ensuite. Small lockers for your valuables are inside the room and you recieve... More
