Only stayed two nights, room was well equipped & comfortable, a little dated but that's not on our priority list. Very central to Minowa station. We booked a visit to view sumo wrestling training at a local stable, we were escorted by Daisuke, from Bakpakl Hostel, on bicycles which was very refreshing at 8am. The training was mesmerising & intense,... More

nice location, a little bit far from downtown, but close to subway stations. not much commerce around, but awesome staff, great people staying at, and, as always is the case in japan, very very clean. the bad side was the room with 6 people

I booked a 10 people room but actually it was divided into 2 part so we were only 5 in my part! The hostel is situated just near Asakusa neightborhood were you can find temples, shopping and local restaurants/bars. Receptionnists are cool and the hostel offers nice facilities : massage chairs, computers, hot drinks ... Nice :)

This place is good for people looking to find a place to stay in Tokyo on a budget. It has amenities such as a common area kitchen, hot private showers, computer lounge, and a smoking area. We booked a room for two and since this was not the room we booked (didn't have a bathroom) so I was given a... More

It's cheap and has a good location. When me and my friend arrived at the hostel, they had made a mistake with the booking, so we had to stay in two different dorm rooms. Also, the staff can't really speak english. It's not the best hostel in the area but they can accommodate a lot of people and the price... More

We stayed in this hostel for a week. The location was quite good, 10min walk from a metro station and 20 min walk from Asakusa, a really nice area. The area was quiet and safe with a supermarket, post office and several convenient stores nearby. We thought we had a twin room but had to share a very small double... More

Stayed here for 4 nights, we booked the room for 3 Adult with Ensuite Bathroom, the room looks old,also unfortunately the room with a Wallpaper decor is not favourable for me, but maybe it suits for another guests. The room itself are clean enough, but we found the room really had a tendency to be dusty, and somehow made us... More

Really nice hostel, amazing people and amazing atmosphere. 5 minutes from Minowa Station, the neighborhood is really nice and quiet and it feels perfectly safe even when you're walking home in the middle of the night after a crazy night out in Roppongi. Definitely gonna stay there again!

Too expensive, small and old, good internet connection, I little bit far of the touristic attractions, good front desk attention. Tokyo is a very expensive city but I believe you can find better options, this hostel was ok for a couple of nights but I won't be there for more time

This hostel does nothing more or nothing less than it claims too but this isn't a problem because it is exactly what is needed; a bed, a shower, a toilet and a place to relax. Staff were friendly and helpful when they need to be. I personally did not use the kitchen facilities but no one else who was staying... 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.
