With all the good reviews I saw of this place, I was surprised and disappointed with many aspects, including cleanliness, staff, and location. We had booked and paid for a room at this place more than a month in advance, and had been travelling throughout the rest of Japan for a week and a half before arriving. On arrival, we... More

The staff is extremly friendly and allways tries to help despite English diffficulties. The place is slightly run down, but they keep the rooms extremly clean. We watched them clean the beds and they even disinfected it. Also the overall admospheare is great and it was more than easy to get to know people. They were very understanding to any... More

It's a multi-floor old building,with old decoration. We stayed in triple-bed room,once entering,unpleasant smell touched our noses. The Room was small and the bathroom was even very small,with just mini-refrigerator, tea bags and set. However,Staff was... More

located near minowa sub way, we stayed at this place around mid april 2015. the place is clam and cozy. we stayed in a double room and the room was equipped with all facilities. we were excited to use the kitchen area, as being vegetarian we can prepare our own food. this place provided free internet and computer access.

I wasn't sure how this place would be as I was booking so last minute and it was all that was available at a good price, but I had a very comfortable stay! It is not far from Minowa subway and if you ask for a map at the station very easy to find, owner was friendly and has good... More

First off, the owner is awesome! Nice guy, and gave me a discount without me asking, because the only room left was a single. The price was about 20 USD. The beds are hard, but it's Japan. Bathrooms and room was clean to the naked eye. The living room/kitchen area was nice. My room came with a TV and there... More

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 :)

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.
