Stayed here five years ago. Returned for five days, four nights with our family of two adults, three kids. Again we had a great stay - everything is clean, comfortable, and friendly. A great mix of tour groups, backpackers, and families. ROOM AND AMENITIES. We stayed in one of the four-bed dorm rooms. Dorm-style bunk beds - big, sturdy, clean,... More

Sakura in just behind the asakusa temple pretty much in the middle of Tokyo. I was in a small twin room with my friend overlooking a perfect view of skytree! Staff are very friendly and it's very clean although it is extremely minimalist so those who have trouble without their teddy bear comforts, I suggest you invest a bit more... More

This Hostel is really near to Senso-ji temple, which is the temple that most people visit on Tokyo, so it is really crawded, at night there are some homeless people sleeping around this area, they are pretty calm so no worries. You also need to consider that the closest metro station is about 8 min walking by the streets of... More

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights and we enjoyed it. We are both very social beings so we were happy to hang with the other visitors every night. The common area is great and the staff are extremely tolerant so you can feel free to drink and talk till the morning if you feel like it. There's... More

Pros-easy to meet people, interesting sightseeing around the area, great service, wifi, great price, easy walk to the train station Cons-quite a distance to downtown Tokyo if you're wanting to stay down there and enjoy the nightlife. Roughly a 30-35 minute ride on the metro Overall a great stay. Met some amazing people from around the world, including Japanese locals.

The guys here were really helpful when I was struggling for money (I was robbed) I am so grateful. The rooms are somewhat cramped and, honestly, I had terrible nights' sleeps due to the intriguing Japanese phenomenon of very loud snoring - This has been the case of every dorm I've stayed in so far. The common room is great,... More

We stayed here 6 nights. The twin-bedroom is very small and there is no closet/wardrobe, chair or table. Had to put our luggage/clothes on the floor. But besides the small room it was a good place to stay. Location is great near Senjo temple and Asakusa shops and restaurants.

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.
