Sakura Hostel Asakusa was the perfect location near the senso-ji temple and the subway. They also give clear directions on how to get to the hostel from the subway. One of my favorite aspects of the hostel was the privacy of each bunk, having a curtain. The common living area was clean and inviting and the staff was exceptional. We... More

Decent hostel in Asakusa (close to Sensō-ji temple and some good restaurants). Next subway stop is a 10 minute walk away. Stayed in a double-room. The room only contains 2 beds and AC/heating didnt really work well. It was very hot in the room during the day and quite cold at night. We didn't manage to open the windows. Additionally... More

The hostel isn't bad it's just there are much better ones nearby. Try nui or k's hostel in Asakusabashi. In Sakura the decor is a bit dated. All the rooms have bare cement walls so it feels a bit uninviting. The atmosphere isn't as good as the other hostels. It is in a fantastic location and it's not a bad... More

The location is one of the main strengths of the hostel. It has a big commom area. The rooms in the basement have no wifi at all!! And there is no air circulation. The cleaning of the bathrooms is really poor.About the breakfast it could be more assorted. An important point that is really bad, is that during our stay... More

Great hostel-Good location down the street from Senso-Ji temple and in short walking distance to Asakusa and Tawaramachi metro stations. Nicely sized rooms with 2 bunk beds rather than the general 8-10 with most hostels but not very clean beds. I realized I had bed bug bites on the way to Nagoya, I say "possible" because they could have been... More

I don't usually stay in hostels but let me tell you, it was a very nice stay! Our room was for 4 people and the bunk-beds were way larger than any other bunk bed I have seen. Comfortable, cozy, AC, extremely clean (let's call it "japanese clean" because that means it was sparkling), nice showers. The only thing I didn't... More
