I stayed there for 1 night. Very good location. the hostel is creepy, dirty room, and my room mates made it worse, clothes every where, bad smells. Suprisingly.Staff weren't friendly tho it's Japan. I didn't really enjoy the stay, I checked out very early in the morning,

Nice staff, a little bit too far from station The really bad thing : there is no heater along the way from the room to the bathroom/Toilet. Its too cold in winter. Moreover, we had to make a bed sheet by ourselves. It's ok but Its make your hostel less confortable. I have traveled to many countries and many hostel.... More

I'm not a big traveller, and it was my first time going alone to Japan - however, I have no complaints about Sakura Hostel. The location is extremely convenient and the staff are very friendly and always willing to lend a hand. I stayed in a mixed dorm for nearly two weeks, and an all-female dorm for a night and... More

For three night I stayed at this hostel and met a few people. The bunk beds were comfortable and the sheet were clean. During nights no loud noises were heard from inside the bedroom or from the neighbors. The bathrooms were decently cleaned, as well. The relaxation room is in front of the reception and was a good thing to... More

The Sakura Hostel Asakusa is in a perfect location to explore both historical Asakusa and the rest of Tokyo along its easy train lines. The hostel is full of young backpackers and also some older groups and families. There is no problem meeting people from around the world in the nice communal area on the main floor, but the rooms...

We stayed in Sakura Hostel since we did not want to spend much on accommodation, but more on shopping by the kids. Our criteria for selecting this property were price, location, and room cleanliness. 1. Compared to others, the price we paid for our 4-bed room was reasonable. 2. It was near beautiful Sensoji temple, the many shops and eateries... More

Pros: This is a well run organization with reception staff available 24 hours a day. Location is quite good as it is right next to Shinnakamise (covered street market) and Sensoji (Tokyo's oldest temple), and is a 10 minute walk to the nearest metro station (Asakusa Station). It is also very closely located to the Skytree Tower. The wifi connection... More

No complaint for the price u paid. Good service, Very clean toilet, strong wifi, and open kitchen for u to cook. The bed is comfortable and the blanket is good enough to keep u warm. The only down side is u have to go through the freezing cold windy corridor to reach the shared bathroom to get a hot shower.

Our group of 11 paxs visited Tokyo from 17 to 24 Dec and we stayed in Sakura Hostel Asakusa. We had great time in Tokyo and thanks to Sakura Hostel Asakusa for being a strategic place to stay.

I got a bed in the shared dormitory, 8 ppls in one small room. I didnt enjoy my night there because my roommates were very noisy till 1am. I wish the hostel had a noise policy like other hostels....The curtains were also light and thin so it did not block the main room light. Bathrooms were clean and the common... 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.
