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

I stayed with two friends for 6 nights during an apparent heat wave last month, in a private four person room. For someone not good at dealing with heat, I was happy to find that the aircon did a great job in the rooms. The hostel is easy to find, located in an older part of Tokyo nearby to Senso-ji... More

It is quite easy to find the hostel once you reach any station near by Asakusa. The location is great, close to many sight seeing spots, temples, small restaurants and pubs. The rooms are all right and the bathroom was good enough,

Great hostel with friendly staffs, clean rooms, and nice atmosphere. Just a few minutes walks from one of the greatest tourist attraction in Tokyo, Asakusa. Convenient stores are very near (less than a minute walking) and you can grab some bento and beer anytime you like. The only downside of this hostel is its access to public transport. IT IS... More

As far as a budget hostel is concerned this one was fantastic! Asakusa is a great area to start your Tokyo tour, I recommend one full day to explore the local area. Unfortunately the staff don't know much to recommend in the local area and will send you scouting elsewhere. However a very short walk from the hostel will lead... More

Upon arriving late at the hostel, the reception was still open and staff were very friendly and helpful. Dorm rooms were exceptionally clean, and well laid out, but with lockers only large enough for a small backpack (suitcases/large backpacks under the bed). Great bathrooms, laundry machines available, as well as the use of the kitchen. Provided meals seemed quite small... More
