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

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
