I really liked this hostel! We only stayed one night, however, it was well worth the minor effort to get there. Super friendly and helpful staff, very nice accommodations. Located near good places to eat too!

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

Stayed with a group of 6 in a mixed 8 bed dormitory. Friendly staff and everything we needed. Had some little extras such as a cheap breakfast, some couches, recommendations for the Asakusa area and things to do around Japan, video games, etc. It was a good stay and a nice place to rest my bones, but nothing too special.

The Asakusa Hostel in Tokyo is one of the best hostels I have stayed at and I travel allot. The accommodations are great, location is perfect, and the staff are helpful.
