I very much enjoyed my stay at this hostel. It is conveniently located near Asakusa station and near the beautiful sensoji temples. The staff was nice and helpful, the rooms were clean, bathrooms were clean. The common room was very relaxing. The wifi was free but a little slow at times. All in all i recommend this hostel to anybody

-Let's be honest, how long are you going to stay inside when there is Tokyo to explore? This hostel was pretty cheap. I went with a group of 15 high school students and 2 adults. The rooms we got were 3 dorm-style with 3 bunks (total of 6 beds). Overall, I was pretty satisfied with the stay. One thing that... More
