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

Thank you very much for your review. We are very happy to hear that you had a nice stay with us. Although we are surprised that our staff did not point the Japanese bar street out to you. Since we mostly recommend this street and it is written on our own map as well (as Japanese Bar street). We can... 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

I´ve spent 4 nights at the Sakura Hostel and was really happy with that choice!! The staff is very friendly and helpful 24 hours a day, everything is clean and you can even have breakfast for a low charge. Especially the location couldn´t be any better, since it´s very quiet in the street but only a few walking-minutes away from... 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. Each bunk has an individual curtain, light, and electrical outlet in my room. The location is in the heart of the tourist area where the Senso-ji temple is located.... More

Great location close to popular shopping arcades and walking distance to 3 train stations, one of which goes directly to Narita airport. A large, clean hostel with helpful staff. I DEFINITELY recommend this place! And I will go back there in the future.

Since we went with a school group, and were on a budget, Sakura Hostel met all of our needs and was in a lovely neighbourhood. The temple nearby was beautiful and we enjoyed walking through the streets of Asakusa with its little shops and restaurants. It's a quiet residential area and we liked that. The rooms were great for accommodating... More
