The guys here were really helpful when I was struggling for money (I was robbed) I am so grateful. The rooms are somewhat cramped and, honestly, I had terrible nights' sleeps due to the intriguing Japanese phenomenon of very loud snoring - This has been the case of every dorm I've stayed in so far. The common room is great,... More

We stayed here 6 nights. The twin-bedroom is very small and there is no closet/wardrobe, chair or table. Had to put our luggage/clothes on the floor. But besides the small room it was a good place to stay. Location is great near Senjo temple and Asakusa shops and restaurants.

We got one big room for eight people since we were two family travelling together. We save a lot instead of having to book separate 3-4 rooms with kids who are strictly counted in Japan. The location is a 15 minute walk to the JR line which was too far for the kids to always walk from a long day... More

Such a fun hostel, they organized a group outing to watch kabuki. Very clean, and the shower facilities were good (a solid outer door with a folding inner shower door), always a concern for me. Arigato!

I spent about an hour walking round looking for this hostel as its damn hard to find and the websites directions were terrible. Having said that, that hostel was OK, but seemed to be full of school children during my visit. Good location

We stayed here for three nights in September before moving to Chiba afterwards. In that short time, it was an okay experience - not stellar and not that bad, either. Location is not its strongest suit, since it is around 15-20 minute walk from Asakusa station. What can be its "saving grace" is that Asakusa Temple and Nakamise are along... More

We stayed here (couple + family member) for 3 nights. We found the lobby and entrance area to be clean and welcoming. Despite some of the other reviews, we found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The common 'kitchen area' is quite small and compact (as are many things in Japan), but useful. We experienced some torrential rain during... More

I stayed there for 1 night. Very good location. the hostel is creepy, dirty room, and my room mates made it worse, clothes every where, bad smells. Suprisingly.Staff weren't friendly tho it's Japan. I didn't really enjoy the stay, I checked out very early in the morning,

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
