“BEST HOSTEL I HAVE STAYED AT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

tokyo was the first stop of my 2 month travel. it was my first time sharing a room in a hostel and i HATED it. but after staying in countless hostels this is by far the best. the staff are lovely and so so helpful, this is the place to go to meet other travellers, the common area is great and the hostel is in a great location. everyone really makes an effort to talk to each other and go out together, which i havent found in other hostels. the rooms are a bit cold but i was there in january so its to be expected i suppose. overall i had the best time there and in ks house. would come back again for sure. its not full of drunken teenagers, perfect if youre in your 20s and want to have fun but experience the country as well!

I absolutely loved my stay at K's House.
It is located right near a subway station, 7-11 and another subway station around the corner where you can catch the express train to either Narita or Haneda airport.
The bed in the dorm was comfy, the bathroom always clean and had great common areas to meet other travellers.
The staff were all lovely and friendly and able to help with any information you may need in tokyo.

This was a fine place to stop for a few nights. Easy enough to get around if you are good with maps and subways. The girls worked it out. Free wifi is a bonus. The rooms are a little bit small no room to put suitcase on the ground. Bathroom needs heating - was freezing. Suitable for a short stay.

Good clean hostel close to kuramae station and 7-11. Has everything you need including good wifi, hot showers and helpful English speaking staff. There is some nice sights to see in the asakusa area and the rest of the city is easily accessed via kuramae station. The rooms are very small but we didn't spend any time in there besides being fast asleep so it's really no problem.

Stayed for a week this winter. It was easy enough to find and the instructions from the airport on the website were very helpful.

Stayed in an 8 person dorm with 3 other friends. We found the room to be very clean, although rather cramped - but hey this is Tokyo! Bathroom and shower amenities were equally top notch and there's a lovely rooftop patio that I imagine is nice to hang out on with some beers during the summer.

The staff spoke very good English and were realy helpful with regards to getting around Tokyo and what things to see. There is a nice common room to meet other travellers with a kitchen although I didn't use it as the 7-11 is just around the corner with lots of yummies!

Only criticisms would be that it is in the Asakusa area and hence, is a bit out of the way from the more 'happening' areas of Tokyo such as Shinjuku or Shibuya. They are about a 30min subway ride away and the Asakusa area itself is pretty bland apart from the Senso-ji temple.

Overall a good experience, just a bit too far from the city centre for my liking though.

I stayed to the K's House twice on my recent trip to Japan. I was staying in a twin room with a friend (bunk bed). The first time we got a big room with a sofa bed, but we did not get it the second time. The bathroom are very clean and the common area as well. The kitchen is a bit small but it is very nice to hang out in the living room area. There is two computer which cost 100yen pers half an hour. There is subway station right next to it and a 7eleven open 24 hours which is pretty cool. the staff is really nice and will do everything to help on finding things to do, how to go , or good restaurants. Pretty easy to get there from the airport

Stayed for a week in the summer. It was clean and comfortable, the rooms were great. It was close to transport and lots of interesting things, though it's a little far from nightlife. It was very communal and friendly, so it was great as a solo traveler! The staff were really friendly and spoke great English, and were extremely helpful- they even took me to the doctor when I was injured to translate! If I ever go back to Tokyo, I will definitely stay there again, and I've recommended it to friends :)
