Already went here in 2013 with a friend. Now, coming back with brothers and cousins, I still love the hostel. It is still small, compact like 3 years ago but so is the great location. With Keikyu Line + 3 days Tokyo Metro and Toei Line, I can access easily from Haneda and connected to all the places in Tokyo.... More

The Hostel is without any doubt in a good location. But it is very small and there is practically no room for the bags. Mini sinks in the hallway. Staff friendly. No breakfast included, no safe in the room.

We were travelling in Japan and now at our final destination, Tokyo. The hostel is in a good and easy to find location. Can be accessed by subway and a short walk. It is in the lovely Asakusa area. Quiet location in a small side road. Stayed there as a couple in the shared 4 bed room. The first night... More

I spent the first night of my trip in their private room and returned a few weeks later and stayed in their shared room. Private room: Very small and cramped. It had a single bunk bed which took up majority of the room. Barely any walking space or room to put your luggage, however there is a bag room downstairs... More

Khaosan Tokyo Original is wonderful place to stay for your vacation. Perfect location, just small walk from Asakusa station and only 5 minutes walk to Sensoji Temple. Nice view, the Sumida river is in front of your window if you lucky enough to got the corner private room of 4 people. The roof-top is fantastic. Staffs are very nice and... More

We rented a room with a bunk bed. It was so small. We could barely open our luggage. The shower area is tiny and we had no where to hang our stuff. There was a bag hanging by the door I thought I could use for my stuff but I wasn't sure about how clean it was. The duvet had... More

Stayed here with a friend in a 4 bed dorm. Walked in to the hostel early in the morning after my flight arrived and was immediately struck by how small the ‘lobby’ area is, although it is not a lobby you walk straight in to the kitchen area which is tiny and then a small room which acts as the...

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.
