“Great hostel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

Great place to stay and meet people. Dorms are clean as are the bathrooms and showers. All very modern. Staff really friendly and willing to help with any information you need. Free sake evening, which for us led on to very drunken singing session with new friends at a nearby karaoke club and massive hangover the next day.

I stayed here for three nights when I first got to Japan and the staff are amazing. The dorms are great and the whole place has a fab vibe. There is a 7-11 across the road so there is cheap food and the kitchen is well equipped. It is not central but with great transport links it doesn't matter. Will stay here again!

A great hostel, u can easily communicate hang out and have fun, while the hostel always shows the interesting Japanese TV programs on screen. In terms of security the baggage was very well Handeled, the toilets and shower were outstanding for hostel, its really hard to find a shower enclosed in a room. the staff was friendly and cheerful, they could speak English almost perfectly... overall this is one amazing hostel, if u want to enjoy your stay in tokyo then u should book ahead!

We stayed here(4 girls, 2 guys) in November 2010 for our trip to Japan. It was a bit of a trek from the airport but I believe they may have a bus route running to the Asakusa area now. I remember seeing fliers posted up about a bus service starting in December 2010. The staff speaks English and they are all very helpful about maps and sites in the Tokyo area. LOVE LOVE the Ramen shop nearby, you literally go out the door and turn left and look for the red banner. It was super clean and I would definitely stay here again if coming to Tokyo. I wish I had the chance to check out other of the K's House properties throughout Japan. I highly recommend.

Don't get me wrong, it's a great place to stay - but after staying at K's house in Hiroshima, Kyoto, and Mt. Fuji - this place is not near as charming. It's certainly adequate though.

The internet claims it's 100Y for 30 minutes, but it shuts off after 20 minutes.

Clean, friendly and close to a great tourist area. Lots of transport options nearby as well. Ask about the nearby okonomiaki restaurant - Sometaro.

K's House is a wonderful hostel with a great friendly atmosphere, a downstairs common area with kitchenette, television lounge, and internet. The rooms are small but were extremely clean, and also include TVs. There are common bathrooms -- also very clean -- and there are plenty of them so don't worry about waiting for showers or toilets in the morning. Free wireless internet. Great location -- Asakusa is a great stop to be on for exploring Tokyo, and Senso-ji Temple is right down the road.

You might want to bring your own towels, although you can also rent theirs. Sheets are included with your room.

We were especially impressed by the kindness of the staff when our travel plans were disrupted by the earthquake in March 2011 -- they waived their cancellation policy and did everything they could to help and advise us. We would definitely stay here again.
