“Great hostel in a good location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Excellent location near Kuramae Station with lots of food and convenience stores around the area.
20min walk to Akihabara.

Room was smaller compared to other places we have stayed at BUT it was clean with no stench, and bunk beds unlike the others.

Toilet was clean with automatic lights.

Staff are friendly and very approachable. They remember you personally, even asking us how was DisneySea the following day.

Pity that some other guest were not following rules, such as smoking in the toilet or talking at the at the smoking point after 10pm, but they were insignificant inconveniences.

Will definitely stay with them if I'm going back to Tokyo!

I booked the 8-person dorm, but was placed in a 5-bed dorm at no extra charge. Fine with me.

K's House is a chain of hostels, so this hostel is run very professionally compared to others I've been to.

PROS: Helpful and knowledgeable staff, clean shower rooms and washrooms, clean rooms, very functional (ie the layout is great, and everything you need is there - dishes, cooking utensils, a place to lounge, and place to get some work done, etc.)

CONS: The location isn't the greatest. It's close to the subway, but it's a bit of a hike to get to the JR line. The hostel is quite difficult to find at night. The rooms are carpeted, and after a rainy day, the feet-smell of the carpet started to come out a bit. There's nowhere to store bags/luggage in the rooms though, so the floor tends to get a bit cluttered with everyone's stuff.

Overall, great experience and I would definitely return.

We stayed for 4 nights in a 8 persons dorm. The room was very small and The 4 bunkbeds just fitted, but there was limited room left for our luggage. Because The room was small it was constainly hot And in that small room there was a sink and a toilet. The shower was in The bathroom with 2 more toilets.

The fifth night we stayed in a double room. This room was also very small. The bed was filling up The room with a desk.

K's house has a nice atmosphere and lovely people come and work here. But The nightcrew is a bit crumpy. At 22.00 you need to be quiet or you need to go out, otherwise The neighbours will complain. (The Staff didn't want that so they put on flyers staying that if it was noisy aftr 22.00 The police will come...)

Plus point about K's House:
- near The trainstation
- lovely people (other travellers and datcrew)
- near a few touristattractions

Down point:
- you need to be quiet at 22.00
- small rooms
- you can't get a rest between 11.00 and 16.00 because they clean up The rooms (if you have a privat room it's ok)
- it's 200¥ expenciver then J-Hoppers (but they are not in Tokyo but there are in some Same Towns as K's house, and they have bigger rooms for less money!)

We stayed at K's House Tokyo for three nights in a Double Room. Of the four K's we stayed in across Japan, this was our least favorite, recommend the nearby K's Tokyo Oasis instead if you have the budget (slightly more expensive). Think the other K's may have spoiled us as this branch is a little more basic. The room was smaller then we've had and didn't provide towels. The common bathrooms were ok. Laundry and outdoor clotheslines were appreciated. Kitchen had the standard free coffee and tea, but no stovetop that we were accustomed to. Staff was helpful and nice as with the other branches.

Very hospitable hostel!!!! Very clean and cool people at the desk. I was lost many times and was given detailed directions to where I needed to go. Big common area with plenty of bathrooms and showers. They gave me a free towel if I liked them on Facebook and always had coffee. Will definitely come back.

Asakusa is my fav part of Tokyo, and ks house makes it even better! We stayed here 3 years ago and again this year. The staff are amazing and friendly and so helpful. This place will always be our first choice for accommodation. So close to the ginza line, amazing food places, and right near 24hr supermarket.

I love staying at the K's brand when travelling Japan because they offer cleanliness, good service and a modern backpacker feel. This was my third time staying here and it did not let me down. Good location with friendly staff members who speak English and go out of their way to get you to experience real Japan. The rooms were spacious and comfortable with clean bathrooms - there were plenty to go around, if your floor was full or you don't have a private one, just go down or up a floor. Good prices. Free WiFi and a cool common room with games and books - easy to meet other travellers and we had some great nights out with new people because of this. Nice to use the lift too if you get too tired aftera day of sightseeing! Easy location to find with good links to the subway. You also get a discount if you stay in other K's in your trip so be aware of this and use it! There is also a rooftop terrace you can access in the warmer months. Easy to locate food in the area. I highly recommend staying at this K's, or any other location in the brand!

Room Tip: Check out the rooftop if you are able to and use the lift if you get too tired after a day of explor...
