“A typical backpacker hostel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

This was probably one of the cheapest accommodation I could find which was near the Tokyo station. It's good that there are eating spots along the way from the Asakusabashi station to the hostel. Directions given on the hotel booking sites are clear and easy to follow.

It's a rather cramped place, rooms are small, simply furnished and very close to each other so any loud noises could be potential disturbances. Thankfully there are clear signs to keep the noise levels down esp. during sleeping hours and everyone respected that.

The showers were freezing cold in the winter so I had to turn my water up to a steamy temperature to stay alive. Same goes for the rooms - there was some issue with the heating when we were there so the sleeping was not so comfy. I appreciated the general cleanliness though.

It's a good place to meet fellow travellers. I would have liked it to be a bit..bigger.

This is my second trip to Japan, and I choose again the Anne Youth Hostel. It is in a calm area, but very near to Akihabara and with a veyr good connection (only 1 station) with the JR Yamanote Line. The staff are great and helps you in everything, and the rooms are samll but very clean, the same to the shared bathrooms amb toilets.

I was with a group of 3 friends and we found ourselves unexpectedly spending the night in Tokyo after a flight change enroute to Beijing. We found this hostel online and since it was last minute, decided to stay with them as they were the only property in our price range that had 4 beds in one room left. We took the metro from the Haneda airport right to the Asakusabashi station and walked from there. It was later at night (1am) and the area was absolutely dead quiet. No people walking and no cars. We had a little trouble finding it, but managed. When we arrived, it was locked up tight but we were able to page the office with the call button and we were shown to our room without a problem. The place is very clean and quite large. Several floors and there is an elevator if needed. Our room had 2 bunk beds and was comfy by Asian standards. The shared bathroom/shower area was suffcient. We didn't have any problems with the showers making a mess. Lots of other travellers staying here. Decent breakfast in an inviting setting. I would say a solid 20-30 minute walk to the main area of Asakusa. Overall, decent place to stay for a short visit.

This hostel is great; it's very very clean and the bunks are wooden with proper ladders to get to the top one.

The lounge room is great with an authentic Japanese feel, it's a great place to meet fellow travellers. Breakfast is included and it's an ideal way to meet people and discuss what you are planning to visit/avoid for the day.

Stayed for four consective nights. Nothing outstanding, but it was an above-average hostel overall! Staff were helpful and great. Free breakfast was great. The male shower rooms were the smallest I've ever seen. And everything is a bit crammed but that's Tokyo. It's within 5-10 mins of the JR line and subway lines for Tokyo so it's a great location for getting around. Very quiet area at night though. Quiet times are at the hostel start at midnight, so partyers might prefer somewhere else more.

We stayed there for 3 nights in a 8-bed mixed dorm and we were all (6 people) very happy about the experience !

First, the guesthouse is very easy to find once you exit Asakusabashi Subway Station (Exit 6) and it is not too far from the Narita Airport. (1h20 by subway)
Then, the hosts are very welcoming and they help you organize sightseeing trips or activities.

The dorm was really clean and so were the showers. And the blankets are soooo soft and warm ! Breakfast is basic but good : toasts, eggs, coffee, tea... It is served in a nice room until 10 am.

I would highly recommend this place to those who want a nice and cheap guesthouse in Tokyo!
