“Great value accomodation, right in the heart of Asakusa”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

I stayed here for 4 nights after deciding to stay on in Tokyo following a business trip (i couldn't afford to stay in the expensive hotel in Ginza if I was paying!), and thought that the hostel offered great services and facilities for an extremely reasonable price - it was by far the cheapest of any hostel around. Rooms and communal areas were very clean and staff were excellent at helping to answer any questions regarding the local area or tourist attractions. The hostel is really well located - close to commerical areas and the metro station - and is a great place to meet friends if you are travelling solo. Would definitely stay here again.

Sakura Hostel Asakusa is located in a convenient location in Asakusa. It is surrounded by fun attractions and is near local Tokyo metro shops, yet is far enough from the busiest streets to remain quiet. Helpful staff assist with check in, check out, and bag storage at any time of the day or night. Our group of five got placed together in one of the six-person shared rooms with bunk beds and small lockers. The bathrooms are bright and clean. The lounge area offers decent breakfast for a nominal fee, but the real attractions in the common area are the free WiFi, available computers, comfortable furniture, and relaxed atmosphere. While certainly not cheap (since nothing in Japan is!), any room in this hostel is more than a good bargain for the cost-conscious traveler.

This place is nice, cossy and friendly. Free Wifi, and internet services at the lobby.
Rooms are neat and tidy and toilets are very clean.
One of the best hostels I have ever been to.
Location wise is great too, walking distance to metros, and lotsa things to see all around the hostel.
They also provide apartment for montly rental!
Tip, bring your own padlock for the locker.

Room Tip: Can choose mixed dorm or male female dorm.

After travelling around Japan for 6 months, we stayed here for 2 days to do a bit of sight-seeing. It was a bit pricey for what you get, but still the cheapest around.
Nice and handy location- good bars nearby (samurai Bar is a good one)

The common room seems to be always full of foreigners.

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights. It was very comfy, with good facilities and it's located just near the beautiful Senso-ji Temple. Definitely reccommend this hostel.

Stayed there Sept 2011. It was really clean, good atmosphere. They have a dvd player and video games, free internet. All around the hostel you can find good places to eat for not much. I stayed in a dorm, but they also have nice private rooms, I made a friend who showed me their room. The placement is really good and it allows eazsy access to all of the Asakusa neighborhood.
