It was great!Stuff were super helpuful, it was clean and very nice atmosphere!Good location, 100y store in 2 minutes, so the subwayand public bath (if you wanna take a sauna). Perfect value for money, it's one of the cheapest hostel in Tokyo and I think it's just perfect, I don't unerstand how people can write bad comments about it..also the stuff at the reception was super nice!Thanks for everything!


The staff was not very friendly and the beds were very creaky and like sleeping on hard ground. The kitchen was ok for cooking at least. It had plenty of pots, pans and dishes. There was only one shower and there wasn't any toilet paper in the bathrooms.


It was not a nice experience staying here. Admittedly it also had to do with People eating in the room and left Food open on the floor all day long. But when I reported to the staff that I had seen 2 cockroaches (1 right next to my bed at night) and that this might be due to people in my room eating, all I got as a Response was: yeah, your room is on 4th floor with kitchen, that happens sometimes. No lockers in rooms. Room could do with a makeover. Only Thing I liked were the showers.


Nice atmosphere and very internationnal


Got scared by the bad reviews and then it turned out to be really nice! Clean, comfy, nice people...


Perfect location, easy to find and to reach any interesting part of Tokio. Closing and opening front (external) door in "Bekkan" house should be revised. I've seen several times, that front door was left open, even wide open. Electric kettle did not work, there was very limited set of spoons and so on.


The dorms were really small for 6 people.


Nice hostel with good facilities like a kitchen and laundry. However I saw a couple of cockroaches in the kitchen and there needed to be more utensils to really cook. Rooms were pretty small but that's expected in tokyo. Nice bar and common room area downstairs.


Nice place to stay, a little bit of noisy down stair on Saturday but it's okey.


There were so many things that should have been fixed. Locks/toilets etc.. windows not closing..


Good service and good helpfull staff! We had a good stay at Asakusa Smile! Only thing, sometimes a bit cold in the lounge. But it was also cold outside....


unfriendly staff inconvenience if your room at second building (Bekkan). Hard to find the 2nd building. The hostel signboard is no where to find. All guests I've met having the same problem to find the hostel and only found the entrance from the other guests who's going out.


Quite a bizzare set-up. Very few showers and toilets and having the shower separated from the public hallway by a thin hanging sheet was unsettling. Cheap night in the dormitory tho so you get what you pay for. The bedding was clean and the location was excellent
