For cleanliness, this was the by far the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The staff were very friendly and willing to help. In terms of location, it wasn't too bad because we never had to travel for longer than 25 minutes on the metro to reach all the main destinations and attractions. I thoroughly recommend not only visiting Tokyo but staying in this hostel. You can't complain when theres free breakfast, can you?

The staff at Anne is very nice and welcoming. The location is really convenient if you have a JR pass with a station close by. The neighborhood is somewhat quiet but there are lots of restaurants and bars within walking distance. The people who stayed there at the same time as me were also very social. Overall a great hostel to stay at.
A good location, breakfast included, nice staff.
The free breakfast was great as it brought everyone together in the mornings, which was a blessing as a solo traveller! Staff were great, really helpful. For the price it was great, thanks guys!
Not too difficult to find. The place is clean and breakfast consists of a heap of toast, jam, eggs, coffee and tea. The staff were friendly enough and the place holds a fairly nice atmosphere. Would definitely stay again.
Good hostel, staff friendly and welcoming just had no atmosphere for the days i was their but easy to get ariund tokyo from here
I came from a different hostel in Tokyo, to this one and everything seemed great. Nice, friendly staff, clean, breakfast included (which is always a bonus!). There's not much to see around Asakusabashi itself (for me anyway), but has good links to the metro and JR lines. My dorm was noisy and I found it hard to sleep, I was in a 10 bed female dorm - but that's through no fault of the hostel, it was just the girls staying in there weren't very considerate. Overall, good.
The location was good and the facilities were decent. Most of the staff were friendly, however, a couple were not all that friendly or accommodating. You also have to leave your bag in the hallway (unmonitored) if you check in early/want to leave your bag on the day of checkout. This was not a huge concern because it's Japan, but anyone could easily steal your bad without anyone knowing until you showed up later to get it.

Very pleasant hostel, quiet location but convenient to go visiting around, helpful staff. Beds in dormitory are equipped with opaque curtains so it's somewhat private. Only downside: lockers are very narrow.
Great hostel within walking distance from Asakusa Line! Stayed in the 10 bed dorm but there was sufficient space (:
You really need to enforce quiet time. If guests arrive past 23:00 you to tell them to quiet.
THERE IS AN ELEVATOR!!!!! THERE IS BATHTUB!!!!!
The free toast and boiled eggs for breakfast is a huge plus but they only put out one 2 slice toaster so there's usually a bit of a wait. Check in is at 4pm so getting there at noon kinda sucked. Mixed dorm was pretty small, only a small walkway between the beds. Showers are real small too. Staff is great, pretty much the same people as the other Anne hostel in Ryogoku. Anne hostel is pretty consistent between both properties.
Very clean, comfy beds with curtains for privacy, never ran out of hot water or had to wait for a shower. Staff was fine, but not super accommodating; they seemed about as flexible as the automated phone recievers you get when you call most companies now. Free breakfast was amazing; simple, but I never needed anything more than the hard boiled eggs, bread, and spreads. They lock up the common/dining room at midnight, which isn't great. Close to the subway and JR lines, easy to get anywhere.
I loved my stay in the hostel. I met a lot of people and had a great time there. The rooms are good and the hostel is less than 5 minutes from metro station, JR station and 7/11 shop.
The hostel has free breakfast, it' s close to a JR Station, and the rooms are not as cramped as in other japanese hostels. But the atmosphere was less than cero, and the staff did nothing to improve it. they charged for everything (even for the laundry detergent)...30 yen! And the drier didn`'t work properly, so you had to used it twice and pay 600 yen.
The dryer doesn't work, it just makes your wet clothes hot. They make you pay 300 yens for the washing machine, 300 yens for the dryer and 30 yens for the powder. No security, you leave your luggage in the stairway before check-in & after check-out, and the reception is on the 4th floor so anybody can go in and take your stuff. They have cameras but that would only allow you to see who stole it. Good location, but no atmosphere. Choose K's House instead! It's much better even if a bit further.
Good hostel, polite staff, very flexible what with the luggage accomodation and facilities in general.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay here. Decent location, maybe 5 mins walk from metro stop though not much to do in the neighborhood where the hostel is. Free toast & hard boiled eggs for brekkie was a good bonus and tea was available all day. Beds were a bit thin but curtains were nice and wifi was good. Would definitely stay again.
Its a very dusty place (i had to wipe my bedroom wit wet tissue to remove the dust) poor lighting inside the room no detergent available for free (at other hostel they provide it free) entrance should be lock all the time because position of receptionist is in 4th floor not at first floor
