This hostel must be super new. The place is all wood, so it gives a sauna like experience. Pretty big and private place in the dorm rooms, which is super nice after a day walking from temple to temple. The location is perfect, saw tons of Geisha on my first day. Very clean and the staff is helpful.


I think I have no comment for this accommodation especially. Thus, it was not so bad and the traditional atmosphere smell. Also, the price was reasonable.


The best hostel I stayed at in Tokyo. Super clean, nice staff, cool rooftop terrace and you get lots of information material when you check in. There is also a cheap proper supermarket within 3 mins walking distance. Would definately stay there again.


Staff is very kind! Room is clean. Air conditioner is very good. Location is good and far from subway station a little bit. (About 5~15 mins by foot)


Excellent hostel. Location on the Dotonbori River is very convenient near all the eateries and shops. Our favourite memory was our new found friend, employee of this hostel - Kazaki. He made our stay memorable!


Lovely and affordable place, i would come back to enjoy more of Japan


This hostel was amazing! They had a wonderful social area with tatami floors and good, clean bathrooms. Met a lot of nice people and the location wasn't bad. Would definitely come back to this hostel again.

Nice, clean and chip hostel. It is in a good location to see Asakusa and Ueno and it is near at the metro station.

Dear Daniel Corbelli, Thank you very much for your stay. We appreciate your kind comment. If you have next chance to visit Tokyo, we will always be happy to welcome you. Thank you. Toukaisou


I passed only one night in Toukaisou Ryokan, but it was really plaisant. Staff is so nice and helpefull, bathroom, dormitory and kitchen are really clean. The common room is really pleasant. The area is calm, faraway from the crowd,close to Senso-ji shrine.

Dear Floriane Ben Hassen, Thank you for your stay. We appreciate your kind comment. We are glad to know you found our features which we will always try to keep offering the other guests too. Your next stay will be most welcome.


There were some guests staying the same time as us who were up very late making a lot noise and because our door was right beside the social area we could basically hear every word they said. Policy dictated that group area was to be vacated after 11pm however they were in it til after 1am most nights. Aside from that I would recommend this hostel.

Dear Paul Brennan, Thank you very much for your stay of 3 nights. We appreciate your kind and precious comment. We are sorry to know that the sound of common area disturbed you and will continuously try not to cause the same problem again. Thank you for your comment, and we are looking forward to welcoming you again!


Least polite staff I have ever encountered - not the cleaners, who do an ok job, the front desk staff. Were unhelpful when asked a few simple questions about the area, & only grudgingly gave the wifi code before check-in to allow me to check the 'net. Hostel is VERY small, common area has no seating, you sit on the uncomfortable floor. The "kitchen" (a microwave & a kettle) is 1 sq metre. Poor atmosphere, long-term otaku types & older guests/families. Luggage not securely stowed, left in hallway

Dear guest, Thank you so much for your stay. We are sorry for making you unconfortable at our place. We will do our best to improve our services. Especially regarding a staff. How ever please understand our culture about tatami. We sit on tatami,it is cultural thing. We understand it is unacceptable for you. Thank you very much for your precious review. Best Regards, Toukaisou


It's a pleasure to stay at Asakusa Hostel Toukaisou. It might be a little hard to find if you are not prepared but if you are, it's super easy. It's located in a small alley but very near to everything you need ( Subway and convenient stores ). The staffs were friendly and very helpful. We were satisfied with our room and the toilets were very clean. However, other guests were quite noisy in the living room which made it hard for us to rest. Overall, it was a nice experience.
