The place was hard to find. Staff were ill mannered, walls were thin, kitchen is tiny and other guests were rude and inconsiderate.
Tucked in a quiet alley in Asakusa, you will find this Japanese theme hostel. Conveniently located, you can find your way easily to the subway as well as shops and restaurants. The rooms and common area has tatami mats and Japanese decor which really give it a sense of ryokan. The staff kept the place clean and tidy. Internet connection is also very good. Highly recommended.
I had 2 nights. One was good, another was really bad. I arrived in the early morning. I checked in but it was too early so can't leave my luggage in my room. The staff said he'd bring my luggage to my room. When I got back at night, no. So I had nothing whole night. Worse, no hot water after 2 or 3 am. Worst, when I told my case to the owner next morning and asked 4 more time to tidy up b4 check out, he agreed my case but angrily demanded me to finish shower in 10 mins. That says it all
It has a japanese style, what is great. It close to the temple and a touristic area. It is also only blocks from the subway from where you can go anywhere in minutes. Very clean bathroom, secure and friendly.
Lovely, friendly staff. Everything in Tokyo is expensive, but this was a great place to stay on a budget. The fellow travelers we met here were fun and friendly as well. Would happily return.
Very nice and valuable (compared to Tokyo's prices) hostel for budget travelers. At the heart of the Asakusa area, you can explore this very traditional Japanese area easily. Subway station is 5 minutes walking from the hostel (quite convenient). Dorms are okay. Bathrooms are big and clean. You can make your own food, wash your clothes (pretty nice if you've been traveling for a while). There is also a cute terrace on the roof. The atmosphere was a bit quiet though..
This hostel was one of our favorite during our Tokyo trip. Most welcoming and friendly English-speaking staff I have encountered in Japan so far. Premises were clean, cosy and covered with travelling tips and sightseeing guides. Private dorm room wasn't pre-heated so it was quite chilly before getting in the bed. After all, I would recommend this to everyone visiting Tokyo. Real value for money and the staff makes you smile after leaving.
Awesome location. Best place to site seeing Asakusa and Tokyo Tower. Walking distance to the train and lots of 24/7 food locations nearby.
Poorly maintained. I stayed at this hostel 6 years ago and had a great experience. So when it came to my recent trip, they immediately came to mind. I really think they haven't taken care of the facilities, besides cleaning the bathroom, since that time. Lots of things are broken (including the floor). What wasn't broken looked extremely worn. Will not consider this facility for future trips to Tokyo.
Clean rooms and bathroom/shower. It would be nice if you could lock your bag up in the room, but they just had shelves for your bag. Also, please fix the direction instructions, the hostel is 3 blocks off the main road, not two. We unknowingly walking into a lover hotel because we followed the directions. Had a small common room/tv room which was nice.
Nice and clean Hostel.. Friendly Staff. Location is good too, near a Subway station and within walking distance of some nice attractions! Would come here again!
Keep up the way you're doing. It's absolutely perfect and a great pleasure staying in your establishment.
We would encourage you to accept (without charges) payment by card, which is a confortable payment method for travellers.
It is a nice hostel in a quiet neighborhood. The direction is easy and not hard to find. The common area is large and beautiful. The dorm room is nice and spacious and the bed comfortable. Tatami mat nice touch. The staffs are very nice and helpful. I had a very good rest staying here. I would stay here again
Enjoyed. My time here at this hostel, it is a huge building much the same size as a smaller hotel. I will prob come back here for a few days once I've finished the rest of Japan.
