This was a great place. I liked old town location and it was very near the subway and inexpensive, interesting food. The desk person was great - I was looking for an english guide book and he found a bookstore with them and wrote down explicit travel instructions for me which was a huge help! It is quiet at night but a little light on facilities and atmosphere - there wasn't much common or kitchen space. It was cold so I didn't use the rooftop area. But I was not in Tokyo to hang at the hotel!

Quite close to major metro/JR station (5-15mins walk) , staff is helpful , the room is a bit small but still sufficient to have the luggage open, good value for money

Dear Sze Ho Cheung, Thank you very much for your stay. We appreciate your kind comment! It wil be pleasure for us to have you stay in our place in the future too! Thank you very much.


This place is more of a small hotel than a hostel. No common areas to hang out, and small rooms. We were only staying there between 2 trains so it was fine and clean enough, but I wouldn't recommend it for a longer stay.


Friendly staff, thanks very much!

Dear Daniel, Thank you very much for your stay. We appreciate your friendly review.


Love the little private room a lot. A good "home-Feeling" hostel It would be better if there is a little fridge in every room Also If there is better sign for the direction to the hotel it will be great!


I Will recommand it anytime

Thank you for your review. We hope to see you again near future. Toukaisou.


Convenient location close to subway and the shrine and markets in Asakusa. Friendly and helpful staff. The room was tiny with bathroom and toilet separate from each other. The bathroom was more like a shower room and was not in the best condition as it made the whole room feel damp and and it also made it smell a bit weird. But all in all a nice place to stay if you're looking for a cheap and convenient accommodation in Tokyo!

This ryokan is located very near Tawaramachi station on the Tokyo Metro Ginza Line which is just one stop away from Asakusa. You can also walk to Asakusa easily via the Shin-Nakamise street. Lots of eateries located around this ryokan so it is very convenient. There is also a 24-hour store selling food at the basement of Rox Dept store opp the ryokan. As a solo traveller, it is not easy to find an affordable single room with attached bathroom. At 4,500 yen a night, this is quite a good deal.


Can you say cramped? Barely even had room enough to walk along the side of the bed.


The staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms nice and clean. My daughter and I loved the tatami mats and mattresses which were very comfortable and convenient. Good position and not far from the metro. We would definitely stay there again.
