Excellent location especially from Narita Airport. Friendly staff, compact but comportable facilities, quite good atmosphere. It was my first hostel at TOKYO, so I can't compare other hostels in TOKYO but I can do say here is GOOD ONE, woulde rank upper in Hostelworld.

Wish there was an option to have an all female dormitory. Really didn't like having to sleep with guys, especially since I was traveling alone!

This place was crowded. It was sufficient enough for everything but nothing exactly stood out. People were walking in and out of the hostel so i did not feel very secure. The location was okay. It was accessible to walking to food, groceries and public transit. The staff were friendly but not very informative about information to new visitors.The atmosphere was okay. there was not enough space for people to socialize however it was crowded and uncomfortable. They did provide sake tasting, a plus

Excellent. Hostel done right, everything works. Good place to get to know people, there were always travellers hanging out in the lounge and a good vibe. Kuramae is far from the nightlife (Roppongi, Shibuya, Ikebukuro, Shinjuku..) but then again, so are 95% of the hostels. Prepare to come home at midnight or stay up until morning. No curfew though.

Thank you very much for your detailed comments! We have a perfect lounge for relaxing after your adventure in Tokyo. And yes, you are right! Most of hostels in Tokyo are in the same area as we are. However, we are still approximately 30 minutes away by subway from Roppongi, Shibuya, Shinjuku, and etc for the nightlife! We look forward to welcoming you again!

This is my second time to visit this hostel. The location is good, it's convenient to reach from Narita airport , also it's very closed to metro station. I would recommend it.

Nice place with comfy beds but the 8-bed dorm had a bad breath smell that was always there no matter how much you ventilated the room.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you very much for your comments. We are really sorry to hear the room you stayed in didn't smell good. We often check and ventilate the rooms if it's necessary. However, we hope you would understand unspecified people stay in a dormitory room. Please come back to see more Japan sometime in the future!

A solid hostel. No major highlights but no major concerns. The hostel was really clean, but there was an odd smell to it that was not pleasant. While the location is not super great (area is not the happening part of Tokyo), it is super close (same block) to the subway and a 7-11 is practically part of the hostel-- not really, but the back entrance to one is across an alley (which you will quickly realize is amazing). You will find both travelers and local Japanese staying at this hostel.

Thank you very much for your comments. We are sorry to hear that the room didn't smell good. We always check and try to ventilate the rooms and will do harder. Yes, we are really close to 2 subway stations and 7-11! Please come back to see more Japan sometime in the future.

This hostel was decent, but nothing compared to the other khaosan locations I had stayed in, both in Tokyo and Kyoto. I think the best part was the friendliness of the staff and easy access. The facility itself was okay-the girls dorm was a mix match of wooden and metal beds and bunk beds. The ceiling was very low, I had to stoop. The shower smelled of mildew, as it has no real ventilation. It was a 5 minute walk to the main tourist site and a subway exit was right across the street, also good.

Very Good hostel overall. Stayed in the private two bed bunk on the third floor. Clean, place with a nice lounge and friendly staff. Good quite neighborhood. Kuarme subway stop very close, kind of near the Skytree, so good location (a bit far from shinjuku though).

Thank you very much for your comments and rating us 100%! We are happy to hear you liked your stay with us. Tokyo is one of the biggest cities in the world, and lots of fun places are spread all over the city. So it is quite hard to find a place to stay which is close to everything. You can directly get to Shinjuku in 25 minutes by subway from the closest station to K's House Tokyo. We look forward to welcoming you again!

If you want a proper hostel experience, you cannot beat K's house. The location isn't exactly at the center of Tokyo, but the subway system in Tokyo is very well-connected, so that isn't a problem. Stayed six nighrs, and met a lot of fantastic people there. Dorms and toilets are generally clean. They have small lockers in very floor, although I do wish they had lockers under the bed like the K's in kyoto and Hiroshima. I would definitely stay in K's Houses if I visit Japan again in the future.
