Day shift staff Masa is the best thing abt K's: helpful and v friendly. But night shift staff is lazy, couldn't care less if ur wifi is disconnected or not. The male staff Kane something. Does a lot of smoking break during work hours and does nothing to help travelers. Hostel located on the more expensive metro line, be prepared to pay 40% more on transportation if u stay here. Clean dorms and common room. Kitchen area is good. Free coffee, tea and shower gel, shampoo.

The room and bathrooms were always very clean. The kitchen and sitting area was nice and it was a nice touch to have complimentary tea and coffee available. I stayed in a 5 bed dorm which felt a little bit cramped as there wasn't really much room for our luggage. It would also be nice to have lockers in or near to the room. Overall though, one of the best hostels I have stayed in. I also really liked the neighbourhood where the hostel is and found it very convenient for the metro.

I really enjoyed my stay at K´s House Tokyo! The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. The hostel provieds nice and clean facilities, many tipps about what to see and where to go plus there´s a very nice and comfortable atmosphere. The location is also pretty good - Skytree and Asakusa within walking distance and only a few steps away from the subway. The only downside were the pretty small dorms.

I recently stayed at Ks house and I really enjoyed myself! I had a great time hanging out with everyone! Everything was super clean and The staff was all super nice and i thought everything was pretty great! My only word to the wise is that it isn't very central to anything fun or interesting other than the big temple. (Which is totally awesome, just not everyday.)

Thank you very much for your review! We are really happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with other guests. We are actually located in central Tokyo. Tokyo is just really BIG!! There are an electric town Akihabara, Sky Tree, and lots of museums and a nice park in Ueno, and you can get to all of them by foot from K's House Tokyo. We look forward to welcoming you sometime in the future :-)

Small and friendly in Asakusa, my favorite neighbourhood for it´s popular, old time Tokyo atmosphere. Not trendy, not craxy, just friendly! Thanks to all the staff for making me feel like comming back home every time! You'll see me again!

Solo traveller, stayed 2 nights. Very nice hostel couldn't be closer to Kurmae station which made it very easy to get to from Haneda Airport. Staff were very helpful. Relaxed vibe on the common area people keeping mostly to themselves. Did make a couple of friends. Head upto the Rooftop for a good place to have a beer and a smoke

Great place to stay regular Wednesday drinking night which is free and other events which they have check them out on facebook. Laundry however isn't 24/7 so plan in advance and fridges and food storage is usually quite filled, Wifi doesn't work so well in most rooms forcing you out into the main areas which isn't so bad.

Amazing place. Loved staying here. The staff were so friendly and helpful, especially when I lost my phone! The kitchen was a little small for so many people staying there and cooking, but there was tons of fridge space. Also the window in our room was behind a bunk bed; I couldnt reach the blinds unless I got on the bottom bed (but it wasnt mine so I didnt). It was a little hard to sleep with the bright light, even using an eye mask. But this is a really small issue. Overall it was fantastic.

The staff here are so lovely! They offered tea on arrival and were so helpful to me. The location is less than 2 minutes walk from the subway too which was ideal. Comfy beds, amazing staff and great location. I was sad to leave!

Thank you very much for your comments. We hope you felt like you were at home in K's House after you walked around this big city, Tokyo. We hope to see you back in Tokyo sometime in the future :-)

Absolutely superb place to stay in Tokyo. The staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful. Facilities top notch and ultra modern. On the back of this I stayed in the Mt.Fuji, Kyoto and Hiroshima branches too, which were all amazing. Gone further South now which means no more K's houses and honestly, it makes me sad! I've been travelling around South East Asia for a good 6 months and these hostels out do even some of the hotels I've stayed in. Don't miss out, book now!!
