Loved!!! On top of excellent everything, something that really impressed me was the staff's friendliness. I had two, long conversations with staff members during the course of the two days. I think that those conversations are one of the highlights of my entire trip to Tokyo! Their willingness to spend time talking with me about Japanese life made me feel welcome and comfortable, more like a friend than a guest or a tourist. Thank you, K's House!

One of my favourite hostels in my 6-month Asia trip. There is a big living room and kitchen where you enter the building. This is great, because everyone passes by and people hang around. The social vibe is excellent. Also very clean and good location. Perhaps slightly small rooms, but would definitely recommend.

The staff are lovely and the plum wine at night is a great touch!! My head sure was hurting the next day though. Extremely close to transport, 7/11 and places to eat. I'm stay here again!!

It was a pretty amazing stay, I've been to some pretty nasty hostels and this one was really clean and in a very good location.

I stayed here 4 years ago and my opinion hasn't changed since then. K's house is always amazing! The staff are very friendly with excellent english, the place is very clean and organized. Its really more of a hotel than it is a hostel! Will always come back here when I visit Tokyo!.

I stayed here for the last couple days of my trip and it was awesome! The free drink night was the best way to meet other people that might be interested in going to certain places with you! They also clean the bathrooms and rooms everyday! The staff are extremely friendly and genuinely curious to know more about their guests! I highly recommend you to spend more than 1-2 nights here because it really is a nice hostel with great guests and staff members!

Awesome staff!! Everyone was so friendly. The location is great, very close to the subway. The accommodations are really tight and you have limited space to lock your valuables, but overall a great experience!

A great hostel for solo travellers to meet others (which is less common in Japan)- I had a lot of fun! The common room always has people around and is a really nice space. The rooms are good, but could do with one less bed in some as they can be a little cramped with lots of luggage. Location is great - 10 min walk to the gate a Asakusa, and a great hostel bar Nui 1 min away (get the pizza). The staff are lovely and very helpful if you need some info. Overall, a great hostel.

Thank you very much for the specific review! It will help other travelers who plan to visit to Tokyo :) Yes, one of the best things during a trip is meeting new people, and our common area is perfect to do it! Please come back to see more Japan sometime in the future.

It can be hard to find a good hostel in Japan that has a good backpacker atmosphere, and this fits the bill. It has a really nice living room area (with fully kitted out kitchen) - a great place to meet other travelers, and maybe get some sake from the 7/11 across the way! Great location - a 10/15 walk to the gate, which has loads of places to eat. The Nui hostel is also just a 2 minute walk, and has a great bar (have the cheese pizza)..

I have fallen in love with the K's house facilities in Tokyo and Kyoto and hope to stay at every K's house when I travel to Japan. K's house Tokyo was great.

Very quiet hostel. Not much socializing, partly due to a small common room, a lack of organized activities, and the common use of hostels by japanese nationals as budget accommodation. This last point is most definitely not the fault of k house, however it's good rating probably promotes it a bit. I've stayed here twice, and both times the hostel was half full of japanese families and even business people who aren't really into the 'hostel-vibe'. Facilities were well looked after though!

Thank you very much for your review. It was a shame you were not able to join our weekly event, Free Drink Night on Wednesday. We offer Japanese Sake, Plum wine, and soft drinks for free, and people exchange their stories of trip in the common area. Please come back to see more Japan sometime in the future!

The hostel was excellent overall I had a smelly room but it was the luck of the draw with who was in the room. I was there at a busy time during golden week so it couldn't be helped. Met many cool people and went out to tight clubs with the locals who frequency stays here and DJs. Near a station and a 7-11 like next door.
