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.
Amazing hostel, we could not fault it at all. Tje staff were amazing, the facilities were excellent and the location is perfect. Highly recommend a stay here if you are ib Tokyo!
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!
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.
Staff was very friendly and helpful

Best Staff ever! Thanks a Lot for a wonderful time.
Apology that my note was unclear about my check out date, however appreciated for refunding.
A good place to stay in Tokyo and in a good location. The staff were very helpful. Many thanks!
Its a bit far from Shibuya, Shinjuku and Harajuku but its right next to a metro stop which is very good. Staff was great, everything was clean, really cool common room and plenty of suggestion post its on the wall if you're not sure what to do, also the staff will be more than happy to help you out if anything!
I had the best of times, staying there!! The staff is so nice and friendly, I totally felt at home! The common areas are great (met awesome folks everyday), the location is very good (close to subway, with 2 different metro lines + next to convenience store)... Also it's very clean and they have awesome sofas ;) One of the best hostels I've stayed in!!
great hostal. this is my second time staying at this place. great staff. nice area of the city, handy to transport
An excellent hostel, with clean modern facilities, near the subway. The elevator and roof deck are nice amenities. There were a mix of young and older guests. Recommended for older travellers who might feel out of place at a party hostel.
Really liked the hostel. Cool atmosphere and a nice place to meet new people. Big common room, and really nice that you could make your own food in the kitchen. Close to the subway, but sometimes a bit far to travel to some of the attractions. Nice neighborhood. The only negative thing to say was that there should have been bigger lockers to keep your luggage safe and that one time one of the other persons living in the room did not lock the door when he/she left so it was open when I got back.
I like the arrangement of the common room on he ground floor, with everthing conigured in a nice way, the sofa, kitchen ware, etc. The room, bathroom, toliet are ver clean. The rule of locking the front door after 10:00pm makes me feel safe. Location is good for transporting by subway and 7-11 store is just outside the house.
Got very disappointed as this hostel is not as good as I've heard. Only one out of three staff I've talked with was polite and helpful. The other two were unfriendly, or honestly, they were rude. The hostel was busy and always had people coming in and out but still, I think it lacked atmosphere, or in brief, I felt less like being home then staying in a hotel. That was the worst stay of my two-week trip in Japan.
The staff and atmosphere in this hostel were great. The staff served drinks and there was a little party in the common area the night we stayed here. The hostel's location is not exceptional, but not terrible either.
Excellent staff! Perfect location! When I arrived at 22:20, there were no slippers available, that´s bad if going to the loo. Contrary to many other hostels, the dorms here have no window curtains, nor a bed curtain, so zero privacy. The showers don´t ventilate well, I came out sweating. The living room and kitchen are great.
Friendly staff that are willing to go above and beyond to make sure you have a great stay in Tokyo. Well located. clean. a good, friendly atmosphere. K's House is a great place to stay when in Tokyo. No wonder it's so popular. Will definitely stay here again.
