There is a faint odor similar to a boys dormitory. It would be nice if there were bottles of odor eliminating spray in the room.

Thank you very much for your comments and suggestion. We consider preparing Deodorizer in the each room. We hope you will come back to see more Japan sometime in the future!

The place is a little hard to find for first-time guests. The direction guide provided on the website should be revised for clarity.

The internet access on the 2nd floor is not that good. Hence, Sometimes I had to go to the first floor for using the internet instead. Maybe people staying on the third and forth floor have the same problem I think. All except this are excellent.

I think if k's house can offer free locker in the dormitory room that will be better. And if the dormitory can separate female and male room that's more safe for the single female traveler. I have a very happy experience in here, I love k's house! I think it's my best choice in Tokyo !

Backpacker's K is definately the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed at. Staff were extremely helpful and the water pressure is amazing :). Rooms are a bit cramped but you're in toyko so that's just how it goes.

Very convenient location close to Kuramae and Asakusa to access both Narita and Haneda airports. The place is clean and the staff very nice and helpful. A place I will go back when I'll return in Tokyo for sure.

One of the best places I've ever stayed at while backpacking. The staff are amazing and extremely helpful providing excellent suggestions about local attractions. Also them place makes it easy to meet other backpackers by providing a very welcoming common area. Would highly recommend this place to any backpacker visiting Tokyo. You won't regret it.

Rooms smelled really bad

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you very much for your comment. We are very sorry about the smell in the room. We often check and ventilate the rooms if it's necessary. We hope you would understand unspecified people stay in a dormitory. Please come back to see more Japan sometime in the future!

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.
