Such a wounderful hostel! Had an awesome time there. The staff are extremly helpful and very very nice. They make u feel like its home! The comman area is also great, very easy to meet ppl and great place to chill out. Recommend this hostel to anyone going to Tokyo!
My friend and I were bumped into a private room from a dorm for no reason which was very nice. The staff was extremely helpful with recommendations and taking us down by the river to light fireworks. Really enjoyed our time in Tokyo and at the hostel. There are a lot of long term guests who kind of think they own the place, but beyond that a very good place to pass a few nights.
Excellent location with some nice cheap food places nearby. The staff were very helpful. We met some nice people in the common room space but a huge improvement would be if any events were held by the hostel, like a night out at the local karaoke or a tour by a local that we would pay for, as there was therefore no easy way of getting to know people unless you stumbled across them in the fairly empty common room, and we found the atmosphere in the hostel was lacking.
Very helpful staff! Great atmosphere in hostel.
I liked this hostel, but it didn't impress me. Location could have been a lot better. It was far from the nightlife.
The hostel was excellent! I got a lot of help booking my bus ticket to the airport as well as directions around town. Definitely the nicest staff of any of the hostels I stayed at in Tokyo.
I didn't stay there. There was a problem with the booking, but everything worked out and they responded to my email really fast and they were nice. Stayed in another Khaosan hostel and it was great.
We stayed one week with my korean friend in a capsule it was just awesome! You have your own privacy! Plus yiu got the wifi so you can relax on the internet! The capsule are good but the thing is, if you neighboor move too much the noise can be annoying
this is my third time at the ninja in 3 years. i could probably end the review here, with an endorsement like that (but i won't). the staff are friendly and helpful with good english, the deluxe "capsule" bunks are comfy, spacious, private and secure (albeit a bit hot in summer, but that's tokyo), the basement common room is a social hub for travellers (and even some locals). for otaku, of the anime and/or electronics type, nearby akihabara is heaven. i can't recommend this hostel enough.
My first time ever staying in a capsule bed, and it was pretty cool. There dormitories are cozy, and it's super easy to meet people. The staff are all so friendly, and will answer just about any question you may or may not have. It's in an awesome location, and has a great atmosphere. I stayed here, Ace Inn, and Sakura Hostel & Sakura Hotel during my stay in Tokyo. I felt Khaosan Ninja and Ace Inn were the best hostels by far in Tokyo, and would easily recommend both for atmosphere and price!
This place is always one of my favorites to stay at. Close to a few different train stops. The staff are some of the best out there.
We loved staying at the Ninja. It was clean, friendly, great chill spot after long days exploring Tokyo. My only complaint is that the capsules get really stuffy and I woke up each morning with a slight headache and congestion, better air circulation would benefit those rooms.
This hostel is all right, conveniently located and the staff is helpful. It has all the services you need, but it's just not out of the ordinary. The building is a little old and it can be hard to get rid of the moisture in the rooms (most have old carpets). Otherwise, the bathrooms and showers are very clean. A restaurant or a bar would be a plus! the place is OK for the price,
Very nice stay. Two times already in that hostel. A really great one.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Location was good as I only wanted a stop over for the airport train early the next day. Bed comfy and clean.

The price was good, the atmosphere was relaxed and for a hostel, it was very clean. The staff were very lovely and more than willing to help with directions etc etc. The issue we had was that the room was incredibly small, we booked the twin room - which was a set of bunk beds. We knew it would be small but had no idea that it would be so small. Decent for the price, but be aware that it can be a tight stuffy squeeze. Shared bathroom was clean but often full of people.
Superb! Excellent staff, excellent facilities. Could not ask for more.
The hostel is very close to the train station and a 15 minute walk from Akihabara. The facilities are excellent and the staff are more than happy to help you out.
