Well located for Asakusa but I would definitely stay in Shinjuku instead. Fairly clean but the private rooms were incredibly small. Not even enough room for your bags. Khaosan hostels are great but this one lacked any vibe.

I've stayed here twice, absolutely the best hostel in Tokyo as regards price and location. As they say it's basic but for the price it's perfect - close to metro station, direct train to airport, walking distance to Asakusa Sensoji shrine and Sky tree. Rooms aren't big but have privacy curtains, personal lights, and comfy, sturdy beds.

Great location, only about 3 minutes' walk from Asakusa station. The hostel is a bit small, but each bed is separated to provide people with enough private space. And the staff were very nice, offered detailed instructions when I said I might arrive later than check-in time. One problem was that the hostel was small, so the shower room and toilet were too close to the entrance and common area. It made it a bit embarrassing when getting ready for bed.

Decent hostel, very close to Senso-ji in Asakusa. Safe neighborhood. AC available in the summer and probably in the winter. Price is good if you are looking for a basic hostel.

I really liked staying here! Clean and close to the subway. The staff is nice-- they even have umbrellas for guests when it is raining. My only complaint is that people in the hostel were a bit loud and rude in terms of packing/unpacking late at night/early in the morning. I think hostels should have signs up discouraging that kind of noise during night time. Other than that, great hostel and great cost!

Small hostel at nice location (very close to famous Asakusa). Basically you get everything you need for nice price. "Small toilet" in 2nd floor was really small :D But it did the job. Common room was cozy and comfortable (tatami mat). Everything was really clean (typical in Japan). Toilets and shower rooms are shared (do not mind to me).

Although location itself is ok, the place was EXTREMELY hard to find - the only entrance is from a back ally, and there are no visible signs or instructions about it. Room was also problematic - a bunk bed in a room so small it was literally just a few centimeters bigger than the bed itself. Showers were fully equipped and clean though, staff was friendly and helpful and the place is stocked with maps and, sheets with useful words and other useful stuff.
