Its been my best stay in Tokyo where I can meet a lot of people from other country which also staying together. I booking for a 4 bed mixed dorm where mostly also coming alone for solo trip. Although the place is kinda small, but everything is excellent with good facility, kitchen equipment and etcs. Well, budget stay after all where most traveler who staying for holiday used the hotel or hostel for bath, sleep and putting their luggage. There is a big locker for each people. Excellent!!!!!

A very basic hostel. A little old and run down. But it's clean,secure with hot showers. For the price you pay, you can't complain! Great location too!

Nice staff (let me borrow their tourist guide for a day) and gave me tipps where to go. Dorm is pretty small, but good value for price. Would definitely recommend this place.

The staff were so knowledge and welcoming making the hostel experience great. Having stayed in the Kyoto branch of hostel I felt this one was slightly less clean and small but still a good experience and base to explore Tokyo.

We had a really nice time at the hostel. The hostel has a cozy living room, offers free coffee and tea, and has comfortable beds. The hostel is in easy access to the Tokyo subway and metro, and also has nice places to walk around nearby. Only downside is a shared shower, but it was not a big problem.

This was my second time visiting, and it was as great a stay as the first visit. The hostel is small but clean and the staff are super helpful with great english. The location is perfect, main reason for coming back. You're a minute from Asakusa station and the Ginza line.

We expected the place to be much cleaner, as I have been to several khaosan branches which were great. However the showers had a slight sewerage smell that made showering quite uncomfortable. The space was definitely too small for anyone tall or large. The whole area was quite small. However staff and location were great. I guess you win some you lose some! However, it was definitely value for money though. Very cheap, great service, great location. But don't expect any more

The toilet especially on the second floor was so tiny, i couldn't even pull down my underwear to just tinkle hahaha

The private-couple rooms are very significantly exceptionally terribly small. If you had number of tours carrying two baggage of average, once you keep them in the room you will find enough space even to walk or change dress. The common room is sometimes crowded, not comfortable if you want privacy. The staffs are great and helpful, very friendly, that's what makes the difference from the above problems mentioned. In overall I will rate it 8/10, due to its great location as it is near Station.

I had a good stay at the hostel and it is great especially in terms of the location. Close to both Toei and Tokyo Metro Subway Asakusa station, it only takes me about 2 minutes to walk to either of them. Rooms and bathrooms are pretty small but clean and well-facilitated. Overall it is a very good value for money and I would consider staying here if I ever visit Tokyo again!
