I'm not quite sure about my booked on Tokyo Original Hostel. The reviews doesn't that good so I put my expectation low. What I see is what I get: small living room, a little bit smelly bathroom, and perfect location for its near location with Asakusa Station. Ah, and lovely view to Tokyo Sky Tree from your window view. What I love from this hostel is the warm and homey feeling. Meet and talk a lot of new person on that small living room. And Chieko San gave me Tottoto origami when I check out.

The showers were not clean and every time someone wanted to come into the hostel, the bell was so loud. The Khaosan world was much better than the Khaosan original. The "wa-shitsu" before the luggage room is also very uncomfortable. Next time I will book the Khaosan world again.

The kitchen is small but yet very well equipped. There is a comfortable and warm living room that looks like a typical traditional student dormitory living room. The beds are soft and comfortable and there is a place to hang your laundry on the top floor. Also the price is cheap and the staffs are friendly.

The staff was really good, they made us feel at home. They taught us how to use the rice-cooker, gave us good advice, and even organized a "let's make udon noodles" workshop, which was great. Thank you Kahosan Original :)

Great value for money and a minute away from the subway and main Asakusa street. Perfect if you just want a nice and cheap place to stay with good access to the rest of Tokyo. Had some issues with hot water in the showers, but nothing serious.

I dunno what caused my legs to be itchy on my first night. I dunno if there were some insects on the duvet or what they spray on it, which I saw on my 2nd day when some lady was cleaning.

The person (when we checked in was very helpful) even though we arrived early. We had booked a whole room (4 people) for the three of us, When we could check in, the room was aired out and cool (much appreciated), and we really liked the river view we had off the balcony! :) Also, we appreciated all the helpful things at the hostel (sheets with common phrases, bus schedules, maps, etc.). I wished we had time to stay there longer! :)

It's extremely small, smaller than other hostels we have stayed in. In general it's fine, they provide drinks (tea/coffee), there is a small common room with internet, Internet in rooms works.

Amazing people working in a very nice hostel. I had lot of fun staying in Khaosan. I have stayed there 3 times and felt like at home. Location is brilliant, very easy to find as well. I met a lot of cool people while I stayed in Khaosan. Also staff gives leaving gifts what I think is a very nice touch to a whole guest experience at this hostel. The staff is very helpful and will give all the information you need. I already miss this hostel.
