The location is a tiny bit further than the other khaosan hostels to the nearest train station, but overall in comparison to the Khaosan Original this one is much better! Would recommend.

A quiet but clean and efficient hostel. It is not a great location for nightlife and you will need to take the subway to most sights but for an expensive city it was good value

Khaosan Tokyo Samurai is a good hostel, best location, very near to subway station and many sightseeing place in Tokyo. The staffs are really helpful for the information. Nice kitchen available for your dairy cooking. But the room is too small, even for private room

The twin we were in had very dirty walls and smelled musty. Mold perhaps? They admittedly clean the sheets and toilet etc but attention to detail is incredibly bad. We would have stayed elsewhere if anything had been available on short notice.

I've stayed at this hostel before and it's been fantastic both times. I'm moving to Tokyo later this year, but if that weren't the case, this would continue to be my go-to hostel every time I visit. Walking distance to Kaminarimon and Skytree, as well as Asakusa Station. Friendly staff, clean rooms and beds, lots of information available, nice common area, and very affordable. Still one of my favorite hostels in Asia.

I stayed here for 10 nights and was very comfortable. Hostel is only 20 minute walk from main train line at Ueno. You can take the underground (5min walk) to main lines (less than 5mins). Staff very friendly and extremely helpful. Very good value for money in Tokyo. Umbrellas provided free of charge if you are unlucky enough to catch a shower. Lockers provided in your room (free of charge) for your personal possessions. Only negative I had was lack of privacy curtain around bunk bed.

You can't smoke on the kitchen terrace. That's a little annoying. The bathrooms and showers are all over the place.

Twin room was spacious and clean. Highlight is the great common area with kitchen, terrace and rooftop. The staff is very helpful and they have lots of maps/tips/etc. on everything you need. - Far from main spots for shopping and partying like shibuya.

Quiet and serene location in Asakusa, a mere five minute walk from the Ginza line.
