The roommates of our dorm were very noisy in the morning (6 am). It took them about three hours for them to just get ready and above all they left the room very messy. Ofcourse this was not the hostel's fault, they were in fact very friendly and helpful. Very good accommodations with showers in our dorm and public one's on every floor and very nice lounge areas. Also very close to senso ji.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Khaosan World Asakusa. Although the beds look tiny, it was comfortable and cozy once you get in. I was really impressed by the fact that we had showers and toilets in the rooms as well as on the floor - and they were always very clean. Usually shower time is not a happy time in hostels, but this was definitely not the case at Khaosan World. I also really enjoyed the jazz performance on Thursday! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

The infrastructure in the Hostel is very good. The attention in general from the staff was good, they were willing to help whenever we have any doubt.We stay at first in a double bedroom, I would say that the beds are small for two people. Also there is a shame that they over charge you when you want to pay with Credit Cards, specially in a Country were the ATM don´t accept international debit cards of any type.

Great space for a Tokyo Hostel. Loved the green-lit bedroom units were very impressive. Excellent bathroom as well. Only negative were the lift doors...they really did try to crush us every time we went through them.

Great facilities and everything kept very clean. Bunks were comfy and there is a toilet/shower and lockers in the 8 bed dorm room. Bar was excellent as well as the kitchen! Only stayed one night, but would highly recommend this from what I experienced :)

Inconvenient location with only metro a 10-min walk away, but Asakusa is a pretty old residential area that can be fun to stroll around in. Massive 24-h Don Quijote close by. Staff friendly and helpful. Chilled vibe in the lounge with excellent cooking fascilities.

The clean the bathroom about 3 times a day and the room once, The room is very new and clean. AIf condition works well and the people are amazing, Just 4 minutes walk to Mrt and get from there to Gina and shibuya directly . And the stuff is the best, especially momo, really lovly , will miss them .

Great friendly staff and even the 10 bed rooms on the 4th floor were great as they had their own shower, sink and toilet and the beds provided a bit of privacy. The second stay at the 6th floor ten was much more basic with facilities only outside the room and open beds. Generally one of the best hostels I have stayed at. Keep up the great work.

Great stay at Khaosan World. The location is a little out of the way, but still a walking distance from Asakusa and from Tawaramachi Metro station on the Ginza line. The common areas had a great atmosphere - there was even a small Jazz concert on Thursday night!
