This was great- only spent one night but wish I had stayed longer! The staff were friendly, the bar and common area were great, welcome drink ticket is a plus! Good location (easy to find, but a bit of a walk to the metro). The ONLY thing that could make this place perfect would be curtains around the bunks so you can get to sleep early if you need to (like I did- I had an early plane the next day).

The photos are very enhanced and therefore misleading. I stayed in an 8 bed deluxe dorm that is shabby but has an en suite. The problem with en suites is that people use them all night so it is difficult to get sleep. In general the hostels facilities are good. The area isn't great but is close to the main temple.

staff are friendly able to communicate in English, giving lots of info of Japan. we can just leave our luggage there as we arrived early at 11am. The toilet is clean. I love the dining room, got vending machines of food and drink. Computers with free WiFi available at dining room. We checkout at 8am, but we can leave our luggage there till 10pm on the checkout day.We also can use their shower after checkout.Easy to locate this hostel if refer their direction map.

The dark and dingy lobby was a little weird considering how well lit and the large the kitchen area were. The rooms were 'creative' but looked better in photographs. I also stayed in the Khaosan Kabuki hostel and liked that location better all around.

Thank you very much for your staying at Khaosan World! We renovated a Love hotel to a guest house ,and we are keeping some design from Love hotel to make our hostel unique. But if you didn't feel right , we apologize you and we might re-design some of our rooms. We appreciate your advice. Thank you for choosing Khaosan group !

Great location and it was helpful to receive a bundle of information when checking in. Loving the atmosphere and the common room/kitchen is clean and welcoming. However, the internet service might need a little upgrade. Other than that, thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

i really recommend staying here. Location is cheap and cultural. Great staff helping all our unusual place requests, calling to book things for us, even having a few cheeky bevs with us and showing us a few cool bars! The atmosphere is family friendly in the kitchen area but all in all it's what you make of it and we did just that, went out and partied with other backpackers! Khaosan have several other hostels they organize cultural demonstrations with so we met people from other hostels!

We booked a deluxe private room for 5 nights. To our surprise it had a little outside terrace with bubblebath. But it didn't work. But to sit outside at night was really nice! The staff was really helpful. Also the bar is really nice because the staff makes you feel welcome 😀 So that all was a big plus. Only the room was a little bit differtent from the pictures. It could use some fresh paint. Also it never got cleaned and we stayed 5 nights. But we did enjoy our stay! We do recommend this!

Very friendly staff who will wish you well when you set off and welcome you back when returning. It's positioned right next to a touristy area and a short walk to two major subway stations. The beds are spacious, but, while it's not a huge issue, a curtain would have been nice. The WiFi in my room worked maybe 10% of the time and unfortunately one of the elevators was out of order. Regardless, one of the nicer hostels I've been to, and even had a bar and comfortable common area.

The staff was great: really welcoming and helpful. Although the rooms didn't have much space for big luggages, we all still managed to have our own space. Everyone I met there and everyone in our rooms were really respectful of the belongings. I made some really good friends there, and the bar downstairs is great for meeting other people too. Loved Asakusa, love Khaosan.

I think most of the computers should upgrade. Also, the comic room should provide a remote for the air-con. It is good for the free drinks provided.
