This place was great. The beds are super spacious, the bathroom is so clean and the facilities are plentiful and awesome. There are 6 stories, several indoor and outdoor (smoking/ non-smoking) lounges, bar, karaoke spot, kitchen and dining room, and tons of bathrooms. Not to mention, the location is GREAT! Friendly staff, I highly recommend it.

Easy to find the place, pretty close to train station and sightseeing places in Asakusa. Room is not as good as the picture but comfortable and clean. Staff is pretty accommodating although can be more friendly. Overall, it was a decent stay.

Look I don't get this hostel it confuses me. I also don't get why everyones really into it. The bed didnt have curtains. It would be good maybe if you were with a bunch of friends but I found it awkward as solo. Lot's of partying tourists and families, it's a wierd combo. Like 10 mins + from any train you'll actually use but cool area.

Overall this is a terrific hostel. Actually, my stay was so good I wanted to extend my stay, but when I asked the girl in reception about extending my stay I was met with complete indifference. Although I politely asked about the availability the following days she didn't really seem willing to help me. Generally the staff is really good though.

Very helpful staff. Big kitchen with everything you'd need. Free tea and coffee. Free umbrellas if it decides to rain. Excellent location with a big market, temple, karaoke bars and discount department store across the road. Food stall across the road sells Japanese meals for as little as ¥200. Great value stay on Tokyo

This hostel is massive! It's a great spot to meet people but it's not the most relaxing of places. There are much better options if you want a relaxing place to stay but if you just want a place to crash, dump your stuff and party Id say it's pretty good!

I enjoyed very much the staying in this "Khaosan World Asakusa Hostel". Room is very clean, curtain is provided in the female dormitory and my room mates are not type of noisy people at night. I do not have much time interaction with the Staffs. I suggest Hostel to arrange Asakusa City Tour on certain days, this will impact to better understanding of foreigners to the Japanese culture and habbits. Japan is so and very much spectacular !!!!

One of the best hostels I have lived in yet. Rooms and washrooms are clean (both were unisex). the location is great for Asakusa temple but very far from shibuya and shinjuku.

Rooms were great. Capsule beds feel so much more private. Staff were mint, communal areas are fantastic. Slight walk to tube lines, but good area in asakusa with plenty going on around. Seems expensive for a dorm bed but it is Tokyo, but compared to cheaper options it's so much better value for money.

Perfect hostel apart from the fact the had no wifi. If you don't care about the wifi then this is the defect place to stay. If you do care about wifi, don't stay here.

We had a very nice time at Khaosan World Asakusa Hostel. The room was big enough and tidy and the staff was very friendly and helpful. There was not a lot of atmosphere at the bar, but I guess that always depends on the people. If you're not looking for a party hostel, but a nice place to spend your nights while exploring the area during the day, Khaosan World Asakusa Hostel is great. My only suggestion for improvement: towels should be provided in the rooms.

This is a great hostel (like all hostels in Japan). The staff were very helpful and the bar was a lot of fun! The location is not that great compared to the other Khaosan branches but this has a hot food vending machine, bigger kitchen and it's own bar!

I really enjoyed staying here. I was only in Tokyo for a short time, but between the staff and the folks I met it was a great experience.
