I wish I had been able to stay longer here! The room themes are very cool, and they even have a manga reading room! Kitchen/common room area was well-kept, everything was clean. Reasonably close to subway/metro stops and shopping. Staff was very helpful!

Very friendly staff. Very clean bathrooms and comfy beds. Would definitely book again for my next time in Tokyo.

Very helpful and friendly staff. The neighborhood is more laid back than other districts which is a good thing, for me at least. The hostel is maybe too big, this is surely why the atmosphere is not that incredible. But I will definitely recommend that place.

Location is a bit far from subway station but pretty close to Tsukuba Express. Nearby has almost everything like 24 hr Donki and 24 hr supermarket, convenient store, matsuya, yoshinoya. Also a lot of famous restaurant nearby, pretty famous unagi shop is right next to the hostel.

If only the upper bunk won't make the rustle and noisy sound when I toss and turn, everything would be great there. I love the complimentary of little cute hairband and tissue on the wash basin.

The motion sensor lights in the room were not good. We actually had to remove some of the lightbulbs to sleep. The location is great, the price is great, and the rooms are a good size. The Internet also worked very well.

Was a bit hot in the kitchen (also a bit small for the number of guests) and there was a small problem with the WiFi during my stay, but rooms, facilities and staff were great! :)

Great Hostel situated in a strategic place to explore Asakusa and at a really reasonable, affordable price. Loved the beds and look of the dorm in general and the cleanliness of the place as well.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place was clean and the second floor was spacious, can't say much about the 4th floor, but it's fine. The Staff were very friendly and informative! We kept on bumping into Naho everywhere, haha. The Hostel is located in a very nice area, nearby the Tsukuba Asakusa Station and the Asakusa View Hotel. So getting an Airport Limousine and to certain places are easier. The 711, Lawson and Family Mart shops are also closeby along with a Bento stall too XD

In general it was a good stay and good Price. It was nice that people could buy drinks and coffee in the machines. The staff was very helpful. However, there are several things to improve. The room doors should be locked with cards and not keys, because people are tending to forget to Lock the doors always, even at night, which results in low security. The beds should have curtains, because people do not respect others and keep the lights on until late hours, up to 1 am.

Very good, I recommend! I literally fell in love with the staff, so helpful! The only thing is the AC set to 17°C but you can change that.

It's a hotel, not hostel atmosphere. Really huge with 6~7floors in elevator. Jitchen is always full of kids, papas, mamas....

Everything was good. Price, facilities, wi-fi, toilet clealiness and service. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean and well maintained. Average for location not because it was very far from the metro or subway lines. In fact, its just 3 mins walk from the Tsukuba Express. However, Asakusa in general can be quite inconvenient since you have to get to shinjuku first most of the time. HOWEVER, if you're on a tight budget, i highly recommend this place. you won't regret it
