The staff were very friendly and informative, have a great kitchen and hall and a lounge for the guests. We wanted to stay for five nights but only two nights were available, what a pity. Will stay again should we have chance to come to Asakusa again.

The staff are very friendly and helpful! Great location and value. One of top 3 best hostels I've stayed at around the world! (out of 70 or so) -The tea towels in the kitchen could be larger so that guests can dry their dishes better. -The kitchen could use a few more tools for cooking. -People in the dorm/shared rooms tended not to lock the rooms, which is fine with the lockers provided for valuables, however I could see some guests finding that odd with their belongings inside. Thanks!

Its my first time in Tokyo and im very happy im stay at this hostel. The bed is so nice and clean. I stay at female only dorm with 8 bed with bathroom inside (im so excited got bathroom inside the room at hostel!). They have big fully equipped kitchen. You can cook whatever you want there. All the staff is really nice, even not all can speak english very well but they really nice. The comic room and massage chair is free to use. Can u imagine that? Im sure i will come back again to this hostel!!

The best hostel I've stayed so far. Super friendly staff, they have a bar inside the hostel, and they host free live jazz shows every thrursday. Very clean place. Every room has it's own style, personal lockers, and private shower/bathroom. Free shampoo, soap, cofee, tea, enormous kitchen area. Laundry spaces in almost every floor. Relaxing areas in every floor. Wifi all across the building. Easy to get to, not far, but 2 subway stations away from central tokyo. Awesome place and location.

I loved this hostel and the entire Khaosan chain! Staff speak amazing English (and my Japanese is terrible :-( ), they are very polite and helpful. Rooms and bathrooms are clean and spacious. Free wifi is awesome, great location close enough to subway stations and 7-eleven close by for suppliers. Asakusa is a wonderful area. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommended for future travellers!

Had a great time at this hostel - we even booked it again for our last night in Japan before our flight back! Has everything you need, and is in an interesting neighbourhood.

Best and cleanest out of the 4 in tokyo I've stayed in so far. Great position, just be careful not to go to the other khaosan hostel next to the river, not that they are bad, just not the right one.

LOVED staying at this hostel. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and the atmosphere in the kitchen/bar is prone to meeting others, so you might make friends with some fun people, grab a drink with them and stumble back at 3am.

Nothing wrong with the hostel but it felt more like a hotel. Groups and families typically stay here so it's a little different from other hostels I've been to which were more popular with solo travelers.
