Khaosan World Asakusa is one of the best hostels I have stayed at: great facilities, good location, easily accessible and amazingly friendly staff. Good value for money as well.

No it's not as pretty as on the pictures, but after I went to another hostel in Tokyo, I thought this one was awesome. The rooms are actually big and the kitchen is very nice. All the common areas (lounge, kitchen, comic room, etc) are wonderful. Chose this hostel, remember the rooms are not as cool as what they look on the pics and you'll have a wonderful time!

The hostel is nice and clean. Staff is friendly but I was disappointed with customer service. My friend accidentally forgot to pack her Nintendo DS when we left for the airport. She e-mailed asking them if they could send it to her by mail, explaining that she would pay for any expenses they had to make in the process. However, they refuse to send anything outside Japan, even though a post office is around the corner and we would cover all costs. This is very weird to me.

Internet is unstable at times. Wi-Fi routers probably all use the same channel.

Really big hostel. But still lots of space for guests. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Easy to get to from the airport.

The staff were friendly and helpful, and the travelers are friendly I guess! The lounge area doesn't really have a nice vibe though, the smoking area in the terrace was better. Facilities are well maintained and clean, beds are comfortable. The wifi connection on the 5th or 6th floor (i forgot) in the 10 bed mixed dorm was really bad though... Location wise, it was good! Really near the station :D

It was so obvious that the hostel building was an old motel formerly(I even saw old sign of motel on the building). It had weird smell all around the elevator and the room. Also cleanliness of kitchen was so poor.

I stayed at Khaosan World Asakusa for two nights -- I was struck by how large the hostel was and all of the facilities available. The kitchen and bathrooms in particular were very nice. The kitchen was large, clean, and had a lot of room for cooking, and the bathrooms were very private (they were in the hallway, but had numerous toilets and showers each in their own private but spacious stall. The only downside is that the walk to the stations can be a pain, but the area around it is great!

We stayed in Tokyo for one week in this hostel, it was o.k. When you consider the location and the rates, it was a very good choice.

It's not a hostel, it's a hotel with a vampire-like feel converted into a hostel (and good price too :)

very accommodating. if you have anything to complain about, then you are probably high maintenance or you need to spend more money for a hotel.

It was a great location, though the nightlife is a bit dull. Overall though, it was a wonderful place, plenty to do, and everyone was kind and caring. I couldn't ask for a better place to stay on my first time in Tokyo.
