In Japan it is very important to be close to a JR Train Station. This hostel is more than 20 minutes walk of nearest one (there is a closer station, but it is not covered by the JR pass). Everything else is awesome. The staff is very nice, friendly, helpful. Funny, even. I liked. They have a nice pub, where the guests can have one free sake every night. It creates a good atmosphere. I felt at ease there. Good bedrooms and a very good galley. I totally recommend it.

Really awesome hostel. More like a hotel with some dorm rooms really. Very clean at all times and very comfortable and warm. Nice common area and large kitchen and plenty of toilets/bathrooms for all the guests. The bar was chill but fun and a good area to make friends. The staff are very friendly and more than happy to help with whatever you need. Asakusa is a great place to start if its your first time in Tokyo, as its a lot more relaxed and a nice retreat from the busier areas.

Fantastic stay, staff were so friendly and welcoming! Cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in too. Kitchen is really well equipped, bathrooms were very very nice, and the bunkroom I stayed in was in mint condition!

Common room is very noisy due to some always-running ventilators. Our room was very damp / moist and smelled like an old bathroom which isn't properly ventilated. We expected more, the pictures on the site are somewhat misleading. We had the green-coloured private room.

Everything about this Hostel was perfect, EXCEPT for the bunks not having curtains(every other hostel i have stayed at in Japan has had this feature) which meant a fair bit of interrupted sleep. Apart from that the Hostel is perfect, very big, and very clean, has its own bar which is great. The location isn't too bad, with the Tsukuba express a few hundred metres away(takes you to akihabara, which you can then get the loop too). A private room would make it a 10/10.

I had a great stay at Khaosan World Asakusa and I would definitely stay there again! My only suggestion to the hostel is to install curtains on the beds in the 10 man dorm for the extra bit pf privacy. Cheers

I really liked this hostel. The beds were super comfortable in the 10 bed dorm- like memory foam! The showers were spacious and hot. There is free coffee all day. I returned to this hostel after missing my flight, and stayed in the 6 bed dorm. It was very nicely decorated. There are probably places you can stay that are closer to the main attractions of the city, but all things considered, I would stay here again if I returned to Tokyo (In fact, I did, after missing my flight ;) ).

Only stayed at Khaosan world for a couple of nights but really enjoyed it! The staff were very friendly, and the place was so clean! They have a small bar open in the evenings which was nice too, got to try Saki for the first time! Definitely recommend

This is my second time at this hostel and is one of the best hostels I've stayed at. Conveniently located in Asakusa. Hostel has a great bar that features Jazz night every Thursday. Staff are very friendly and always helpful. Facility is very spacious and clean. I would definitely stay here again.
