We booked a deluxe private room for 5 nights. To our surprise it had a little outside terrace with bubblebath. But it didn't work. But to sit outside at night was really nice! The staff was really helpful. Also the bar is really nice because the staff makes you feel welcome 😀 So that all was a big plus. Only the room was a little bit differtent from the pictures. It could use some fresh paint. Also it never got cleaned and we stayed 5 nights. But we did enjoy our stay! We do recommend this!

Very friendly staff who will wish you well when you set off and welcome you back when returning. It's positioned right next to a touristy area and a short walk to two major subway stations. The beds are spacious, but, while it's not a huge issue, a curtain would have been nice. The WiFi in my room worked maybe 10% of the time and unfortunately one of the elevators was out of order. Regardless, one of the nicer hostels I've been to, and even had a bar and comfortable common area.

The staff was great: really welcoming and helpful. Although the rooms didn't have much space for big luggages, we all still managed to have our own space. Everyone I met there and everyone in our rooms were really respectful of the belongings. I made some really good friends there, and the bar downstairs is great for meeting other people too. Loved Asakusa, love Khaosan.

I think most of the computers should upgrade. Also, the comic room should provide a remote for the air-con. It is good for the free drinks provided.

Reception staff is very nice, their spoken English is also very good. Location is so convenient, there are supermarket and DAISO nearby. Shared bathroom and shower are also quite clean. The biggest problem is that the wireless network is quite poor. I can hardly access the internet inside the room. Except this, it is a really nice place to live.

This hostel was perfect ! It was so easy to get there from the airport (Haneda). The staff was incredibly nice and friendly, the rooms/bathrooms were clean, and they even give you a ticket for a free drink in their bar (the perfect place to meet people !). I would definitely go back there if I come back to Tokyo.

Thank you very much for staying with us. We are very sorry that we couldn't arrange you in the same room. We hope you to understand that we tried our best but we couldn't since the day was fully booked all our bed. And also we must apologize to you about our receptionist's service. We will strain our staff to be able to give you better service. Thank you for your advice.

The wifi signal is quite weak in my room (5th floor). I have to go down to the pantry area in order to get faster internet connection, it should be improved! Overall its value for money and I definitely come back!

Really friendly staff, I was shown around the hostel once I'd checked in. The rooms were really clean and there seems to be a lot of events going on. I wish I could have stayed longer!

There was an odd smell from my roommate but I don't think it's the hostel's fault. Just saying this if maybe they can work on something for this.
