It is a bit hard to locate the hostel from the metro station.

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.

Great place to stay at on a budget, there is an elevator, a big common area/kitchen, and the rooms are beautiful.

Very convenient location to major tourist destination, however the nearest JR line station is located somewhat far (Ueno Station). Hostel is clean. Lockers are provided with keys, so you don't have to bring your own locker. Kitchen/social area is huge, very well equipped. I can easily recommend it.

As I find the rail lines easier to get around by, this particular location costs a little bit more to get to as the closest line is an express line. This chain appears to have various other locations in Tokyo, so if the service is similar, I may consider staying at a location more suited to my travel style.

It took me forever to get there... It's not easy to find. The beds are really comfy, but I didn't sleep that well because there's an automatic light in the dorm. So everytime someone gets up / comes back late, the lights turn on...

Very very nice Hostel. Diffrent types of rooms. Some are very stylish and in japanese style. Free Q-Tips, hairbands, washing powder and a hairdryer in all common bathrooms. The hostel is very clean and the stuff is very friendly and helpful. Had a great stay :)

I am from Hong Kong and traveled to Tokyo along. The hostel isn't too close to the railway station, but still in an acceptable distance. Excellent cleanliness. I stayed at mixed 10-bed dormitory room before I moved to 8-bed female room and I think the former is comfortable than 8-bed room, although the female room has its own bathroom inside the room, it is much more convenient.

A pretty awesome hotel, kinda feel like you are staying at a hotel more than a hostel. Really wish i could have spent more than one night there just because of the great enviroment it provided. Highly recommend the place. Staff was also very welcoming a friendly.
