Staff is very friendly, and overall stay is good. Room is well make up and clean. Staff able to communicate very well in English. 5 star hotel service at a budget hotel pricing ! A little hard to find though.. I got off at Ueno station, following the instruction after crossing the road and pass under the overhead bridge, i was lost at how to proceed. might be better to put the road name as mention 'walk along xxx road' The hotel was a little 'hidden' and i turned at the end of the road instead.

Everything is satisfactory. Maybe we weren't at the right time but nothing really happened, I usually make friends at hostels but no one was really socialising. They have everything you need though, and the neighbourhood is very quiet. The staff is amazing, and you feel very welcomed. Recommend this place if you just want a place to sleep quietly.

The staff are very friendly and they are a great source of information. The location is very central; a couple of train stops away from Asakusa and Ueno. The facility in the dormitory is bare minimum. The kitchen has no fridge, although the staff can help you store your food in the reception area.

Drying machine could be updated, even thought there are professional machines within reach. All others are at good or excellent level.

The staff was so helpful and there is plenty of information available for adventuring around Tokyo. They even got my room ready early since I was exhausted from my flight, and let me keep my bags there all day when I checked out.

I was in quite a tragic situation before I broad a plane to Tokyo. However once I got there at Oak Hostel the staff were so nice they tried to do their best to comfort me and helped me feel a lot better. Cons: The dorm and its bathroom are too small. The ac doesn't work. It was too hard to breathe. And the room stinks. It's perfect just to get to sleep as late as possible and spend the rest of the day in the city tho. It's only 3 min. from Metro Ginza line.

Oak Hotel is by far my most favourite place to stay at in Japan. Good rooms, location and the service is very good. Staff are welcoming and are willing to assist you in anything you need.

I love this place! I'll definitely stay here next time I'm in Tokyo. The location is near the train stations and the Ameyoko Market! The place is peaceful :)

The shared rooms are reasonable. Internet works well. I really like the location near Ueno; it is more quieter and more laid-back than many districts in Tokyo, but close to many cultural attractions.

Excellent place to stay for those who want to explote and enjoy Tokyo .... excellent and very professional staff. The female room is spacious, very comfy and is getting better... now with flexible bed lights. I have lived in Tokyo for 16+ years and know most of the places there; this place is among the top 3 in Tokyo in case you are looking for a dorm. Try the onzen-style zento nearby to really spice up your Japan exprience being naked among lovely friendly locals.

I think it is a hotel. Good location. It is very hard to find a budget place near Metro in Tokyo. Oak Hotel is one of the exception in Tokyo. Cleaning lady tidy up your bed and washroom everyday. Small room, but I think it is okay in Tokyo. No breakfast, but you can find your breakfast easily nearby. Highly Recommended.

You cannot beat this place. It's right near the Ginza line and really close to Ueno Station. I stayed in a single room, and it was extremely clean and comfortable. They provided things like a toothbrush, soap, tea, and even travel adapters for a deposit. I only stayed for 2 nights so I didn't need to cook or do wash, but there was a kitchen and a washing machine. Also, free wifi! The staff was so nice and accommodating. I highly recommend this hostel. Great value.

Very helpful and courteous staff even though I kept asking questions. The location is pretty good if you want to have very calm nights and mornings. The beds and linens were extremely comfortable. Probably the best I've slept in a hostel in a while.
