I had a very pleasant 3 night stay. All of the staff members were awesome. They always had a smile on their face and made me feel very welcomed. I highly recommend Oak Hotel to anyone who's thinking about visiting Tokyo.

The hostel itself is alright and it is like a hotel room but shared between four people. The experience there often depends on who is living with you. The staff were nice and it is pretty conveniently located with a small metro station close by and the Ueno JR station about a ten minute walk away.

This hostel has the most spacious and comfy female dorm room; most caring, professional, knowledgeable staff of all hostels in Tokyo – have stayed at 12 hostels and ins so far around Tokyo. This hostel is the best base for those who want to explore Japan, because it provides excellent information about what do do and not to do …. I know, because I have lived in Tokyo for 18 years. It is open minded, curios about different cultures and LGBT friendly. I am a regular...I am having fun. I love it.

Bathroom was out dated and needed some up keep. There look fo be mold starting to show in some places in the room and bathroom. Staff was friendly but did not seem to know their area of town very well. When asking for suggestions they often could not answer us and had to look it up but they were always willing to help. I also found the commen area a bit dark and un-inviting.

Oak Hostel is a nice place to stay and it was definitely nice to have the amenities (private room, good shower, cleanliness) after being on the rough-and-tough SE Asia travel loop for a month. However, the place definitely has more of a hotel than a hostel vibe. There's a small common room but travelers typically didn't gather there to socialize. Also, if you want to experience the nightlife in Shibbyua or Shinjuku and stay out past midnight, prepare for a $40USD cab ride home.

,,,been at hundreds of hostels and ins all around Japan. This is absolutely the best hostel for me. Nowhere in Tokyo you may enjoy such friendly, knowledgeable, fun, and helpful staff. The staff is open minded and enjoy ppl of all kinds of cultural backgrounds. It is one of the most LGBT friendly hostel. I visit Tokyo often and I use to stay in the female 4 bed dorm, which has a roomy female dorm room with a sofa, a desk with mirror and v comfortable beds. The shower is a bit too small for me.
