Location is great, close to Ueno and Asakusa area. Rooms were small but clean, in the bathroom there was a strange plastic smell. Common area could be bigger and the kitchen needs some more equipment. Hostel staff was very friendly and nice, but unfortunately it's more like a shared room "hotel". Anyway the people at the receptions are well-prepared for travellers and they have many suggestions and brochures to spend a good time in Tokyo!

Nice location, not a long walk from subway and the train station. Two stops away from Akihabara. Staff were super helpful and the single room I had was well worth the money.

I loved everything about my stay. The staff was kind and helpful, the room was great, well stocked, and cleaned daily, and the location couldn't have been better! The only minor negative was the loud AC unit on the building next door that was audible at all hours even with the window closed (hardly the hotel's fault though). If I go back to Tokyo I'll be sure to stay at the Oak Hostel again!

Wonderful small hotel with extremely kind and helpful staff! I regret having only stayed there for one night, but return at any moment staying in Tokyo. Calm environment, but only 10 minutes walk to Ueno station.

Room and bathroom were extremely tiny. Seemed to pay a lot for a private room. Not good bang for buck.

Not really a hostel...more of a business hotel. Decent value. Unfortunately, our whole room, especially bed/futon, felt very damp and smelled strongly like mildew. Probably would not stay here again.

Really friendly and helpful staff - brilliant after arriving on a long flight with only a couple of hours sleep

Didn't feel clean. The room smelled a bit like bathroom. The window is strange and the layout of the room is very strange also. Something on the wall just had a duck tape. I wanted to leave the room as soon as possible. They need to update the rooms.
