Great place to stay while in transit through Tokyo, close to transport. A bit annoying that my booking was for a different branch of the hotel than the directions I had (directions for Uguisudani, booking closer at hotel closer to Ueno).


Great staff really friendly and helpful and they know there stuff. Good location and easy to get too. It was great that they spoke English and we could ask questions.


Great location. Mega friendly staff. Excellent value from money.

In Room 501, there was a very annoying and continuous sound (water heater? air-conditioner?) during our stay (5 days).

best hostel with regards of value. I have stayed there a total of 13 days during May and Sept at a nice 4-bed female only dorm room with a sofa and a makeup table. However, the bathroom and toilet are very small and I tend to clean myself at a nearby public bath instead. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They are such cuties.... I have great memories from staying there :)


I really enjoyed my couple of nights at this hostel. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful and the location was great! I'd definitely stay here again.


Good hostel with friendly staff. They've got everything you need (even a printer that you can use!) and getting to know people there is also easy. There are convinience stores nearby and it's easy to find.


Staff was tremendous and very helpful. Tenants were very respectful of each other.

The staff were great! Would stay again!


The room was really too small and even had a bad smell


It is conveniently located near Inaricho subway station and within walking distance from JR Ueno Station. I tried the Japanese--style room and it was quite tidy and comfortable. The staff is very helpful and friendly. It has three PCs with internet that you can use for free.


The location of the hostel was very convenient for us as it is just a short walk from Ueno station. The Japanese style double bedroom was just great, very comfy and provided all the necessities like towels, a hairdryer, a small fridge and even yukatas. I would definitely stay again at the Oak Hostel.


I've been there for my last night in Japan only, but I felt like it was a good hostel. I like that every room (even the dorms) has an own bathroom. Staff is friendly, and speaks surprisingly good english. To my ears, one of them even had a native-speaker level. There are vending machines for coffee, drinks and even beer in the common/reception area. There is not much to do around the hostel, but it is close to Inaricho Station and from there you can get pretty fast to either Ueno or Asakusa.


Staff excellent! Always smiling, joyful and helpful! Next time at Tokyo I'll take the Oak Hostel again!
