    cute little hostel, tucked away in the narrow streets of asakusa. a bit hard to find without gps, but that is tokyo for you. close to uneo park and everything in asakusa too. staff were really chilled and friendly. very small hostel, but this is why it is so charming. seemed to have lots of Japanese people staying there as well, so good if you want to practice the language, get away from the big western backpacker hostels. best place I've stayed in months.
