Had a great stay here for 2 nights. Nae was there to check me in and gave me a few helpful tips on the area and nearby attractions. There is a bicycle rental place just down the road where you can rent a bike for 300 Yen for the full day. Lots of restaurants in the area too, and it's just around the corner from some famous cooking-knife shops. The common area is cozy and comfortable, the right size to help people socialize. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed two nights. Very cosy, homely hostel with a good mix of people and upbeat atmosphere. Received a friendly welcome from the host who organised a special outing to a nearby temple on NY eve. Beds were very comfortable, living quarters bit cramped but this helped with meeting people - there was no option but to interact. Hot water is needed in upstairs sinks. Asukasa also bit far from main nightlife/shopping areas of Shibuya/Shinjuku so expect to use subway. But great value overall.

Staff were very friendly. It's a cosy hostel but a little old.

This was an great little hostel, with amazing staff who were kind and extremely helpful. The location was great, with it being 5 minutes walk to the nearest subway station. There was excellent restaurants near by which the staff will happily recommend. Overall I had a wonderful stay here and would definitely consider staying here again in the future.

Good location in Asakusa (big temple complex). There were a number of subway and train options (one to Narita, one to Haneda, one to Nikko). A small hostel w/ 2 dorms: one female and one mixed on 2nd floor up steep steps. Curtains and electric lights and outlets at each bed, but no lockers. Toilets and sink on 2nd floor, shower on ground. Staff very helpful with my 50 lb. bag (carried it up & down stairs for me), gave me advice and marked on map which subway to take. $2/night per left bag.

Great location if you wanna stay close to Asakusa. Easy to access to Narita from this hostel. Close to good restaurants. Nice spirit in the area. Far to some spots in Tokyo, but depends on what you are after. Nice spirit in the hostel; good staff and nice atmosphere. The fact that the hostel has few beds makes it quite personal. Strongly recommend this hostel!

Very laid back unique hostel in Tokyo! It´s a very cozy place and great value for money! Close to a metro station and located at a quiet neigbourhood, it´s very easy to meet people at the common room and dorms. Also, hostel got great facilities, comfy beds, hot showers and free wifi. It´s a great place to relax and staff is very kind, making the place feel like home. Excellent choice in Tokyo if you have the chance to book it :)

I had a very good stay there. It's a small hostel, only 14 beds, located in a quiet street, but only 10 min walk from the famous Senso-ji and close to transportation. Staff is amazingly helpful and friendly and will always come to you to ask what you did, how it was and advise you about other places. The hostel is kinda new, don't get fooled by its old-style appearance, that's its spirit. Once there, you'll just feel like home !
