kids running around the halls, not the greatest customer service, lacking working wifi in rooms, rooms smelt, maybe because there was 8 in a room without ventilation, bathrooms were frequently used and not cleaned as often, no special japanese toliet seats, no shampoo or soap, breakfast was extra and not good, no effort was put in by reception to care. kitchen lacked materials to use, out of the 12/13 hostels I stayed in this trip this one wasn't the greatest. still decent.
Really nice hostel, only a few minutes from Asakusa tsukuba station. Met a lot of friendly people there from all around the world.
Very tidy but a little bit hard to find the hostel
Very convenient location, near temples, restaurants and even an amusement park. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is nice. The beds are somewhat little.
Very nice place to stay. I originally booked 2 nights but booked 2 more as it is such a good hostel. The staff are very friendly and its super easy to meet people
This is a real deal hostel. Groups, big rooms, fun posters, everything you'd want in a hostel. Hold up, is that mixed gender rooms? Don't tell Ash. Stay up until you can see everyone in the room. Then enjoy a sleep. Manchester man in the room is a sweetheart. Make sure you bring night clothes, don't sleep in your underwear in front of strangers.
We had some crappy roommates, but the hostel in itself was great. Quiet area of town, but easy to get around - close to Asakusa station, and in the heart of Asaksa's shopping/eating area. The staff is very helpful and sweet. Will most def stay here when I come back to Tokyo!

i enjoyed staying in Sakura hostel! very easy going atmosphere and very convenient location!
It was relaxed yet interesting and fun.
Descent hostel in a good area. You've got 2 choices of subway line to take you into the city. The hostel itself has a large common area where it's easy to meet fellow travelers.
Overall Sakura Hostel is a nice play to stay. The rooms are comfortable and the bathrooms are kept clean. The have a ton of information to help plan your time in Tokyo and the rest of Japan and the staff are very helpful. It is quite a large hostel, and while I was there it wasn't the most social atmosphere. Other than that it is a nice place to stay with a good location in Asakusa.
Everything is quite great in here. It is a "mainsream"-hostel with a good interieur. Mostly foreigners can be met here, the actual service is great and the front desk being permanently manned is quite convenient. The only disadvantage is that things like towels or shampoo need to be bought at the front desk. In most hostels where I stayed these things were avalaible for free.
I stayed in 3 hostel at tokyo, this was the worst. They tried to be too ocidental, what i mean, they dont have some cool and great stuff other hostels as anne hostel and oak zen hostel have like toto washlet (the great thing about japan). Also, the beds dont have curtains like all the other hostels in tokyo (one great thing). Other thing, the hostel is pretty far from the subaway station and not very clean.
The directions on the website are a bit confusing so use the map outside the metro station. Very well designed hostel with nice facilities, comfy beds, sound proof rooms, and a good vibe. Only complaint was the staff told me a taxi I need to take would be 20~25 bucks and it ended up being over 40. I would have made other plans if that was the case.
Definitely would recommend Sakura Hostel to anyone traveling to Tokyo. I stayed in a different location each night, but this is one of the places that stood out to me as one of the better hostels. The staff was extremely night and the few people I did have the chance to meet made for a pleasant atmosphere. If I get a chance to return to Tokyo and they have beds available I will definitely make sure I mix in a night or two here.
Excellent place to stay. It's a purpose-built hostel and it shows. Staff are very friendly and helpful with an excellent grasp of English. Close to tons of shops and restaurants as well as several sightseeing areas. Only gripe is that it's a bit far from a subway station. Will be staying there again on my return to Tokyo.
