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.

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!

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.

Thank you very much for the review. You actually have 3 subway lines more or less close by! But maybe the 2 are the most used ones. We are happy to hear that you met great people and had fun here in our lobby. Thank you very much for staying at Sakura Hostel Asakusa.

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.

Thank you very much for your review. It is nice to hear that you like our hostel overall. We are always trying to create a nice atmosphere here in the lobby, but of course it depends on many things. Maybe on your next stay with us, you will be able to meet more people here in the lobby, maybe while gaming, drinking or something else. We thank you again for staying with Sakura Hostel Asakusa and we hope to see you again soon!

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.

Thank you very much for your nice review! We are very happy to hear that you had a pleasant stay in our hostel and that our staff could be of help. We apologize for not providing towels and and shampoo for free. However, we are constantly thinking about ways to improve our hostel and the service. We will consider this as very possible way of improving the service. Thank you again very much for staying at Sakura Hostel Asakusa. We hope to see you again sometime here in Asakusa!

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.

Thank you very much for your review. We are very sorry to hear that. We are exchanging all beds for beds with curtains at the moment, but we apologize for not assigning you a bed with curtains on it. We are surprised to hear that is was not clean, since we do our best to keep everything as clean as possible. We apologize for the inconveniences. Thank you again for staying with us.

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.

Thank you very much for your nice review. We are happy to hear that you had a nice stay in our hostel. It can be hard to find us here in Asakusa. We are always open for suggestions to improve the directions. We truly apologize for giving you such wrong information. Of course the taxi price always depends on the route, traffic and so on. But nevertheless, this is a bigger difference. We are really sorry for that. Thank you again for staying at Sakura Hostel Asakusa!

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.

Thank you very much for your nice review. We are very happy to hear that you had a nice stay at our hostel! The walk to the station is with something about 10 min a little bit longer, but we hope the beautiful view of the temple area and the nice stores on the way made it a little easier for you! We thank you very much for staying at Sakura Hostel Asakusa and we are already looking forward to seeing you again here in Asakusa!

The hostel is nice, beds are comfy, breakfast is not included in the price and is a little basic (toast and drinks), but good breakfast places nearby. It is large and felt a little impersonal but the staff are very friendly and helpful. Asakusa is nice with traditional streets and temples. A few nice bars, cafes and restaurants nearby, and near the subway for easy access to the rest of the city, though it is not particularly central or a big nightlife area. I would stay here again.
