Decent hostel in Asakusa (close to Sensō-ji temple and some good restaurants). Next subway stop is a 10 minute walk away. Stayed in a double-room. The room only contains 2 beds and AC/heating didnt really work well. It was very hot in the room during the day and quite cold at night. Additionally if you need to go to the bathroom/toilet you need to walk down the corridor outside, which can be very cold in winter. But staff was helpful and friendly. Common area is a good place to meet people.

I deliberately chose this place for its location as it is near areas where I wanted to visit. It has what you would expect from a hostel. Met some really good people here

Entire place smells horrible. If you want to get any air into the rooms, you have to open the door to where everyone stands outside and smokes. This place is also a good 15 minute walk from the nearest subway station. While the walk from the station to the hostel is safe, it is not a convenient location.

Best place to stay in Tokyo, Excellent stqff and great location. Meilleure auberge de Tokyo, un personnel dévoué et efficace et situé au meilleur endroit dans asakusa. Beaucoup de français là-bas.

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

Old hotel turned into a hostel. Sometimes it was hard to find, it's behind an amusement park right near the 5 story pagoda. Free Wi-fi on every floor and several computers in the common room free to use. Common room lacked atmosphere. Kitchen was quite small. The rooms have air con and the bed was quite comfy. Staff were helpful. I preferred another hostel in Tokyo.

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!
