Huge common area with everything: kitchen, tv w/games etc, eating area, guide books, computers, laundry, etc. Lots of people hanging out there. Cheap, really simple breakfast (all-you-can-eat toast and coffee and thin soup) available starting at 5AM -- helped us get out early with warm food in our bellies. Room pretty spartan -- off an unheated exposed corridor. Disrobing in the unheated shower vestibule in mid-January took some willpower. I would describe the aesthetic as brutalist dingy/fancy.

i suppose they can do better in term of managing. there is no slipper provided for you to get into toilet. i have to go into nearest mart to buy one. there is no shampoo and soap provided in bathroom so bring your own. kitchen are ok and breakfast are 350Y per person (no free tea or coffee like other hostel we went).

Staff were not polite and the hostel wasn't as secure as you would expect from a popular hostel in Tokyo, save yourself a bit of money and stay in a capsule hotel.

This was the best hostel I've ever stayed in! The showers are amazing and the staff was incredibly helpful. I would recommend this hostel to anyone!

The Staff is Great, bit off the Beaten path of craziness that can be Tokyo, but your RIGHT behind the Shrine. Also the Sky Tower casts a Shadow on it.

Nice staff, nice atmosphere! Felt as if the basement, were the dorms were located , wasn't a priority to the hostel, as it was really dirty.

A nice place to stay but not so clean

The hostel was very cozy and the staff was friendly and accommodating to an English speaker like me! I was worried about securing a bed in an all female dorm while in Tokyo as a solo traveler, but this hostel had one available and didn't charge extra like some hostels do. The common area is a nice way to meet other travelers. While it isn't the newest building, it was very clean. It is located in a very tourist friendly part of town. I would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Good place to short-staying tourism, backpackers, etc. Behind Asakusa temple, ideal for tourists. A little hidden by others buildings but in a calm place where you can sleep well after going around Tokyo. Maybe beer was a little expensive.

Solid hostel, very big and good facilities. It's close to the Sensoji Temple and the central Asakusa area, about 10 minutes walking from the Asakusa subway station. I didn't have the breakfast but it looked simple, and it was about 300 yen or so. Maybe it's worth it, I just went to a convenience store around the block. Overall great place, it was a little empty so it may be hard to meet people depending on when you go and how many people are there, but worth it for the price.

The best perk of staying at this hostel is the many interesting cultural events they plan for guests! We got to tour a local New Years Festival and meet Sumo wrestlers (a rare opportunity). The staff were very friendly and accomodating. As for the actual facilities, it may not be much to look at but it has everything you need and is in good condition.

Sakura Hostel Asakusa was exceptional. Friendly, helpful, interesting staff. Excellent location right by Senso-ji shrine and the Asakusa markets. Clean facilities. Excellent showers with very hot water and excellent pressure. I have zero complaints. I recommend it without reservations. Should I be in Tokyo again, I will return.

Nice place in Tokyo. Good location, with easy access to trains that will get you anywhere in the city. Great space on the first floor for meeting other travelers, and inexpensive breakfast and coffee\tea available too. One note on the directions - if you are arriving late at night the Hanayashiki gift shop will be closed, and it's easy to walk past the turn. The Pachinko place will be open and lit up, so look for that instead.

I've been staying for 4 nights at Sakura Hostel Asakusa... as the location wise, it's very near to the famous Sensoji Temple and also the Nakamise Street, which is good for me to souvenir shopping. Only at first my husband and I find it very difficult and too far to walk from Asakusa Station. But after we finally arrived only been told that there's 3 metro station and the nearest is Tsukuba Express so after that it was a lot easier.. For the hostel we find it a little bit too small.

Great location with a 24hr reception that is very knowledgeable about the area. Subway pass offered is a great convenience. Would stay again.
