I stayed in four different hostels during my week long stay in Tokyo. This is definitely top 2 if not best. Location is awesome as it's close to restaurants/bars and subway. Eminities were good as well. Kitchen could be a little bigger but shouldn't be a problem unless several people are trying to cook a full blown dinner at the same time.

Staff very friendly and helpful. It is a Western style hostel so you wear your shoes inside which is convenient but the floors are not as clean in a Japanese style one. Coffee is not free but cheap and good value. Wifi signal good in lobby but very weak in my room. Lockers rather small: about 40x40x50cm; you need your own small padlock. They let the guests smoke near the doors so the ground floor air is often contaminated. Reception open 24hr. You have to provide your own soap.

You can't beat the location of this hostel. the Senso-ji Temple is right out the front door, along with a million restaurants and a theme park. Some of the comfier beds for Japan as well.

Friendly staff, and excellent location near Sensō-ji. But the dorm rooms are overcrowded and poorly ventilated. When I first went into my dorm, I thought I was going to throw up from the smell. Six people cramped into a room that would be too small for four is not ideal; uncomfortable and no sense of privacy. You can find better accommodation for a cheaper price! Oh, and your lockers are anything but secure. Old wooden lockers that a kid could open, and you have to bring your own lock.

Thank you very much for your review. We are very sorry to hear that it was not to your satisfaction. We apologize for the inconveniences and the smell in the room. The windows can be opened, but of course the smell always depends a little on the persons in the room. We truly apologize for the inconveniences and we hope to be able to show you that you can very much enjoy your stay at Sakura Hostel Asakusa sometime in the future. Thank you very much again for staying with us.

Very clean and well kept. The staff were really friendly and welcoming and spoke great English. The only downside is a little far from the subway. Breakfast deal is really great!

The bed sheets had holes and didn't even fit the bed porperly, the tops of the bunk beds were covered in dust as were the corners of the rooms - I don't think I saw any staff cleaning at all in my 5 day stay. The offered all you can eat breakfast for 315 was not great value as it was toast and not very tasty soup - I can get stuf for cheeper and tastier at the convini. The secure stroage for lugage down stairs was anythign but - the door open fully 24/7. Will not be staying here again.

Felt overpriced for the facilities, but the location was good if you want to be close to Sensoji. A medium walk to the metro ginza line station, maybe 15 minutes, but you can cut through Sensoji which makes the walk more enjoyable. Terrible wifi, very flakey when more than 2-3 people are using it and half the PCs were out of action. Avoid the house coffee also.

Thank you very much for your review. We are very sorry to hear that you didn't like our hostel that much. The Wifi can be slow sometimes, since everybody in the hostel, not only in the lobby is using it. So depending on what everybody is using it for, it can be slow. We sincerely apologize for that. Nevertheless are we happy to hear that you at least like our location! Asakusa is a wonderful place. We still hope to see you again sometime. Thank you very much for staying with us!
