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.


This my first ever hostel ive stayed, in and had a awsome time, dint regret making the decision to stay here


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


Smart location,


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.


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.


Clean, excellence Staff, good Location.


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.


Love you guys!


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!
