Great international hostel, they put on loads of events and help you out in every way. Beds are comfortable with curtains and its quite lively. About a 10 minute walk to station but loads of restaurants etc nearby. Its decent price for Tokyo. Door has a key which is annoying sometimes, all other Japan hostels have a door code which is more convenient. But otherwise clean and would definitely come back!


The staff were very helpful and understanding. Only feedback would be that the mink blankets on the beds smelt like they had never been washed, and there were dribble stains on the pillow. From all the hostels we stayed in throughout Japan Sakura was the most expensive hostel and noticeably the least clean and with outdated facilities/amenities. A new paint colour on the bed frames, new duvets with washable covers and small touches like bodywash in the shower would make a huge difference.


Awesome hostel. Everything seemed very clean and great service from the staff. Beds were comfy and the option to change linen whenever was nice. Aircon in the rooms was brilliant and a life saver. Wi-fi wasn'tg bad although on the 4th floor signal could be a bit week in places. Didn't interact with others much as we were travelling in a group but we could tell that a lot of people mingled which seemed pretty cool. Would 100% revisit.

Its very good for me. The first time I a bit confuse about the direction but when I found the hostel its easy to find them. If uou have from Ginza line pls exit no. 1 I think its easy.


Bathrooms,toilets and the living room are quite small. the rest is OK .perfect location,helpful staff and very cheap.


basic hotel but very far from the station and a bit out of Tokyo. Thankfully the staff are very friendly and helpful


Very nice hostel! Staff was really friendly and the location is pretty good as well. It also is a good place to chill out and meet new people!


nice and friendly staff, comfy beds and a clean place. In my opinion little too far from city center.
