Amazing place to stay, incredible atmosphere. The staff are super friendly and extremely helpful.
Hopefully taking bath would be available for 24 hours, then people do not need to line up, but I believe during not busy period there would not be such problem.
I spent 9 weeks in Japan and it was by far my best hostel.
A great stay! Atmospheric old house and friendly staff.
Had a wonderful stay at Toco. Kiri san and his staff are so friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere of the place was awesome. Quiet during the day but buzzing at night when everyone is hanging out at the front bar. I really like the ryokan style of the place and relaxing Japanese garden.The location is in a residential neighborhood, close to subway, and amenities such as mini mart, sento, restaurants, etc. Will definitely stay here again.

There is nothing ... I repeat ... NOTHING to complain about this place. The Staff is very nice. The Rooms are clean as are the toilettes. The Livingroom also serves as a bar for japanese, so you can find new frinds every day (including the staff). oh ... and you get one free drink each day. isn't that great? =) https://www.facebook.com/toco.jp?ref=profile
Stayed for three nights in the mixed 8 bed dorm. A very well preserved 92 year old building. Staff were awesome, one free drink at the bar per day if you're keen (no pressure!). The rooms are tidy and comfy and you can truly make yourself at home. Bring ear plugs as the walls are literally paper thin (traditionally!)
Beautiful building, lovely rooms (be careful of your head on door frames if you're 5'10" or over) and a great garden outside. All of that as nothing compared to the welcome from staff, which was amazing. Loved my time here, and I hope to be back.
very nice japanese style hostel. you can have a welcome drink during your stay EVERY DAY. the rooms are nice, but due it's in a old house with paper walls it can be noisy.
This is a wonderful place to stay if you are looking to meet some people during your travels. The staff and the other guests are so friendly and outgoing. One of the staff members even gave me a hug as I was leaving! It helps that everyone gets 1 free drink per night - this encourages people to hang out in the common room together. The common room is also a cool place and inviting place to hang out.
This hostel is a little bit more expensive compared to hostel in tokyo but believe me, it's worth it. I really love the hostel design, the staff, and the location. Overall I had a great time staying at toco.
Overall, my stay there was very comfortable. The location is good, being close to the subway Hibiya line and JR Yamanote line at the same time. The hostel was very clean, although it was crowded. The female room at the 2nd floor is very nice,with a view to the garden.The double western room though(where I stayed) was very,very small and dark, with poor ventilation;this is the worst room in the hostel,all the others were nice.The staff is friendly and speaks English.
Toco heritage is the best hostel I've ever stayed at. It's a beautiful guesthouse, clean facilities, good location. And, most of all, I liked the hostel's atmosphere the most. All staff are very friendly, making the place like home. I met staff, Ryoko and Kyo-san who were very helpful. I would definitely recommend Toco hostel to my friends.
I loved this hostel. This hostel was my last of 4 that I stayed in on a two week vacation and it worked out good because it was so relaxing and the staff is the best. I would almost go back to Tokyo just to stay at this hostel. I really appreciated the staff and their friendliness! Location is good as well and the traditional Japanese design of the hostel was really nice.
I thought this hostel was amazing. It was my first time saying in one and I'm glad I chose this one as my first experience. Everything was always clean and tidy. The staff was super friendly and always said hello. They even helped me with directions with certain places I wanted to see. They really made everyone feel welcome. This was a great place to also meet other travelers to just have a chat with them and also share great places to visit. I would definitely come back again.
I absolutely recommmend this hostel ! First the location is great because 1min from the subway which is kind of important when backpacking ! :) second, its a traditional japanese house which takes you a little bit out of time in a crazy city like tokyo The staff is super friendly and having a bar open to public makes it even cooler since you can me local peope there. The only "bad" thing is thats a little bit noisy because the walls are super thin but after midnight everything is quiet.
I stayed only one night but would have happily stayed longer. The staff were friendly and accommodating, letting me store my luggage in advance of my stay for a small fee, and they have a great map of the area with recommended restaurants and shops. I enjoyed some delicious meals. And, I appreciated the free drink in the bar. They have a great drinks menu and it was so comfortable and pleasant. But, they're serious about lights out at midnight! It's a lovely building and garden, too.
This place has much more character compared to most Asian hostels due to the beautiful building and garden. Staff was very helpful and friendly.
This hostel is one of the best that I've stayed at! It's got all the basics down, like cleanliness, security, and location (it's a 1 minute walk from a subway station). On top of all of that, this place has an amazing atmosphere! The staff are are amazing, and the hostel itself is a site to see. It makes you feel like you've had an authentic experience of japanese culture :) This place is great for meeting other travelers. They offer a cheap homemade breakfast and a free drink every night!
This was an awesome hostel. I wished I stayed longer. Unlike some of the bigger hostels, it's not as noisy and dirty. The rooms were very clean and there is a bar where you can talk with other guests. They do have a lights out, so you can only use the showers during certain times, but its to be considerate of the others. Breakfast was delicious too. Very close to the JR station so you don't have to take the subway.
