The hostel has an elevator, So not worry to carry your heavy luggages. To find this hostel needs time to walk around 10 minutes from minowa station. Room complete with shower, TV, AC, refrigator, and has a small balcony.
The hostel was very easy to find, and it was great because we had 6 people exactly so we got a room to ourselves. The rooms are somewhat small, but it is Tokyo so we already expected that. Good for money considering its in Tokyo, tons of brochures and maps on the front desk. We actually arrived very late even after the staff left and they left us our key and everything for when we arrived that so was a great suprise!
Lovely hostel! Nice and cosy, and the staff speak very good English and were very helpful. The nearby temple are also very lovely.
I rated security poor because they will charge you money if you want to use locker. I think all dormitory guest should have access to locker for free or be included in the bed rate. Other than that, I love the character of this hostel. The location is okay because nearest conveience store is about 10 minutes walk from hostel.
Towels and lockers charged 100 yen. Close to Ueno and Asakusa, but if you're into the nightlife or even late dinners, you'll have some trouble with bus and subway closing hours. Prefer Shinjuku or Shibuya.
At first I was annoyed at the run-down look of this ma
The Hostel was ok. Definitely not the best you can find in Tokyo, but decent for the price. We had some problems with credit card payment and so had to transfer money to get enough cash, which was a bit bothersome. Also the owner told us in the first place that credit card payment would cost 5% extra, which is not appropriate these days I think. The room was ok for two people and we had the bonus of having our own fridge. It's a bit far off from all stations so the location is not the best.
Relatively average hostel. The private twin rooms with ensure bath are a nice luxury, but the location isn't that grand. It isn't that close to anything of note.
It is a good place to stay. Staff is very friendly and speaks very good english, except for the current owner. The location makes it an excellent base of operations for trips to Asakusa and the rest of Tokyo and surrounding areas. Hygiene...well, cleaning up the hair in the showers would be a good thing.
