Helpful staff, good english and happy to provide information Hostel 10 mins walk from Minowa station, fairly straight-forward to find. Cleanliness was fine. Unsure about value for money - but prices similar to most other places in Tokyo


I have booked 4 beds and 3 beds with ensuite room for the rest of us 7 people. We got only 4 beds with ensuite room when we arrived. Another room (for 3 people) was separated into another building included only a toilet bowl, the bathroom located in other building! We thought it was unfair to us. We paid full price for 2 set of ensuite rooms. There came an arguement until we told him we would call the tourist police to solve the issue. At last, he decided to give us some of our money back.

Very nice hostel. We stayed in a private twin room, which was huge and more like a small flat. It is quite a ways from the JR station, but there is a metro station close by and it is only 170Y fare. Abakusa is in walking distance. The staff is very nice and can give you good tips for Tokyo.


Good choice


I stayed in the 10-person dorm - quite spacious. Getting to the hostel is easy if you are coming from HND airport. Showers are clean and hot. Plenty of 7-11s around to get cash. The host was nice, spoke English, and gives great directions. The wifi went out for two days, and was weak when it did work which made it hard to plan sometimes. There were spacious lounge zones at the hostel. This is where I met about 5 people and hung out a bunch. Overall, I enjoyed my stay.


I agree with another reviewer who seemed to feel like this hostel might have been more appealing back in the day but has lost its shine. The location is pretty poor relative to all of the other options you have. Beds small and thin, and 6 bed dorm is mis-advertised considering it is attached to a 4 bed dorm, so more effectively a 10 bed dorm.


This is a nice hostel in a pleasant area of tokyo, 5 minute walk from metro station meaning you can get to ANYWHERE within the hour which is great! Shower was super powerful and hot :)


Room is nice but no staff clean up room during my stay.

The hostel room was filthy when I arrived, although that was due to the occupants. Trash, clothes, personal products, and strands of hair were everywhere. Perhaps a notice to other occupants to help keep the area neat and remind them they are sharing the space.


Excellent staff I highly recomand this place


Staff is very nice, hostel location is very near subway station. Toilet and bathroom is good but lower bed in dormitory is little bit small.This hostel is valuable for this price.

Very nice place and really nice staff always here to help. We stayed 3 night in the 6 female dormers and we appreciate our stay . Bathroom and rest room were very clean. Sofa is appreciable, such as lockers in the room. A bit fare from the railway station ( minowa station is about 10/15 mn of walk) but the place is located nearest the centre of the vibrant asakusa area and it s very easy to join it by a 15/20 minutes walk =).
