The staff are nice, they extended the best services to us. We had a good stay in this hostel. A good and strategic location to get around Tokyo.
Excellent stay, close to the subway, huge room with own bathroom. Staff was so helpful and friendly. Amazing for the money! Definitely would recommend!!!!
What a fantastic place to stay in Tokyo!!! Tokyo Ueno Youth Hostel is very clean, spacious, affordable and offers great amenities. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and go out of their way to assist you to plan your travel arrangements. Had a wonderful time here. I will be back and highly recommend it to others!
We stayed in a private room with bunk. Very solid room with great A/C unit, little table and couch, and private bathroom with fancy Japanese toilet and hot water. The staff was also extremely helpful and friendly: they agreed to stay almost 2 hours past their normal closing time b/c I arrived on a late flight. They also gave us great tips about Tokyo and helped us book a capsule hotel in Osaka on the phone in Japanese. Atmosphere could be a tad more social, but that probably varies by day.
Amazing Location! Amazing staff! Clean! AWESOME!!!! Amazing atmosphere and friendly and helpful staff. And, the location is just perfect, near to all main attractions. The hostel is one of the best I've stayed in. The building is not updated and fancy, but the rooms are clean, comfortable and includes private bathroom facilities. And the rate is extremely reasonably priced. Overall a great find and a great stay...highly recommended !! I'll stay longer next time - Definitely!!!

Odd mix between hostel and hotel. Private ensuite rooms and no dorms make it more like a hotel. The common room on top floor doesn't seem to get used. I occasionally heard other guests but I didn't see any. But no free stuff (like towels and toothbrush) make it more hostel-like again. So it's not a place to meet people but it's good otherwise. There are some cheap restaurants around and it's just 5 minutes walk from JR station. Oh, but beds are not big enough for 6'2" boy!
Great , friendly staff. Spacious, clean rooms - highly recommended.
Great location in Ueno but hostel is lacking a bit and has next to no atmosphere due to it all being private rooms. Common room was always empty and kitchen facilities were none existent. Just a fridge. No free pc to use either, further hindered by poor Wi fi signal in rooms. Good location but nothing else really.
Thankyou for making our stay at Ueno Youth Hostel a comfortable experience. The staff and atmosphere was most welcoming and they were able to help us buy event tickets and find locations. Would only suggest an update in the directions of finding the hostel as it was the only thing we found difficult. Thankyou again
