Sakura Hostel Asakusa, Tokyo, Japan
8.6
13th May 2016

Sakura Hostel is a great place to be in Asakusa. It's about a 10 minute walk from both Asakusa and Ginza station. It's really close to Senso-ji and tons of restaurants. The hostel itself is older, but it's clean. What is really the best thing about it is you can bring 'outside' people inside until 10 pm, so it's a great place to meet with local friends. You can also leave luggage long term!

Very nice hostel. It's very clean, and the staff are very friendly. It's right behind Senso-ji, so easy to find.

One of the nicer capsule hotels in Asakusa. I was impressed with the space of the capsule and the quality of their baths. The location is excellent (right by the subway exit and less than a block from Senso-ji). I would stay here again.

I enjoyed my stay here. It's not the Ritz, but for the price and location, I feel it was the best place I could get. Despite the place being old, all the facilities worked great and they have fast wifi. Whenever you leave, don't forget your key! The staff will expect you to leave it with them anytime you leave. The staff themselves are very sweet... if you follow their rules. The older gentleman who runs the hotel is a pro at origami, so it's a good way to strike up a conversation with him.

Aso Base Backpackers, Kumamoto Pref Volcano Aso, Japan

3rd Dec 2013

Aso Base Backpackers is literally a 2 min. walk from the train station and very easy to find. The hostel itself is beautifully decorated and homey-feeling. You can't check in until 4 P.M. when they open the receptionist desk, but you are welcome to leave your items until then. Also, for those who are more sensitive to the cold/ its getting close to winter, if you book a dorm room, there is no heating. This is a great place to be if you are looking to be social. I had a great time!

Hotel Kaga, Osaka, Japan
8.6
19th Nov 2013

While most would agree it is not in the best of areas, I feel the price is worth it. Not once did I feel unsafe. Also, it is a very close walk to the JR stations and only a 10-15 minute walk to the more touristy parts of Osaka. The staff were very kind and sweet people. Not the best place if you are wanting to meet other people, but traveling solo or with a group, I think this is a great place. I would stay here again.

Hotel Bronckhorst, Amsterdam, Netherlands

This hotel is in a great location, just a 2 minute walk to the museum district. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The room is very small, so be prepared to adjust. But, I felt it was worth the amount.

Stayokay Amsterdam Stadsdoelen, Amsterdam, Netherlands

22nd May 2013

For a first time trip to Amsterdam, its very easy to find the location. It's in a lovely place, very close to several attractions. The tram stop is only a 5 min. walk, or most other locations (like Dam Square or the Museum District) are a 10-15 min. walk. I originally was only going to stay at the Stayokay for the first part or my trip, but I enjoyed it so much, I cancelled my other hostel and extended my stay. It can be a little pricey, esp on the weekends, but I feel the location is worth it.
