    The Oak Hostel Zen is located in a quiet street in Ueno with a JR and a subway stop each about 5 minutes away and is easy to reach from Tokyo Station and Narita Airport. The room was very clean and cosy. You get a bottle of water per person each day if you agree to use your sheets and towels again. The backyard in combination with the Asahi beer vending machine was perfect for a cosy and cheap option to enjoy a drink after dinner.

    This hostel is located in a convenient location about five minutes away from the Uguisudani JR station. It’s one stop away from Ueno. The hostel is clean, and the beds are nice. The staff is helpful and kind. They also have a cool polaroid wall that you can be featured on! We were only here for one night, but really enjoyed our stay!

    A great stay while in Japan for a few weeks. It's close to a train station and there's a vendor who sells amazing grilled meats in the evening/night for super cheap outside near by. The place was very clean, they have good security. I thought it was easy to find as well.

    The private ensuit room was modest in size but clean. It was equiped with towels, yukatas, a tv and refrigerator. It is a short walk from the JR train station. Travelers only have to take one train from Tokyo station (if arriving via Narita airport). The hostel kitchen had a lot of space to work around other users. Staff was very helpful and kind.

    The shower temperature kept changing for me. Otherwise the bedding was really comfortable, and they had tidy spaces to work. Reception handled everything I needed, even an umbrella for a rainy day.

    It’s clean and shower is great with providing shampoo, conditioner and body wash. I like that the laundry is easy to use and access. Kitchen is spacious and I enjoyed free coffee and it felt very secure in terms of safety and lockers and stuff. It’s not really a place for solo travelers to meet other travelers but I would recommend if you need a couple nights to stay.

    Very clean and the beds were wonderful. Not much of an atmosphere to meet people, but that's normal in Japan. The staff didn't go out of their way to help us but were otherwise good.

    Very Good

    12 Jun 2019
    The kitchen area and living room area are separate, so there often weren’t many people around even in the evenings. Very good facilities and I would’ve stayed longer than 2 nights if it wasn’t for the social thing
