    Superb

    The location of Retrometro Backpackers was perfect since it was within an easy walking distance from the metro. The facilities in the kitchen and bath were excellent. The lounge is beautiful and is a nice place to hang out with fellow travellers or to just relax in peace. The hostel is smaller than the other ones I have stayed at, and it added to the charm of the place. I highly recommend this hostel to anyone looking to have a peaceful and comfortable stay in Asakusa.

    Very Good

    You get what you paid for, the facilities provided is enough and the hostel is clean. I wish there was locker/better space to put my luggage. The staffs are nice but one definitely hurt my feelings at the end of the trip by giving us the worst goodbye! We checked out at 11am and asked if we could leave our bags until 2pm but we came back at 4pm, it is only 2 hours different, check ins starts at 4pm anyways. We were treated like we were bad people (totally spoilt my Japanese experience).
