Located a bit off the centre (but close to a metro-station and shops) this hostel offers spacious dorms (each bed with locker and lamp plus curtain), a kitchen, common-area, enough bathrooms and showers and stable/fast wifi. The staff is friendly and helpful. Security is good....More
I chose this place because the wonderful hostel I'd stayed in on my last visit to Tokyo had closed, and the other HI hostels were booked out. Rather than lug my suitcase from the subway station, I caught a taxi from Akihabara, but even my...More
We got off at the Asakusabashi station and headed to look for the hostel. The time was around 11pm which was 1 hour before the check-in time ended. However, we couldn't find the hostel for the one hour. We walked east, west, north, and south...More

Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
