A perfect place to stay in Tokyo”

As someone's who's been to quite a few hostels over the years, I wasn't expecting anything spectacular given the low price for each night, but I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised with Khaosan World. The whole place is clean and spotless, the dorm rooms are spacious enough and actually quite comfortable, the staff are courteous and more than willing to help answer any of your questions, the kitchen is stocked with free tea and coffee in addition to free breakfasts in the morning, and that's not even mentioning the great location of the hostel... for the price you pay, you really couldn't ask for a better hostel. The next time I'm in Tokyo, I'll definitely be staying here again!

Amazing experience ”

I spent 5 days in Khaosan World Asakusa Hostel, being one of those days my birthday in which they offered me a birthday present and everything. The staff is friendly, funny and very helpful. Rooms are clean. Magnificent common room and a cool bar. The only downside was that I lost my key and had to pay 2000 yen but at the end of the day would recommend it 110%.

New opened, Nice staff, Big dormitory room

I had my stay in Khaosan World hostel in their grand opening period. They were having price promotion (500 Yen off). I stayed in the 10 bed mixed dormitory for 5 night, all the things were 100% new! The public toilet and shower room is next to my dormitory room, the toilet and shower facilities are new too. I saw staff cleaning the room all the time. All reception staff are Japanese with well spoken English, they are very nice too. This place is little bit far away from the Ginza line metro, 15 mins walk is necessary. However, you can find Uniqlo, Book shop, fresh market, Sushi bar, 100 Yen Lawson shop for just 5 mins walk. In the night, you can pass by Kaminarimon and Sensoji. It was beautiful. I will come again, Thank you.

Valued stay!”

The hostel is just 1-2mins walk from A2exit (in Asakusa Tsukuba express station) Pretty close to Sensoiji so, you can visit the temple at night to take a shot of sensoji and Tokyo skytree together. Actully Tokyo Skytree is visible from the hostel alley. Many food shops and convenience stores around. Tax free shopping building and also a shopping mall. You can find many good ramens, takoyaki and karage here too. Staffs are nice, as I told them that I'm easy to get lost even I has a map in my hand, So they kindly explain me how to find the way get back to the hostel if I get lost. The room is clean and comfortable. The dining room is clean and have 24/7 Food & drinks vending machine.

First backpacker experience ”

We booked khaosan world hostel Asakusa through Agoda and it was promo around $23, this is my first experience stayed in backpacker losmen. We got bunk beds on 6th floor, a room with 6 bunk bed 🛏 (12 person mix dorm). It is awkward to stay with others that we don’t recognise. The room is clean, but outside share bathroom and toilet are dirty and smell. They give us personal key (room key to enter room and locker key to keep our precious things/other). It located superb location asakusa area,shopping centre and near to sensoji temple. It’s about 5 minutes from Asakusa Don Quijote (in front asakusa there is Tsubasa station). It is around 1h10m from Narita Airport or we can take Skyliner train and walk around 20mins. I saw lots of family stay in this hostel. If we have limited budget we can stay this hostel. Staffs are friendly and helpful.

Convenient, great place for backpackers”

Near subway and Asakusa, helpful staff, + points for the free use of massage chair

We only stayed here for one night, but my friend and I enjoyed our stay at Khaosan World. Our room was more like a couple's room, but we didn't mind. The bed was a bit small for 2 people, but I guess this is the standard size for a double bed in Tokyo. The hotel staff who greeted us was warm. Since we arrived early, we left our luggage with them and had lunch. There are numerous restaurants and convenience stores nearby. You you also buy food and eat at the kitchen. Vendo machine for food is also available. If you're tired after walking for a day, you can also try the massage chair (they have two) for free! For those who would like to explore Asakusa, Khaosan World is a good place for those on a budget.

Good, cheap stay for groups of 4-6 people”

+ Khaosan's are great alternative to shuttle or small rooms around Tokyo. Asakusa Hostel has convinient location - in short walk range to Asakusa market and Daimon. Supermarket just around the corner and many restaurants that are top tier according to other visitors and our own experience. - This hostel is in need of some renovation in shared area. It is not bad, but some parts are ....let's say "overused" - for example old wall decoration near doors or floor. Otherwise - good value for money, mainly japanese style rooms are great.

The staffs are good in English, very helpful and cheerful. The location is good, but metro Tawaramachi station takes 10 mins walk. The one with 1 min walk is not metro station. Asakusa Shrine is about 15 mins walk from the Ryokan. The room is a bit small for 5 adults. It is better to provide a boiler in the room. There are many convenience stores, restaurants and supermarket around. However, the room we booked have serious issue about the smell from the bathroom. The ventilation fan should keep turning on, else the rotten smell will flow from the bathroom.

We stayed at their Group Room for 10. Our room is at the 6th floor. Luckily they have an elevator. Room is big and spacious. Beds are comfortable and soft. Toilet and shower rooms are shared for boys and girls. But they have a shared toilet and shower on the 5th floor for girls only. Staffs are really nice and can communicate well. Hotel have pantry, tv room, lounge. Hotel is 10-15 mins walk from Asakusa subway station. But just 2 mins walk from Asakusa Tsukuba Express station. Unfortunately, we have unlimited ride for subway station so we have to go back and forth for the subway. Reception and entrance door ia only open until 10pm. But they have a night door where you can enter after 10pm. They will provide you the pin upon checkin. All in all, it was a nice stay and will surely come back next time.

Suitable for bakpacker”

The hostel located a bit far from Tokyo subway (you have to pay an extra to get off at Asakusa Tsukuba express station). The nearest one is Tawaramachi which is 10 minutes walk. It looks brand new and clean. All staffs can speak English and be useful. One thing that bothering me is the smoking area is behind the bar and if you walk through the bar you cannot carry your own beer!!! (even I just want for a fag.)

Pretty much what you'd expect from a hostel”

Before everything, this place has both hostel dorms and Japanese-style rooms, I stayed one night at the dorms so this review only refers to that. Overall this is pretty much what you'd expect from a hostel. Has a nice common room and a large dining room (which also serves pretty much as another common room). The beds are clean and you have the key to your dorm, as well as a small private locker. Staff are friendly but English level could have been better. Located in Asakusa, it's within walking distance of Ueno and Akihabara. The nearest metro station is not very far away so it's pretty easy to get everywhere.

Okay but they charged me extra for 1 child of equivalent of the persons staying in the room. And yet NO extra bed nor extra beddings Given. Agoda says its freefor child if it will share with the bed but khadosan asakusa charged me for the extra child and no extra bed nor beddings given. I got the room for 4 persons, we are 3 adult 2 child then when we checked in, they charged the child quarter payment of the room fee times 4nights. Agoda says no extra fee when bed is shared for child. Not okay paid extra for the stay.. It came out very expensive hotel for us due to additional fee.
