    When I go to Tokyo, I always look for a place in Asakusa. They’ve got it all for you. It’s very accessible to several train lines. It’s near Senso-ji temple, stores, and restaurants. The place is very minimalist and functional. It provides basic amenities and gives off a friendly atmosphere. Overall, this is a good place to stay and meet fellow travellers.

    A nice hostel in Asakusa neighborhood.”

    This hostel is located in the westside of Senso-ji Asakusa Temple, one of the famous temple in Tokyo. Only takes about 5 minutes walking to Senso-ji and 10 minutes walking to the Asakusa subway station. There were two bunk beds in our room. This hostel provides shared bathrooms.

    Great value, Great People”

    Sakura Hostel Asakusa was one of the best hostels I’ve visited in a while. My brother and I stayed in a twin bunk room. The location was superb, the rooms were clean and the perfect size for us. The view was so lovely and unexpected. We couldn’t figure out the heating system, so it was a bit cold at night (but that was completely on us for being too tired to ask), haha. We could see the Hanayashiki amusement park, the Senso-ji Buddhist temple, and the Tokyo Skytree all from our little room terrace. The shared floor bathrooms were clean and warm — they were never busy. The staff was exceptional and super helpful and always there to help and recommend things to us. The common area was busy and vibrant and had a lot amenities for the guests. They also offer cool events inside the hostel, too. The location was decent — every station or stop we needed was 5-15 minutes of a walk away. The neighborhood is quiet and quaint. I would highly recommend this accommodation.

    Good location for visiting this area, however the toilet is located far apart from the rooms as the design for hostel of the building structure is like this. If you don’t mind the toilet far away from the room then this place is fine. But remember from the room to toilet is so called out door walk way, pretty chill when wind blown.

    Certainly a budget option, but helpful staff & a great location. Be aware that breakfast is toast with margarine, and soup which is not always vegetarian. Both the reception and laundry facilities are open 24h which is very convenient, however, the atmosphere leaves much to be desired.

    Everything is perfect. I like its kitchen, staff. Very close to Sensoji temple. There are so many shops in surroundings. You should buy 72 hours metro ticket for 1500 yens at the hotel reception ( can not buy it at metro station). Surely I will stay there if I come back to Tokyo. Highly recommended. Perfect location. Easy to take train from Haneda airport to the hostel and vice versa.

    Great place for solo travel, with the 24 hours reception you doesn't need to worry when you reach. However location is abit far from train station. The beds have curtains so there are privacy and also a power plug. The only downside I feel is that the locker is too small.

    It is manned 24 hrs which means you have help at any time of the day.

    Our flight touched down around 10.30pm and by the time we made our way to the hostel, it was close to midnight. It was great that it was open 24 hours which allowed us to check in with ease. We were able to jump into bed almost immediately. Although we only stayed one night, it was nevertheless good value for money. Most importantly, the staff could converse fluently in English.

    The hostel is very close to Sensoji Temple. It is about 15 mins walk from Asakusa Station or 10 mins via Tawaramachi Station. The room is very small but decent.
