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.
It is very convenient!”
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.
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.

Fantastic location and staff”
In Asakusa which is a really great place to stay. So much to do and see here and easy to get everywhere by the metro. Super helpful staff, comfy beds in own room, option for breakfast and you can cook your own food in the kitchen. Little bit dated facilities such as showers but v comfortable overall and safe

Good location, good price, friendly staffs.... ...
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.
good location, comfy bed and helpful staff”
I booked 6 bed bedroom for 4 adults and 2 childs (aged 8 and 11). the bed were really comfy with thick blanket that that i loved the most. the toilet are very clean. there are laundromat and kitchen at level 1 (just beside the receiptionist) that u can used by sharing with others. the hostel location are very good because it is closed to sensoji temple, nakamise street and also subway station.
Dear Lyly Thank you so much for your high ratting thank you so much again for having stayed at Sakura Hostel Asakusa this time. As you said, our hostel is all guest rooms are shared bathroom and toilets outside the rooms. our hostel near to Senso-ji temple for 5-min by walk. And there is very famous street called Nakamise street from in front of Senso-ji temple to Raimon (big red lanthanum). You can buy the Japanese souvenir and you can feel the old japanese culture here. Our hostels very convenient to access to Senso-ji temple and center of Tokyo! Thank you so much for review. we are looking forward to seeing you.
Recommend this hostel”
I am always using this hostel when I come back to Japan because I rent my apartment other Japanese person. This hostel stuffs are very friendly and most trust people any other worlds hostel because we are Japanese. Hotel shower power is perfect, we can change the sheet anytime. They have a kitchen , so we can cooking anytime. If you have a questions, they can answer as much as they knew the knowledge . Inside is little bit old, but very convenience places. You don’t need worried about anything about Japan. We have anythings included 24 hours supermarket and souvenir shopand convenience shop etc... if you are sick in bed, we have English Hospital as well. Please visit Japan once!
Dear Yuko san Thank you so much for your good review, your staying, choosing every time at our hostel. We hope to meet again soon at here. Thank you so much again.
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.
Could not be better”
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.
Thank you very much for your awesome review! It is our pleasure to know that you enjoyed your stays at our hostel. We'll be really happy if you could visit us again on your next trip to Tokyo.
Best for Solo travel”
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.
Good value for money”
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.
Nice hostel and near to the tourist attraction”
Is a nice hostel and very near to the tourist attraction places, eg. Asakusa shrine and pagoda. the hostel also is near to the train station is about 5 minutes walk. if you need privacy please opt for single or couple room.
Pleasantly surprised - great place”
the location is great. close to the train stations, the sensoji temple and all its glory .. and stalls selling food and trinkets. ample shopping, from supermarkets, to the 24hr convenience stores, a macd outlet, daiso store.. the works. our fav was the 24hr bento takeaway around the corner ... ... really good value ... just bring it back to the hostel and microwave it. facilities were excellent. free internet terminals and wifi access on the ground floor lobby. clean, impressively clean ! the shared toilets/baths were not only clean but always dry ! rooms were basic, but clean and comfortable. staff were very friendly and helpful. will definitely come back.
Good location, near Sensoji Temple”
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. No towels, toothbrush, etc provided so you have to bring your own. They have a small pantry where guests can hang out and a mini sofa with TV and gaming console. Pretty much it was a good stay.
Dear Jen Thank you so much for review. As you said, our hostel near to Senso-ji temple for 5-min by walk from our hostel. You can rent a towels (100yen) and you can buy a toothbrush (50yen) as well at our front desk. We prepare PS3, SFC at our common space and you can play these games! Thank you so much for staying with us. We are looking forward to seeing you
The hostel is situated much nearer to Asakusa (Tsukuba) Station compared to Asakusa Station (for Ginza and Asakusa line), but both the stations are within walking distance. The staffs are friendly, helpful and English speaking. They do provide luggage storage services for free at the basement floor. We stayed in a room with 2 bunk beds. The rooms are quite spacious. However, the only minus point is that the room is quite dusty. Further, they do have laundry and dryer services at a reasonable price per usage. However, we need to heat the wet clothes for about 3 times to dry the clothes. Overall, it was a reasonable stay. We get to view Tokyo Skytree from our room.
Dear Lee Thank you so much for staying with us Sakura Hostel Asakusa. We are very sorry for the incomvenient. We are going to clean the guest rooms, toilets, everyday. And our laundry: washer 200 yen(40minutes) , Dryer 100yen(15minutes). coin-operated washing machines and dryers are available on the 1st floor. Free washing powder provide. We are waiting for you to come back to our hostel someday. Thank you.
Good location, but okay”
Pros: Located in central Asakusa and pretty close to Sensoji Temple. A lot of shop, restaurant, and convini around. Comfy bed. The staffs seem nice (I didn't interacted a lot, though) and speak good english. Cons: Most of the rooms are clean, but look old and rusty. Small shower room. Bed's power socket is under the bed's light. It's not easy to plug the cord with power converter because it's gonna fall. Noisy at common room, though they have the regulation not to be loud after 10 pm. But that night, some teenage choir group were really loud (maybe due to celebrate something after winning some competition). And staff didn't do anything
Dear Laily Thank you so much for staying with us at the Sakura Hostel Asakusa this time. But we are very sorry for the incomvenient. We do it the best. We do hope that you will consider us for your next visit to Japan, and wish you a good day ahead.Thank you so much for review us.
