Note that there are limited elevators at the JR Asakusabashi station. Walking from here to this hostel might not be easy with luggages. The hostel's web site provides good direction how to get there from the JR station. The Narita airport trains will make a stop at this station if you arrive before 4pm. Otherwise, you have to transfer at Aoto station to Asakusabashi.

Good, helpful, friendly staff. The location is very handy for the subway. However, if you want a good night's sleep look elsewhere. Some of the guests think this is 24-hour party land. Far too much noise right through the day and into the early hours in spite of the efforts of the staff.

晚上沒有門禁,12點後回旅館也可以洗澡,設備齊全,附近有超市能去買材料自己做,一個人自助旅行很適合,可以很少花費地在東京生活。

This is a hostel with traditional Japanese design and decorations. The staff there speak english very well, so no problem in communication. Toilets, bathroom as well as bedroom are neat and tidy. Curtain is provided for creating your private zone. For the location, it is close to the mtr station(asakusabashi) and not far from the tourist spot like asakusa. It is convenient for sightseeing.

"Very accommodating hostel"
05/16/15 Seth B B Bishops Stortford
This hostel was my first to experience in Japan and lives up to the high standard set in this wonderful country. Rooms are small and beds are crammed in, but that is to be expected within the metropolis that is Tokyo. Eggs and toast breakfast is included in the price which is very reasonable and was the only hostel over a two week trip to offer this. Bathrooms were impeccably clean and there was plenty of info on Tokyo which meant that people (such as myself) who hadn't done much research, found it easy to navigate the tourist attractions. A solid choice in Tokyo!

"Moderately good stay"
05/15/15 nam_gypseagal Bengaluru (Bangalore), India
We stayed here for 3 nights when we arrived in Tokyo. This place is very well located, close to the Metro station and is near the main road. However, in terms of directions, do make sure to take a screenshot of your map when you arrive since we found it difficult to spot the "Chinese restaurant" at a corner in the night, having no access to Wi-Fi or a local SIM on our first night in Japan. The staff service is good, breakfast is a humble bread-jam-egg-coffee affair and the little common areas are very welcoming to hang out in. Though slightly more compact in terms of common areas like the staircase and lift, this hostel is a good option to stay for a couple of nights. They also have the usual facilities like rental for some commonly used products, internet on shared desktops, brochures about popular places/events and vending machines in the kitchen. Overall, a decent bet for a moderately comfortable hostel experience in this side of the city.

"Anne Hostel Tokyo May 2014"

Loved it there! The staff was amazing and it was nice to have breakfast included even if it was just toast and boiled eggs. The staff also answered your questions and you could get info from there too. The location was nice, close to subway and yet it wasn't right next to all the noice so you can sleep in peace. The rooms were nice and clean. You have tour own locker where you can keep your money etc. Air conditioner in the room was good, especially during the summer when its really hot. In the lounge you can watch TV, eat or just hang out. There's also a vending machine where you can get sodas, ice teas and alcohols.

"Good location, staff could be better"
05/04/15 aoife_ob Dublin
Overall I liked this hostel - it was the first place I stayed in Japan. Before getting to Tokyo I was at a loss about where to stay. I booked 2 nights and then emailed them to extend it, with no problem. This location is ideal, near the subway and the JR (Japan Rail) station - another type of metro line. It's really easy to find the hostel, but check-in is not til 4pm, which was a bummer after a really long flight! found it easy to meet people in the common area, but there were also some big groups which was a bit intimidating. Breakfast was included, a real bonus in Japan! There were also lots of restaurants nearby. One of the downsides was that I asked a member of staff to call a hostel in Kyoto on my behalf, she refused and told me there is a payphone downstairs that I could use. When I said I don't speak Japanese, she said it's a hostel, so they probably speak English. I stayed at the sister hostel at the end of my trip, and really enjoyed that!

"Perfect base for exploring Tokyo!"
04/29/15 IngeCvC The Hague, The Netherlands
We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Tokyo. Easy to get to, only a short walk from the station and with directions from their website and confirmation email it wasn't too hard to find. It's easy to get around the city from here. Friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in a 12 bed dorm. Not much floor space, but with a shelf, personal light and power point and curtains around the bed you have plenty of personal space. Lockers are in the hallway outside the room, so easy to store your stuff safely. A few extra showers would be good to allow for the morning rush, but other than that bathrooms and toilets are fine. I would stay here again.

"Pleasant stay"
04/27/15 RyanNZ170 Auckland, New Zealand
I stayed here for 7 nights during March and April 2015. I came for the cherry blossom season and had a great time. Stayed in one of the mixed dorms. Bathroom facilities were adequate but mattress was a little thin. Self-made breakfast and wifi was included in my nightly rate. Staff were really helpful when it came to any questions I had about getting around Tokyo. Hostel was less than 10mins walk to Asakusabashi Station which linked to Akihabara Station and the Yamanote Line. There is also a hospital nearby and plenty of places to eat.

"Free brekkie but hard bed"
04/22/15 cleriswong
I stayed here in January during my visit to Tokyo. Had some difficulties finding this hostel as it is located on a small street (I don't have the best sense of direction though). If you do get the directions right, it is very near to the train stations. You will take the elevator to go to the reception upstairs. Free breakfast is provided even though I did not eat any of it - toast & eggs. This hostel seems to attract many Australians as I encountered many Australians in here. Mattress is definitely hard/thin and can be uncomfortable. I met two other guys who couldn't sleep for 2 nights because of the bed. The room was a little small for a 4 person room comparing to other hostels I have stayed but it's not too bad :) There's personal reading light on the bed. Linens are clean. Toilets are clean too. The service was good and staff members were nice. The hostel is located in a quiet area. Overall I would say I had a good time here but the bed wasn't the most comfortable.

"good hostel"
04/17/15 Earn_Chutikarn Chiang Mai, Thailand
The location is good: nearby Asakusabashi station(3-5 min by walk). Around with restaurant, Minimart. The room is small but clean. Bathroom is very clean(Same as other hostel in Japan, Everything in Japan are very tidy and clean.) The service is good.

"Loud, noisy and smelly"
03/28/15 Helen V Hanoi, Vietnam
Staff was really nice, but even so: I would NOT recommend this hostel: price and location does not warrant the fact for following description: unfortunately -when you see pictures of spacious room on hostelbookers and ending up in a cramped smelly room (mouldy!) - I was really disappointed after 4 nights without being able to sleep due to noise. No solution was offered although another (bigger and without mould) room came available after 2 nights. the walls were really thin, my room was near kitchen and common room, but even conversations of neighbours in next room were as if they were standing in our room. there were set of rules, but staff did not intervene in several cases (like cooking at 23.00 hrs which was even more loud and smelly. Drunken backpackers arriving home at 05.00 were left by nightwatch, so we had to try to solve it ourselves (which involved some cursing) The picture of bathroom on website is not on 4th floor, were you had to be careful: the showerdoor was blocked by the door to toilet By the way: the hostel has no emergency exit which makes it in case of fire dangerous since lot of plywood is used and stairways are narrow.

"Good, clean Tokyo hostel with more space than average"
03/27/15 aclar33 New Orleans, Louisiana
Of the hostels and hotel I have stayed at in Japan, this one is superior in regard to the space it provides. There is a full kitchen to use, a common area, and non-capsule bunks. They have free breakfast, which is a rarity around the city. Good location - right next to the train line (only one transfer if you are coming in from the airport). They were entirely booked the night I stayed there and we were all still comfortable.
