"Was worth what I paid"
I spent several days in Tokyo at the bakpak hostel. It was a comfortable stay with fairly average amenities. It was clean and bug free which are my most important requirements. They offer special options such as a sumo tour. I had signed up for that, but unfortunately someone made a mistake and it was canceled. A special note is that the showers do have tubs if you want to soak and there is no one waiting.

"It's all about the people"
The hostel is a little confusing to get to from the stations. Even after being there a couple of days and being seasoned travellers in Japan we still had to think really hard about which way to go (it depends on the exit you use and the exits are not named). We were given a map which showed local attractions etc but it didn't help much near the stations and was in English which helped up but not people we stopped to ask. The onlg other comment was that the doonas were a little grubby - sheets, rooms and everything else were great but the doonas/covers could have done with some sprucing up. I think the fact that sheets etc were so good made the doonas look worse than they actually were. The people at the hostel were fabulous! They offer fish market and sumo training tours at a reasonable price and were flexible enough to accommodate my travel buddy's physical inability to ride a pushbike. The tours were absolutely brilliant and I can't recommend them highly enough. Daisuke (our tour guide - usually called "Dice") was fantastic. His explanations and patience really made our stay enjoyable.

"Value for money"
Very spacious private room. Decorating a little old but not a concern for me when travelling. Great stay over all. Staff was friendly and highly recommend doing tours offered. Great tour guide and he spoke great English. Bike hire very reasonable at ¥500/day and really enjoyable way to get to know the city. Better direction is needed to the laundry as we could not find it after hours and had to wait til morning. Laundry was located outside down the side of hostel but did the job. Value for money

This hostel is great. It may not be as modern as some, but its kept in good condition and has everything you need. The staff here are really lovely and because of this, it is my favourite hostel I have ever stayed at. If you want to feel at home, meet some great people and have a relaxing drink out the front till the early hours of the morning then this is the place for you. Lovely people x

Very nice hostel considering the price. The staff was friendly and we had no problems checking in or out. The location could have been better but it wasn't bad. A 20 minute walk to get to Uguisudani Station which wasn't really a problem and besides that there's also some convinience stores nearby and that was definitely a plus!

"融入住宅區的生活"
會在三之輪站下車的旅客,似乎多半是這家飯店的預訂者,不妨結伴而行。附近是相當平靜的住宅區,車站旁有超市可以採購,加上旅館內有廚房能自炊,器材幾乎一應俱全。此次被升級到六人房,不了解十人房是否同樣優質,但似乎每個房間都是獨立的小套房,進入玄關後,再分別通往廁所、浴室跟寢室,盥洗不會打攪到室友,整理東西能利用玄關,吃東西可以去廚房的餐廳或旁邊榻榻米客廳。除房間有電視外,交流客廳也有,還備有各種影片和足部按摩機等等,可打發、放鬆、消磨休息的時間,非常不錯。

從三之輪站去到需時約十分鐘,並不算十分近,看門牌號碼會比較方便。但附近有24hr超市,神社。房間,洗手間,浴室整潔。床為上中下鋪三人床,因不能自由選擇床鋪位置,所以有需要指定床鋪可試試提出要求。職員友善,可以英文溝通。

We stayed four nights at the hostel, in a room for three people. It's located near Minowa underground station (5 min walk) and we found it really tidy and comfortable. The person in the reception (Daiske) is the most helpful one could find, he gave us good recommendations on places to see and took us to a fish market out of the touristy tipical route. Definitely we would all recommend this hostel. Thank you!

Bad location, in a residential area with nothing at all in the vicinity, and a long, say 10 minutes, tedious walk to the subway. Damp and stuffy in the room even with the AC on. Lots of small cockroaches in the shower every day, even killed a huge one in the bedroom. Despite all that I think the biggest downside is the location, even if you're just sleeping there, going out in the morning and coming back the evening was pretty depressing.

"Nase zu und durch"
Ich bin eigentlich ein Fan von Asakusa, aber man läuft so gute 20 Minuten, bis man mal da ist. Das Hostel an sich ist okay, die Leute die dort arbeiten waren leider nicht so übermässig freundlich und es hat irgendwie nach alten, schweissigen Trunschuhen gerochen, im oberen Bereicn (in dem sich mein Bett befunden hat). Wohnbereich war ganz nett mit Massagestuhl und küche und einer Playstation. Nur zum Schlafen ist es also in Ordnung.

房間和浴室都很乾淨,床是三層床所以很窄,整間樓只有一間浴室可以用,但是我住的時候房客似乎不多因此沒有感受到不便。洗衣機要200yen,烘乾再加100yen,無線網路不是隨時都很穩偶爾會斷一下。剛好座落在入谷站和三之輪站的中間,要去哪一站都要走個10分鐘左右。沒有什麼特別友善的氣氛,但如果只是要找個舒服的便宜的過夜場所,這邊很ok,沒什麼好挑剔的

The staff is extremly friendly and allways tries to help despite English diffficulties. The place is slightly run down, but they keep the rooms extremly clean. We watched them clean the beds and they even disinfected it. Also the overall admospheare is great and it was more than easy to get to know people. They were very understanding to any complaints aswell. Good place, I'd definetly stay there again.

06/02/15 f R Leigh-on Sea, United Kingdom
we've been travelling japan for a month now and this is the worst place we stayed by japan standard and value for money. We've travelled philippines for a long time so we are experienced with hostels. It's way too expensive for it's LOCATION, I mean it's literally dead around there and a good 5 minute walk to the station which also costs money and is no where near all the buzz. The room was "smoke free" but stank of smoke and the carpet was very dirty too. There are other hostels in Tokyo cheaper or the same price that are great in location and hygiene. I don't mind a bad hostel if it's cheap but this wasn't an I would never stay here again. The price is simply too high for where it is and it smells like smoke!

05/22/15 4ChanK Bangkok, Thailand
Located about half a km from Minowa subway,just walked straight through 5 light traffics and in walking distance from iconic Senso-ji Temple in Asakusa. It's a multi-floor old building,with old decoration. We stayed in triple-bed room,once entering,unpleasant smell touched our noses. The Room was small and the bathroom was even very small,with just mini-refrigerator, tea bags and set. However,Staff was nice,helpful and smiley. No breakfast with our room type.

I wasn't sure how this place would be as I was booking so last minute and it was all that was available at a good price, but I had a very comfortable stay! It is not far from Minowa subway and if you ask for a map at the station very easy to find, owner was friendly and has good basic English, the dorms are what you would expect for this price with b just what you need and lockers are provided. Only bad thing was I felt very cold the first night but then o found out they supply the rooms with extra fluffy blankets :)

03/12/15 TalanClover Los Angeles, California
First off, the owner is awesome! Nice guy, and gave me a discount without me asking, because the only room left was a single. The price was about 20 USD. The beds are hard, but it's Japan. Bathrooms and room was clean to the naked eye. The living room/kitchen area was nice. My room came with a TV and there was a DVD selection. Free computers use downstairs, decent computers. Ok location. Friendly staff, close to the subway. DO NOT use their map on their web site, it got me lost and locals in the area said the map was not well represented. Other than that, good hostel.

Only stayed two nights, room was well equipped & comfortable, a little dated but that's not on our priority list. Very central to Minowa station. We booked a visit to view sumo wrestling training at a local stable, we were escorted by Daisuke, from Bakpakl Hostel, on bicycles which was very refreshing at 8am. The training was mesmerising & intense, we enjoyed a light breakfast after with Daisuke giving us Japanese lessons & general local information. We then enjoyed the bicycles for the rest of the day & moved on with regret that we weren't staying longer here

This place is good for people looking to find a place to stay in Tokyo on a budget. It has amenities such as a common area kitchen, hot private showers, computer lounge, and a smoking area. We booked a room for two and since this was not the room we booked (didn't have a bathroom) so I was given a 10% discount, which was really cool of them. The taller gentleman speaks good English. And ausyska is a 15 min walk and minowa station is a 5 min walk. Overall I'm satisfied and would stay here again.
