Hostel with a friendly vibe
Sakura Hostel was charming and comfortable. The location is central to Sensoji Temple, and easily accessible by Tokyo Metro. I would gladly stay there again!

Literally next to Shinsoji Temple!
Great place, couldn't be happier. Location, staff, comfort, price... Very overlooked. I went to Japan alone for the first time and stayed here. They speak English, have travelers from all over the world, cheap, friendly, safe, 24hr lower level, wifi, clean bedding, single showers, tattoo friendly, great cheap breakfast... I've stayed other places since but this is still my favorite.

Great location great price great staff
The Sakura hostel is one of the best hostels I've ever had the pleasure of staying at. The staff are great and the location is amazing. You get a pretty basic dorm room and washrooms with showers on the same floor. I met many cool people in the lobby. It has a shared space where you can eat watch tv and use the internet. This place is great for anyone that just need a bed for the night.

Great location and that’s about it.
Not your typical clean Japanese hostel. Maybe you’re spoilt in Japan with hostels but this isn’t one of them. Stayed as it had good reviews and in a good area but very disappointed with the dorm rooms. Very old creeky beds and too many people in a room. The bathrooms were tiny and freezing in the winter, also not very clean. Common area was dirty (could use a new couch or two) Great location right next to the temple, safe to walk around and lots of food choices. Staff were helpful. Atmosphere was ok, but very old and cold building in winter. Lots of better choices out there for the same price or less (which I moved to) Wouldnt stay again.
