This hostel always welcomes me super friendly. Room is not so big, but still I can have a private single room with reasonable price. And the staffs are always helpful. Now their big bathroom is renewed. Singing loud in this bath made me so refreshed.

The New Koyo hotel is located in a very quiet and residential area, well connected to the rest of the city by JR and subway, but with nothing around. Apart a 7/11 and some small restaurants it is not a place with things to do. The structure itself is quite old. You will have a room with futon, and common...

The people that own and run the place are so lovely. They spoke really good English and really went out of the way to be helpful. The hostel is in Minami Senju, which is quiet an industrial area, however you are a five minute walk from the train station. You get your own room for the price of a bunk...

simple, good price, perfect location for sightseeing, clean rooms, toilets so-so, you do not pay additionally for shower (what may happen in Japan) but if you are there as a traveller you do not need luxury. very kind staff, speaking multi-languages and good english! (which is not typical there). traditional beds futons very convenient. safe place to stay. no bugs!

Stayed here one night as a stopover enroute to other Japan destinations. The Pros: - you get your own room for the same price as a bunk bed elsewhere - walking distance to the Minami-Senju JR station. We walked with our packs on our backs with no problem - showers have excellent water pressure and have soap/shampoo The Cons: -...

It was good to get privacy for the price. Minami-Senju is the closest station which is a bit out of the way for the rest of Tokyo. Bit of a sketchy area it seemed, close to the Skytree and Asakusa area. Walls are paper thin so you could hear everything going on in the hallways, I could hear chairs moving...

Its all basic. - Its around 10 min walk from Minami Senju station. Its quite far. Although, if you are fond of walking, from the nearest 7-11, it is a 20 minute walk to Sumida River park, 30 mins if you wish to go Sensoji temple or Tokyo Skytree - The best thing about this place is privacy. You pay...

The most appealing feature of this hostel aside from it being the cheapest in Tokyo is that you get your own privacy even if you are travelling alone. You get your own room although the bathroom is still shared of course. The room varies on either western or japanese style bed. You get a locker and a tv inside your...

Stayed here for 1 night before heading to Saitama to visit my friend. At this price, I don't expect a suite with a sea view. Everything was very basic. Room was very tiny, noisy and I even had a couple of roaches for company at night. However, the hotel grounds were reasonably clean and the staff are very polite. There's...

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
