Tokyo central youth hostel is located at Lidabashi, Tokyo which is a really good area to stay. The nearest train station is at Lidabashi which you can access in 5 mins through the underpass. There are many eateries around this area which we have tried quite a handful and all are yummlicious. According to my japanese penpal, she mentioned is...

Family of three stayed in the hostel for three nights in December. It's right next to the train station. We had a great city view from the room. It looked like every room has nice view as the hostel is up on the high floors. Staff were all very friendly and helped us with directions and etc. Hostel has a...

I have stayed in many hostels and this one is good for large groups i imagine. but did not suit us as a couple. The bathrooms are only allowed to be used at certain times, am and pm. The kitchen also has restricted time when they can be used. Bathrooms only on the top floor so you have to go...

We booked a triple private room rather than dormitory as I was travelling with my brother and 16yo son. There is a curfew at this hostel because it is in a Govt building on the 18th and 19th floors only and similar accommodation in this price range is possible at chain style hotels where you get your own bathroom/towel/toiletries. It's...

There's a curfew at night and you can only shower during the specified times, but overall it's a decent stay. If you get back past the curfew, you can still get in, but will have to call and wait for the person to come get you. Bed's a bit hard but relatively comfy. The room we had had 2 bunk...

Very good hostel, with very helpful staff members who speak a brilliant level of English. As there were three of us we had a dorm room to ourselves, which was great. The views of the sunset at night were gorgous. Beds were comfortable.There is a curfew, but that was out of their hands as it is a government building. This...

The dorm beds were solid & clean,we liked the secured door lock & locker provided is convenient & big enough for trolley bags. There are metro station(Lidabashi) and at least 3major subway lines on level B1. Food & basic amenities can be bought at the complex on ground floor. The reception spoke excellent English & the hostel provides a lot...

Neighbourhood Profile
Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this day, and there are long-standing restaurants with geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
