Located a bit off the centre (but close to a metro-station and shops) this hostel offers spacious dorms (each bed with locker and lamp plus curtain), a kitchen, common-area, enough bathrooms and showers and stable/fast wifi. The staff is friendly and helpful. Security is good....More

I chose this place because the wonderful hostel I'd stayed in on my last visit to Tokyo had closed, and the other HI hostels were booked out. Rather than lug my suitcase from the subway station, I caught a taxi from Akihabara, but even my...More

We got off at the Asakusabashi station and headed to look for the hostel. The time was around 11pm which was 1 hour before the check-in time ended. However, we couldn't find the hostel for the one hour. We walked east, west, north, and south...More

Tokyo Sumidagawa Youth Hostel is set in a residential area of the old downtown region of Tokyo, giving guests an authentic feel of living in Tokyo. With easy access from both international airports and the main More attractions, it makes for the ideal city getaway. The friendly, helpful staff will make you feel welcome and you can enjoy this cosy Japanese-style hostel complete with 'tatami' rooms. After you have used the facilities, including internet access and TV room, it’s time to start exploring the sights. Akihabara Electric Town, Asakusa temple and Ryougoku Sumo Hall are within walking distance, and from the nearest station you can get to places like Shinjuku, Shibuya, Tokyo Big Site, Tokyo Disney Resort and Kamakura. You can even organise a one day trip to Nikko, Hakone or Mount Fuji area and if you arrive in late July don’t forget to watch the fantastic Sumidagawa Fireworks Festival. Less

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
