    Don't follow the directions given on the site, poorly communicated. The owner is a nice guy, he gave me 10usd off a night. Nice outside area to hang out at, clean rooms, with TV and DVD selection. Living room and bathroom.

    I do not recommend this hostel for the fact that the toilets and bathrooms were both very dirty. The toilet was so bad that I couldn't use it for the first day (had to find a park toilet to use). When I complained, it was...More

    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
