Basic room. Bathrooms and the kitchen area was ok, clean enough. Close to subway station. Stayed in a dorm. Not much space but guess it's just as to be expected. Wifi is free but only available in the common area, not in rooms. Annoying that you and to be out of the hostel between 1000 and 1600. Was ok, I woudlnt personally stay again but you get what you pay for and for just a bed to sleep in, does the job.

You have to be carefull because there is a curfew at 23h 30 and you have to leave the hotel between 10:30 and 4pm. So it forces you to have a really daylife trip (bad if you like to party hard).

But if you don't mind place is good and staff easy going.

I've stayed here twice for two nights with large groups of teenage American tourists. It's located close to the Asakusa-bashi train station and in a quiet, safe part of Tokyo. It does take a bit of navigating to find it but luckily the hostel has little signs put up along the street to help guide you once you get close. The rooms are located on the 3rd and 4th floor and there is no elevator to get to them. The rooms are shared as is expected in a hostel, with futons provided. They're surprisingly comfortable if you can get used to them. The internet access at the lobby is 50¥ per hour which is really reasonable. Wifi connections are limited to five at any given time so sometimes you have to wait to log on. There are two showers for boys and girls and sometimes have strange abandoned soaps in them. There's a conference room and vending machine upstairs with a microwave, a guest book and a small TV.
If you're using this hostel as a landing pad for exploring Tokyo it's a really great and inexpensive option.

Stayed there for a week and half, and it was amazing! The staff is kind and awesome, they always try to help you if you're looking for something in Tokyo! I took the dormitory, it's clean, depending who you get to sleep in the same room as you, it can be really really noisy... I know what I'm talking about! Showers, bathroom, Kitchen are always clean! There's always hot water and tea, and the 'meeting-room/kitchen is great when you want to meet new peep's! The internet connection is way to slow.. But it's okay still.

It could be easier to find it, but still, once you got to know the way to get there, it's nice! And Tokyo is such a lovely place!

I stayed at Tokyo Sumidagawa Youth Hostel in December of 2008 with a school tour group. Located a few blocks away from Asakusa-bashi station, the hostel is easy to find, with English signs directing you through the lane ways to the building. It is in a nice, clean area and the lanes are well lit.

The building itself looks clean and has a vending machine out front. While the interior is nothing breathtaking and the bathrooms are a bit old, everything is clean and perfectly kept. You can use the computers in the ground floor sitting area for a small fee. The rooms themselves are small with barely any room to place luggage but the beds are comfortable and spacious for singles. The walk up the stairs may prove a struggle though. They are very narrow and steep and can be very challenging with a large suitcase. The floors are separated into male and female and there is a common room and kitchen on the second floor. The common showers are on the ground floors and are also male and female.

It is a good place to stay for the money and was an enjoyable experience.
