                  The front desk staff were the friendliest and nicest people as a group that I have ever encountered at a hotel in my 50 years of traveling.

                • Couple
                  9.2

                  Staff are really friendly and helpful as I have never seem before in any other country. The room was simple but very clean, beds are incredibly confortable and clean linen. Location is good as there are loads of restaurants nearby and the train station can be reached within a 2 min walk from the guest house. I absolutely reccomend it!

                • Single
                  4.6

                  1 minute walk from the stations around the hostel. Some of the staffs were very kind and helpful. Very cheap. Well equipped kitchen and a big fridge were available for all the lodgers.

                  You cannot expect the curtain around the bed to keep your privacy. There were no net on the windows (even those in the shower rooms) and I was bit by mosquitoes. The bed room was too hot to sleep but the air conditioner in the room was too noisy to leave the switch on.

                • Couple

                  Friendly staffs, free coffee and tea all day long and great location.

                  Reasonable price & convenient location

                  The room was small & difficulty in carrying the luggage up & down as we had stayed on 3rd floor.

                • Family with children
                  8.8

                  The price, location, staffs, facilities are superb.

                  5.0

                  Only location and staffs are fine.

                  Limitation of space and too less of toilets and shower rooms for guests.

                • Single
                  7.4

                  It was cheap and adequate to my needs

                  Location is quite good.

                • Group of friends
                  8.2

                  The convenience

                  The shower doors are without locks, which can be quite embarrassing when someone opened the door accidentally.

                • Group of friends
                  8.8

                  Very good for someone on a tight budget. It's in a great location, very close to subway with some nice sightseeing and shopping nearby. Lots of helpful information like maps and directions available too.

                  I personally enjoyed my stay in Khaosan Tokyo, even dought it was only one nigth. The staff is truly friendly and the place is so concurred by many backpackers that is very convenient for doing some aquaintaces and good friends ^^.

                  The bathroom is too small!

                • Single
                  8.8

                  The location is excellent. Just 2 minutes from the train station Asakusa in Tokyo. It is convenient to go back late at nigh with no much walking. Very tiny spaces like all in Japan. Internet available. Sitting in the floor is a bit uncomfortable but it is okay. They let me use the kitchen and it was nice to eat my food one night. Free tea.

                  The bathroom was super tiny. Actually they took one bathroom and dividen in two super tiny showers. The second floor stairs are very very inclined. If you are travelling with heavy bags it will be difficult. So, travel as light as possible.

                  Location and Price.

                  Compare to other hostel I have stay with similar price. The room and bathroom are small.
