I love this Ryokan and have been there twice. It is very clean and the price is more than reasonable, besides being situated very close to the metro Assakusa. The shared rooms are cozy and comfortable. It has a kitchen and bathroom for communal use. I recommend it 100%. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to write me.
Perhaps the best hostel in Tokyo, valued both by guides and travelers commenting on Hostelworld as one of the best hostels in Asia. It's location is very close to the subway and the downtown JR stations- Ueno Station and Tokyo Station. It has rooms for about 24 euros including a bedroom and living room. The living room is very nice, with tatami. There is wifi in the hostel. It has great staff and is a great place for backpackers and travelers
The Tokyo trip was great! the first night it started raining and even with the fog I managed to get this photo of the Asakusa Temple with the Tokyo Sky View in the background without a tripod! :-) This particular place at Sakura Hostel where you're treated well and the quality - price ratio is, as they say, good, nice and cheap: D
Japan is an expensive country, and space is severely limited. A bed can cost a fortune. This hostel has a great location in Asakusa, one of the best neighbourhoods in Tokyo, near several tourist attractions as well as the subway. The hostel is large, clean and modern, with a kitchen, meeting rooms ... but what really makes it stand out is the staff. Helpful and friendly, they take a genuine interest in guests. When it's time to pay, they'll give you a personalised note with your name and a few words in your language, as well as some Japanese candy. They promote different activities, like hiking. Some are free, others have a small fee. One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in, and one of my happiest memories of Tokyo.
The Ace Inn Shinjuku will be sure to put you at ease. The staff speak English, and are friendly, providing you with all the information about the area that you could ask for. It's a 10-story tower just one or two stops from Central Station in Shinjuku, one of the liveliest districts in Tokyo (if you miss the train, it's a 20-25 minute walk). It's somewhere between a capsule hotel and a hostel, mixing the best of the two. The capsules are made of wood, similar to the berths of a ship: spacious, comfortable, and a world apart from the drawers of a typical capsule hotel. The cleanliness is outstanding. There are two types: economy in in a shared room (about 20 euro per night) or luxury (about 35 euro per night) with a little space and privacy. There's a casual atmosphere with a lively common room, and the hotel organises activities (Japanese conversation classes for beginners, walking tours, etc) for the younger crowd. Highly recommended. Directions: From the station Akebonobashi Toei Shinjuku Line, take the exit A2, turn left and you will find it on the left after a few hundred metres.
