Budget travellers have a new accommodation option in Bakurocho with the October 2015 opening of this hostel that also houses a ground-floor cooking space. The latter's no ordinary kitchen, either: equipped with a traditional-style sunken hearth (irori), it allows for comfy and decidedly novel cooking sessions even with larger groups. The dorms, which come in both mixed and women-only versions, are found on floors two to six and are sparingly decorated but clean and convenient. The final point worth noting is the excellent accessibility: there are direct trains to Narita from nearby Higashi-Nihonbashi Station on the Asakusa line.
