Khaosan Tokyo Kabuki
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Other Tokyo backpacker hostels should probably start taking notes. Khaosan Tokyo Kabuki has an enviable location – just around the corner from the imposing Kanarimon gate in central Asakusa – but it's the attention to detail that sets it apart from many of its competitors. Even the dorms have their own ensuite shower and toilet; there's free WiFi in every room; they actually have a lift; the common room stays open 24 hours a day; and there's free luggage storage during the daytime if you need to dump your bags while you go sightseeing. If you're a sucker for Japanese-style touches, you'll probably appreciate the red, green and black colour scheme (kabuki's traditional colours), as well as the option to sleep in a tatami-floored room. Dorms cost ¥3,000, while twins and doubles are ¥3,400 per person.
