Sakura Hostel Asakusa
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Tokyo's largest backpacker hostel is as functional as you would expect. Fluent English speakers dispense tourist information 24 hours a day at the reception desk, and the early check-in (from 1pm) and late check-out times make it convenient for most travellers' schedules. The common kitchen area and 24-hour bar and café bring a little sense of community to what's otherwise a slightly impersonal (though scrupulously clean) facility, with a choice of dorms (¥2,940), twins (¥8,295) and group rooms that can sleep up to eight people. The hostel sits opposite Asakusa's creaky old Hanayashiki amusement park, a good 10 minutes' walk from the subway station.
