Reviewed 24 June 2013

I stayed here for a night with a friend in a room that was for three people. Split between 2 people it was still reasonable. Oddly, it was set up for four (two bunk beds). It had a sitting area and a nice window. The staff were friendly and helpful. There were vending machines in the sitting area.

If you aren't from Japan, you might not expect its location (the website does provide excellent directions, which I didn't pull out of my bag - leading to 10 minutes of confusion). It is located on the 18th floor of a generic looking building. Taking the right exit from the train station saves time. Again: just follow the website directions and you'll be fine.

One good tip: try to get a room near the middle so you can get wifi. Wifi is available in the lobby/sitting area, but only extends to 2-3 rooms into the hallway.

Also: the showers are only on the 19th floor.

Overall, we were delighted by this hostel! While it isn't directly downtown, it is close, and it is easy to reach the city through the adjacent train station.

This hostel is very clean, offers very nice views, hospitable staffs that are very helpful, nicely located in kagurazaka district which is very cozy. Many local japanese stayed here and i met many wonderful people. It is a hostel after all and would be better idf the price was brought down. Definitely enjoyed my stay and shall return here.

Room tip: my only advice is to bring ear plugs as you never know what kind of room mate you ought to get, big group of kids and teenagers tend to stay there and make lots of noises as well.

The people are very nice. Hostel is within walking distance to the must sees of the city has to offer. The only problem i would say is the price. It is really expensive it Tokyo in general so i guess thats is not the main concern of the hostel. But i think it is one of the budget friendly accommodation in the city.

Tokyo central youth hostel is located at Lidabashi, Tokyo which is a really good area to stay. The nearest train station is at Lidabashi which you can access in 5 mins through the underpass. There are many eateries around this area which we have tried quite a handful and all are yummlicious. According to my japanese penpal, she mentioned is a french area.

The hostel is located on the 18th level which offers a really nice view of Tokyo. The hostel occupies 2 levels and many of the rooms are pretty spacious even for the 4 of us when we stayed there for 9 nights. The breakfast offered at the hostel is healthy and tasty at an affordable price.

The only few things that we are not too content with are the curfew timing for the closure of the building and shower. As much as we know it can be inevitable but we think it can be better arranged. Otherwise, service offered by the front desk are wonderful (except this young japanese guy who was rude which was uncalled for when we asked for some help.) The housekeeping for the room can be better since we stayed 8 nights straight. Not much housekeeping was done which made the room quite dusty.

Something to consider if you are on a budget or if you have a group of friends who you will like to have a stay with.
