“Good for the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

I was traveling to Tokyo over the weekend of the Sumida firework festival, and there were very few places to stay in central Tokyo. This was one of the last three hostels I was able to find on the internet that had availability the entire length of my stay. The accomodations were more like a hotel than a hostel - a private room with private bath. There was also a television, water heater, and daily maid service to tidy the room. This was beyond my expectations for the price of the room. The Oak Hotel is within walking distance from the Ueno station, from which you can access the rest of the city-wide subway system.

Room Tip: Not many rooms have a view, since the hotel is set back a bit behind the main street.

Chose the Japanese Room.
Room was functional with basic amenities and wifi.

Computers available to use at the reception area, convenient and handy for us to check train timings and our next destination directions.
Staff spoke english, helpful with directions and gave us map.
Decent ramen store opposite, 15 minutes walk to Asakusa area, around 10mins to Ueno Station.
Would not come back as price is considered high for what we got.

Good location. Close to Ueno station which has excellent links to other parts of Tokyo on the JR lines and also the bullet trains for the rest of Japan. Plenty of shops and restaurants around, particularly with Asakusa nearby (15 min walk). Also good for Ueno Park with the zoo and various museums etc.

Hotel itself is clean with friendly staff. Rooms are quite small but have everything you need. Bathroom was very clean and was cleaned everyday. Showers were nice and hot. Good free wifi and use of pc's downstairs. Loads of info in reception about where to go and what to do.

Would recommend.

Oak hotel was just a 10 minute walk from Ueno station. The area has tons of restaurants and bars close by. The hotel was clean, and the people at reception friendly. The rooms were small, but that is pretty standard in Japan. Tokyo was a great city, and oak hostel is a nice place to stay.

It's close to the Ueno station about 10minutes at the most, there are plenty of coveiniance stores nearby. The staff are helpful and will help you as best they can and are all English speaking.

The rooms are quite small and the bathrooms tiny but it's Tokyo so unless you want to pay sky high prices get used to it. The rooms are clean, air conditioned and get cleaned everyday with new towels being dropped.

Overall a present stay and I would stay again for sure.

Very clean and well kept. Towels a plenty and private bathrooms. Really liked this place compared to other hostels visited. Didn't see the staff that much but any questions we had were answered, so helpful all in all. Only downside is the second floor Internet didn't work, but we just used the lobby Wifi.
Would highly recommend for the price, incredibly close to a subway that brings you to some of the most amazing places in Tokyo.
Price paid was about $80 Canadian for private room, double size bed. Occupancy of two.

This is our third stay at the Oak Hotel and we are always grateful for their helpful staff and clean rooms. Small the rooms may be (this is Japan!) but they are cleaned every morning so it's always nice to return to fresh sheets and a tidy bathroom.

The staff speak excellent English are very helpful and offer good suggestions on eating and exploring.

A good location within 8 mins walk of the large Ueno station, lots to explore, even around the hotel. Easy access to other parts of Tokyo. Wonderful park just behind the Ueno station with very good art galleries, street entertainers and lovely shaded walks.

Guess where we will be staying on our next visit?
