We are heading to Tokyo for 4-5 days and I would like to hear from anyone who has stayed at an awesome hostel. I have looked at hostelworld.com and hostelbookers.com but have not found the right place just yet. Any advice appreciated. Thank you

    Good question. I don't know whether you could ever find the "best" hostel in a city the size of Tokyo, but a tip I will offer is to ensure that the hostel doesn't have a curfew. I checked into a hostel in Tokyo once that didn't clearly advertise it, only to be told that they locked the doors at 10pm and opened them at 6am! over 7 years ago

    I agree with Ian. I have stayed at the Sakura in Jimbocho 5 times now in the past few years. It's convenient (5-10 min walk to Tokyo Metro Hanzomon Line, Shinjuku Line & Mita Linean) this location is pretty inexpensive for Japan and it's open 24 hours (no lock outs). The staff is very helpful, they have a self serve laundry, it's clean and there's small area in the lobby that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. (simple food but good if you are jet lagged)
    If you are looking to upgrade and be in central tokyo i recommend the Dai-ichi Hotel Annex (not to be confused with the Dai-ichi Hotel next door which is more expensive)

    I highly recommend Tokyo bnb ( http://tokyobnb.com ). It's a newly open 3bedroom house in the perfect Tokyo downtown location of Roppongi. Much much more convenient than asakusa. The rooms are new, clean and uniquely decorated with Japanese arts. Because of small number of rooms every guest can relax and enjoy their stays. Their rates are also highly competitive. The bnb is run by a friendly and helpful Thai lady who is ready to help you with any question you have about 7 years ago
