Tokyo is pretty hot for hostels, but our pick is Khaosan World Asakusa in Taito-ku. The surreal meets sci-fi décor is vibrant, the staff über helpful (9.0 customer rating…oh snap!) and you get free hot drinks and toiletries. And did we mention this hostel has a see-through bathtub?! #Japan #tokyo #hostel
This is it, the king of Japanese guesthouses! This guesthouse/youth hostel is a part of the Khaosan group that has established guest houses in Asakusa, Kyoto, Fukuoka, and other places. It’s well priced, clean, and boast capsule-type cabin bedrooms. There is a common area where customers from many countries can meet and chat, and it’s got a friendly atmosphere.
Old private houses are so comfortable! This has a veranda and gardens, so it feels warm like a home in the countryside. At night, the living room entrance becomes a bar, and even people who aren’t lodging there can enjoy mingling freely.
This comfortable space is an old private house renovated around the concept of “a place that goes beyond all boundaries where people can gather.”
