Free breakfast! Cheap and comfortable hostel
Good value for money hostel. The free breakfast was a nice touch and we appreciated the bread provided which we could toast and have with margarine, chocolate sauce or jam. As it was raining the hostel also allowed us to borrow umbrellas and leave our luggage after checkout to explore the area

Friendly and pleasant budget hostel
Nice friendly staff. We - my son and me - stayed for 4 nights, We slept in the dormitory. Beds are ok. Pillows a bit too firm however difficult to have a goodnight sleep as new people were either arriving very late at night or left very early. Although they were careful not to make too much noise, my sleep was regularly broken up by the packing and unpacking of luggage etc. Great breakfast but can be busy at times in the morning. Bathroom and showers clean. Great location in Asakusa with shops , restaurant, shrines. Good transport possibilities to central Tokyo. Not far from Skytree and Ueno. Overall we enjoyed our stay at Khaosan and would come back but in private rooms this time.

Good for the $, front staff could be more helpful
Location is great, the facilities are decently clean for what it is, but the front desk staff seemed less than helpful. Even when speaking in Japanese, the front desk lady was confused when we asked to add our post cards to the hotel's outgoing mail and would not help call a cab. We figured it all out, but it would have been nice to have a bit more helpful staff.

Good for the price
first image of place itself is not so nice but finally can realize it is clean and safe. It is very close to train station and Asakusa temple. Once we did not have hot water in the shower but after reporting it was quickly resolved

Great for making new friends
The location was pretty good, since it was close enough to everything that I wanted to see that I didn`t travel too far out of my way. The only way cleanliness was a problem was in the shared bathrooms, where it seemed that some of the other guests had never learned to properly aim. I did like the open rooms with made for great space to have conversations and meet new friends. At the same time though, it meant there was little to no privacy.

Great place to meet people from all around the world, staff was super friendly as well. Lots of great shopping and dining places just a few minutes from the hostel!

Poor 2.0
The worst hotel room
The room is smell and very old. Much much older than the photo. There is a toilet but no bath. You need to use the public bath and need to pay for your towel. It is a hostel but charged with hotel rate for family. It is ridiculous that the fire escape needs to go through my family room. The worst hotel room with I have ever had.
Ka Man, hk3 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Good location & great facilities
The hostel is close to the train stations and there are plenty of restaurants nearby. It is also very close to the Sensoji Temple. There so a very well equipped kitchen that is always spotless. The staff were very helpful. The only negatives were the smell coming from the bathroom and the shower was cold. Would stay again if we were back in Tokyo.
Melissa, gb3 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
The location of this stay is very convenience, just opposite of Asakusa station. For transport to Haneda or Narita Airport, we can simply purchase the limousine bus ticket at Asakusa View Hotel just located beside this Khaosab World at 930 Yen for adult and 470 Yen for child.
You Chye, my1 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
Comfortable, but not close to the station
Booked 1 Bed in 6-Bed Dormitory with Bathroom. There are lockers and slippers in the room, shampoo and soap in the bathroom, one hunger, a hook, light, and 3 electrical outlets on the wall in your bed space. The bed was a spacious Tatami Mat.The room was also spacious so the other guests didn't really bother me. There was a kitchen and a lounge on the ground floor, but the room was comfy enough with bathroom and there were lots of restaurants near by, so I didn't use it. The front desk didn't give me correct information about the room and the area. Probably he was new. They put sign on the main road, but the design of the sign on the building was too fussy and hard to find(read). I couldn't find the hotel and walked around the block.
