    It suits you if you're a solo traveller with budget. The bed is a little bit small but comfortable. The bed and other facilities is clean. The staff is kind and she explained the necessary information about the hostel. The location is great, not to crowded and a lot of small store. It also near Inaricho Station, so it is easy for traveling around Tokyo with train.

    Great value of money”

    We booked Hostel Kura last August 2019 due to its cheap price. Location is near Inaricho station, a 5-10 minute walk from subway. The area is peaceful and quiet and near to tourist attractions like Asakusa and Ueno. However, there are no storage for luggage, you need to put them under your bed. Overall, it is a great value for money.

    Clean and friendly, few facilities. ”

    If for some reason you want to stay in that particular location like I did, you should go for it. The hostel is within reasonable walking distance of both the Ueno area and Asakusa, which is nice for travelers. All beds are in one big room, and branching off of the room are a couple of toilets and showers. The hostel has a very small seating area, and then that’s about it. For anyone looking for a full kitchen or laundry facilities, look elsewhere! Otherwise it’s perfectly nice.

    リピーターです。キレイで掃除も行き届いており、この価格のホステルでは良好だと思います。 ベッドにはカーテンがあり、プライバシーも確保。 また、USBとコンセントが各1点ついています。 安い宿を探せば他にも出てきますが、以下の点が良い点でした。 ・スタッフが親切 ・清潔 ・セキュリティロックあり ・飲食提供あり(薬膳カレーやアルコール) ・最寄り駅が上野駅(徒歩10分)、稲荷町駅(徒歩5分) ・近くにコンビニ、24時間営業のスーパーマーケット、22時まで営業している100円ショップあり。 ・バスルーム、洗面所には扉あり。 (すぐ隣のベッドの方は物音が気になるかも) ・シャワー室は2つ、シャンプー、ボディソープあり。 ・男性専用トイレ(小便器のみ)、女性専用トイレ、男女共用トイレ各1つあり。 ・パッキングスペースあり。 ・タオル有料レンタル100円。 以下は気をつけた方が良い点です。 ・チェックインは22時まで。それ以降は出入自由。(レイトチェックインは+1000円) ・ロッカースペースが小さい。財布を入れるような小さいロッカーしかない。(ベッドの下に一応スペースはありますが、大きいバッグは入りません)
