Best capsule-style hostel in the area!”

This place is in a great location, a really clean and comfortable place to stay, and was a good deal even during Golden Week holidays. Seconds away from Sensoji and maybe a 3 minute walk from the Asakusa subway stations, the place is pretty convenient, and it had all the extra amenities I expect in a hostel (laundry rooms, kitchen). The capsules were also pretty nice, with enough space to sit up or kneel without bumping your head, and a little fold-out table. There was even a pretty big locker right inside, along with a bike lock type setup to keep suitcases safe. I’d definitely recommend the place to anyone looking for a capsule-style hostel in Asakusa!

Great location. 2min to sensoji temple. Convenient. ”

It was safe to walk around the Asakusa area even at night. Location was great. Connected by the Toei Asakusa line and Ginza line. Halal food is available around. The eatery at the hostel was closed during my entire stay. Cleanliness was tops! I stayed for 5nights and they cleaned my capsule after the 3rd night. Will definitely stay at Enaka again when i come Tokyo next time.

We had a great stay here. It was extremely clean and had lots of signs posted reminding guests to be mindful of noise levels so it was very quiet. And it's in a great location close to subway and tons of food options including McDonald's and Starbucks. Lots of shops close by as well. Would 100% recommend and def will stay here again if I ever come back to Tokyo.

Walking distance 10 mins to subway and train station, Senso ji Temple. Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean, wifi, nice capsule beds with lockers inside the capsule, little cupboard, charging station and flip table. Cons, For upper capsule, its a bit of a manouvere to climb out, the check out time can be improved as 10am check out was a little early for me. Check in time as well is a little late. Room for improvement?
