      Nana and her husband Yuta are supremely terrific hosts! And the pristine bed is perfect.”

      For exploring east side of Tokyo (the museums in Ueno, Akihabara, not to mention Minowa itself), Sato San's rest is just perfect. There's good food in the neighborhood of "Joyful Minowa", and all essentials are 2mins away. It's safe, shows another, warmer side of Tokyo. Best of all, Nana the owner genuinely wants guests to feel fine. I will stay in Sato San again even if I had the money to spend on a month in Hyatt.

The location is close to Uneo which is useful if you want to can the shinkansen trains or go to Narita airport on the skyliner. Sato Sans rest is very low in cost and is very clean as you would expect in Japan. Lau san

      This place is a gem! The owner Nana is extremely helpful and welcoming. The place is very clean and quiet. Another big bonus is the price, it's extremely reasonable for Tokyo. Also the location is a couple of stops from Ueno which is convenient for the shinkanen, Narita Airport express or JR Yamanote line. It's basic accommodation but done extremely well. Can't recommend this enough if you are traveling Japan on a budget.

      It's really a cute, nice, quiet and clean place. Nana, the owner, is very friendly and helpful and she speaks English. The room we stayed in was Japanese style, and we were fortunate enough to experience some-kind of Sunday market, in the area. It's really a great place to experience the life in Japan way. My wive even got a calligraphy lesson from Nana. :) When I say he place is quiet, it doesn't mean it's secluded. Very close by there is a tram terminal, and a bus terminal that can get you the to more festive part of Tokyo. With one bus ride you can get to a fabric street, and a halal restaurant. And there are 7-eleven near by and couple of drugstores.

      Will come back here for my next visit in Tokyo.”

      Sato's is a friendly, family-run hostel located in a lively market area where locals gather for daily groceries. It is about 10-15 minutes walk from the nearest Tokyo Metro station. Very friendly and approachable people. Through casual conversations with them, I was able to gather a lot of useful information for my travel. Although this place is not huge, it offers a relaxing, comfortable atmosphere. I recommend Sato's for solo and couple travellers.

      This is a hole... There is NO space for standing in the 'hole'”

      I, and as I noticed other travelers too, was shocked to see what they call a room, it is a hole, and basically the whole area is covered by the tatamis on the floor, one right next to the other one, without ANY space. There is NO space to put your bag (luggage?? NO WAY) there is Nowhere you can put your clothes, there is nowhere you can sit, nothing... the space is a hole filled with 'tatamis'. It is a shame where the 'cheap' accommodation is getting.... This should not be available for civilized people... Maybe in China ok... Between the 'rooms' there is NO wall at all, so you can hear everybody in the whole place breath, talk, hair drying, or whatever they might do... Def NOT a place to rest!

      Best Hostel”

      The hostel was very clean, the location was superb its inside the joyful minowa market where you can local foods. 7 eleven is just fews steps away same with the Tram station. Yuta and Nana were very hospitable and accommodating. Will definitely go back and stay again in this place.
