Value for money”

Tokyo Ueno Youth Hostel was very near to metro Yushima station. 10 mins walking distance to other metro or JR station like Naka-Okamachi & Okamachi station. It was near to Ameyoko & gyomu super within a 6 mins walking distance. The room was spacious, we are able to open 3 luggage in the same time. The bathroom was slightly small but it was fine. Body wash and hair shampoo was provided. Room was slightly dusty but overall cleanliness was good. Although they will not clean your room everyday but they will clean the dustbin in room everyday. Coin Laundry and dryer provided at the rooftop, detergent was free. There was a laundry space to dry your clothes too. Lounge is at 7th floor, with microwave, refrigerator, TV, water and some free miso soup. I would say the hostel is value for money, I will recommend to those that look for private room with ensuite bathroom. Would like to stay again if I going to visit Tokyo in future.

Location! Location! Location!”

This hostel is in a great location in Tokyo as it is five minutes away by foot from Ueno Park and about 15 from Akihabara, and about 2 minutes away from Amekayo market. The rooms are a decent size for Tokyo and each has a private bathroom with a bathtub and shower, something most hostels don't offer. On the 7th floor there is a cozy lounge with a fridge, microwave oven and hot water for use. You can also sit at low tables on a tatami level to eat or watch tv. The rooms could use a paint job and the beds maybe could be upgraded. I was put off by the insistence of the hostel to guests to use the elevator and not the stairs (only in an emergency) as the hostel property starts from the 4th floor up, the reason being that the lower levels were not the property of the hostel. There was even a huge screen rolled down blocking the fourth floor stairs to the 3rd floor, but it was easy to slip passed the screen as I did not want to use that old, small, scary elevator!

Location Superb and helpful staff”

We really enjoy our stay at tokyo UY Hostel. Staff was really helpful and friendly. Location is superb, near 3 subway and 1 JR Station. There is a lounge at 7th floor for relax or having meal. Hostel room was a little bit dusty in a few spot, but it was because this hostel is already an old hostel but They will renovated it in November 2018. I believe this hostel will become a greater place after renovated.

Price Location & cleaniness

The hostel is near 2 train stations for travelling around Tokyo. Bars, cafe and restaurants around the hostel keeps you from being hungry. A lawson 100yen mart is nearby too with very cheap water and snacks. The only downside is the crazily small toilet.
