  • Khaosan Tokyo Ninja

    Cheap, clean, and friendly, it's hard to find such a great hostel anywhere in the world, let alone Tokyo. From the supercool, patterned exterior to the dope looking wooden bunks all the little details remind you of how thoughtful the Japanese are when it comes to the appearance of things. Plus the folks here are SO accommodating! The one draw back is that it's kinda way the hell out there. That said, you can still walk to Akihabara and get your weird on at any number of maid cafes.

    This hostel, at 2,800 yen a night for a clean wooden bunk, is a really good deal. I appreciate the soft lighting and relaxed, non-suit wearing staff, two things that are sometimes hard to find in the more institution like hostels/cheap hotels that still exist all over Japan. There's a vending machine full of beer, and a kitchen in the TV lounge/ basement. The Khaosan Tokyo Ninja is within walking distance of Akihabara eletric/otaku area and Ryogoku sumo area, and recently this little row of shops under the freeway called 2K540 Aki-Oka Artisan that only sells hand-made crafts. The Aki-Oka shops may not be the main draw to staying at the Khaosan Tokyo Ninja, but I think the staff keeps up to date about those kind of things that just spring up in the area. Washing machines are down the street and as usual in Japan, are expensive, but a couple of different stations, J.R. and subway, are within walking distance.

    The clean dorms and backpacker atmosphere here are nice enough, and the price is right. Still, its Asakusa location is a bit on the outskirts of the Tokyo universe.

    This is a really cheap hostel located in a nice place. You can use JR or Subway to visit anywhere from this hostel. Some travelers seem to stay there long-term like a week or so while they travel around Tokyo. The bunks have locks so when you leave for the day you can lock up your stuff. This is one of those places you need to take your shoes off before walking around, so if you have traveling boots that have traveled, you might want to go to the 100 yen store and buy something for that smell. It's a good hostel. Longer term travelers and the English teachers who come in to the city from more rural areas don't have complaints about staying at this place.
