Liked: The location!! It is very near to Asakusa Line, Ginza Line and Tobu Nikko Line train. 3 stops from Ginza Line to Ueno Park and 2 stops from Asakusa Line to Tokyo SKy Tree. Also very near to Senso-ji for shopping. Ferry terminal for Himiko water bus is also around the corner.

Disliked: Small room. Also, the shower is not on every floor.

Liked: Staying at Khaosan was a pleasure, as usual. We enjoyed occasional common-room parties, fun chats with the caring staff and making new friends over a plate of taiyaki. The room – even though quite tight – was clean and tidy, and we could comfortably rest our heads on the freshly-pressed sheets after the whole day of walking. I would recommend staying in Khaosan to anyone looking for an inexpensive city room with a friendly environment.

Disliked: Might be a tight small for some people who are used to larger spaces. However this is Japan and it is a hostel.

Liked: Clean, cheap, and great location. Apart from A/C (which is usually not efficient for large dorms) this hostel had fans. It's the middle of summer and I didn't feel hot like at the other hostels.

Disliked: nothing

Liked: The staff was friendly. Many useful maps and guides provided.

Disliked: There weren't electrical outlets by my bed and the showers are better at Khaosan Ninja because it was a door and not just a curtain separating the shower. The pillow did not provide any support and almost gave me a neck cramp. The cleanliness was average.
