1. plat hostel keikyu asakusa karin

Keikyu Electric Railway has entered the hostel industry with this popular hostel.

With the concept of safety and security, we've developed a slightly luxurious hostel for women, families and others who haven't stayed in a hostel before to feel comfortable.
The name Plat Hostel was derived from ”platform”, to express that the hostel is not the destination but part of the travel journey, and the Japanese word ”puratto”, to indicate a hostel where visitors can stay freely and without worry.

While keeping the hostel on a small scale, we've created various room types to suit all different uses. You can also enjoy the beautiful view from the rooftop.
In addition, there are also many facilities including a launderette and kitchen to cater for long-term visitors as well.

Shower use is 800 JPY *only guests, no towels
We have group discounts/gifts (subject to conditions)

2.BOOK AND BED TOKYO

2.BOOK AND BED TOKYO

Book and Bed Tokyo is a new style of hostel targeting both overseas and domestic travelers. Located only a minute’s walk from Ikebukuro Station’s West Exit, the hostel is founded on a “bookstore accommodation” concept: almost all of us has the experience of reading late into the night, our eyelids growing heavier, until suddenly we wake up to morning sunlight. It’s times like these this hostel has in mind, offering guests the perfect joy of that instant you fall into slumber.

With design by Makoto Tanijiri and Ai Yoshida’s Suppose Design Office and book selection by Shibuya Publishing & Booksellers, the hostel has also attracted international attention as a part of new cultural trends in Tokyo and was featured in major world newspapers like The Guardian and The Independent. To top it off, a night’s stay is quite reasonably priced, starting from 3,500 JPY.

5.guest house MARUYA

The theme of guest house MARUYA is, ”Stay and be addicted to Atami.” The place brings together guests and the locals, and the local lifestyles as well. Stay and stroll the town with the locals and other guests; chat with the locals at the cafe across the street, picking up some great information; and make the most of the town with ways you never knew before. By the time you leave MARUYA, Atami will become ”another everyday” for you. Why not start out by immersing yourself in Atami for a while. Each room is capsule-shaped, and you can maintain your privacy while still enjoying the company of other guests in the common lounge and kitchen. The neighborhood around MARUYA was once an entertainment district , so you will find many small drinking spots and restaurants. For breakfast, you can buy appetizing dried fish at stores in the shopping arcade and serve yourself by grilling and eating. We hope you enjoy various types of stay!

9.Khaosan Tokyo Origami

Ura-Asakusa: backstreets to one of Tokyo’s most famous neighborhoods. Different from glamorous Omote-Asakusa, where the traveler finds Kaminarimon Gate, Senso-ji Nakamise-dori, and other Asakusa symbols, this is home to rows of classic eateries and workshops filling the alleyways and roads behind Senso-ji with lively, authentic, real energy. Khaosan Tokyo Origami stands at the entrance to this district, where craftsmanship, especially leatherworking, is at the forefront.
More than any other Khaosan location, this hostel feels connected to the local area, participating in local events, hosting neighborhood strolls, and more. All throughout the hostel you’ll see origami works hand-made by staff, and over in the gallery space you’ll be able to enjoy paintings and other works of art. Truly, this is a place filled with the warmth and joy of humanity.
