I stayed here once back in 2002 when I was in Japan for a job interview. For a Youth Hostel, it was clean and the staff were friendly. Everything was dated and the rooms were small even for Japanese standards but you get what you pay for. If I was young and poor again, I would recommend it but if...

Conveniently located and reasonable priced, New Koyo Hotel is a good option for those looking for a clean budget hotel in Tokyo. Friendly & helpful staff. The only problem was less room for luggage, else it a nice place to stay.

The New Koyo has helped my husband and I afford several trips to Tokyo with our friends. The conditions are similar to a college dormitory, with shared bathrooms and showers and small, private, lockable rooms. The rooms feature a small television with stand and a large, school-style locker along with a slightly raised tatami sleeping space with an aisle beside...

I stayed here for 4 nights in April. The rooms are very small, but there's enough place for your luggage. There's also a safe and a TV. Sure, it's not much of a luxury stay, but for the price it's fine. There are public toilets and washbasins on every floor. On the ground floor there are 2 showers, which were...

Located 2 stations North of Ueno, convenient and quick to get from the airport. The owners and staffs are really friendly and helpful, and gonna make your stay in Tokyo better. The rooms are small, and a bit noisy, but clean, cheap and just right for me. They just upgraded all the toilets, and the showers(24/7) are really hot and...

When my friends and I first booked this hotel recently (end March/early April 2016), the staff was very upfront about the outlook of their hotel ; that it is an old hotel and the walls between the rooms are quite thin and you may hear guests snoring at the next room. There is no lift available as the hotel has...

I had another place booked, I was going to stay here for 10 days and then go to another place, but after staying here just one or two nights I decided to stay here my entire month's trip.

Only two stations away on the Joban Line from Nippori, which is part of the Yamanote line. Tsukuba Express line, Joban line, and Hibiya line all stop at Minami-senju. The station is not too far from Haneda either, but there's nothing much around the station. (But there are kombinis so don't worry about your basic needs.) The room was very...

The hotel is a short walk to both the Tokyo subway and the JR rail line with a direct train to Narita an to the Ueno and Tokyo rail stations. The rooms are very small, but they are private rooms, not dorms. The bathrooms are shared and newly renovated, and a Japanese style bath is available in the evenings. There...

Good: Price similar to a capsule hotel, but you get a single room! (Y2900/night) Quiet & safe neighbourhood, convenient to 7-11, subway and JR lines fast wifi, as in most places in Japan. Bad: No bath, only showers. But can't complain at this price. Could do with a lick of paint, but everything is clean and functional.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
