The mega-city of Tokyo is divided into several suburbs, which are almost cities themselves. You can find a wide range of Tokyo hostel options in every suburb and you may want to choose a hostel which is close to whatever you are interested in since traveling from one suburb to another can take some time. Hostels in the more central suburbs tend to be quite expensive compared to what you might to be used to, so if you plan to stay for a longer period of time or are on a budget, you might consider looking for a hostel in an adjacent but more outlying suburb. If time is an issue, you should stick with a more central location.
Getting around can be a little confusing to visitors. Get a map and ask for directions at a ticket booth. It is also a good idea to get a detailed street map since smaller streets do not have names and it can be difficult to orient yourself. If you get lost trying to find your hostel in Tokyo, the Japanese are eager to help you find your way, but be aware that they might even be too friendly to tell you that they do not know where to go. So you might want to get a second or third opinion to make sure they didn't point you in the wrong direction.

K's House Tokyo
"K's House Tokyo is a well-located, social hostel in Tokyo, close to many attractions and easily accessible by public transportation. The Location Most popular hostels in Tokyo are located within walking distance of each other in the Asakusa neighbourhood, and this one is no exception. It is a short walk away from a subway station, and thus accessible by public transportation from both the airport and the main train station. There is a...
Khaosan Tokyo Original
"I did a lot of research before choosing this hostel, and I'm glad I did. I've stayed in hostels all over the world and this place is definitely one of the cleanest. I stayed in a dorm with a view over the river. My bed was amazingly comfortable and had a wonderful duvet, which I would have liked to take home with me. The bathroom set-up is a bit odd — from the female dorm you basically have to go into the common area to get to the bathroom....
Asakusa Ryokan Toukaisou
"Very clean hostel - We stayed at this hostel for 3 nights during October 2013. It is conveniently located in the Asakusa area of Tokyo close to several subway stations. JR Ueno station is a half hour walk away. The hostel is very clean with friendly & helpful staff. The only drawback is the lack of a decent kitchen area which makes self-catering difficult." … "… room if you cancel the DAY OF the reservation or the DAY BEFORE...
Sakura Hostel Asakusa
"Sakura Hostel in Asakusa is a large hostel located within walking distance of the tourist areas in Asakusa. It lacks character and is not as clean as good hostels in Japan are, but it's a good choice for a night or two if you're not too picky. The Location The hostel is located near the very touristy areas in Asakusa, and a short distance from the subway. It is easily accessible by public transportation from both the airports and the...
"Great place - Stayed 5 nights in total at this hostel. Mieko is the nicest Japanese person I met during 2 weeks in Japan. Nothing is too much to ask. Met some amazing people at this hostel -- hard not to! Yes, it was tiny but so, so cosy. Ten minutes to the train station and 30 to central Tokyo via JR. Area seemed safe, great supermarket at the end of the road. There is a kitchen at the hostel as well so makes the trip very affordable. Great...
"The most fun and best hostel I've stayed at in twelve countries - I stayed here for a week in March of 2008. This hostel is great. Its a ten-minute walk from Minowa station and easy to find. The lounges and community areas are great for meeting people, playing games, music, poker, and so much more! We had a blast. There are convenience stores nearby, and its a quiet, safe neighborhood. It also had free Wi-Fi and internet computers to use....
"This place is truly imaculent! Super nice, super clean, super relaxing. This place has the best showers i have ever experianced in my life.

Ace Inn Shinjuku
"Ace Inn Shinjuku is a new addition to the Tokyo budget scene. Oopened in August of 2007, Ace Inn Shinjuku has an excellent location and that "new hostel smell," and is located in a tall concrete building with elevator.

Khaosan Tokyo Ninja
"Khaosan Ninja is a neat place, with tiny dorm rooms and modern amenities. The Location Khaosan Ninja Hostel is located very close to Bakurocho station (if you can find exit 4C -- follow exit 6 and you will see the signs!).

Tokyo Travel Tips & Suggestions
It is an interesting and attractive place.
We recommend to buy the two-day Metro Pass upon arrival at the airport, which is only 1,000 Yen. In the city you can only buy a one-day pass at 700 Yen. Try to book everything in advance, as hostels here are not used to backpackers just turning up and asking for a room. This will be cheaper too, as reservations for budget rooms go first. Prices range around 7,000 Yen for two people in a small room (everything is Bonsai in Japan). We probably spent about the same as whilst traveling in Australia -- no more! And yes, Japan is one of the most exciting countries we have ever seen.

Tokyo is fantastic! And not as expensive as everyone says it is if you do it on a budget. You can get cheap food everywhere. It would help a lot if you familiarise yourself with as much Japaneese food as you can before you go there so you know what things are and you don't have to ask too much if you don't speak Japaneese.
