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." … "… mixed and private. Private dorms can be booked for 2, 3, or 4...
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, chilled out, friendly, clean - Great place to stay and meet other people, very clean, staff were amazingly helpful and friendly. Good location -- five- or ten-minute to the nearest station and twenty-five-minute walk to Asakusa. The only bad thing is the lockout between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., which isn't great for hangovers but it's ok -- you get through it eventually!" … "This place is truly imaculent! Super nice, super clean,...

"Very good and personal place - We stayed there twice for ten days in total. Everything is flashy and new. Staff is very helpful and speaks good English. The place is cozy and you meet fellow travelers, as this hostel mainly caters to foreigners. Easy to walk to Asakusa in thirty minutes but to everywhere else you need the subway, which is less than ten minutes away. We recommend to buy the two-day Metro Pass upon arrival at the airport, which...
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. The Location Unlike much of the budget lodging in Tokyo, Ace Inn Shinjuku is centrally located. It's not in Asakusa and is very close to the subway. Within a one block radius, there is a drug store, two grocery stores,...
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!). There are a few restaurants and convenience stores close by, but other than that, it's a pretty dull neighbourhood -- not half as charming as Asakusa. Rooms and Bathrooms The tiny dorms are typical of Tokyo, so...

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.
