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
"I stayed in this hostel for a couple of weeks, the facilities are great, among the best facilities in Tokyo (every room is air conditioned, the kitchen is clean, there's free wireless -- though the hostel provided internet PCs are coin operated -- and each toilet has a bidet!), also the staff clean the place only as the Japanese can (very thoroughly). The location is good near a metro station and 7/11, but a bit remote from the centre of...
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....

"Best hostel in Tokyo! - If you're looking for the best backpack experience in Tokyo, JGH is the best place in my oppinion. Though everything is quite small (rooms, facilities) it makes up for in great company, hosts and the local area is booming with cheap shops and you get used to the trip to central Tokyo (about 30 mins). You can't avoid meeting other people at this hostel, and that is the best part about this hostel -- you will love it!"...
"Great Social Hostel - We arrived at the hostel on Friday and the lady at the desk handed us keys and information about Tokyo. We were lucky enough to have a four bed dorm to ourselves.

If you love backpacking this is definitely the place to stay in...
Khaosan Tokyo Annex
"Only three showers for the males and this is a relatively large hostel. There's a strict no shoes policy and if one person has athlete's foot, the whole place is at risk. The fungus got among here and within days I had a nasty itch. Bring shower shoes and small bags. Like many backpackers in Tokyo, space is a premium. As in several hostels I stayed at in Tokyo, Khaosan did not take bookings over the phone, and even booking on the spot is...
"This place is truly imaculent! Super nice, super clean, super relaxing. This place has the best showers i have ever experianced in my life.

Khaosan Tokyo Smile
"Poorly managed, not very clean, tried to rip me off - I had many problems with this hostel and could not recommend it to anyone. First, the person at reception could not give me directions to the hostel to save her life. She told me to find the police station at the subway exit and that they would give me a map. Well the police had no map and had to pull out a street atlas to figure out where the place was. Wtf? How hard is it to give simple...
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.
