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
"Nice Cozy Hostel - Great place to meet international travelers. Very clean accommodations and friendly, multi-lingual staff that will help you with whatever you need. Pros -- Relatively central location, close to multiple stations and Asukasa shine/markets. Very clean accommodations, everything is well maintained. Cozy common room at the lobby making it a very central area. Everybody meets here and you eat/cook/store food in the small kitchen...
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....

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 - for the price a person can not complain at all. tokyo is very expensive so to find something as affordable that is only like thirty minutes from the heart of tokyo is impossible. the staff is pleasant and the living area is clean and for 12 dollars a night a person could hardly complain. Also the staff goes out of their way to provide good locations for sightseeing." … "The owners, man and wife, are very nice. - The owner and...
"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. The hostel is in a great location and the Subway is a 10 min walk away. The owners are super friendly and often make you tea and give you snacks. Its great if your social and want to meet people. If you love backpacking this is definitely the place to stay in...
"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,...

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.
