Centrally located in the heart of Tokyo’s business district, HI Tokyo Central Youth Hostel is based in a skyscraper which offers spectacular views over Tokyo at night and on a clear day views of Mount Fuji. The hostel is next to the JR Iidabashi Station and there’s convenient access to four major subway lines directly below the building.

Accommodation is provided in dorm rooms for 4-10 people, there are Japanese style tatami rooms for relaxing in, free Wi-Fi and a meeting room which can accommodate up to 45 people.

From Tokyo Central Youth Hostel you can walk to the gates of the Imperial Palace or Tokyo Dome Stadium, and it’s just 15-20 minutes by train to travel to places such as Shinjuku, Shibuya, Asakusa, Ueno and Akihabara.

Government imposed curfew between 11pm and 6am for reason of building security.

Staffs are very friendly and helpful. The hostel is charged at a very reasonable cheap rate for the youth. I have no doubts to choose this hostel again when I visit Tokyo in the future.
