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.

Staff are excellent - very friendly and patient - and extremely helpful. Masa in particular took the time to help me plan my train trip from Tokyo to the Wakayama peninsula. The view is incredible and the hot tub is great, both in the early morning to start your day and in the evening after running around all over Tokyo, simply to soak away all your worries...location is perfect, easy to find right next to the train station, with a fun neighborhood nearby. Curfew is a little bit of a bummer.

Kamakura - GO TO KAMAKURA! It's awesome - small coastal town with a similar vibe to Carmel, CA. Stay at the Kamakura YH and say hello to Yoshino - he's a great guy. He'll give you good tips on things to see.
