Tokyo Sumidagawa Youth Hostel is set in a residential area of the old downtown region of Tokyo, giving guests an authentic feel of living in Tokyo. With easy access from both international airports and the main attractions, it makes for the ideal city getaway.

The friendly, helpful staff will make you feel welcome and you can enjoy this cosy Japanese-style hostel complete with 'tatami' rooms. After you have used the facilities, including internet access and TV room, it’s time to start exploring the sights.

Akihabara Electric Town, Asakusa temple and Ryougoku Sumo Hall are within walking distance, and from the nearest station you can get to places like Shinjuku, Shibuya, Tokyo Big Site, Tokyo Disney Resort and Kamakura. You can even organise a one day trip to Nikko, Hakone or Mount Fuji area and if you arrive in late July don’t forget to watch the fantastic Sumidagawa Fireworks Festival.

J'ai beaucoup aimé la décoration traditionnelle ainsi que l'espace disponible aussi bien dans la chambre que dans les parties communes. J'ai regretté l'absence d'ascenseur.

Staff were very helpful and accomodating. Rooms were very spacious (major plus) with good sized lockers. HI remain my 'go to' chain of hostels along with st christophers.. one gripe...they didn't (yet) have credit card facilities however they allowed me to pay day by day which helped me manage my yen. cheers Tony
