Japan Budget Accommodation: Tokyo Hostels
Budget Accommodation & Hostels in Tokyo
Tokyo offers a large number of some very affordable budget accommodation - both in traditional Japanese-style guest houses, or ryokan and more foreigner-friendly hostels and budget hotels.
Hostels in Tokyo include mixed dorms, female and male only dorms and private ensuite rooms or rooms with shared bath or shower, as well as long-term, shared "gaijin-houses."
Many of Tokyo's budget hostels and guesthouses are concentrated in the Asakusa district of the capital, an area not far from Tokyo Station, known for its traditional temples, shrines and gardens.
Tokyo hotels and hostels have high occupancy rates throughout the year, so please book your accommodation early.
