  • An absolutely fantastic place to stay right in the heart of Tokyo! Welcoming and friendly staff who were more than happy to answer any questions I had about the area, not to mention the selection of homemade sightseeing guides provided by the hotel! I simply cannot recommend the Oak Hotel enough, a wonderful place to stay and I'll definitely try to return soon!

  • Room was VERY small, but not really an issue as a solo traveller! Got a good deal for a room in Tokyo, so not complaining that much, especially considering how little time I spent in the room. Staff were very friendly and spoke good English.

  • Very friendly staff, well maintained and great location (5 mins from Inaricho station and 10 mins from Ueno station). Also close to Sensoji temple and to many other Asakusa attractions ! I'd definitely recommend it to others.

  • This hostel is wonderful! Great location (very close to the Inaricho subway stop in Ueno, within walking distance of Asakusa and Ueno Park), wonderful staff (excellent English, went above and beyond to help me), excellent facilities (very clean and secure). I have traveled extensively in East Asia, and this was probably the best experience I have had at a hostel. My private room provided many of the amenities of a hotel at a very reasonable price for Tokyo. I will definitely stay here again.

  • Really nice hostel. Only downfall is that it is more like a hotel and there is only a small communal area, in additional, not many activities are organized so all these things make it harder to meet new people. During my 6 day stay, 1 activity was organized (which was awesome and very well organized!).
