The living rooms can be used by the staying guests 24hours and with the lights on, but please keep quiet at night. In the guest rooms, we appreciate you to keep the lights off at night if somebody else is sleeping. In that case, instead of using the overhead lights, we would apreciate you to use your mobile phone lights or use the reading lights provided to each bed.

All rooms are shared with other people, so please be considerate to other guests. Also please make the beds your self, and wash dishes after use. We will explain details upon check-in, but feel free to ask anything if you are worried!

Can we walk to the hostel from Asakusa staiton instead of Tawaramachi station ?

Yes, but we still recommend you to come from Tawaramachi staiton when you arrived, as they way from this station is much easier and we don't want you to get lost. Once you get used to the area Asakusa staiton is useful too, each Asakusa stations(Toei, Tokyo metro, Tokyo sky tree line) are about 13-15mins walk, and TX Asakusa station is about 5mins walk away. On the map, you may find this TX Asakusa station closer to the hostel, but we are afraid that this line cannot be used when you arrive from the airport.
