I WONDER if you know? How they live in Tokyo.

Tokyo was nothing short of amazing. It was a final pitstop on our 9-day Japan trip. Needless to say we had the theme song (Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift) going on the entire week!

My recommendations for hostel-stay:
Khaosan Tokyo Ninja
http://www.khaosan-tokyo.com/en/ninja/
2-5-1 Nihombashi Bakurocho, Chuo-ku, Tokyo
Visited January 2015, stayed in a shared 4-bed dorm for ¥3000/night
My stay here was comparable to the backpacker hostels I have come across in Europe. The hostel is a great base to explore Tokyo – a few Metro stops away from Asakusa and Tsujkiji fish market. Getting to central Tokyo (Shinjuku, Shibuya and Harajuku) was just a 20min ride away. Within the vicinity of the hostel are also great places to eat and shop; I found a neat leather crafts shop just a street away.
Beds and shower facilities are clean, wifi is fast and the common room in the basement is pretty cozy. I appreciated that the staff allowed us to deposit our bags and take a shower before check-in. The only cons I encountered was that there was no lift (so carrying large luggages up 4 levels would be a nightmare) and there were no accessible powerpoint sockets in the room if one were to sleep on the topmost bunkbed.  -My TripAdvisor review (NaniSG)
