It is hard to know where to really begin with a city the size of Tokyo. The urban sprawl seems interminable, the cool neighbourhoods decentralised and the time insufficient to cover everything.

Of the numerous hostels in Tokyo, we have abridged the list settling on the top seven based on a number of aspects including, but not limited to, price, location, amenities and whether or not a breakfast is provided. Previous guest reviews can also be a good general guide to how things are going at each spot in recent months, and these too have been taken into consideration.
