Khaosan Tokyo Laboratory




If you were having trouble distinguishing between Khaosan's multiple Asakusa backpacker hostels, they've made things easier with the latest addition to the family. Billed as an 'experiment in high-end hostel style', the brand-new Khaosan Tokyo Laboratory offers private and dorm rooms in a wide spectrum of punchy colours (design nerds, take note: they're even rated by Munsell value). All rooms come with ensuite shower/bathrooms, though you can cavort with other travellers in the shared kitchen and common areas. There's free WiFi, and they'll also look after your luggage from 8am-8pm if you're off sightseeing. Dorms usually cost ¥3,200 per person, but they're being offered at a reduced rate of ¥2,500 as an opening promotion.
