Khaosan Tokyo Origami



New openings


The Khaosan hostel chain is well-known among budget travellers for its excellent service and extensive network, but its main attraction might still be the variety: each branch is designed and decorated in a unique, creative way – the World Asakusa location, housed in a renovated love hotel, is probably the best example. Opened in October 2014, their latest Asakusa venture is called Origami and markets itself as a 'decorative hostel', complete with an on-site gallery and a cosy 'common area'. Catering to everyone from single travellers to large groups, the place emphasises interaction among staff and guests, with workshops and other fun events taking place regularly. Rooms range from singles and doubles to eight-bed dorms, and the location could hardly be better: you'll find it right behind Senso-ji.
