Opened in 2013, Tokyo Ueno Youth Hostel is a super option for travelling on a shoestring. The private room (for three to five people) offers more space for families or gangs of friends. An added bonus? The convenient location, a minute from Yushima Station. However, the winning point is definitely the price. At 4,000 yen per night, it’s a no-brainer.
