Getting to GRIDS TOKYO ASAKUSABASHI
Since Asakusabashi Station is so close to other main Tokyo train stations, there are a few stations that you can get off at and easily walk to the hostel. However, the best and closest station to get off at is JR Asakusabashi's West Exit. From there it is a very easy 3~5min walk to the hostel versus a 9min walk from say Akihabara Station.
Room Types at GRIDS TOKYO ASAKUSABASHI
The rooms at GRIDS TOKYO ASAKUSABASHI are divided into two major types.
1. DORMITORY TYPE
(rent one bed)
2. PRIVATE & GROUP TYPE
(rents the whole room)
PRIVATE & GROUP TYPE
Renting a Private or Group Room is basically like renting a room at a hotel. You get all expected toiletries and such as you would at a hotel, the only difference is renting a room here at GRIDS is WAY cheaper than renting one at a hotel. ESPECIALLY in this area. You can expect most hotels this close to major tourist spots to be pricey.
Something also really important to mention is when staying in a hostel in Japan, normally you would be asked to be quiet out of respect for the others in the room. However, if you were to stay in a private/group room, there aren't really as strict limitations! So you get the price of a hostel and the freedom of a hotel! There are different types of rooms to choose from, so we'll give a brief overview of what's available.
PRIVATE ROOM (2 PERSONS ROOM)
This room is a good sized room for two, and includes extra things like a kettle, towels, shavers that you normally would be charged for if you were to stay in the dormitory style rooms. Like at a hotel, the Private Rooms have their own shower and bathroom that is only for those staying in that room.
PRIVATE ROOM (4 PERSONS ROOM)
There are two different types of private rooms for those in groups of four:
PRIVATE ROOM (6 PERSONS ROOM)
Finally, the 6 persons room has six beds total, however, four of those are bunk beds. The other 2 beds are on Japanese tatami!
