This local hostel in Asakusa may not come cheaply, but it’s one that will leave you in so much awe from the first night of your stay to your last. Designed by local Asakusa craftsmen, Wired Hotel Asakusa is furnished floor to ceiling with unique interiors and amenities that showcase admirable local talent. It even has a shop that sells local handcrafted items!
Like other popular hostels, Wired Hotel Asakusa has its own café-bar-restaurant called ZAKBARAN which is an Edo-style eatery that serves authentic Japanese cuisine with only the best local and seasonal ingredients. It’s also where regular cultural and community events hosted by the hotel take place.
Its rooms are likewise stunning as they are all fully furnished to be of hotel quality. You can choose between booking a superior room, standard room, or a bunk bed in a dormitory.
