Among Tokyo’s new breed of cool hostels, Nui looms large ahead of the competition. Situated a few minutes from Sumida River, Tokyo Skytree and the Asakusa area, in a converted toy factory, Nui means handmade and this vibe permeates the whole place. There are dorms with 8 bunk beds as well as twin and double rooms for those wishing more privacy (although the showers and bathrooms are all shared). The common areas foster the exchange of travel information with other travelers who come from all over the world, with a lot of Japanese guests as well. Even if you are not staying there, go over for a drink in the evenings to mingle with some nice people.
