Three Fun Hostels in Near Akihabara Station


Are you looking for an affordable comfortable hostel near Akihabara station?

We found three hostels that are at a walking distance from the station but are more than reasonably priced. 


GRIDS Akihabara



GRIDS Akihabara is a hotel and hostel in one, located in the center of Akihabara. It is a great accommodation for tourists because it is also close to Asakusa and Tsukiji.



At the entrance, there is a relaxing bar lounge decorated to look like a terminal with a lot of neon colors that give it a futuristic look.



Even though the prices are more than reasonable, the building is quite new and the rooms are very highly rated.

You can choose from a variety of rooms. There are male and female-only floors for those who want a bit more privacy.


  • BUNK RED IN DORMITORY:A dormitory room similar to a capsule hotel. 2~4F  are men-only and 5F is only for women.
  • SINGLE BED IN DORMITORY ROOM:A tiny “private room” with a comfortable single bed, separated by curtains to give an illusion of a room.  
  • PRIVATE FAMILY ROOM (without a private bathroom): for families or smaller groups
  • PRIVATE FAMILY ROOM (with a private bathroom): for families or smaller groups PRIVATE DELUXE ROOM: with a private toilet, bathroom/shower room
  • PRIVATE JAPANESE ROOM: decorated to look like a room in a Japanese traditional inn – ryokan


The rooms are already pretty affordable but can find even better deals on their homepage.
