A brand new “Oak hostel Fuji” 2016.04.01
Oak hostel is a dormitry style short term accommodation. There are 3 Oak hostels in Tokyo, and they're starting a new one in Asakusa in April, 2016. Oak hostel Fuji is the name of this new one. This place might come in handy if you need a cheap short-term stay in Tokyo.
Oakhouse gave me a chance to stay in March 25th, during its two-days-long open trial stay for Oakhouse residents.
There's a common space and kitchen on the first floor. My room was on the 3rd floor. The sleeping cabin is small but the walls are thick and concrete.
Stay for a night is around 3000 yen. I'd say it's good for the price. 3000 yen is a minimum pricing for a hostel. You cannot find any other hostel cheaper than this, unless it's a capsule hotel or manga cafe.
If you live in a Oakhouse, it's OK to let your friend stay in your room for two nights a month. Free of extra charge.
Moving in with a roommate is pretty common too. There are currently two couples who are sharing a room in our house, Oakhouse Kichijoji 2. You just need to pay 10,000 yen on top of the monthly rent per person.
