Kangaroo Hotel Minamisenju
Minami-Senju
Minowa
Ueno
1-21-11 Nihonzutsumi, Taito-ku, Tokyo

This little nubbin of a hotel has only 18 small but modern rooms and shared toilets but it’s dead cheap with singles starting at only ¥3,600. Family-owned, you won’t be lining the pockets of real estate moguls or badly-behaved sex-tape-making trust fund brats either. You can choose from Japanese style with tatami mats and futons on the floor, or Western style with flooring and beds. Larger rooms have loft beds. Rooms are equipped with mini fridges, TVs, and LAN cables. Wifi is floating through the air for anyone to access and there are a couple of computers for use in the lobby, too.

Recently, they have opened a second location across the road from the original location called “Side B”.

The nearest stations are Minamisenju and Minowa. Minamisenju is an 11-minute walk, while a stroll to Minowa Station takes 13 minutes. This is a quiet neighborhood, but there are plenty of the usual convenience stores around. It’s only about 15 minutes on foot to Ueno or Asakusa.
