Shimokitazawa is one of Tokyo’s most popular neighborhoods for lovers of alternative live music, vintage clothing, third wave coffee and an off-the-beaten-track atmosphere. Soon, the neighborhood will be getting its first long-overdue hostel in the form of Shimokita Hostel, which opens April 3.

Shimokita Hostel aims to be a “social neighborhood hostel.” More than just a place to sleep, it connects guests with the people, events and culture of the neighborhood with information, guides and more. Seems like the perfect place to get introduced to this unique side to Tokyo.
