We are a family of 5 (children between 14-18) that will go to Japan for 10 days. We are planning to stay at both ryokans and hostels as well as hotels.
At the moment we are planning to stay a few days in Tokyo, but also visit Kyoto and Nikko - and maybe Nara (might be too much).

As we are 5 - anybody who knows how difficult it is to reserve rooms for 5 as we want to avoid having multiple rooms (due to cost).

If possible we would like to find places to stay at following as much as possible of the following:
- place for 5 people, hopefully in one room
- located centrally in the towns, or convinient transportations nearby
- clean
- prefer Japanese atmosphere rather than western style (as staying in Japan)
- no curfew in Tokyo, the others might be ok

Appreciate any help!

I just looked through the blogs and found a couple of hostels in Tokyo that others recommended:

Davidga recommends Tokyo Hostel Taito (there are small dorm rooms with 4 beds in them, I don't see why they wouldn't be able to fit five in a room)


D_thuan09 recommends Khaosan Tokyo Smile, with the same set up as above:
