Cheapest place in Tokyo that I found which is perfect for a backpacker although the lack of a common room meant it was hard to talk to other people in a relaxed area. Mattresses were a bit thin so if you like a hard surface then it's perfect. A bit of a walk to any attractions but metro is 10 minutes away. Overall a decent place but not a true backpackers hostel
Capsules are a great concept if you want both a cheap place and some intimacy. Perfect place here
Although there are locked storage areas for personal use, you must relinquish your keys every time you go out - so if you're naturally distrustful or paranoid about the staff stealing your things while you're away, then avoid this hotel (Note: the staff are extremely friendly and unlikely to do this - however, it's a point worth noting). Facilities are nice. The staff do speak English. There's a communal, dorm-like atmosphere. There is a fridge, microwave, and vending machine on the first floor.

Very peaceful and nice stay. Everything was clean, capsule confortable with more privacy than hostels. Nice little bath tub and a versatile check in present bag. The cute manga figure in hotel signs was fun.
Very cozy, clean and the most affordable hotel in Tokyo. The temperature in my capsule was nice until late morning. It got pretty warm around 9am when I was there in late May. The location isn't bad but there's not a lot around to visit short of a 20 min walk that I could see. There is no common room or kitchen. They do have an outside roof lounge but didn't see anyone up there when I went up a few times. I like to meet people so I moved to the Origami Khosan once they had an open bed.
Very tidy and clean place. Great if you wanna have someplace private. It's not a place for socialising, which may not be a bad thing.
You use a machine to purchase accommodation. Front desk staff does not show you around. Mostly Japanese salary men where using this establishment during my stay. No common room, no kitchen, you have to sign in to use the roof top. As a result, I stayed for one night and left. Something black on the bottom of my mattress. If you're just looking for the novelty of a capsule hotel you can find much better for around the same price. Hotel was located close to a subway station.
Location isn't ideal, not terrible, but I got pretty good sleep here. Plugs inside the capsules are nice. Lots of room for bags. Can do laundry in the hostel with coins. Rooftop area that I never got around to.
Great storage space for bags. The upstairs patio is nice, but the unreliable WiFi made booking and emailing tricky. Otherwise it was good. Would recommend if you're just needing a few days in Tokyo, but it wasn't really an exciting hostel as far as social spaces or meeting people go.
Don't come too early because 3 o'clock is 3 o'clock for the receptionist. If you are there 5min before, he may let you wait by the entrance during 5min just to start checking-in only from exactly 3pm... Bathroom is really not convenient. There is not even hot water in the sink, only from the shower. If you're not lucky, your bed will be on the 8th floor where there is always someone going through. To get to the 9th floor and showers you have to go through the 8th one and disturb everybody here
I set in my capsule and went out. When I came back after one hour and a half, my capsule was brand new (sheets were changed and newly folded) and my charger and my transformer were missing. As it was 1 am, at the reception they told me no cleaning lady had been cleaning. Strange enough, my charger (or a similar one) was at the reception and I got it back while my transformer was lost. So I guess the guardian at the reception stole my transformer.
Staff were very friendly and the locker provided was the best we've had so far.
Clean bathrooms and bed. Plenty of space to store your luggage. Staff are friendly and helpful. Location is a little outside of the main tourist areas. Nice place at a good price but the lack of a lounge area to meet people is unfortunate.
It's a capsule hostel and if you keep that in mind then the facilities and general cleanliness will be a pleasant surprise. Would recommend.

Pros: Close to the subway station at Iriya. 3 grocery stores near, it's quiet, great full sized closet to hold your gear. Helpful staff with directions, good showers-never had to wait, has an elevator to every floor except the 9th. Cons: Takes two hours to get to from Narita Airport and is a pain in transfers if you have a lot of gear, Sick people, there were hackers everywhere. If people are sick they need to be made to buy a private room instead of making everyone else sick, no kitchen.
While this is a good place to get some rest before hitting nearby sites, like the Asukusa shrine, or the National museum of Tokyo, be prepared to not meet a whole lot of people in this place. There isn't really anywhere to meet people in the hostel, so you will need to take to the street to find other backpackers or locals with whom you want to hang out. Still a good place to recover for a few days after a heavy party hostel.
The capsule room and private locker is good, but there is no kitchen here, the staff was not kindness, the room in 8th floor was so chill, maybe there's no heater.
Only one stop away from Ueno. Facilities and atmosphere were lacking but to be expected from a capsule hotel rather than a hostel. Otherwise, I enjoyed my stay and thought it was very good value for money in Tokyo.
This is not a hostel! It's a capsule hotel! And it's hell!! There is not even a single chair in the whole place or any other possibility to simply sit down. Oh yes: On the toilet. The "lobby" has a couple of square meters with a reception desk and washing and drying machines. Than you take an elevator to your capsule. The "matress" in it consists of the cheapest foam you can imagine and is about 3cm "thick". Which means the feel is close to that as if you slept on concrete.
