Great value for money, even cheaper when booking thru hostel world. Small spaces to move around the only 2 problems I face (and that was just my luck since I changed rooms and I was happy) the top capsule guy was snoring and the capsule amplified it so the whole capsule vibrated, lucky reception works 24/7 woohoo, the second is the mattress was a bit Mouldy, but when I changed rooms it was clean so I guess it's a one off thing. Other than that, the train station is very close 5 minutes walking.

i have been to a few capsules, but i like this place concept. its pigeonhole style where the capsule entry is no on same side for everyone. And it has large locker too. Toilets are clean, and have few of em (no nee to queue long) Aside from the roof, theres no other common area. Staff speaks english which is good. Would be great if theres a small bench/table at the lobby/receptionist so we can sit while waiting for laundry and also to sit while chatting w/ staff.


A little far from the station, but all things considered it's a affordable, nice place to stay. Very nice showers and spacious locked closets for your luggage. Four outlets in my unit for charging electronics-two in my capsule and two in the closet-made it easy to recharge my camera, portable WiFi and Laptop. An enjoyable capsule hotel experience!


Very clean and spacious capsules. Also the bath areas are very clean. The lounge area is small, and i should suggest a little kitchen and to hang out aside from the cold rooftop.


Extremely clean when compared to western hostel standards. Fantastic shower cubicles with complete privacy. The capsules also very clean and the corridor outside also very clean, Imagine a several bunk dorm but with more privacy since you have your own capsule, and alot cleaner. The rooftop was nice. In addition to the capsule you have your own, lockable little storage cubicle. Overall you felt really comfortable staying there. Value money indeed.

English speaking staff, very friendly. I ended up staying 2 extra nights. About 15 to 20 min walk from jr station. Bring ear plugs if your a light sleeper because its a capsule hotel.


Great capsule hostel for the money. The only problem we had was most of the time there was no one behind the reception counter. Other than that great stay. Cheap


Great service with so helpful hostel staff.

I encountered 2 staff members. One spoke English pretty well but sometimes needed a little help understanding from the other who's English was good enough to avoid confusion. Both were very friendly. My capsule was clean and came with a sizeable closet that could locked so I felt my stuff was safe. When you close the curtain in the small door it's completely private, which is nice. The wifi is kinda weak and there's no computers available.


Turns out "coffin hotels" aren't weird, they're just a shared bunkbed dorm where you actually get walls around your bunk for privacy and noise isolation! It's great! And rather than the tiny chintzy lockers most hostels have for your stuff, these guys give you an entire closet! Huge! It's not a social place, but that's not what I was looking for, so it was great. Wifi / internet is fast & reliable.


beautiful price and location is very good


Great place to stay in Tokyo. Great value for money and friendly staff. Not only for short term (I ended up staying a week). So, if you're looking for a cheap accommodation in this great town and don't need the hostel atmosphere then this is it.


Not a particularly nice place to stay. If you stay at this hostel it's unlikely you will interact with any other guests because of the layout and lack of common room.


This is probably the best capsule hotel i've stayed at. Good, clean accomodation and as 'private' as possible. Very friendly staff members who will point you in the right directions and even sometimes do a little extra because they can. It's close to a big supermarket and close to a metro station. Ueno is a 20 ish minute walk, and it's only going straight for 20mins. Stayed here for 9 nights instead of the planned 8 and i'd go again.


Staff was friendly and helpful even though some of them doesn't understand English. The capsule was clean and more spacious than I thought. Also have a nice open garden on rooftop. 5 minutes walk from "Iriya" Metro Station.


It is definitely worth experiencing capsule hostels, especially this one! The manager and all staff were so friendly and helpful! I saw it as incredible value for money given the fact that you have the whole of Tokyo to explore, you only need a bed to sleep in-that is what 1980 hotel provides - also the Wifi is brilliant! I uploaded 10minute YouTube videos in under 15 minutes! Thank you to the staff for the fantastic work!


A good hostel, met some great people, helpful and polite staff, security was quite good. Beds a little stuffy but no problem. Short walk to the train station.


Great place,pods were spacious,clean. The lockers were the size of a largecupboard. Very cheap, no common area though so hard to meet people. Take advantage of the roof area, great views and I had a few BBQ's up there and drinks. Thats how I met other people. I arrived at 1am and took me an hour to find even though only 5mins from metro. Use exit 4 and then turn back on yourself so station is now behind you. Walk (5mins) till you get to a 'P' sign (parking) take the first left and then right!


Definitely get what you pay for....
