The hostel was too cold


83%

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.


80%

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.

So far this the best capsule hotel that I had ever stayed. Most of the staffs (especially the receptionist) can speak English. Even though there are also some staffs couldn't speak English, they are very friendly & try to find a way to help their customers. The sleeping area is very neat and tidy, while the toilet and bathroom are very clean. I saw many foreigners stayed in the hotel, including from the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong etc. so I assume this place is foreigner-friendly.

Though its lacks the congenial atmosphere and comforts of a hostel, this basic capsule hotel is well designed and spotless. It's a bit monastic but the formula works. It is not cramped and the bathrooms are fine. Great value in Japan.

Great Value, friendly staff, close to train station (5 minute walk). The capsules are more spacious and cozy than you would imagine. I turned mine into a comfortable nest, was sad to leave. Recommend it.

Being the first time in Japan, I found it quite difficult navigating to this spot, it's somewhat near a residential street and behind the main street, but it was worth it! It's really easy after you walk around a bit, it's actually close to a lot of good spots to explore that you wouldn't even know.

I stayed here once before you can ask Mr.Sleepyhead at the front desk. That being said guess who got a discount. Me and BIG G. Cheers for that. Ever put on your shoes while standing on a matchbox? You can try at this hostel. That being said the front entrance is like a entrance to a mouse house. That being said .

Great budget option. Very clean and relatively close to metro. Only problem is that the mattress is almost non existent. Dont expect a very comfy bed.


94%

Good if you need a clean place to crash, shower, use internet, or ask about tourist attractions. No knowledge of japanese is necessary but it always recommended (at least have google translate on your smartphone).

Nothing really wrong with this hostel. Hot showers, good internet, and very clean. Showers and toilets had no soap/ shampoo so you could not even wash your hands after the toilet. Little tricky to find this place. Wouldn't stay here again nor would I recommend it. My back was sore on the third day from sleeping

They're called capsules but they don't feel too small at all. I loved the place. Quiet, clean, nice staff, and 24 info desk. Huge closet for all your stuff. Barely anyone was there in late Jan. I would highly recommend.
