For those who want to stay more than one night I rally would not recomment this capsule hotel as you have to check out at 10am every day than lock your stuff in a locker (which you pay for) untill 5pm after which you can check in again. I think this is bad service quaility.
Booked here after reading lots of mixed reviews. You need to realise that this is a capsule hotel, NOT a traditional hostel. It is great if you just want a place to sleep and shower for a night or two; location is good and the sleep capsule arrangement is definitely something you should try while in Japan. If you are in Osaka for several days and want a place to meet other travellers, get advice on city attractions, and have more of a sense of community, find a hostel or guest house instead.
I was very impressed by how comfortable everything was and how many small details had been. For instance, each guest is provided with a robe and toothbrush, each capsule has its own alarm and TV, and the showers all had separate changing areas. I would definitely stay at B&S Eco Cube again.

This is one of the better capsule hotels. It's very easy to figure out the system even if you don't speak Japanese or know how capsule hotels work, so this would make a good first time experience if you want to see what it's all about. I've stayed at others where they give you multiple keys and their system takes some getting used to. Not so here, it's all pretty self-explanatory. They have free WiFi, electric outlets in your capsule, shower rooms, nothing fancy but very practical.
Even of you book two nights or more you have to check out every morning and they wake you up with the help,of a loudspeaker!
