Hot temperature in the capsule area, no air conditioner around there.

There was smoke in every area of the hostel including non smoking areas, including the womens capsules which were non smoking. There were loud guests that played music in the capsules late at night and packed luggage/ rattled food wrappers until 4 am. I paid for 3 nights but left after the first night. I'm disgusted. I should be refunded the money for such a disgraceful situation.

To obtain the best of Osaka's night, this is the place to be!!! Great location and nice experience in a capsule hotel. Hot bath and sauna are a plus.

Worth of experiencing this kind of accommodation. Perfectly located, brilliant for those who look for clean and comfy place to stay only.

This is a capsule hotel not hostel, the bathroom is public bath room. The place is ok for overall.

The place was simple in the sense if you just want to sleep for night but otherwise it was pretty fussy. There was no power point in the capsule (only paid charging) but there was TV which I found no use as only Japanese programs were there. The luggage was located one floor away. Neither were the toilets so clean. No likely to recommend to someone else.

I really enjoyed this experience in a capsule hotel. Everything was included for a cheap price !

I loved this place because it felt very Japanese. It has a lot of character with the facilities downstairs that have nicotine stained walls and the communal rooms downstairs . There are a lot of areas to sit down and a room full of manga. The bathing area is great! The uniform is amazing and I brought one as a souvenir. I would definitely stay here again as it was the best capsule place that I stayed out of the two, even through the other one seemed more modern. I like the old school feel.

I enjoyed the experience and thought the other people staying there were nice. I loved the location...so hip and walkable. My main complaint is the smokey aroma, even though no smoking is allowed in the capsule room. The overall smoky smell of the place bothered my allergies.

A little difficult to find, look for the inflatable sign that reads ; Capsule. Women's floor has everything you need! Such as a make up room with hair dryer, cotton wool mirrors etc. In your locker are some Japanese style pajamas and a bunch of towels, a fresh sponge. Also in the bathroom are more lockers, toothbrushes, razors, shampoo, conditioner, bodywash etc. The sauna and hottub is small but clean. Female and mixed common living areas. Good location between 3 subway stations.

A great location and place to stay if you are in the Dontombori area and looking to get the Japanese capsule experience. The public areas were smoky, but the women's facility were quiet, clean, and secure. Some staff spoke great English while others did not. Overall, it was an awesome experience in Japan!

This is a no-frills Capsule hotel, not a traditional hostel. Everything is an extra charge, you have public changing rooms with lockers, no private areas (and gender separated, which is a pro or con, depending on who you are). The Spa (onsen) was nice enough, but there was a chunk of feces on the floor in the bathroom there, for hours, one night. The beds themselves are clean, and the wifi (lobby only) is usually good. Location is fantastic. Traditional hostels, though, are cheaper and better...

The toilets are very small and not very clean. Have limited power outlets to charge devices.

Female capsule nice and clean. Blanket kinda thin, felt the cold. Clean onsen & sauna and dressing room. Uncomfortable to walk about bare-footed though. Smoking allowed at lobby and when I joined my boyfriend at the male+female resting lounge, it was filled with cigarette smell as most men were smoking in the lounge, very uncomfortable for non-smokers.

The Capsule Hostel was what it promised. An inexpensive opportunity to sleep in an expensive country! However, I did not expect the pool, the bath, the whirlpool and the sauna. I spent the nights more in the bath than in my capsule! I liked it soooo much,

This was a decently indecent facility. Smoking indoors is allowed and although the sleeping area is nonsmoking, it still reeks of cigarettes. Staff were less than welcoming. Highly regret staying here.

Pros: * Great location in downtown Osaka * Cheap price (not as cheap as a hostel) * The in-house sento bath is pretty good * Interesting experience * Efficient shoe and personal locker system (large enough for backpack) Cons: * Its a capsule hotel so LOTS of people coming and going at 3 am * Only curtains and thin walls so you can hear everything * Thin slightly sticky mattress

It's a capsule hotel ! If you know what that entails, this place is great.

Not somewhere I'd recommend for westeners. The lack of showers was okay as the public bath is part of the experience, but there was no working internet at all, had to make a trip to starbucks to book the next hostel, and the staff that I dealt with were fairly blunt and rude considering how expensive the bed was.
