This capsule hotel impressed us a lot, they have a nice Japanese bath in the basement which helps to relax after a long day. The American quarter is one of the best spots to be in Osaka. Especially at night there are a lot of things to see! We enjoyed it a lot.

My first and only capsule hotel experience. It was pretty cool. The capsule isn't that small. It's feels like sleeping on the bottom bunk but it's actually bigger than the average bunk bed. The bathing facilities were great. The lounge area would have been better without all the smoking but it was alright. Be prepared to dump a lot of money into the dryers. The WiFi is excellent but only available in the lounge (basement). It was a pretty fun experience overall. I'd stay again. Perfect location.

If this is your only chance to try a capsule hotel (I.e you are female or only staying on Osaka) then definitely go here. If not, then maybe look for other options. The place is still good but not for more than a couple of nights max. The cigarette smell is everywhere. It's a little dark and dated. And true to the nature of a capsule hotel, you will feel isolated if you're a solo traveller. There are much nicer capsule hotels out there

I have lived in more than 40 hostels. This is the worst hostel I have lived. The staffs were quite unfriendly and difficult to communicate. You have to change the locker key and shoes key every time when you enter and exit. No wifi in the capsule room. For big luggage, you have to pay 200yen per day to store it. Some capsules do NOT have plug to charge your mobile phone and the staff didn't tell me in advance. Really bad experience.

Staff were very difficult to communicate with. Annoying with receipts and key exchanges on entry/exiting hotel during stay. ONLY public bathing facilities. People coming in all through the night... Quite noisy. Would not stay here again

The basement where the women rooms are were very warm, but once you got into your capsule room, there was sufficient air conditioning. The English translations on the inside of the capsule were hilarious! I hope they never change.

The only negative point is regarding the atmosphere, but because of obvious reasons: it is a capsule hotel! individual cubicules, and the common areas are more silent and introspective that in other "normal" hostels. If you want action, you can always go outside, since it is located in one of the most vibrant areas of Osaka. I would definitely recommend for a night!

The lockers are extremely far from the rooms, a whole floor / floor(s) apart. And to take a shower you need to go all the way to the basement. which is 2 floors down from the reception. These aren't regular shower rooms, they are onsens, which are public baths. WiFi is also available ONLY in the basement, not even in the lobby. People are also often smoking in the basement where WiFi is provided The location is excellent.

My first and last night in a capsule hotel. For Japanese standards the staff was quite rude. One tried to shortchange me at the checkin. It's normal making misstakes, but at the evening I bought a drink in their restaurant from a vending machine of the hotel. I was sitting at a table in an almost empty (one client) restaurant. I was scared away from my table like a child and had to sit at another table. Wifi is only in the basement of the hotel and lockers are at least one floor below.

Directions on hostel world are misleading, google your route.

A little cold and utilitarian... But it's a capsule hotel, so what can you expect? Was surprised at how big, and comfortable the place was. Well located, in the center of everything.

it's clean. but there's no none-smoking wifi area. this is really bad for those who don't smoke.

Just 1 night is enough for the experience. Bed wasnt too clean, had few strands of hair. There's only a curtain at the "entrance" of your bed. So I could hear people talking, packing, and even one who was drinking water -.- Woke up in the middle of the night several times. But it was interesting! Open concept bath room & coffin style bed (space to sit up). Could only keep your bags in the locker provided or if your luggage is too big then you could keep it with the reception at 200 yen for 24hr.

If you really want to experience a capsule hotel, stay one night then go somewhere else. Only curtains divide you from your 400 closest friends, so loud snorers/early alarms make sleeping difficult. The bathrooms are dirty, but there is an onsen in the basement which is quite good. You have to store your stuff in lockers, which are opened every morning by staff to put a new robe in, so if you don't trust the staff with your valuables don't stay here.

Openly rude staff and an unfriendly feel.

It was your standard capsule hotel, the staff was helpful. Overall no complaints, I would go back again.

the security is good, the location is easy to reach. everything is great. though for some foreigners it is quite a new experience to have a bath and shower naked in a shared bathroom. but well,, i think knowing other country's culture won't hurt. in the other hand it gives a new experience to me and my friends. i think i will visit this hotel again if i visit osaka next time.
