The hosts were brilliant with helping you find your way, giving you advice on where to go/what to eat and making you feel welcome. The hostel was clean. Highly recommend borrowing the bikes at the hostel and riding around to get a view of Mt Fuji.

The hostel is very well located and organised. We enjoyed the overall experience, it has everything on hand including breakfast and charging places with extra costs, which is acceptable. Most of the staff members are nice but a couple of males wearing glasses could work on their service a bit. They were kind of harsh with customers, which is very unsual for Japan.

it's nice on everything,the only inconvenience thing is that you can't connect wifi in you capsule, and actually I didn't really have chances using their WIFI in those 3 days, but i'm willing to stay there again next time.

Great stay in a really central, interesting location. Staff were helpful, facilities were great, very cheap for such a central location, and impeccably clean. Would recommend, especially as it's such a cool experience staying at a capsule hotel!

Everything was great except for two things : smoking in the relaxation room wasn't nice for non-smokers - maybe they could have a separate area? And it was SO hot in the women's floor.

It's a nice place and good location near Namba,Dotonbori and America Mura.

On the plus side, it was a fun experience to try out a capsule hotel in Japan and hotel is close to Namba. A few negatives... 1. Directions to the hotel are extremely vague and hard to follow especially if you arrive in the dark 2. WiFi is only available in the basement floor, so not convenient for planning 3. Cannot use a JR pass to get to/from the Hotel unless using a very roundabout route 4. Locker is too small to fit a backpack, and you are charged 200 yen to store it elsewhere

One should be able to close the capsule properly in order to avoid the noise of the other visitors like annoying alarm clocks etc. I woke up several times unfortunately.

Awesome stay! It's more like a spa retreat than anything else. For a backpacker this is a MUST! Coolest placed I've ever stayed at

A true capsule experience. Nice public bath included as well

The capsule hotel was a highlight in our trip to Japan. It is so novel to sleep in little capsules and we adored the 24 hour onsen-style bathrooms with all the trimmings such as conditioner and razors to use. The beds are very hard here and you have to keep all your belongings in a locker which may be on a different floor to the bathrooms. Overall though the novelty more than made up for the quirks.

I liked staying in the capsule hotel overall. The only thing I would change is people talking in the capsules -- one girl was talking on the phone from 11 pm - 3 am very loudly.

My capsule was fine, it had a tv and a socket to charge my phone, however my friends did not. A bit hard to find but once found its a good location with plenty bars and restaurants around. you have to leave your key when you go out so effectively they could go in your locker but maybe that's me being paranoid. Overall, glad I stayed.

I'm from Korea so I'm used to facilities like this, where there's public bath houses i.e. jimjilbangs, saunas, etc. I actually wish we had these capsule hotels in Korea. It's great for a quick stop, especially if you have an early flight. Accommodations are convenient and clean.

A bit difficult to find even with clear directions but well worth the stay. Super comfey, quiet and low key capsule Hotel. Only improvement needed is having hand soap available in the bathrooms.

We stayed with a family. I didn't like the fact that our children were able to watch porn movies in their capsules. The staff should have told us or given us capsules without television.
