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.

Awesome experience, very unique...a must try if you are travelling lightly! The capsule itself is very spacious and extremely clean.

The women's capsule rooms were very hot! The air conditioning system didn't seem to work. This made it difficult to sleep. In the men's room, we would advise bringing ear plugs! The location is great, but perhaps save the 'capsule hotel' experience for a different city.

About what you'd expect from a Capsule hotel.

This place was as good as it always is! Great for overnight in Osaka before or after a flight. Maybe not so good for longer stays.

A surprisingly great capsule experience. Was not expecting much when I stayed here but the capsule hotel was great! My capsule was very large (I'm 6'2") and I had more than enough room to fit inside it. The mattress is pretty thin but you get what you pay for. The lounge was very relaxing and the bath house in the hotel was quite large with a variety of different temperature baths to choose from. The fun night life of Osaka is also only a stone's throw away. Would book here again no problem!
