If you are interested in experiencing a capsule hotel in Tokyo this is certainly a good one. The location is excellent, some 20 meters from the exit of subway station Asakusa (very well connected to the rest of the city). The capsules are comfortable and clean, don´t expect too much though. The only inconvenience is that you have to pay every time you open and close the locker where you leave your bulky luggage.

the capsule inside is a bit warm and air conditioning is not very well..but in general the hotel is super value for money and excellent located ! you will have a view of the skytree and asahi building and the river as well. Wish the shower is available 24 hrs tho...

The most important thing you have to know is that there is no space for luggage. There are lockers in the common room on the 2nd floor which cost 300 yen for 12 hours. I slept with my backpack in the capsule, that is possible but if you have more luggage than a backpack it might be "cosy". For the rest it is ok, there is wireless in the common room, a hot bath and you get a pyjama and fresh sheets and towels every day. It was a nice experience.

Got into Tokyo exhausted at midnight - this capsule hotel was perfect for what I needed. 24 hour reception meant getting there late was no problem, the capsule itself was clean and plenty of space. Hard to find capsule hotels for women. Location is great, I love Asakusa district and this hostel is right by the river, above the subway station, and very close to Senso-ji on one side and the Asahi brewery on the other. Communal areas a bit seedy and dirty, bath closes at 9am.

Basic, but good for budget travellers. didn't find much to do nearby at night but it was convenient for train. the bathing area had a nice view of the sky tree and the river. there is a nice park to take a walk and see the sky tree lighting up at night. would stay again.

Not a place to stay if you want to meet others.

The staff is not welcoming at all and toi have to pay for lockers. However the location is amazing and the price is ridiculusly low for what you get

Capsules did not lock, so anyone could take your things any time. No plug either so you cannot charge your devices. The whole place looks like it stopped in the 80's. Dark and dirty. They also charge 400 yen each 12 hours for holding your bag, and if you open it you have to pay again. No kitchen for guests. Worse hostel experience I had in Japan. Good only for sleeping if you have to sleep close to narita and can't find anywhere else.

The capsule was a little bit dirty, the enclosure for the TV had been removed, and it was filled with dust and a few pieces of garbage. I asked for a different capsule and got it, the enclosure wasn't there either, but it was cleaner.

VERY VERY BAD

The stay was OK, but the staff was not very sympathetic.

Just FYI: smoking is permitted in the lobby and common rooms. I found that bothersome, as I couldn't escape the second-hand smoke while checking in or using the on-site computer. Don't expect to be able to charge any electronic devices in your capsule-only some have outlets. The capsules don't lock, so expect to leave your valuables in a coin locker on site or sleep with everything in your capsule with you.

It was very old, but for the price and location is ok. Not many people stay there or at least it was my impression when I was there (about 4 people on a huge room) All of them were foreigners. The view is amazing!!

I do not have anything bad to say about this place. I used it as a place to sleep and nothing more. It was excellent at what it is meant to do -- giving you a place to sleep. Excellent price and the actual capsules themselves were quite comfortable. Just depends on who is also there when you are. The travellers that were there when I was were amazingly respectful.

It was a great experience spend two nights in this Capsule Hotel.

Very nice staff, helpful. Also, the second floor public area has some nice tables and sofas so you can relax a bit and have a place to eat something you bring in. I was not bothered by the shared bath, but some people might be, so a fair warning: yes the bath is completely public, no walls or anything to separate you from anyone else. The bath facilities are very clean and the water is nice. (one bath area for men, other for women).

すごく汚かったです。銭湯の壁天井で黴が付いてて、ほとんどの布団は生理の血に汚れて、毎日もらったスリッパは臭くて、汗に濡れていました。汚いほど我慢できなくて、早くチェックアウトしました。でもその日フロントは何も聴いてくれませんでした。日本では最悪ホテルの経験でした。 Bath ceiling and walls had mold, almost all of the futon are stained with period blood, and everyday the slippers I wore stank and were greasy with someone else's sweat. It was so disgusting I checked out early but on the day I did they didn't ask me anything and said I couldn't get a refund because I paid with credit card. Worst hotel experience in Japan.
