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).
