It took me a long time to find the directions to get here. I asked the locals around and no one knew where this place was. They provide you with pajamas, toothbrush, toothpaste, and towel. The lockers are vertical, so you can't really fit luggage there, only clothes and a small bag. You can put your luggage in your capsule and just use the curtain. No outlets in the capsule, but some in the room. Pillow and bedding was somewhat hard. I'd recommend this for the experience. Hard to meet people too
It's what I expected, only for the experience is certainly interesting but sleeping in a capsule is quite creepy. The place is weird, nobody speaks english, the corridors smell like cigarrete, there are no regular showers but only old style japanese baths, you cannot come up with shoes but they give you a very ugly, old and smelly slippers.
Brilliant capsule experience...met genuine tokyoites and very friendly travelers. Recoomened to everyone visiting the asakusa area!
Not bad, but there are no showers (only a communal bath) and baggage storage is only in payed lockers. The hotel is sign posted (at least in English) only in the back alley, so it's hard to find following the instructions.
Hostel isn't easy to find as the sign is very tiny but it really is just around the corner from Asakusa station. It was an amazing experience to stay in a capsule :) The staff is not very helpful as they don't speak any English. You can leave your luggage near your capsule but lockers cost 400 Yen per 12 hours which makes it quite expensiveto securely store things. If you've never been to a capsule hotel then do it! It's a nice experience.
