It's a capsula so the atmosphere is out of question. The capsulas are pretty good as elsewhere. Internet is perfect. It has a nice little onsen. The place provides you with everything. I didnt like the fact that you had to remove the things from your locker when you stay for more than 1 night and leave them downstairs (even though in Japan that might works). Good place to stay and not to far from the train/metro station.
The staff was kind of unfriendly and you cannot call it a hostel. For one night it's ok, but not longer. You can't meet people there
difficult to sleep due to noise and heat. about 30 capsules on each floor; each capsule's "door" is actually just a curtain, like a straw mat that rolls down. you can hear everyone making noise throughout the night. despite it being winter, it was very warm inside the capsule (while reasonably cool in the room itself). no way to adjust the temperature. also, all guests have to leave the hotel from 11AM to 3PM and the only place to store large luggage is near the front desk in a large pile
Place is clean staff is friendly and the place is a bargain. Pretty close to the major stations. You can't get a roof over your head for much cheaper than this, it fits your basic needs.
Capsule hotel. Good wifi on every floor. Have to checkout at 11 am, then back in at 3 pm even if you're staying there more than one night. Front desk wouldn't give me the hostelworld rate without a reservation, even though it would have saved them money. I sat in the lobby and booked it for that night in front of them. Japanese customs, so you have to know that. Communal bath area. Very clean. Good signs in English everywhere. Check out the lounge on the 5th floor.
This is an excellent option if you want to experience a Japanese Capsule style hotel! The staff was helpful and friendly, however keep in mind that this hotel is not oriented towards foreigners, although they have all the instructions and 'capsule hotel manners' listed out in English the staff is not able to give you good tourist advice. Also, if you are staying more than one day you'll have to remove your luggage from you locker and bring it down to the reception and re-checkin later!
It was my first experience at a capsule hotel and I already expected to have little space, but in fact I slept really well that night. There's an onsen, sauna and massage chair, which can refresh you after a tiring day. Inside the capsule there's a TV and alarm. I think this is a must for people that want different experiences!
