We really enjoyed our first stay in a capsule hotel and as it was our first night, we were pleasantly surprised to find the onsen (bathing hot pool) downstairs! Its a good value for money - and very close to the station . Emma from UK


really needs a refurbishment has paint peeling off the walls and only a few working but not nice toilets, also no where in the capsules to recharge phones etc, probably the worse place I stayed in japan. most of the staff where lovely but one I found rude and arrogant. place was well cleaned but because stuff was so old and in a poor state even after cleaners had cleaned things still looked dirty


This place is very much in need of some TLC. The staff weren't very nice, and about half the bathrooms were out of order and the ones that weren't were very dirty. There was mold in the capsule and in the bathroom and the whole place had a very bad smell.


Good place to experience the Japanese capsule inn. The place seems little outdated and it was somewhat annoying that the personal locker were located in different floor than your sleeping capsule ( in the male dorm). Bathing facilities were diverse, though, not that welcoming. You are able to use the wi-fi in the reception lounge. Staff wasn't particularly welcoming either but did their job. If you don't mind people chatting in front of your capsule trough the night, you should give it a try.


All staff is very helpful and friendly. The hostel is nearby the JR station(Kinshicho). There is many shopping mall and restaurants nearby. Also, some of the attractions can be reached by walking distance. There is no single bathroom, only open bathroom is available. Overall is good and will consider to stay at this hostel when next vist to Tokyo.


The premises was badly maintained with several toilets out of order. The capsules were in need of some TLC too. The lockers that were available were not adequate for most types of luggage. The staff were relatively friendly and helpful. The price was expensive considering what alternatives there were for the same price range but the capsule experience was good.


Although the novelty to stay in a capsule hotel was awesome - and it was pretty cool - it wasn't something I would do again. The rooms smelt musty and vaguely like cigarettes. The property was so old and the capsules were really uncomfortable to sleep in. Other than the 'once in a lifetime experience' of it - I wouldn't stay there again. It is really close to a station and the reception is 24 hours - but I'd give it a miss for more than one night.


Personal shout out to Hide-san at the reception! great guy and very helpful


It was a different experience that I enjoyed. Thank you very much.

I stayed here as a quick and cheap place to spend the night while visiting Tokyo for a weekend. Slept like a baby in my capsule, and the hot bath re-invigorated me for another day.
