So quiet I had the best sleep and an amazing nap. Nice enough area. LOVED the sauna and warm plunge pool. Near an internet cafe. Everyone spoke english. Women only floor made a nice change from hostels and so many things for me to use like makeup remover and straighteners and cotton bud. If you are going to stay in a capsule hotel this is the one to go for. I want to go back as its oddly much nicer than sleeping in a bunk bed as it feels like a private room. All japanese girls were very sweet.
The location is good. But the rooms and amenities are a tad old. The toilet in the rooms are filthy. The capsule itself should be called a time capsule because you'll feel you're back in the 90s. No power plugs in the capsule though, which is a hassle. It's redeeming factor is that it has an old-school public bath house. I can only recommend staying here for one night for the experience.
Classic capsule hotel experience. It's not a hostel vibe but still something you should try while in Japan. The facility is older but immaculately clean and not too far from the subway. Comfortable nights rest :)
Really good place in capsule style. And for ladies also :) Good capsule experience for backpackers and great location, close to JR Station. Staff good, speak english. I recommend for shure. A litle bit old facilities.
Convinient location, easy to find. Capsules are spacious with plenty of room to sit up! Would like to seal off capsule at night to block noise from loud sleepers! We enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others visiting Tokyo.
Very nice place, the staff is helpful, the capsule inn is very close to the subway station and to many typical japanese restaurants, the capsule itself is something you want to try at least one night

I really enjoyed the public bath, I even miss it now. This is my first experience of a capsule hotel, and it was very positive.
The location was good. The Tokyo Skytree was 20 min away on foot. It was very close to the train station as well. Many restaurants in the area. The staff was very friendly. Good internet connection as well. They have separate floors for women and men. The bathrooms are separate as well, but it's more like a common shared space with showers, a small pool and sauna.

This was my first capsule experience and first stay in Tokyo. Location was convenient to get the rail system. quiet area. can walk to Skytree, etc. the bathing facilities were a fun experience. saw a few very friendly yakuza. due to flights i didn't get in until about 7am at the end of the first night of my reservation. the staff allowed me to go sleep anyway, which can be an issue with capsules due to cleaning, so it was nice.
The staff was very helpfull by a major problem. They saved my vacation.
I really enjoyed the onsen style bathing area. Very relaxing and a nice end to the day.
The stay was better than I expected. The capsules are relatively spacious (although, maybe I am not very tall to judge). It was just a bit warm in the capsule. The bathroom was clean. I really liked the hot Japanese style bath. It was very relaxing after long days of walking. I just wish there would be also instructions in English. Smoking is allowed in one area. I thought the smell would be worse but it was ok.
I really enjoyed my stay at the Capsule inn. The staff was friendly and willing to help. It was such an interesting and unique experience to stay here. There is a wonderful sauna downstairs- showers, and sauna that you can relax in after a long day of exploring Tokyo.
One of the few places really for travelers in Tokyo. But there should be more restrooms and a place to smoke, not inside the building.
A traditional Japanese Capsule hotel that has opened its doors to backpackers. My issues. No charge sockets, forced to leave my laptop out in the hallway to charge it in the wall. No private showers, public bathing with middle aged business men. Over priced, cheaper and better is available in Tokyo. Wifi was very bad unless downstairs in the reception. Not very well located. Small lockers, large enough to fit a suit on a hanger but nothing else. No atmosphere.
Good location right in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of Kinshicho. Walking distance to Tokyo Skytree. If you want to experience staying in a capsule hostel I recommend this one for an interesting experience. I wouldn't want to stay for multiple nights however as the beds are very uncomfortable. Staff could also be friendlier.
Nice location with easy access to public transport, supermarkets, ATM, etc. Capsule itself was clean and definitely worth a try but WiFi worked only in "common room". Nice helpful staff, Onsen very good but bathroom in 6th floor was poor. Only one toilette working and one sink broken. Only 3 power sockets (and 2 of them in the bathroom) for maybe 20 people. No kitchen, only warm water boiler which also provided black
Excellent service. The staff is bilingual, always willing to help out and give recommendations, and the free towel service is incredibly welcome (considering that the price of a bed is not that high).
