The hostel was great, it's location was spectacular for me, someone whose main goal was to visit akihabara which was less than a 10 min train raid for about a buck 60.

lockers really too small and in a different place/floor si everyone keep his luggage near the capsule. Near the station but the aren't a lot to do in the area but it's OK. There wasn't any plug in our capsule so you should find it for example un the living room. The floor ils really ugly so I recommand you to wear the green or pink shoes . One hand soap for everyone. A bit pricey (if you dont book and arrive late it's cheaper) I think but maybe worth to go only for one night.

The hostel has a japanese style bathroom, which for me was not a problem. Since i am not shy to be naked in front of other people, but i thought this should me mentioned. Cleanliness is average, beds are clean but the corridors aren't. good part is they are 24 hour open. Biggest set back is that you can not find a outlet in your capsule so i have to plug your staff in the outlet, which you find in the corridor. The security is good, nothing was stolen during my stay.

It is a low budget capsule hotel but it gave me a very good overall impression. A little old but clean enough to feel ok.

Ben situat, a tres parades de la Tokyo st. Genial els banys que tenen. No tenen ordinador per consultar internet. El que hi ha no funciona. Bona tria per passar pocs dies o de pas per la ciutat. Locker room molt petit i poc utilitzable.

There is an onsen and sauna available free if charge in the hostel.

Clean and tidy, if a somewhat old building that needs some overall care and attention. Lockers are provided, but they're located quite a distance from your capsule, which isn't ideal. Staff all spoke English, and were really helpful. Location-wise, it's fairly central; close to Kinshichō Station, which can put you into the town centre in minutes.

More capsules than lockers so had to leave my valuables just lying in the corridor. Communal showers which some may not like. A long way out from the cities main attractions but close enough to Metro station.

easy to find, very close to JR station if you plan to travel around the city more than staying in the hostel it's a very good choice

I think this is a great place to get a true capsule inn experience! The area is not very busy, but it is very close to Kinshichou station and the Skytree. I met some very great people at this hostel and was always given fresh towels and yukatas free of charge. This hostel's bathroom is basically a traditional public bath house with a traditional onsen feel. It is a great ice-breaker to Japanese onsen culture. I suggest it to everyone!

The best capsule |'ve stayed in, would stay here again.

Different experience from a "backpacker's" hostel. Women's floor is secure and quite clean. WC and sinks are little worse for wear but adequate. Lockers are tall and very narrow. Hard futon, but good sleep. Each capsule has curtain for privacy. Best part is the bath house in the lower level. Hot rocks sauna, sit down showers and soaking tub. The hotel provides fresh yukata and belt daily, and towels. Excellent location, lots of good eating places, shops and 2 train stations. I liked it a lot.
