Anyone lookin to have a time this is prolly not that place haha but in all honesty, great clean place, Internet, nice capsule bed, a big hot, hot tub, and strange cool showers, very good for the price. Thanks okachimachi hostel for a great experience
Nothing wrong here. You get a small but decent room with your own tiny bathroom. Staff does not speak English but are very nice. You get exactly what you paid for: a place to stay at a convenient location and that is great value.
This place was quite disappointing. Upon arriving to the location. I saw multiple cockroaches scurrying about the lobby floor. After waking up and sliding into the hallway. I discovered a disgusting rash on my arm, which has still not gone away days later. Factor in the cost of a doctor when going here, or just stay away.

It was pretty much perfect for what we needed. Very clean and great value for money, also excellent locqtion. I would recommend to anyone looking for a place in central Tokyo they just want to use for sleeping. Only tiny problems were that it was a bit smoky and the pillows were very uncomfortable. But its a great place for the price!

It was a capsule hotel. Not very good for meeting other travellers. A lot of Japanese business men. There was smoking on the floor and that wasn't very nice to sleep in. There are only public Japanese style baths which is fine... Just be aware :) Basic and good location.
Staff were not so friendly. Major issue was even though checkout time is 10 AM like everywhere else, showers close at 8 AM. Not so convenient. No explanation was given to me. Actually I don't dislike capsule hotels, but this one is not worth the price. Ah, only good point, the capsule was very wide.
Good hotel that is very close to transport connections. Room was just big enough. Shower was quite small though.
The staff are very helpful and friendly, speaking basic English. Very helpful with adding extra nights to stay. It had all what you need, with free wifi. It's close to eating places, Electric City where all the gadgets are. Ueno is close with a lovely park area. Tokyo station is not far, a few stops. Also a post office is 1min around the corner for cash widrawlls etc. Especially if you only have MasterCard cards. I would look into your card provider, as visa is mostly accepted. Stay Double room.
Although it is relatively cheap, the stay is not pleasant at all. The hostel does not support VISA for the payment as described, I have to pay with cash. The air conditioner for the room is not able to cool down the room even in one hour, and the TV cannot be turned on. The room does not have locker or fridge, and the toilet is the smallest toilet I have ever seen. My stay in a capsule hotel for 3200 yen is much better than the stay in this hostel.
Pros: 2min walk from the Naka-okachimachi station and 10min walk from the JR Okachimachi Station. Loads of food options nearby, including a great soba place that opens at about 7am in the morning. 10min walk from Ameyoko-cho. Computers with internet available in lobby. Cons: Very very small hotel room, typical of business hotels in Tokyo. Washroom is really small, little space to maneuver around while showering. No atmosphere to speak of, since it's a hotel.
good stay, one of the easier going capsules I've seen. Never had any issues with staff. only annoying thing is they like you to leave between 10-4 so they can clean, but that's normal for a day-to-day capsule.
Nice place to stay. Good location. Not expensive.
Good hotel for one or two nights as the rooms are small, but you get all you need (towels, toothbrush, razor, soap, tea, hot water, ...) . Even if the staff speaks only few English, it's enough for the check in/out. Also, we found the staff very friendly. Good location (close to a JR Station and subway, few minutes by walk from Akihabara, lot of restaurant near by).
Clean, friendly, outstanding location. Functioning Japanese helps but the staff made an effort to speak English. Did I mention clean? Very clean. Very close to JR and Oedo rail lines. Easy walk to Ueno station. Bars, restaurants, grocery store, shopping district all within easy walking distance. Ensuite room had a tiny bathroom. Comically small for a 6' 250lb person. But for the price this place cannot be beat! Would definitely stay here again for cheap convenient digs in Tokyo.

PRO: The location is great. Very close to JR and Metro stations. The price for the capsule is decent. CON: No shower, only public bath for men. No separate room for smoking. The whole section hosting the capsules smell like cigarette. Key for the safe box has to be left at the reception when going out.
Capsule hotel! I prefer hostel style places but this was fine. Not great for meeting others but that's what going out is for. Cool experience. Power in the capsule. Along with your own in-capsule safe!
The single room hotel is amazing for the price. YOu get air con, a TV ensuite with towels and free wifi for a little more compared to living in a dorm. Fully functional hotel.
