- First of all, the location is crazy great that in the down town. - For hygiene is not good and can smell the bad smells from the carpet. For bathing area is nice but not really good as you bath with other customers. - For the room, that is quite nice and clean, but only one device can charge... More

Ok, so I stayed in a kennel. It really wasnt bad. In fact it was quite interesting. As far as the facility goes, it covers all the basics. You get a locker for your shoes, another locker for your stuff, and a place to sleep. There is a a common area for bathing, also interesting. My first time to take... More

It was my second time at this capsule hotel, the location is good if you want to stay in Shinjuku and its great value for money in Tokyo. Despite only having a capsule size 'room', the stay was again very comfortable. It's quiet at night as everyone is very respectful and the capsule and bathroom incl a sauna are clean.... More

A clean hostel, it was an interesting experience but I wouldn't stay for longer than a night. It's only a block away from Shinjuku's main red light district, and probably closer to a 10 min walk from the station (not 4 as stated on their website). There are blinds on each capsule for privacy but it does not block out... More

If you want the capsule experience in Tokyo I would highly recommend this place. I've split my review into the hotel itself and the general rules when staying, and secondly how to find it as its tucked away. 1) I stayed 1 night which I think is enough to get the experience. I don't think this is a place you... More

This was my first experience in a capsule hotel. As I made a late reservation in Tokyo, the only budget solutions left were a few capsule accomodation and I chose this hotel as it was strategically located in the trendy Shinjuku district and also a 5-minute walk only from railway station. The hotel was very clean, check-in staff non that... More

This is a big capsule hotel, with a more modern style. They have a common area and large baths (Onsen style). If you want to stay more than one night they have some pretty weird rules. You need to be out of your capsule at 11.00 (or something like that), and then check in again later on. The place is... More

Stayed here for one night on 12th April. One night was enough. Hotel is a little hard to find. Once you enter, take off your shoes, put them in the locker and give the key to the front desk, they will give you a locker key and a bed number. Putting on the robe is not required and only there...

I found the mattress to be too thin and could feel the bottom of the capsule. I used the blanket as extra padding. The pillow was so flat you had to fold it in half just to get any support. Getting there. I went to Shinjuku station. Take exit B10. At the top of that exit turn around until you... More

I stayed here for one night (Thursday) as a Western solo female traveler in my late 20s. Don't be put off by the red light district comments, the few strip bars nearby are barely noticeable, especially if you return from the metro via the main road. I felt safe around here alone at night. The women's floor is located on... More
