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

This is the true Japanese capsule hotel experience. 4 Floors are for men only, including access to the spa where you can bathe, shower, groom and get pampered. The hotel caters mostly to Japanese business men with world travelers a close second. There isn't much privacy in these little cubes as only a semi see through bamboo curtain acts as... More

Fantastic location, 3 mins walk from Shinjuku station. It's in the red light district but it's fine it's not a red light district as you would expect in western countries. No street walkers just adult clubs around. I stayed on the women's floor #8 which had on the same floor the bathroom/toilets & a small locker, though large luggage must... More

No visit to Japan would be complete without staying at a capsule hotel, something that only Japan seem to have. Despite signs requesting patrons to be quiet, expect occasional noise from someone on a cellphone or guests talking to each other. It's not terribly noisy. Just don't expect silence throughout the entire night. I'm a light sleeper and I was... More

I chose this because I needed somewhere convenient to stay for a couple of nights at short notice - location is a priority for me and I didn't want to be stuck at a hostel way out in Asakusa. I found it via their website rather than Trip Advisor/other. I stayed on the women's only floor. The whole place has... More

Capsule Hotels in Japan are just one of those things you need to check off from your bucket list. This one in Shinjuku is "surprisingly" pleasant and comfortable to stay at. It is conveniently located within a few meters walk from popular watering holes and party hangouts. The capsule did not make me cluster phobic. There was enough room to... More

So not all capsule hotels will allow women so this is a great place for a female solo traveller to stay in. I stayed 5 nights to reduce my travelling costs but probably 2/3 nights would be better for capsule as you have to check out/in everyday which is a little inconvenient. Finding the hostel was a little tricky. I... More

This was my first Tokyo experience as well as my first capsule experience. Their website is excellent and makes it easy to check in online. Check in is a breeze, although they cannot allow you to check in before 4pm, they will let you leave your bags in a nice secure area until then. Upon check in, you are provided... More

How to get to the hostel from Shinjuku JR West Station: Walk to your left along Odakyu station for about 5 minutes past the designer label shops (Louis Vuitton, Chanel), cross a traffic signal and walk under a bridge. Turn right and walk for about 5 minutes past the very crowded strip of bars along Kabukicho. When you see a... More

1st, the sign downstairs is very inconvenience for foreigners, the English on the sign is very small. Go to 3rd floor for check in, but 1st thing when you get out of elevator, take off your shoes! Very confusing! The whole place is fairly clean, locker is small but they do have place for suitcase. Front desk staffs are not... More
