First time in capsule accommodation. Definitely an experience travellers should try in Tokyo! The public bath and sauna were fantastic. WiFi in rooms. Friendly staff. Met some great people here. Good location - right near station, though a little difficult to find for the first time - look for the burger king. Biggest drawback was that the place stank like... More

Nice location with easy access to public transport (JR-station, subway), supermarkets, ATM, etc. Capsule itself was clean and definitely worth a try but WiFi worked only in "common room". Nice and helpful staff, female Onsen (japanes bathroom) was very good but female bathroom in 6th floor was poor. Only one (of two) toilette was working and one sink was broken.... More

Stayed here for a few nights while travelling in Tokyo. The location is good, being not too far from Kinshichou station, which if you're using a JR rail pass you can get anywhere in the city from. The hostel itself was a bit grim though - really just quite run down and neglected.For the price you're paying it's not too... More

Solo trip, booked 1 night on a female-only floor for the experience. It was much better than I expected. As I'm a pretty small person who really enjoys sleeping in cosy little spaces, the pods were a perfect size for me. I can sit up right with no trouble. You are given a locker key, blanket, yukata, belt, and face... More

Got there in the morning and the place was closed until four in the afternoon. Having to spend the whole day in the city with luggage wasn't our plan. Luckily an old lady helped us getting in touch with staff who just happened to walk around outside and they gladly took care of our things. Nice job, bad policy (not... More

This was a great experience (first time in a capsule hotel). The sauna and the hot, hot, hot bath was awesome and I loved it so much. The staff were kind and helpful. The only thing that was not superb was that the lockers are tiny (could only fit my jacket and smallest handbag in there), so I had my... More

This was my first stay in a capsule hotel. I am a female and I went with another female so we stayed on the female floor in capsules next to each other. It was not very crowded. The capsule bed itself was very hard and it was very cold at night. The elevator smelled heavily of smoke. The onsen was... More

For a traveller keen to experiment all that is local, a trip to Tokyo must include at least one night at a capsule hotel. For this exact reason, during a recent business trip to Tokyo I decided to give it a go for one night, before moving in into a more appropriate hotel. Capsule Inn Kinshicho is probably as average...

It might not be the very best idea to type this review right now.. I'm currently lying in one of the capsules with a bit of jetlag. It is 2:30 AM and because of a large number of loudly snoring men around me I can't sleep on this extremely thin madras.. They not only snore some have vivid and bad... More

I was very happy here, the capsules did get a little warm at night with the curtain closed but that was my only concern. The staff are great, the sauna and bathrooms were good. This is one of the only capsule hotels that will allow women there. There amenities are a bit more restrictive than the mens though.
