Let's cut to the chase. You can stay in Tokyo for about $22 a night. How many other places offer that? The pros of this place are the price (obviously), but the location is extremely convenient if you can walk 10 minutes to Ueno Station. As well, the amenities are far more generous than people give them credit for. The... More

The location is very good and price is very cheap, but facilities are old and minimum. For baggages, there is no free locker rooms, so you will need to pay 200JPY-500JPY per day.

I had booked a capsule online for this place. On arrival the guy at the reception was smoking. The whole place smells like old cigarette smoke and dust. At the word 'grim' in the dictionary there's a picture of this place. It was green and dark and old, as in not nice old. No english spoken at the reception -... More

I stayed in one of the single rooms (I.e. not in a capsule) on the ninth floor after arriving in Tokyo. It's easy to find and a good location. The venue is obviously quite old as the plastic interior of the bathroom has an aged look to it. They've obviously managed to keep it very clean in order for make... More

PROs: It's cheap. The location is quite good. Capsules are big enough to keep your luggage inside. It has ladies floors. CONs: It smells terribly of cigarette smoke as people smoke in the capsules (officially no smoking, though). There is almost zero air ventilation of the capsules. Expect to wake up in your own humid steam in the morning. Add... More

Yikes! I stayed in the Green Plaza previously (male only) and wanted my female friend to have a chance to stay in a capsule hotel. But this place was GRIM. Grimy, old, seedy, and with people smoking in the dorms. The type of place you'd need a shower after the shower. Zero atmosphere. Skip the "experience". It was okay for... More

If you're a solo traveler looking for a cheap room in Tokyo, this is the way to do it. There are few capsule hotels that allow females, and this one has an all-female floor! It's in the Asakusa area, which is an interesting and historic area of Tokyo. Remember, Tokyo addresses are a little difficult to find, so be sure... More

I stayed here for a night a few years ago. I booked my stay for the night of the Sumida River fireworks, so that I wouldn't have to trek all the way back to where I was staying through the hundreds of thousands of people. It turned out to be a great decision, because I was in my capsule within... More
