My friend and I stayed in the female capsule dorm and it was SUCH a great, unique experience. The capsules were super cozy, very clean, and even had tvs. They were definitely big enough to put our luggage in so we didn't need to pay for an extra locker. The location was great, really close to public transportation and the... More

The capsules are a cool experience. It was super cheap compared to lots of hostels and hotels in the area. The location is great. However, you have to enter through the back (you don't have to but the front entrance is not in English and you will have no idea that it's the capsule hotel that you booked). Get off... More

I stayed here just to try it for fun. It was clean, calm and cozy. But it,s a place to stay for a shorter stay. If on a budget in Tokyo, try to find a Ryokan. Take a look at the capsule from inside here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VroaJywumFQ

I stayed in the Capsule Hotel Asakusa Riverside for one night just for the experience (this place was actually quite a bit more expensive than the hostel I was in for the rest of my Tokyo stay). This is one of the few capsule hotels in Tokyo with a women's section, which is why I chose to go here. It... More

Glad I tried this experience. One night was plenty though. What I liked: the capsule itself was pretty comfy and fine to sleep in; room to bring a small bag in with you; nice and dark and quiet in capsule room What I didn't like: creepy dark corridors, dingy carpets, shower room did not feel too clean, the jammies they...

I stayed here for 2 nights whilst in Tokyo and this was 1 night too long. A really strange set-up but worth seeing. The staff at reception weren't very helpful, my capsule was really cold at night and the mattress was about an inch think on hard plastic. It's not possible to shower between 10am and 3pm which is a... More

Surprisingly this place makes a lot of sense. It's cheaper than a hostel, the capaule provides a degree of privacy and potentially a better night's sleep than a hostel. There's hot water so you can at least make hot drinks and noodles. There's free toiletries, a decent sized locker (not big enough for a backpack) and a vague 1970's feel.... More

We stayed there for one night during our Tokyo trip. Well - out of the 3 places we stayed it was the worst one, but certainly the cheapest one. The capsules itself are quiet a nice idea, I had enough space to put my backpack in and you get some kind of privacy which you normally don't have in a... More

Staff didn't speak much English but tried to communicate. Wouldn't hold our luggage but had ¥400 lockers that fit 3 large suitcases, can only access it once and then have to pay to lock it again.

The capsules were exactly what I expected them to be based on previous reviews. Room enough to stretch my legs (but not my arms) and sit up. I even kept my large travel bag in the capsule with me rather than in a locker on another floor. The bed was less than ideal, as it was more like 3 inches... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
