I stayed in this hotel for two nights for affordable accommodation near the main train stations. The capsule itself was fine, very quiet and comfortable. So my impression of this capsule hotel is not based on the fact that it was a capsule and (naturally) didn't have all the comforts of less budget-oriented accommodation. But even if you're travelling on... More

I would recommend this for a night for tourists in Japan. It is simple, affordable accommodation, definitely not luxurious but for those with a penchant for new experiences or an enquiring mind, check this out.

We were a little sceptical about staying in a Capsule hotel having heard mixed reviews. This was one of the few hotels that was female friendly, although men and women sleep on separate floors. For £15 per person, we thought it was amazing! Upon arrival, we had to take our shoes off and locker them away. If you have a... More

This is a great experience no doubt - location is fantastic, pods are clean, bathhouse is well equipped and spacious. You really can just turn up in shorts and a t-shirt and be ok (walk around pajama's, amenities, towels, laundry all provided) You have to expect the slight smell of feet and snoring if you stay in a place like...

Cons: the capsule area can be noisy and the pillow and mattress is not too comfortable. Wifi only in the common area. Pros: Relatively cheap rates at 2900yen per night. They provide clothes to sleep in, toothbrush, shaver and showering items so i can bring less things while travelling. You can hang out in the common area and mingle with... More

This capsule hotel advertises being a backpackers place. It’s not. As it’s not really a hotel. It’s a SPA. The SPA areas are well developed and are open to everyone paying an entrance fee. You have relaxing rooms and massive saunas and hot pools as shown on the pictures of the follow travellers. What you should know is that the... More

This is certainly a great way to experience how crazy the Japanese are. It is a weird combination of a space capsule and a hostel. The common area is home to some strange types of people. Yet also business men and even families check in. The spa area is great. Different pools: hot, hotter and hotst. This is the only... More

When I arrived in Osaka it was about 6.30pm but it took me an age to find this place. I asked for directions via email several times but only really got a reply that said “it is about 10 minutes on foot from Shinsaibashi station” and “Please get from JR Kyoto Station to Osaka Station. Please go down at Shinsaibashi... More

Lived in Japan for 7 years, came back to visit with my fiance. He's a foodie so we HAD to visit Osaka (Dontonbori Street is a wicked place to restaurant / iizakaya hop). I learned about this hotel from a group of ex-pats and we booked it, unsure of what to expect. The staff was wonderfully kind, and in the... More
