Since most capsule hotels only allows male staying guests, so I had to spend some time online to look for a capsule hotel that allows female guests since it was a solo trip for me and I had always wanted to give capsule hotels a try.
There is a hotel shuttle van that picks/alights guests from in front of a bookstore opposite JR Sannomiya station. However if you walk, it will probably take 10mins. (There is a 24hr food outlet just next to the bookstore, and the food is nice and cheap).
Upon entering the hotel, you will have to place your shoes into shoe lockers. The front desk staff are polite and friendly, however they speak nearly no English, but then again, I didn't need to communicate much with them anyway, other than the usual check in and check out procedures.
After check-in is done, a staff brought me up to the female-only level where I had to use a key to enter the sleeping quarters. The lockers for the bags are extremely narrow so I don't think you will be able to fit bags larger than 22".
There were normal capsule bunks and also deluxe capsule rooms.
I stayed at the deluxe capsule room, where I had my own private "room" with non-lockable sliding door. The room consists of a capsule bed, and a desktop computer.
