I just stayed 5 nights at First Cabin in Kyoto and I must say I really enjoyed my stay there.
Of course the concept has it's drawbacks (you ear everything next door ... actually there is no "door" ... just a curtain ...lol) but the look, the style and the super friendly staff makes up for it.
As mentioned by other reviewers many things are provided (as usual in Japan), beds, towels, pj's are replaced each day.
Also as often in Japan, wifi is only in the main lounge, in the cabin it seems there is a lan-connection (no cable provided in the cabin, maybe at reception, didn't ask).
The bath and shower area is to share but with private booths.
And if you are on a longer trip ... you can do your laundry for only 100 Yen (soap available at reception for 50 Yen).
In the end, you need to know what you go for and what you book. Let's say it's a luxury dorm style accommodation and for once, the single traveler is not penalized as it only provides ... single accommodation (men and women separated).
