“Great experience, lots of fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

LOVED staying in the little capsule beds, they were not as cramped or claustrophobic as you might expect. there were little tvs/radios in there and once inside the beds were comfortable and noise was minimal. The shared bathrooms were clean and inviting. We were able to extend our stay for an extra night, and at a fairly reasonable price. It was handy to have lockers too so we could leave our valuables all day whilst our exploring Osaka.

Very good location close from everything, helpful staff (speak english) all the facilities you need (whashing machine, hair dryer, manga, tv...), clean.
Maybe too big and busy.
Reserve ahead to get a capsule during the weekend.

Tres bien situé, a proximité de tous commerces, le personnel est sympathique et parle anglais, tout ce dont vous avez besoin est sur place (machine a laver, seche cheveux, manga, tv...).
Peut etre un peu trop gros et trop de monde.
Reservation necessaire pour s'assurer une capsule le weekend.

Room Tip: Girls/ boys dorms separated, girls are on the basement. Game center, library and tv room on the bas...

You cant beat the location, price, cleanliness, service that this place offers. Id say a repeat costumer and I stay here quite a lot- I would recommend booking online on their site in advance as its even cheaper, and go for a lower bunk.
highly recommended even if you just want to experience a capsule hotel

Room Tip: book online for a 100 yen less per night - and select a bunk bed with an electricity outlet

I have never stayed in a capsule hotel before and I heard it was a must do in Japan. This was one of the few mixed gender capsule hotels i could find in Osaka. The female area is very secure you have 2 keys one to enter the female area and another for your locker.

Location wise it's a great spot to walk to the shops in Dotonbori! The common room in capsule hotel smells like smoke but didn't spend much time there. Overall it's reasonably clean. You are supplied with PJ's, a small towel and a large towel. There are toothbrushes and razors in the bathrooms itself.

I went to Osaka for a concert held at Osaka Big Cat, just around the block from the hotel. It's very good located, less than 3 minutes walk to get. I stayed in a capsule in the female section. It's very clean and they provide bath towel, hand towel, sponge (it expends when wet, for body scrubbing at shower), toothbrush (with toothpaste) and PJ. Very comfortable mattress and spacious in the capsule. It doesn't cause any claustrophobia to me. I like their manga room where 10,000 man gas available for reading. The TV area is excellent, you can lounge in big sofa with small speakers on each side of your head, so that you can only hear the program you are watching without listening to others'. The bath is great, with several shower facilities where you can sit down and wash, a sauna and a reasonable sized Onsen tub. All very clean. The only thing I found inconvenient is the size of the private locker. It's thin and small.I think it's designed for business travellers who only carry small baggage. For backpackers or those with larger luggage, you will have to store the big items at the reception, 200yen for 24 hours. So every time I need stuff from my suitcase, I had to go upstairs, claimed it, get things out and cloaked it again. Regardless, I will say this is an excellent place to stay!

Ok, so it's a bed, somewhere to sleep and thats it... That is unless you venture down to the baths on the 6th floor included in the price, I could have stayed there all night to just chill out. Many different baths at different temperatures, indoor and outdoor, 2 saunas (again depending on how hot you like it) a steam room and an ice room (yes it is pretty much a walk in freezer).

Stayed on the 10th floor where I have a slight issue with the smoking room being very close to the sleeping rooms. if it wasn't for this it would be a 5 star rating.

Well organized and equipped capsule hotel. Surprisingly unclostrophobic with the only down side being snoring from adjoining capsules (the capsules have blinds, not doors). A fantastic experience and one of the high points of a trip to Japan.
