Having heard and read about this 'capsule' hotel chain, I ahd teh opportunity to try it out. I had a long overnite layover of almost 10 hours. Unfortunately, while it is definitely inexpensive for a stay at the airport terminal itself, it was just too claustrophobic and cramped for me. I could see myself spending 2 - 3 hours comfortably to freshen myself and catch q few winks. But beyond that it was decidedly uncomfortable. Think of a plush prison cell ( those who have seen or been to one!), one of the first class suites in the new aircrafts, and put that into a third the size of an inside ship cruise cabin. You have a typical Yotel room (sorry, cabin). My cabin was the middle category. Think of the lower category! I would not even be able to squeeze in! If at all, go for their premium category that is more spacious, and of course more expensive.
