Clean, comfortable, and efficient capsule hotel. Incredible value staying in Shinjuku, considering the many complimentary toiletries in the well-maintained, well laid-out shower room (for females). A robe and a pair of slippers were conveniently ready in the locker. By the way, I'm 5'6" tall and laying on my back, my feet already touched the end of my capsule room (in...

It is right inside Kabukichō (歌舞伎町). A lot of restaurants and bars. Don Quijote just 驚安の殿堂 just a few step away and they open till super late (my last visit was mid-night). Girls room are on the top level with an extra locking door. It provided not only a capsule bedroom but a about 60cm tall locker and a share...

This experience in Japan is a must! But is only confortable for one night. The women section was really clean and confortable, really secure to keep your lugage there but every morning at 10am no matter how many night you will to stay, you must do checkout.

This was a pleasant stay, it was our first capsule hostel and was quite a surprise. If you are used to showering solo then be prepared! You shower in a large room with 10ish other men, but it doesn't stop there... you need to be seated when showering and the shower head is a hand held job. Apart from the...

I stayed at this capsule hotel with my partner for 2 weeks in October 2016. We have stayed in Shinjuku before as it is a great central location with train links in and around Tokyo, and this hotel is about 5-8mins walk from the station. On arrival in Shinjuku, we found the hotel easily with the help of a printed...

I checked in last October 17-19. The hotel was great. It is very clean and comfortable to stay. The only problem I had was looking for the location of the hotel. I didnt know that I was standing in front of the hotel already as what my GPS is showing since the signage is written in Japanese. Aside from that,...

I had a great "capsule" experience here. I stayed in a regular hotel for the first 3 nights and ended my Tokyo stay at the Shinjuku Kuyakushomae. I found the staff to be charming, friendly, and efficient. The capsules were big enough to not feel claustrophobic. And luckily, there were no noisy guests around that night, so it was quiet....

We stayed for 2 weeks - great location in the middle of Shinjuku. The capsules were clean and the staff were really friendly and some spoke very good English. You need to check in an out each day which was fine by me - however there are fines if you check out after 10am. You can leave your luggage in...

Fantastic capsule experience with all amenities and toiletries provided. Very clean, neat and safe with locks and codes to almost everywhere even within the hotel. I satyed on the 8th floor which is for female only. They even provide with makeup cleansing oil, toner, emulsion, hair care oil...all shishedo brand. Best for travellers on a budget.
