We stayed here on our last night in Japan purely for the capsule experience. The hotel is basically designed for overnight stays only and is fairly compact. The capsules themselves are an unusual experience but fun nonetheless! The bath (men) was amazing! Just don't be afraid to get your jocks off in front of randoms!

Fortunately for me, I just stayed for one night during my late night arrival in Shinjuku. It is located at the middle of pub and disco bar. For me, it was the worst place that I stayed in Japan. Everything is narrow, including locker and shoes locker. For you who is traveling with couples, better to rent a hous outside... More

Staying in a capsule hotel is a cool experience and I recommend it but not for more than one night, if you can afford it. True it is cheaper than a hotel and as a result it is mostly younger folk/20 somethings there. But it is noisy. My cell was by the bathroom and well past 1 am ladies were... More

What an experience! Large capsules provide a comfortable space to rest whilst the hotel itself has many amenities for a low cost layover in Tokyo. It is clean and well looked after. It is mere feet from the largest train station in the world (however you won't hear the trains) and could not be better situated.

When I booked this hotel, I was a little nervous but really it wasn't as bad as I feared. Firstly finding it was a little difficult and when you walk out of Shinjuku station, it is very daunting but once you get your bearings it's not so bad. The location is absolutely perfect, there's lots of bars and restaurants within... More

Bit pricey capsules if you don't book online. The capsules are standard, with radio and wake up alarm. Clean and comfortable. Great baths and saunas! Staff is friendly, English-speaking and very accommodating. The hotel is situated in an area with bars and clubs. Sometimes the sound on weekends is audible in the capsule area, although by no means intruding. Wifi... More

NB: This hotel has gender segregation and is geared towards men. I can't speak to the experience of female travellers This is a capsule hotel. You sleep in a tiny capsule separated from everyone else by just a thin piece of canvas. The rest of the hotel is communal. All toiletries are provided and the showers are inside a communal... More

Clean, quiet, and sensible price. I spent a comfortable night here, it's lovely and quite, great service and run like a military operation. Perfect for a night in the city before heading out on an early train.

Clean room and bed. located in Shinjuku very convenient. Very well prepared and considerate arrangement! You can't just stay in with anything you need. Got towels, shampoo, bath soap, teeth brush, locker...etc which you usually have to pay in other capsule hotels or hostel. Only thing is that people are required to leave from 10am-4pm every day.

Really enjoyed staying here, was initial put-off by the leaving between 10.00-16.00hrs daily and washroom situation, but actually enjoyed staying here in the end. The accommodation is some of the cheapest in Tokyo and the facilities are good. Free razors and toothbrushes provided in the washroom, only one hang-up potentially (especially if you're body shy) is the naked public bathing... More
