“Clean, convenient and high class capsule hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

Clean, convenient and high class capsule hotel. The location is good which just next to the shopping area. The hotel looks clean with reasonable price. However, please don't have high expectation on sleeping quality as same as traditional capsule hotel.

The hotel 's location is excellent - can be accessed from Namba underground metro exit. It is segregated into a few zones and you should not talk in the sleeping area - where your capsule is located. Headphone is provided for listening to TV. The capsule cannot be locked but there is a lockable drawer under the bed which is big enough. And, the capsule is bigger than expected - much better than a single bed in hostel. Everything will be provided including toothbrush/toothpaste, towels, and even a set of T-shirt/pant. The big share bathroom with sauna is a surprise to me. It's so nice to take a good bath in the big pool after a day's walk. And, there is a whole set of sheseido skin care line for use afterwards. Recommended for single traveller in Osaka

good capsule, location. 3,400yen per night, quite reasonable! thought you can not lock your door, it provides box for you. service is good, they speak english well! ok to stay for a few night. if your arrival is late, you can stay there because it nears Namba station. don't need to walk in midnight.

一日だけ泊まりましたですがこちらカビんとても便利でした。大阪の夢いな場所特に度とんぶりとても近かった。カビんの部屋はきたなくて、しずかでした。ほとんどお客さんはカビんがいませんですからカビんの中ほとんどうるさくなかった。チャンスがあったら僕きっともう一回きて
Extremely convenient and clean cabin. The rooms have nice lighting but not noisy as claimed. Most of the tourists are out during day time so its pretty quiet. I like the proximity to thr Dotonburi area and other famous attractions in Osaka. Location wise just above the Namba metro station makes this hotel a plus point. Will certainly return if i have a chance to visit Osaka again. Great experience

5,900 yen per person for a capsule. Extremely convenient location, easy to find. Very modern in style. Comfortable beds. Staffs are professional,One of the male receptionist was rude to my requests, other than that, service is just average. Female shower located at level 3 is an Open shower area, Japanese style. Wouldn't mind staying here again.

Easy to find because of it's good location, English Speaking staff, excellent idea! I booked it online (design and the price were criteria's to choose First Cabin) and payed in advance, but when i saw the hotel i started worrying that the price i've payed was just a 10 % of the whole price :) But - No. Really cheap price for the facilities provided. Very clean and modern, cosy and unusual - best experience ever! Hope to come back again :)

Room Tip: Nothing more to add, i had a great time :)

This was my first time at a "capsule" hotel. After reading the reviews, I decided on this hotel for the convenience. Pros: price, very friendly staff, English-speaking staff, a few blocks from train station (to travel to/from Kansai Airport), directly above Namba station (exit 13), a few blocks from Dotomburi restaurants and shopping galore. Cons: limited privacy, not for light sleepers. This was the best location for the price and I couldn't have asked for anything more. In the women's section, I only saw one shower and an onsen-type setting (stools and showerheads) for bathing. From a western point of view, this may not be comfortable. The staff allowed me to keep my bag for a few hours after I checked out -- much appreciated. I would highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to see Osaka on a budget.

Room Tip: away from the main hallways
