This fits the bill for a very affordable accommodation for just 1 night. The shower is pretty decent with toiletries provided - even facial wash, conditioner, hair dryer etc. The capsule comes with a privacy curtain which can be drawn when you are inside. They provide a small locker for you to store your belongings but this cannot fit even...

All in all I was pretty happy. The price was good, and the hotel was right by the shinjuku station, which was nice. The baths and other facilities were clean. Staff was helpful, and their English was better than most places I stayed in Japan. The pod was a bit too warm, and had no air circulation, which was my...

I stayed here with a college friend for two nights. Very cheap, very clean, and fantastic for poor college students exploring the city. I was a little nervous about being a young female staying alone, but it turned out to be fine. There is only one women's floor, but it was full of other young travelers, both Japanese and foreign....

I stayed for one night having arrived late into Tokyo. The location is ideal, right on the doorstep of Shinjuku station. The capsule was well equipped and I had a great nights sleep. The bathroom was also really well equipped with loads of toilets, showers and all bathroom products you need. You're given a locker with pyjamas, two towels and...

This was something really new to us. Have stayed at hostels before. But this was totally different. As stated you need to check in and out every day. We only stayed 1 night to expeience it. And 1 night was enough. Had some troubble to find the entrance at first. Walked past it 2 times, before we noticed it. Came...

Very cheap, very close to shinjuku station (the worlds busiest train station) Free Wi-Fi. Western people may not expect the shower system, but I got use to it. Just expect people to get changed at lockers behind the front desk. Amazing experience, would recommend, especially for the price and location

I stayed in several different capsule hotels during my trip in Japan and this is the best out of all. Clean, tidy, comfortable, budget, they have all. If you are looking for true Japanese capsule experience, this is the one.

I stayed here a couple of times while I was in Japan, so I got a pretty good understand of the place. You store your baggage in the lobby where the staff looks after it. You get your own locker for a backpack or clothing, which they provide you towels and a yukata. Men get a private bath, while women...

The capsule hotel is not suitable if you have more than a small bag with you. There is not enough space to put your luggage in the locker. That means you have to leave the luggage in the reception area, where even people from outside can steal it. The capsule itself is alright. But the TV only shows 24h porn...

This capsule hotel is yards away from the entrance to Golden Gai and is in the heart of Kabukicho. Excellent value for money and easy to find. Comfortable capsules, good clean bathing facilities and good storage for your stuff (suitcases may need to be left safely in front of reception.) A fun experience that you must have at least once...
