  • Great view from the spa space. Especially at night. Close proximity to Tokyo tower and Senso-ji. Overall impression is just okay. But still the great view, which despite the not so good atmosphere at the place, makes it a nice place to stay for a night. The staff's english is limited but enough to handle the basic questions.

  • OK. It's a Capsule, if you go to Japan, you should get the experience. Very cheap, good location, staff very helpful. You can enjoy the water area, with sauna and hot water. For me perfect. Asakusa is one of the more interesting areas of Tokyo. Remember, you can't stay in the Capsule during a few hours (more less 11.00 am to 16.00-17.00 pm)

  • I am a 25 year old Canadian, I stayed in this place for 5 nights. What I can say is that its in a great location is Asakusa, very close to the rail station. The staff speak English, it's not perfect English but come on people this is Asia. The staff are very helpful as well. All of the whiners who wrote reviews complaining about the shower situation, thin mattress, and cleanliness are clearly just spoiled travellers who expect the Hilton when you are paying 25$ a night. Great Place!

  • Expensive storage for luggage. Dirty beds/capsules. Showers close at 09am. Noisy. Extremely no-frills solution for people who want nothing more than thin mattress..

  • Very good hostel, staff seemed friendly enough, capsule itself was better than expected, shared bath and showers were ok, would have prefered private shower, but no problem, as i'm aware many japanese places have shared bathing/showering, overall very happy with experience. only thing that did get rather annoying was having to give in your key everytime you went out, and then getting another key, and a piece of paper you have to hold on to, then exchanging this for the actual key.
