  • This place is a total dive. It's dirty, old, and smells of damp and cigarettes. Feels like nothing's been replaced for 20 years. But weirdly that's why it's cool - like living in a broken-down spaceship. There's definitely an interesting vibe. They have a traditional sauna bath, which is always lovely, plus a private shower if you're shy. Dirt cheap.

  • Great price in a great location! It's right beside Asakusa Station, just a block away from Senso-ji and two stops from the Skytree. The staff is also very friendly. One of them even taught me to make origami!

  • The capsule is very comfortable and privacy is good. The problem is that we all get kicked out of the facility at ten in the morning rain or snow, hot or cold, for cleaning.

  • Everything was pretty alright aside from the lady working in the reception being annoying. The common room is cool but they only have one room with capsules open it seems so not that many people to meet. It is also separated floors for male and females which makes it a little bit even harder to meet people.

  • English is okay. This place is old. It is cleaned everyday but somehow everyone has given up hope. Everything is at the end of its lifespan. When we mentioned that there were electric cables hanging free inside the capsules the staff said -"It is because Europeans always break them you don't understand about our electricity"

  • It was a great place to crash, and they have free wi-fi, so I was able to catch up with the world that I'd left behind temporarily. The only thing I didn't much like was my initial idea on how capsules are setup vs my reality of them. I thought it was going to be more like a morgue (not that strange, lol) where they have a bunch of slots in a wall, like one Onsen room I went to. However, it felt like a bunch of bunkbeds, and while I was lucky to be on the bottom, I'd hate to be on the top bunk.

  • I stayed in the dorm portion of the capsule hotel. The beds were nice, there are curtains for privacy, and lockers with keys for your belongings. The bathrooms were okay, but I was turned off by the smoking on the floor. It also did not seem like a good place to meet other travelers. That said, it was very inexpensive and it is located very close to the Asakusa subway line.
