  • 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.

  • It was great! Love the people who Take care of the place and the common room has a homey kind of feel to it Definitely recommend to everyone who goes to tokyo, it was also very cheap 2200¥ when I stayed there in a dorm. Only problem was the bathroom felt dirty but not gross.

  • Couldn't have asked for a better location. This hostel is located at located in the Asakusa district, at a vibrant intersection (especially at night), just steps away from views of Tokyo's SkyTree, the world's tallest tower. The hostel itself is OK. It's a more private and quiet hostel, unlike the more active and friendly ones.

  • Despite what other reviews you may read here this capsule hostel in Asakusa is incredible! Amazing comfy A/C capsule dorm room with awesome hot bath and shower room! Laundry facilities, fast wifi in a wonderful common room with cable tv, tea and coffee and little kitchen and microwave to save money! Lovely area of Tokyo and staff on desk really nice and friendly in my experience!! Very good value for money so try to check this place out and you may be surprised to find out how nice it is!

  • Great location in Asakusa, and very easily accessible from the Asakusa and Ginza Lines. If you have trains departing from Ueno, it takes less than 10 minutes to get there from here. Staff is very nice, and their English is good. Facilities (showers) were good. Whole building kind of has a damp feeling to it, but every other hostel I have stayed at during the summer in Tokyo has the same feeling. Not such a great place for meeting new people, but great for a quick stay in Tokyo!

  • For the money, a pretty good deal! I liked it, and will come back. capsule was spacious and the room was air conditioned. Nice common room w/AC overlooking the busy street below w nice TV. Kimura was very pleasant at the front desk. Nice location for shopping, and subway and a nice river nearby.

  • This Hostel is not too bad, Location are really good, only 1 minute away from train station, and 5 minute to famous temple. The only thing is the stuff, I don't know what is going on with her, maybe because she doesn't understand my English. She seems kinda rude.

  • A convenient hotel, very close from the metro station. Stayed there 4 or 5 nights, will probably stay there again when returning to Tokyo. A fair choice i think, for the price. My rating for "facilities" would have been "excellent" if not for the dryer, which doesn't dry anything, the rest ( kitchen, bathrooms, etc.. ) were equipped as expected .
