    The view from the bath !”

    I sometime stay at this capsule hotel in Asakusa. The location is super good. It is right next to underground station and by the sumida river. The view from the bath on the top floor is soooooo good. But you might be peeped so be careful :)

    Love the privacy.”

    Capsule room, privacy, friendly staff

    I loved my capsule :) it was very cozy and big enough to give me the privacy I wanted from all the hostels. You can watch some tv and set up an alarm. There are only 2 floors for women and 4 for men, so the chargers were not busy. I was also always alone in the public shower (they have hot bath as well). Common rooms can smell of smoke because smoking is allowed here. You also have hot water and vending machines with food and drinks. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The downside is that you have to leave at 10h and leave your bags in the second floor and pay for the vakuables. Otherwise, a good experience!

    Capsule hotel in Asakusa”

    location, staff and price

    This capsule hotel is located inside another hotel, (they share a lobby).Its quite tricky to find it unless you go to the back of the hotel! Staff are quite helpful but and the common/shared area is quite spacious. Wifi is not available in every floor. Location is strategic, next to a train exit. My only complaints is that the pod/capsule is kind of old. There is no power outlet to charge your electronics unlike other newer capsule hotels. My TV is also broken.

    its value for money. but didn't like the facilities at different floor (but that's what you get for a budget stay, i guess). what would be nice would be a no-smoking policy throughout the facilities. common areas, lifts, etc all have cigarette smell (except the capsule).

    Very dirty, stains everywhere.”

    The location was pretty great right next to the station. The staff for the most part was good. But there was one older man we would just flat out refuse to help me. Outside of when I first checked in and he tried to make me pay after I already paid online. Whenever i would try and turn my key in and leave and he was there he would stand there not helping me hand gesture for me to wait while he got someone else to take my key. The only place to get Wi-Fi is on one floor but it's also a smoking room. So if your like me and hate smoke don't stay here. There's even a note on the door saying there have been thefts recently. Makes you really want to stay there. There's only public baths no private showers . I will never stay here again worst hotel experience I've ever had. Would never recommend. Extremely dirty with stained sheets. There was empty hole in my capsule where I assume a tv is supposed to go. No place to charge your phone in the capsule either.

    Great value if you are ready for adventure ”

    Hey very Japanese experience where you are provided with slippers to wear inside and pajamas and a toothbrush. The Bass is communal, but separated by gender. You are expected to sit on a small stool and shower before getting into the large warm tub. It's not as intimidating as it may sound in officially kind of fond of this is another culture for a while. Would definitely return. It's not sleek and modern and there is limited places to plug in electronics, if you're looking for local culture you come to the right place. Steph is accommodating and friendly, I speak enough English to get you where you need to go, but some translation aids on your part will make sure everything is accurate.

    Since the name of hostel changed and it is hard to find the location. I need to asked Japanese people to help me and gladly I got the one who help. Make sure to put same name in front of the building so everybody will notice easily. The location was BEST actually because just beside the subway and also very easy to explore Asakusa. The facilities also good.. Having nice time to spending time here :)

    i stayed so you don't have to”

    pro: the most well ventilated capsule hotel i've been. cons: 1. very rundown 2. only public bath for capsule hotel customers - what if girls have period?? 3. security not great. there's a notice saying there's theft happened b4 in the building. so i kept my valuables in the free locker provided. then the staff opened it to put new towels in?! so WHATS THE POINT OF HAVING A LOCKER? i asked that and reply was - then use our coin locker on 2nd floor. what the holy f***. same occurs if you ask where you can keep the stuff b4 checkin. i think i paid more than it worths so NO. 4. no wifi except 2nd floor - capsule in 7th floor 5. common area aka 2nd happens to be a smoking area too so while i was working, i had to breathe in 2nd hand smoke. not for travellers/tourists to experience capsule hotel. it's for drunk japanese who're unable to get home after last train.

    Very good”

    When visiting capsule hotel, you have to be aware of what is it that you're paying for. For me, it was the experience itself and not the amenities. Beds aren't really comfortable, and there's not much of facilities in the hotel, but the experience is great and the staff was really helpful. They even let us use the lockers when we already checked out. Note that the google map doesn't show the real location, but the staff in the other hotel was nice and drew us a map to Asakusa Riverside (on map Hotel New Gyominso).

    It was difficult to find this hotel. Because it is known by the locals as "Hotel New Gyomin-so" and "Capsule Hotel Asakusa Riverside" is not shown in the front of the hotel.It will be a great hotel after the renovation and upgrades.

    Great Value for a few nights”

    Location, Cost/Value, Staff

    Great capsule hotel for the cost. Excellent location with friendly/supportive staff. At check in you'll be given a key to the locker near your capsule bed after swapping your shoes in a locker downstairs for the "house slippers." There is a shared break room with vending machines and coin lockers on the second floor. The coin lockers there are various sizes. The large coin locker will fit large "checked" baggage. Make sure you have everything you need from your luggage before depositing your coins (400 yen for 12 hours at the time I stayed there), as opening the locker will require another 400 yen deposit to lock the locker again, even within the 12 hour time frame. Your capsule will be on a different floor where you will have access (with your key) to a locker that will fit two hangers for clothes (provided). You'll also find a towel, pajamas, toothbrush, and disposable razor in this locker. The capsule floors have a shared bathroom area. The 9th floor has a shared bath with showers, a large tub, and sink area for Men and Women. There is also a balcony overlooking the river on the 9th floor.
