            I love that the location is not too far to Shinsaibashi, but also is not too close. Because if it's too close than it'd be too noisy, but if it's too far than it'l be too tiring to walk. And this place has the cheapest washing machine, only 100 yen! Compare it to any laundromat that charge you 800 yen! This place is the best!

            The staff are so accommodating. You don't need to check out everyday which is different from a usual capsule hotel in Japan. No lockers for your stuff but there's a common area where you can put it. No towels, you need to pay extra for renting. Lounge is beautiful! Bathrooms are private, not common bathing area. Smoking area is at the lobby.

            One of the best advantage of this hostel is there is no limitation in check-in time. So it is resonable to passangers who arrive very late time. Also they gave a toothbrush, toothpaste, a body towel and a disposable shaver for free. Dormitory was cozy and peaceful. In addition, shower room was seperated by gender. Finally, staffs are good at English and friendly.

            Cheap and great location but DISAPPOINTED”

            I know, but I can't say it's worth it. I've been staying at kinda this dorm dozens of times so far but had a horrible experience this time. The thing was... noise, and air in the room, that made me suffer every single morning and night for 4 days of my stay. Since there's no ceiling or cover thing above the upper bed, So I could very easily hear all kinds of noise especially from washroom when the door's unclosed, and no-manner people's talking at midnight. And the air was always stuffy, dusty and hot because the A/C and the air purifier there in the bedroom and shared shower room, didn't seem to work at all for whole area in a floor, and cleanliness wasn't good enough. I could found thick layers of dust everywhere, even on the fan of air circulators and hair dryer. It caused most people allergic reaction like sneezing, couching and sniffing that represented how bad the air was. I don't usually do the long review like this but they really need to improve and upgrade the space.

            Simple, but fantastic! ”

            I was only here for one night but the capsule is very convenient, private, and clean. The bed was actually very comfy, and there is a bathroom just a few steps from every capsule. Each capsule has wall outlet for charging your phone, (and I believe a USB port) as well as a small fan that actually keeps the whole capsule surprisingly cool, and a light to keep your capsule illuminated for reading, etc. for this price, it is definitely worth it. It gives you a place to cool off and lie down after a long day of exploring, not so much meant for a place to get work done, and live. I loved my experience here, definitely recommend!

            Cool aesthetic, and provides a lot, but bad dorms”

            Has a lot of potential and a cool flair, but sadly it was hardly possible to sleep in the dorm. Same goes for the rooms, the lobby and reception look very nice, but the actual dorms look very run down. You could also hear everything and people were making out and eating noisily and the middle of the night. I spoke up repeatedly and told them to take it to the lobby, but they didn't.

            Great hotel”

            I stayed in the female dorm. The showers were on a separate floors but everything was clean. Capsules are not sound proof whatsoever but they do come with an adjustable light, fan and small locker. Luggage must stay in a common “luggage yard” inside your room which isn’t much of a room but rather a floor. Staff don’t speak very good English but they were kind. Decoration is what makes this place unique. However I only stayed one night because it’s not a social hotel. As a solo traveler I like to meet new people on the way and this was not the place.

            至れり尽くせりのホステル”

            初めて泊まりました。まず、スタッフさんの質が高くて親切丁寧です。正直、ここ以上に質の良いホステルはないと思うくらいです。 元々、楽天が運営していたホステルのようですが清潔感、ベッドの寝心地、食事とbarのクオリティが高くて安いビジホに泊まるより良いです。客層も欧米系からアジア、日本人が多く小綺麗な方が多かったです。 夜は静かでした。女性も安心して利用できる宿です。 アメニティーは無料で貸しバスタオル、歯ブラシ等色々揃っており、朝食はゲスト無料です。 ミナミを拠点に観光されるならとてもオススメします。 余談ですが、1Fにいるとキャサリン劇場が始まるかもしれません笑 ベッドは2段式で下段は天井が低く、上段は天井がないので開放側があると思われます。 靴箱程度のロッカーは修理中で使えませんが、長財布や携帯等の小物を収納できるセキュリティボックスがあるので安心できます。
