Show reviews that mention
Provides exactly what is expected for a capsule hotel experience in Japan. The price includes a set of pajamas, a face towel, a bath towel, and a locker for storage. A variety of drinks/snacks are sold through vending machines, but would be better if they could provide free drinking water.
My Debut Stay in a Japanese Capsule!”
I enjoyed my debut stay in a Japanese capsule hotel here. Considerate people will have good etiquette to follow the rules and everyone's stay will be a good one. Requires proper management of you luggages which is typical in most Japanese capsule hotels.
clean and close to the station ”
The capsule was clean and the facilities were well maintained. About 15 minutes walk to the station and there’s a lot of food around. Staff (the lady in the picture) can improve her attitude. but overall it was a great experience.
Not the cleanest Capsule Hotel. The age of the capsules for men shows. Great Public Bath. Guests with multiple luggage or large luggage should think twice, since this property do not really cater for such guests. Need to check out every day. I did not get the best prices for the quality of the stay. To get the best prices, book from the hotel directly next time. Heavy discounts are common.
Great location. Capsules were not cleaned properly ”
The location is perfect. Less thank 100m to Robot Restaurent, amazing pubs and bars. I stayed in this capsule for 3 nights in 3 different capsules. I’m not sure whether they changed the bedsheets or not coz I saw hair on the sheets in all 3 capsules. I didn’t want to complain coz I was staying just for the night. However I think it’s more important to pay attention to these things before you loose customers.
The location is convenient and pretty good overall. Maybe I didn't read the description thoroughly but the onsen is only for men, which was a HUGE disappointment for me! You also have to "check out" and "check in" again every additional day that you stay, which means there's not a locker to keep your things locked during the day. I was disappointed by those things and the poor air ventilation within the capsules. It would be okay for a one night stay, but for multiple nights it definitely isn't ideal.
Cheap, good location but dirty”
Excellent location. Very cheap. The hotel facilities are outdated and somewhat dirty. The luggage places, bathing area and locker area have awful smell. The common areas are very crowded. It is very inconvenient that I needed to check out before 10am daily and cannot stayed in the hotel from 10am to 4pm. And we cannot keep any luggage for awhile after checked out.
For those who are looking for night activities, this is a place to stay over as they provide basic amenities and vending machines are available as well. Shampoo, body wash, face cleanser, toothbrush (but not toothpaste) are provided, including pajamas. It is located in a building itself. So, carefully look at the boards/directory to look for this hotel. The restaurant in the hotel closes on Sundays.
Very good downtown location near the Golden Gai area ”
Nice kitchen at night, so why not do breakfasts as well please?
everything is great”
little bit difficult to find as it located inside a building, staff are nice and explain the detail when you get in, there’s a common area for eating and relaxing, the shared bathroom got everything u need, shampoo, conditioner, face cleanser, toothbrush which surprise me.
Value for money”
The shampoo,towel, facial cleaner etc are available and free to use. Location is strategic and very nearby to the subway station and also tourism spots. The only inconvenience is everyone is required to check out every 10am although we will stay a couple days in this hotel.
Central location, very walkable to everything in the area. The place was a bit difficult to find as it was dark and raining. The sign is small and posted on the building's floor directory board. Just look out for a British Pub and the building will have a bull horn on it if you look up *check the photos*. Upon entrance, you must remove your shoes and place them into a shoe locker. A key secures them while you are using the locker. Check in was easy as I simply provided my name and they confirmed everything. For females, the floor is on the 8th level with showers, lockers and capsules. This is a females only floor. There is only ONE elevator that services the hotel so it can get crowded especially during peak times. Upon arrival at the 8th floor, there is a door that secures the floor for female guests with a passcode provided at the desk. Lockers are small. They will not fit your luggage. I used my locker to hold my coat and other small belongings. There is a shelf inside the locker room as well as at the entrance past the secured door to store your luggage so please remember to bring a lock with you. Inside the locker, you're provided with: 1 body towel, 1 face/hair towel, a set of night clothing and slippers as well as a couple hangers. Other amenities are provided in the washroom which are: tissues, cotton swabs, cotton pads, hair dryer, toothbrushes, lotions, face wash, shampoo, conditioner, body washes. The washroom/powder area is quite small considering the number of capsules there are on the floor. 5 showers and 5 or 6 toilet stalls. 8 sinks, trough style. I made sure to shower later at night to beat the rush. When I checked in at around 1130pm, there were many people also getting in and grabbing a shower at that time. Plan accordingly! The capsule was recently spacious. I am not a tall nor am overly large person so I found the space quite nice. There is a TV, dimmable light, and one plug outlet. Definitely bring one of those charging stations if
my first time in a capsule hotel”
Multilingual staff greeted me at the reception counter and gave me a quick overview of the facilities. I have visible tattoos and was politely advised to cover up in the bathing area around other hotel guests, which were largely other Japanese. This was not an issue for me (I am already familiar with Japanese policies towards tattoos), despite being *heavily* tattooed on my entire abdomen and back/torso - mostly thanks to the fact that the provided pajamas did most of the covering for me. The capsule itself was rather spacious and had a small nightstand-type shelf, dimmable light, alarm, and tv inside. The next night I stayed in a lower-cost nearby guest house, which didn't have all these amenities, but I also think the guest house was more geared towards foreign tourists on a budget. Guest house or capsule, both places afforded me a place to shower and rest in privacy. I was very pleased to have stayed here at Capsule Kuyakusho-mae and experience its sensible hospitality.
great if you know what you're getting into”
I wanted to be stumbling distance from Golden gai, and this place absolutely nailed that, literally couldn't be closer unless I slept in a bar. I didn't read the listing as closely as I probably should have so just be aware that you have to check out every day at 10 and check back in after 4, but you can leave your bag unlocked on a shelf so you don't have to lug it around. Also worth noting: because of the (very nice) onsen style bathhouse, you cannot stay here if you have tattoos. I have a tiny one on my foot, and no one noticed so I was fine but anyone with sleeves or back pieces should keep looking unfortunately. Also: if you are a male traveler you will be constantly harassed by very aggressive girly bar promoters/scammers that are literally posted up outside the door to the hotel all night. This was very frustrating and by aggressive I mean they will follow you and one even grabbed my arm trying to pull me towards a bar which stuck out as strange and very not Japanese. I started yelling at this guy and his friends and they didn't even make eye contact with me again after that which made the rest of my stay more peaceful. (though that last bit is about the neighborhood more than the accommodation itself) Don't let these caveats dissuade you, the capsule hotel experience was a very positive one for me and certainly has some advantages over hostels at this price (namely location, cleanliness, and value), just don't take crap from the scammers and bring some ear plugs!
capsule hotel, top location in the heart of shinjuku”
nice budget capsule hotel in the center of shinjuku. the capsules were comfortable, although old fashioned already. male spa and grooming products good. Lockers were small and I had to leave my suitcase outside. Check-out by 10 pm and check in again after 4 pm everyday if staying for more than one night. Laundry, tv room and sitting area with restaurant service. Enjoyed staying here for 2 nights.
Very convenient for short transit, provide all the essentials necessities for travelling and privacy compare to hostel. The cons is that you have to check out everyday even if you are staying for 2 consecutive days. The capsules are not soundproof, so it can get noisy.
Good hotel if you sleep after 2am”
5-8 mins walk from shinjuku station easy to find with signs on first floor lobby on third floor rooms on 6-8floor no shoes no slipper provided walk barefooted tho floor is generally clean shared bathroom shower on level 3 all floor have toilet for poop pee wash hand level 5 is karaokay and some dance club not sure where the music will go on till 2 am it’s not that bad but for light sleepers you better off sleep after 2am. i stayed on fri night. not sure of other days check out 10am is a must so u have 7-8 hrs of sleep pillow blanket comfortable towel toothbrush soap shampoo provided counter staffs are helpful knows english generally nice only one lift might have to wait for some time to get any floor food downstairs everywhere u can feast in shinjuku it’s the most crowded place in tokyo at night recommended to stay in this area
Good: The location (close to Shinjuku station); quiet environment; clean beds and clean floors (shoes must be kept in lockers at the hotel entrance); nice public bath with sauna, jacuzzi and toiletries; towels and sleeping suit provided; helpful staff (I was checked in by the lady in the hotel's profile picture); relatively low price Not so good: Only one lift between the lobby and the upper floors, hence long waiting time; wifi was intermittent for me; capsule was stuffy if I closed the curtain; the TV took up a big chunk of space in the capsule and I kept knocking my head/body against the TV
Great onsen experience”
I booked this place because I saw it had an onsen/open hot bath. The onsen is quite big and can fit more than a one or two dozen people. It's mostly Japanese who stay here and I'd avoid the morning 8-9 am rush as all of them will be using the bath area which is shared by the onsen. However, during the evening it's a great place to be. Like most capsule hotels, you cannot leave your stuff inside the locker even if you are staying for several nights. You need to bring your stuff with you when you leave in the morning. Check-out time is 11 am. The capsule itself was on the smaller side so anyone bigger than 5'8" may find it stuffy. The bed was fairly thick and comfortable, but the capsule itself is a bit outdated. It still has a CRT TV built-in. There's a large common area with tables, chairs, recliners with plenty of power outlets. The wifi is fast and there are vending machines in the common area so you can hang out here if you're not ready for bed yet. The common area is a plus since other capsule hotels I've been to don't have a common area like this. Had a good stay overall and would come back for the onsen and common area which puts it above other capsule hotels. Only thing I didn't like was the location. It was hard to find. Other than that, location in Shinjuku is great.
Clean. OK for a few nights”
Clean . I wouldn't stay more than a few nights in a capsule and definitely not the night before leaving Japan as there isn't room to repack a suitcase. Bring earplugs as you can hear everyone getting up in the morning. Capsule itself was spacious, but a little warm - a fan would be nice to circulate the air a little. Woman's floor was clean, quiet and towels, shampoo etc were provided. Location was great - close to eating, entertainment and about 10-15 min from train station
