    Nice Location, near bus stop, and shopping area”

    The location is very good, it's easy to go anywhere, once I walk to Gion from the Hostel. The bathroom is clean, the lounge is comfy. This is my second time staying here. this is my top hostel in Kyoto.

    Interesting 'Spacship' like experience”

    I was recommended by friends to try the Nine Hours Capsule and see what this whole thing is about. It was a very interesting experience where i felt we were boarding on a spaceship, and got to meet some of the other tenants of the Capsule. The Capsule itself wasn't the most comfortable and I wouldn't want to stay there on a long term, but it was nice for a first time experience and the whole setup is really cool. Without a doubt worth the money.

    Hard for train transfer”

    There's one subway station next to Nine Hours, but it's lot of work to transfer there from Kyoto station. It's also kinda weird to check out and back in every night. Otherwise, the facility and staffs are really nice.

    Great Capsule Hotel!”

    Very great hotel, great staff and u can leave your luggage at front desk, but u can’t take a shower before your check-in and after your check-out time. It’s so clean, i feel refreshed since most of floors are white colors, big bathroom with private locker they provide slippers, towel, tooth brush, and tooth paste, while not many hostel provide that things. Very quite at the bedroom and it’s very dark, so beware cz u may wake up late :D Yall should try this Capsule Hotel once you travel to Japan. The only (-) is there’s no kitchen room here, but it’s not a big deal for me, cz i’m solo traveler :D

    Much future”

    Booked this place well in advance bc my boo wanted to experience staying in a capsule hotel. This place was VERY smooth and 90s futuristic – upon entering the sleeping floor I really felt like I was stepping onto the set of Alien, and when I entered the washroom/locker floor I felt like I was in the Janet/Michael Jackson video Scream. But I'm a sci-fi nerd, so keep that in mind. The sleeping pods were spacious and just cool in design, and the house pajamas were solid black (a nice change of pace to all the pink PJs I'd gotten at other capsule hotels). My boo said the male area washroom was kind of nasty, but I just have to wonder if that's general male (disregard of) cleanliness for you... It seemed most of the guests were non-Japanese. I found the women's washroom to be just fine. Staff was helpful. Location is great, just a few blocks from Kamo River.

    Good for one night, inconvenient for multiple days”

    Overall, I enjoyed staying at this hostel! The capsule was large and the facilities were clean. However if you stay for more than one day it is pretty inconvenient. Every day you have to check out at 10 am and move all of your things out of the bed although you'll most likely end up staying in the same one. The lockers to keep luggage are really small and are most likely meant for people who are doing brief trips so I had to keep my luggage in the lobby along with other people. It became frustrating after awhile. The wifi strength was poorer here than most hostels I've been in. Other than that, the location was great and I would recommend for a different hostel experience.

    Excellent, but super inconvinient, not for travellers... ”

    Pro's: This place is excellent from every point of view be it location, cleanliness & staff but however its not a place for travellers, but rather local tourist & business people. Cons: 1) I was staying on level 7, whereas the shower & lockers are on level 9 & due to the fact that their lockers are so tiny & you cannot take your backpack in the capsule, so you have to leave your baggage at the reception at level 1, it was so super inconvinient to get things from your bags now & again. 2) You have to check out every morning at 10 am & re-checkin at 12.00, it beats logic. imagine someone who has just arrived early morning having to check out again. 3) No social atmosphere as all they have is some sort of a waiting room near the reception, there are not sockets to even charge your mobile or laptop. The place lacks a social atmosphere in every sense. 4) No kitchen or microwave for heating food. they dont even have hot water to make coffee. 5) Although the hostel is huge with a lot of space they have not designed the hostel or made provisions keeping travellers in mind. I personally wont stay here again.

    A Solid Hotel for Any Backpacker”

    My stay at Nine Hours was on the eighth and final night of my trip and the fifth capsule hotel in which I stayed. I thought the theme of "neo-futurism" sounded interesting so booked a room to try it out. While I was pretty underwhelmed by the minimalist style (the "lounge" is little more than a partitioned-off section of the lobby with a waist-high retaining wall) and thought it was a little inconvenient that the showers and lockers were on a different floor from my capsule, I can't say it wasn't a great value. I was also really pleased that their check-in time is relatively early (12 PM).

    Pros: The hotel is very near the train station and various restaurants. There is also some convenience stores nearby. The capsule is comfortable for me. They also have an elevator and a good locker area (i.e. you can fit your luggage). The staff are polite and can speak English. Cons: Capsule only has one outlet and has no fan (though it was pretty cool during spring, not sure during summer). They could also add some skin lotion for the ladies.

    Unique and enjoyable experience”

    Don't be like me and think you can just stay 9 hours - you can stay all night 😂 Very futuristic feel. Showers/lockers are on a separate room to the capsules, meaning the sleeping area is quiet and peaceful (although the pods aren't particularly soundproofed). Pods have power and wake-up light alarms built-in. Guys and girls are separate. Ground-level work space with tables, power, chairs, WiFi etc. Would stay again.

    Hotel not providing any free drinking water and smoking room. The tiny public bath was out of order during my stay. The powder room and walkway in capsule area are very dim. The hotel is a bit worn out and small, not same as the picture.

    Nice Stay, bit far from station”

    The capsule pod is nice, only that the power station is put on top of the bed and it is pretty awkward to sleep with cables on your head. Tower and pajamas are provided everyday. The hotel is pretty far from the mrt station connecting directly to Kyoto Station. Jacuzzi pool was not working during my stay, which was a bummer because I was hoping to relax after walking all day.

    Everything's provided, pajamas, locker (was dirty), toiletries, hairdryer etc. Suitable for solo travelers who are on budget. Can be noisy with neighbors who snore, going in and out of the capsule late at night. They provide free ear plug though. In general it's a good experience.

    Cool futuristic experience with some flaws”

    I stayed one night at Nine Hours to try out the capsule-style hotel. The wake up alarm-feature did not work in my pod - luckily I tested it a few times before i went to bed and discovered it before it was too late. I used my own phone alarm instead. Unfortunately there was a choir of snoring men on my floor, making it sound like i was sleeping in a animal farm of sorts. The staff was not very helpful when I complained about it, but luckily they sell earplugs at Family mart next doors - something the staff should know and recommend for guests having trouble to sleep. Or why not sell it in the lobby of the hotel? It would have been better if they could section off the pods a bit more - it's inevitable to have a quiet experience when you have 20 pods in the same room.
