the worst bed”
The best thing and the only good thing about this hotel is its location: very close to a subway station (straight shot to Kyoto station) and Shijo Street (the main street of Kyoto). The bed mattress felt like sleeping directly on springs. The staff was not helpful, one even tried to check me out one day early. I stayed here only because my usual business hotel was booked. I recommend this place only if you are on a tight budget, and business hotels are all sold out.

Highly recommended!”
Excellent location (only few steps away from Shijo stn exit 5), comfortable bed and cubicle is spacious not that cramped, friendly and helpful staff. Bathroom is shared and located on a different floor, but it had a dedicated a dedicated elevator, cleanliness is well maintained and complete with amenities (even Shiseido skincare were provided). I enjoyed my stay in First Cabin hotel and will definitely book them again when I go back to Kyoto.

Perfect for a budget traveller.”
The hotel is just a walking distance to the subway and Hankyu Railway station. So it’s convenient to travel around Kyoto. The only downside is that the shower room is on the lower floor. But overall, staff was accommodating. It was a nice stay.

Do not stay here”
It's very rare that Japanese people are rude but this time around, I have to express my distaste on how they handle their staff. I was scheduled to stay at this capsule hotel for a good 4 nights, I ended up only staying for 1 night and left immediately. After my first night, I woke up at 4:30AM to get ready for my day only to find my capsule curtain open ALL THE WAY. After getting ready and heading down, a ladt stopped me and asked what capsule number I was in. I told her I was at 318. She looked puzzled and alarmed and told me that she was doing her nightly walk around the sleeping floors of the womens area and found it concerning that I was snoring loud. I've stayed at other capsule hotels and I can for sure tell you folks that people (even girls) do snore more louder that I do. There were drunken european girls who accidentally went to my room. I told her that and all she said was at least they didnt harm you. Im like really. Complain about my snoring but ignore my safety? No thx.

The room that i rented was spacious and luggages are easily stored. There’s a safe box if you need to keep anything valuable while travelling. The location is right behind the karasuma main street and there is a subway station nearby. The bed sheet is a little thin but hey, you get what you pay for

Close to Hankyu stn and subway stn and walkable to Gion and Kyoto Jr stn. Surpasses any capsule hotels in terms of responsiveness (emails enquiries), cleanliness, number of basins, toilets and shower booths, and amenities (bath Towel AND face towel at no ridiculous extra chg, toothbrush, shower sponge, facial cleanser and lotion..) and lounge where u can eat cup noodles. This was my second stay and will be third when I come back to. Kyoto.

Value and Convenience”
The cabins are more spacious than the usual capsul hostels. Though still challenged for space for luggage and other personal items, the height offers more breathing space. It’s difficult to pack the luggage inside without disturbing other guests. Maybe a guest lounge or empty room should be provided where guests can freely pack their luggage. The location is very near the Metro station so it’s so convenient for travellers. The place is clean and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. Great value for money.

I thought I`ll give facilities 4stars because the shower is in a different floor but then they make it up with all the little things like face cleanser, cotton buds haha. Also since there is only 1 set laundry everyone has to wait in line. Anyhow, all was perfect I love daily cleanup/bedsheet change and the night clothes. Perfect!

Thank you for putting me far from the entrance door in a quiet corner. Although I didn't stay overnight due to tight schedule. I needed a place to put my equipment and a place to take shower or short rest..would like to stay here in the future if I go to Kyoto again. It's very easy to find because it's only 100 meters from subway station exit no. 5.

Very good”
Staff were very helpful and friendly on check-in. I recently stayed at First Cabin Kyobashi in Tokyo, and this branch was a little lacking in some aspects. The mattress was uncomfortable (uneven and could feel the springs) and the shower room set-up could have been better. However, having stairs instead of having to always rely on lifts was a big plus. Overall, still very solid for the price.

It was an interesting experience. ”
The main reason why we booked this hotel is that we were interested on knowing what it was like staying in a capsule hotel. We had second thoughts of not booking this hotel as it is not like a conventional one. Meaning, the space for us to move around is going to be very limited. There is a concern about privacy as you are basically sleeping next to a stranger, your cabin doesn’t have locks and toilet and bath is shared with other guests. However, we pushed through with our booking and did not regret it. Yes, the sleeping room was small, but not as small as I have expected, I can still easily move around. The bed was very comfortable. Yes, you have to avoid creating noise as there are other guests, but that is nothing really compared to the experience and come to think of it, it helped me become more mindful of others. The toilet and bathroom was shared, however, it is always clean. Overall, I had a great experience with my stay.

I wanted to try staying in a capsule hotel but was not ready for tiny pods so was glad to find one that has spacious cabins. Room is clean but the bed and pillow are too hard for me. The air is a bit warm but there's a button next to the bed which you can use to adjust the air flow. Shower rooms are on another floor which is not too convenient. If you're taking subway to Shijo, use Exit 4 for lift access, otherwise use Exit 5 which is only a few steps away from the hotel. Overall it's a good place to experience a capsule hotel but would not recommend for staying longer than a couple of days.
