Dark and small”
Place is too dark even during broad daylight. Have to use a torchlight to find the switch for the lamp. Whole place looks very old and rundown. Staff is not very helpful and gives off the "I am just doing my job" vibe. The only 2 pros are the cost and the location.
The place is old with smell but the location is good ”
I only stayed for one night because I need to take a very early bus at the Tokyo station. The location is relatively good and the staff can speak basic English. The cons are the building, room and capsule condition is pretty old. The place does have the musky smell. The smoking zone is on the first floor so I can immediately smell the cigarette once I enter the lobby. The bathroom is only on the first floor so I didn’t bother to use since I’m only staying for a night. There is a toilet at every floor. The toilet bowl is the squatting kind. Toothbrush and paste, towels, and gown is provided. Wifi is only on the first floor, I cannot access on the 5th. Stay for the convenience not for the hotel.
Basic but clean and good location”
Good for an overnight stay , did not use the shower facilities but they looked pretty basic. It was quiet on our floor and the capsules were spacious and clean. Would stay again if I had a short transit and need a place to crash. It is no frills so don’t expect anything flash.
This capsule hotel is walking distance from the Tokyo station, even lugging around a big suitcase, it is quite accessible. There are several vending machines by the door and several restaurants along the street and a block over. The guy at the reception area speaks passable English and there are English instructions on packets provided. The capsule itself is cozy though the place is a bit run down. There are curtains for a fair amount of privacy and lockers for your luggage. I personally have a bit of an issue with the lockers and bathroom situation. The lockers are typical and made of steel so it's quite impossible to be considerate of other sleeping guests because of all the noise it makes, and clumsy ole me doesn't really help in keeping the unintentional noise level down. As for the bathroom - only floor urinals are provided on the room with the capsules (mine being on the 5th floor). Shower room and actual toilet with an actual seat are on the ground floor right behind the receptionist desk. Another small difficulty I experienced was the elevator. The elevator only goes up to the 4th floor. The room assigned was on the 5th and I had a large suitcase that needed to be carried up the steps. Though, on the plus side, the steps were short and it was difficult but manageable. Other than that, First Inn Kyobashi seems to be a good and safe place to stay for a quick stop over. They provide pajamas, a towel and a face towel. Disposable toiletries are available in the bathroom. The place could use an upgrade but it's kept clean. Regular cab fare to Namba Station (for those heading to KIX and taking the Nankai) is around ¥1,800 give or take. We decided to take a cab directly to Namba rather than drag heavy suitcases again through the street to Tokyo station. Would I recommend this place? Sure, for a night or two in Tokyo.
the receptionist is not knowledgeable in English language. The bed was clean. it surroundings of the bed was a bit dusty. we were given bathrobe, a pair of slippers, and a locker. the common washroom on the first flow needs to be cleaned up.
It was really quiet and good”
I recommend this place if you want a quick one night stay in Japan. It is near Tokyo station and you can head to the busstop that takes you to the Narita airport by walking a short distance. It is also very near Kyobashi station. Exit 6 and then walk straight and turn left. It took me 3 minutes to reach the area. I chose this place because it was my second last night in Japan and I wanted to just have a quick rest before heading home. It was also near the main street and you can hail a cab to Tsukiji in the early morning. I only didn't like the hotel opening at 5pm and ending at 10am next morning. This was because I reached the area at 3pm and with my heavy bagpack and all, I wondered around before sitting outside to wait to enter the area. Your toilets and bathroom are shared. Toilets are traditional squatting toilets. Showers for males are located at the B1 while for females, the 1st floor. The staff speak reasonably good english. It was overall a good experience.
Run down facility ”
Even though the location is quite convenient, the facility is old and has seen better days. For that price I would expect better.
Nice location but old place”
The location is great and the capsules are comfortable. It smells dust a lot but for one night it's ok. I did not try the bathroom as I read the other comments
Old style capsule hotel, great experience”
If you would like to try the experience of a capsule hotel of the 80s or 90s this is the place to be as almost nothing changed (old television in the capsule, old am/fm radio, and so on). Don't get me wrong, we really liked the experience. Simply do not expect an high-tech capsule hotel. In addition, this is one of the only capsule hotels accepting males AND females guests. Towels, pijamas and slippers are provided. In the basement (for males) you will find shower gel and shampoo near th shower as well as toothbrush. Just remember that you can not check in before 6 pm and that it is closed on sunday, not all the infos are provided on agoda so maybe this point can be ameliorated. Location is also very good, walking distance from Tokyo train station. Ideal if you have an early train. Bring earplugs with you as capsules are not isolated.
Very close to Tokyo station. 5 mins walk to Tokyo station Yasu South gate”
I stayed here once and told myself not to return. It is probably one of the first capsule style hotel ever cause it is very very old. The TV is not working in the pod. There is no internet in the capsule only in the main lobby. There is no hot water for the sink where you wash your hand so in the winter, it can be really cold. The price is cheap so if you need to be at Tokyo station super early, this is a good choice. I will not recommend anyone to stay here but my trip was delayed and i have to book something last minute and i returned one more time but they do need to update their facility, big time.
One of a kind experience”
Since we were visiting Japan, I took the chance of staying at a capsule hotel. There aren't many co-ed capsule hotels in Tokyo so we were lucky to have booked this hotel. On our way here, we got lost due to confusion of the directions amd because the hotel sign was really small. Dont be afraid to ask directions from people, just speak slowly so they can understand you. Take note that they have a time schedule for the use of the comfort rooms.
good value, good location”
staff hardly speak english, place is clean, makeup room is a nice surprise. please note you need to clear all your things and leave the hotel before 10am everyday, dosent matter how many days you are going to stay.
Capsule hotel wonderful stay”
Very pleasant. It was clean and they were very organized. We went in and had all papers and reservation all ready and prepared. It was a nice suppose to find slippers and pajamas for us to sleep comfortably. The bed and sheets with the comforter were very crisp and clean. It was a pleasant surprise to see a light, TV, and outlet in my capsule. That was above and beyond what I imagined a capsule hotel to be.
Choice of bugget stay”
Good choice if limited budget. We are surprise hotel is closed when about to check in at afternoon. Suggested that staff to be at counter on 24 hours basis. Surprise to know that hotel is closed from 10am to 5pm, hope that can management can review on this matter. Bathroom to be sharing among male & female with specific time. Suggested that may consider female taking bath time is prolong. As we facing difficulty waiting for take bath after 12am.Thanks
When you are on the move”
It's an amazing place to stay a night or two when you are light-packed and on the move. I had 21 hours transfer in tokyo and left my luggage on the airport, so it was easy. The location is amazing, there is a subway station in 200m. And there is also the food court cross the street with many local restaurants, definitely worth visiting. So overall Kybayashi is the best place for one night stay. And by the way don't mind the little space, even if you get 5 times more expensive room, it won't be much bigger in Tokyo :)
Brag about your capsule experience”
Many types of unique accommodation in japan and capsule tops the chart for great stories to share with friends. Travel as a couple and First Inn is thoughtful enough to put us together. Difficult to find other capsule in Tokyo that allow female occupants. However be prepared to be woken up by heavy food steps of drunk Japanese male checking in at night. Another point to note, you can visit the Tuna auction from this hotel. Just about 20-30 min walk
Value for money”
Well, this hotel is located in a good location, not too crowded. It's not too difficult too find but the hotel's name on the signboard is in Japanese but it has English one in front of the hotel. You will need to come at front to see it.
Fast, Cheap & Easy”
My best friend (a female) and I (a female) flew in to Narita Airport and took the Narita Express to Tokyo Station. The inn was a short walk from the train station. Unlike many capsule hotels, this one allows women. We needed a place to sleep for a few hours before heading to Nikko and figured this would we our chance to try out a capsule. The hotel staff was super nice and had a sheet of paper in English that explained where everything in the building was located (showers, toilets, etc.). The one thing we managed to screw up (and this was a pretty big screw up) was showering in the men's shower. We were told to let the front desk know if/when we wanted the shower door to be locked so no one could come in. There were three stalls in the shower room and someone was in the middle one when we walked in. I started getting ready to get in one of the other showers when a dude walked in. It wasn't till I got out of the shower and there were dudes everywhere that I realized we totally did something wrong. It was the joke for the rest of the trip, but I guess if I could give advice to future female travelers, have them show you in advance exactly where the showers are located. Otherwise, it was a pretty cool / weird experience and a comfortable one at that.
great location and staff!”
facilities are not A1 but for its price, location and hospitality it A1 for me! staff can't really speak English but is very accomodating. I already checked out and just left my luggage til my night bus leaves for Kyoto, went back soaking wet from the rain and asked if I can use the bath room to change to dry clothes. A staff handed me a towel and said I should take a shower! and he didnt charge me for it!
Good capsule hotel experience”
Very good first-time capsule hotel experience. Stayed there one night during winter and it was warm inside the hotel. The hot sauna in the hotel also helped a lot. Location is very convenient and easy to find. It is also very clean!
