All good except sound insulation”
Pro: Location is just in front of Kumamoto JR station, easily accessible. Facilities are basic yet sufficient. Con: there is barely sound insulation, can be noisy at night. Solutions: use the free ear plugs to solve this. :)
Thank you very much for staying at HOTEL THE GATE KUMAMOTO. However, we apologize for the inconvenience caused by the sound. Due to the structure, the sound is more likely to be heard, so we take the utmost care to thoroughly patrol and give our customers a good stay, but We will also do our best more from now on. Thank you for posting while busy. We look forward to see you again. HOTEL THE GATE KUMAMOTO Front desk Takamura
Comfortable and great location”
Good facilities and has a good location. Walking distance to Kumamoto station and busstop going to the airport. You get a private area even though it is a capsule hotel. Highly recommended if you have a tight budget.
Thank you for staying at HOTEL THE GATE KUMAMOTO. Thank you for your rating. There are things in front of Kumamoto Station, and there are stops such as express busses in about 2 minutes on foot. It is cheaper than a business hotel and can be used in a private space than a regular capsule hotel.Please use our hotel when you come to Kumamoto again. Thank you for posting.

Convenient for transition. ”
Close to train station and tram stop but not close to main attractions and bus centre. Great facilities, comfortable bed, clean room and bathroom. The style of the hotel is “capsule-like”, even though there’s curtain for privacy but the ceiling is open style, the noise level will depend entirely on other staying guests. It’s a good place for transition.
Thank you for staying at HOTEL THE GATE KUMAMOTO. The location just in front of Kumamoto Station is one of our pride. As you say, there are trams and train stops in front of our hotel. Although the hotel is a little away from the tourist destination, the traffic environment is excellent, so it is convenient to go anywhere. We were relieved that you were able to spend comfortably during your stay. Because the ceiling is open compared to a regular capsule hotel, the hotel has low sound insulation, but I think it is a hotel where you can spend more private space in your room. In addition, please use our hotel when you came to Kumamoto. Thank you for posting. HOTEL THE GATE KUMAMOTO Front desk Shimomura
Perfect Hotel just across the road from Kumamoto Station”
Absolutely great service, with free wifi channel that plays anime, movies etc (but I didnt utilise it). Everything is provided for: free toothbrushes, headphones, earplugs, pyjamas.. with many toilet and individual shower cubicles so that you don't have to wait for others. Staff are really polite, and speak good english. Lockers are huge enough to put your entire luggage in, so you don't have to be worried about security! Coin laundry services are 24h (great!) at 300 yen for washing, and 100 yen for the dryer. As many ave mentioned, the room is spotless clean and a pleasure to return back to at the end of the day. A really good base if you want to visit Mount Aso for a day trip. This hotel was really the highlight of my trip, and I regretted not staying an extra night more. Take note though, you are still able to hear sounds from other customers, and footsteps walking along the corridor, I would still definitely recommend this place.
Thank you for staying at HOTEL THE GATE KUMAMOTO. Kumamoto Station is about a 2-minute walk away.Because there is no TV in the room, I started a free video distribution service.Just connect to the hotel's Wi-Fi and you'll be able to watch movies and anime right away.We offer a wide variety of amenities.Toilets and shower rooms are shared, but we think you can use them without waiting for other guests. Thank you for your compliments for connector. We were very relieved to see you comfortably staying comfortably during your stay.As you say, the traffic environment is so good that it is a very convenient place to go to tourist attractions.We are sorry for the inconvenience with regard to the sound.Due to the structure, the ceiling of the room is open, so you may hear sound from the surrounding rooms. Many compliments are very nice for us.The warm words we receive from our customers are encouraging to us.Thank you for your post. HOTEL THE GATE KUMAMOTO Front desk Shimomura
A lovely stay”
Maybe quite noisy (because of the neighbourhood) Supply of pyjamas is a value added
Thank you for staying at HOTEL THE GATE KUMAMOTO. Having a wonderful stay for you is a pleasure for us. However, We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the noise.Because the ceiling of the room is open, you may hear noise from the surrounding rooms.We are careful about it when we notice it during the patrol. However, we were sorry that our consideration did not reach. From now on, we will thoroughly carry out patrols and calls to customers so that customers can spend comfortably. Pajamas and amenities are available free of charge. There are many types available, so please use them. Thank you for posting. We look forward to seeing you again.

So far worthy”
facility is all good, but the place for providing free water is isolated from the bedding and shower area which mean u were forced to pay and get water in the vender machine , or u drink the tap water. the hotel had put up a notice for telling tourists that tap water is safe for drinking without boiling. I do drink it a lots and feel all good . So far , this hotel worth a shoot, go for it if u want to save the money.
Thank you for staying at HOTEL THE GATE KUMAMOTO. For drinks, water is available in the lobby for guests to drink freely. Kumamoto is famous for drinking tap water. Because water coming out of the water supply in Kumamoto is underground water. There may be some resistance at first, but the water in Kumamoto is clean and easy to drink. We also have vending machines on site, so if you would like to drink juice or tea, we will show you that. By all means, when you come to Kumamoto again, please try drinking the famous water of Kumamoto. I highly recommend it. Thank you for posting. We look forward to seeing you again.

Just opposite the JR station. The hotel is more like a capsule hotel. You get your own bed and a locker in a small space partitioned by thin walls, no door lock. Basically you can hear your neighbors very clearly. And if get a room near the automatic door, ask for a new one. It just keeps opening and closing all night and it's annoying unless you're a heavy sleeper. What I liked about this place is the shower room, quite spacious, bright and well looked after. They even have PJs for guests.
Thank you for staying at HOTEL THE GATE KUMAMOTO. The location just in front of Kumamoto Station is one of the pride of our hotel. Unlike our regular capsule hotel, I think that you can stay in a private space. There is a locker in the room so you can go out with confidence even if you leave your luggage. The entrance is a curtain. There is also a room with a keyed door, so we recommend a room with a door for those who are concerned about curtains. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We are very sorry for disturbing your sleep time. In the future, we will be careful about the room location assignment. As the shower room is a common area, connectors regularly checked and cleaning. We will strive for daily cleaning so that all our customers can spend comfortably. Thank you for posting. We look forward to seeing you again. HOTEL THE GATE KUMAMOTO Front desk Shimomura
This hotel is just across the kumamoto station. You need not to worry that the attractions are far from the hotel coz the tram is very convenient. Nice staff they help me very well. You can buy the one day pass for tram from the hotel. They have free toiletries. Very nice bathroom and clean!!! Top of the line. Room was well lit.
Thank you for staying at HOTEL THE GATE KUMAMOTO. The word "perfect hotel" from you is very honored for us. The hotel is in front of Kumamoto Station. You can go downtown immediately by tram. You can buy a day ticket for the tram by tram. A variety of amenities are available. Shower room and toilet are common, so we check and clean every day. The brightness of the entire room can not be adjusted. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we would appreciate your understanding. HOTEL THE GATE KUMAMOTO Front desk Shimomura
Good location, reasonable price, clean”
Located conveniently just about 5 minutes walk from Kumamoto Station and Tram Station. The bathroom is clean, tidy and big. Bed is big and comfortable. Pajamas, towel and slippers are provided as well. A very good experience for those looking to stay in a budget yet comfortable 'modified capsule' hotel. Only downside is that it can get a little noisy at times, but that's expect-able from the concept of the hotel. Definitely recommended for its price!
Thank you for staying at HOTEL THE GATE KUMAMOTO. The Kumamoto Station and tram stop is right in front of our hotel. The shower room is especially checked because of the common space. We were relieved that you could use the bed comfortably. There are plenty of amenities available. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We will continue to pay attention to the sound, especially during the patrol. Thank you for posting. looking forward to seeing you coming again. HOTEL THE GATE KUMAMOTO front desk Shimomura
Fantastic Staff, Super Clean and Strategically Located Next to Transportation”
Hostels and dorms are definitely not the places where I usually stay but The Gate Kumamoto made me rethink. Super friendly and professional staff, despite the amount of customers this place is spotless (the Japanese cleanliness), comfortable and strategically located next to all means of transportation (in front of the train station and the bus stops to get out of town and the airport, the tram to reach other parts of town).
Thank you very much for staying at HOTEL THE GATE KUMAMOTO. We are also very honored to hear from you wonderful words about the staff response. Having such wonderful words is what encourages our staff. We will continue to strive every day to satisfy our customers. Our hotel is right in front of Kumamoto Station, and you can use buses, trams, Shinkansen and various transportation facilities. It is near by 10 minutes by tram from downtown of Kumamoto, and around Kumamoto Station becomes more convenient because commercial facility is born in future. We look forward to seeing you soon.

It' a Dorm!”
It's very clean and the staff are super nice but make no mistake, you do NOT get a room to yourself. Even though the listing states "room", it's a bunk bed with curtains in a a doorm. We had one bunk bed for the two of us in a cubicle that could be closed with a curtain. Again, very clean and nice but know that it is NOT a room.
Thank you for staying at HOTEL THE GATE KUMAMOTO. The front connector patrols the inside of the hotel for guests can spend comfortably. At that time, we are cleaning and checking the building. Thank you for your compliment to the connector's response. Warm words from our customers are our encouragement. Our hotel is a capsule hotel. The room has a curtain at the entrance and the beds use bunk beds. Because the ceiling is open, it is not a complete private room. However, because there is a locker in the room and you can spread the luggage in the room, we think you can feel more private space. Thank you for posting. We'll wait for you to come again.

The c/p value is extremely high. Location is very good, 2 to 3 mins to the railway and tram station. The facilities are quite new and well-prepared. Everything you needed are provided so that you can just walk in with empty hand and stay there. The bathroom is clean and tidy, with a television inside. The bed is comfortable. There may be a little bit noisy because there is only partition between rooms, so please bring along with your ear plug.

This hotel offers comfortable beds with closing curtains, private lamps, and outlets to charge your devices. Private lockers are provided, and coin laundry is available. The main lobby also features a cool bar with a fish tank. You're staying right next to the train station, so there's no need to worry about missing your connection. The location is a bit far from Kumamoto's main shopping arcade and most of the city's sites, but regular trolley service (170 yen one way) makes up for that.

Good bed with privacy”
For single travelers, the bunk beds were designed to open on opposite sides, so you basically have a private area to yourself and a big locker behind curtain. The also have other room settings with different layouts for people travelling in groups. The location is great, just across a footbridge (with elevators and escalators) from Kumamoto station in what looks like a high end apartment block. The facilities are new and clean. Staff are super friendly and they speak English. Highly recommended.

It is located less than 5 minutes walk from the station. The hotel was very clean and new, and I had a very comfortable bed to sleep on. Even though my 'room' was only separated from all the other travellers by a simple curtain, it still felt very private and it was a very quiet stay.
