Surprisingly this place makes a lot of sense. It's cheaper than a hostel, the capaule provides a degree of privacy and potentially a better night's sleep than a hostel. There's hot water so you can at least make hot drinks and noodles. There's free toiletries,...More

We stayed there for one night during our Tokyo trip. Well - out of the 3 places we stayed it was the worst one, but certainly the cheapest one. The capsules itself are quiet a nice idea, I had enough space to put my backpack...More

Staff didn't speak much English but tried to communicate. Wouldn't hold our luggage but had ¥400 lockers that fit 3 large suitcases, can only access it once and then have to pay to lock it again. As 3 females we were the only ones on...More

The capsules were exactly what I expected them to be based on previous reviews. Room enough to stretch my legs (but not my arms) and sit up. I even kept my large travel bag in the capsule with me rather than in a locker on...More

In Asakusa, hard to find due to some name changes, female capsules, shared bath, own tv and radio and good sound isolation. Didn't felt claustrophobic at all. Private lockers so you only take what is really needed to sleep to the capsule, but things are...More

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping

As I remember, the locker automatically re- charges you after 12 hours so you'd have to pay again before you open it.

No curfew, but they have a very strict time for you to clear out of bed (10am) so that they can clean. The staff is annoyingly inflexible on this rule. If you're planning to party/work late, wouldn't recommend staying... More
