This is a very cheap hotel, with nice clean capsules, free toothbrush and razor blade, showers and so forth. It's in asakusa right near the sky tree and a little walk from the tsukuba express that will get you to Akihabara. You can also walk about a mile from ueno station to get here. For the price I don't think you can beat this place very easily in Tokyo.

Room Tip: You might not want to be in asakusa it's a seedier side of Tokyo. There's a lot of "girl bars"...

Excellent location:
About a 4-minute walk from Metro Ginza Line [Denenmachi Station].
It is very convenient to travel between Ueno, Akihabara and Ginza.
It's about a 6-minute walk from Toei Asakusa Station (elevator entrance).
It is a good choice to travel between Haneda & Narita.
Public area:
The social space is bright and spacious.
The most commendable thing is the bathroom. Although there are only 4 bathing stalls, it is unusually spacious and makes you wash away after a long day.
Accommodation space:
Capsules are roughly divided into two categories. Generally, there are upper and lower capsules. The space is really oppressive, but it is still within a reasonable range.
The indoor air-conditioning is extremely strong. Even in the summer of August, the capsule is not stuffy and you even need to put on a thin quilt when falling asleep.
A high-end capsule, the interior height is about twice that of an ordinary capsule, and there is luggage storage space directly underneath.
Pretty good design.
shortcoming:
The counter is only open after 10 a.m. and closes at 10 p.m. Visitors arriving early in the morning should be careful.
Washing machines & dryers are not available. Partners who have needs in this regard must also be considered.

Facilities are very well organized although it's not a place to meet people as everybody just keep to themselves. My only problem was the mattress was too thin. I felt like sleeping on wood. If you don't have back problems then you will be fine.

Si viajas a Japón y no pruebas unas cápsulas no sabes lo q te pierdes. Bueno bonito barato y más limpio de lo que encontraras nunca viajando ni en hoteles de alta categoría.
Sin duda una experiencia q merece la pena y que igual incluso repito.

Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das gesamte Hotel ist sehr sauber. Täglich wird die kleine Kapsel gereinigt.
Handtücher, Pyjama, Shampoo etc. stehen kostenlos zur Verfügung.
Die Kapseln sind leider sehr hellhörig. Während meines Aufenthaltes waren ein paar Frauen im Zimmer, die wenig Rücksicht nahmen und nachts die Türen zuschlagen ließen, getrampelt haben.. dementsprechend oft wurde ich wach. Mit oropax lässt sich das Problem aber lösen.

スタッフの応対は文句なしに満足。最寄り駅から徒歩3分の場所にあり、食事には困らない。人によるが、ベッドの硬さや枕の高さが丁度いい(一番はナインアワーズ)。ランドリーも自販機もあるが、どちらもキャッシュレス決済には非対応。寝るときに客室内にある空気清浄機の音が気になるくらいだ。

Stayed a few days when we first arrived in Japan. Nice hotel, but nothing incredible. Would recommend for anyone working within a budget that needs somewhere you only need for sleeping/resting - was a nice place to stay when first arriving in Tokyo and getting used to our surroundings.

都内で他にもよくある上下両隣に就寝スペースがあり、ロールカーテンで仕切るタイプの宿泊施設。2階にコモンスペースがあり、長〜いテーブルと椅子、ソファー、TV、飲料水(無料。お茶、コーヒー、あと2種類選択肢がありましたが失念)が利用できます。性別でエレベーターが別れていて、カードキーが無いと作動しません。メトロ田原町駅の近くですし、サクッと便利に泊まれました。

浅草寺に近い新しいカジュアルホテル。 8階までがカプセルタイプ、その上の9階はシャワーとトイレ付きの部屋。エレベーターは男女に分かれカードキーがなければ上に上がれない。2階にラウンジあり。部屋は非常に清潔でシャワールームも明るい。ダブルルームは機能的だが部屋自体は狭い。
ユニークなのはチェックインする前に玄関で靴を脱がなければならず、館内はエレベーターだろうが廊下だろうが靴なしで歩くこと(簡易スリッパは提供されます)。ちなみにレセプションデスクには英語を話す外国人スタッフも見かけました。
