    A lot of nice free drinks! It was near a lot of arcades, restaurants, red light district, etc. I think the computer areas were pretty cool but I didn't get a chance to experience it, since I can't understand japanese and have no computer games to play. It was my first time being in a netcafe though, so maybe this is normal.

    Beware of people outside trying to get you to go to their clubs and such! I didn't like how the capsules are kind of small compared to others I have been in. My feet were touching the edge of the outside of the capsule. There was also some annoying foreign guy talking on the phone in his capsule at 3am, but I'm sure he's not still there. I also didn't like how I had to pay to take a shower, with the time limit being kind of short (30 minutes?) because I have to get my clothes, walk downstairs, change my shoes, and put them in the locker before finally reaching the bathroom with showers. Then, since it was my first time, I have to figure out how the shower works... >.<

    Location, price

    No place to keep the suitcases safe/locked next to the capsule. The tv inside the capsule takes loads of space and can’t be used unless you pay. Shower needs to be payed separately and it’s on a timer.

    Staff are young and friendly, one staff member spoke great English others just basic, the cafe part of the hotel is awesome, couches and Power point's everywhere and best part you can get unlimited Tea, coffee, variety of soft drinks, cold filtered water, orange juice AND ice cream machine :) step foot out the front door and your in the heart of Kabukicho looking at Godzilla on top of toho cinema building. For the location and all that's available to you as a guest its great value at 4,000yen a night or cheaper if you book online beforehand. Would definently stay here again

    Location is convenient but that's about it.

    Hidden fees on everything from watching TV to taking a shower. Strict limits on shower time means they treat you like a child. I was kicked out one minute after check out time when I merely wanted to use the internet briefly to plan my day. Also, why cash only in this day and age?

    The hostel was very clean and looks fantastic compared to other ones I've stayed in. But honestly I think convenience, facilities and customer service are far more important than aesthetics. Everything this hostel was lacking. The capsule was spacious and comfortable enough and it is in a good location if you want to stay close to the centre of Tokyo.

    In my opinion my stay at this hostel just felt inconvenient and there was a general feeling of distrust that I didn't enjoy. For example, when checking in they give you a rule binder to read which is about 3 pages. If you want to shower you have to pay for it and you can only have 30mins in the shower room (which is separate to the capsule room) for showering and drying / getting ready, while the front desk keeps your key to the capsule area. You also have to return your towel with the shower room keys and pay again if you need to use one. So if, like me, you shower before bed; be warned you won't have a towel handy for when you wash your face the next morning. I have stayed in my share of capsule hostels now and I've never had to pay extra for a shower before. I don't know if this is maybe due to the fact that it doubles as an internet cafe, so they have people who might come in and only want a shower (not a bed). But there were separate shower rooms in the secure capsule area too so why not just leave those ones open to guests who have paid to spend the night? I also found the room incredibly noisy with people coming and going throughout the night. I usually never struggle to fall asleep and it takes a lot to wake me but I barely slept at all here. I actually don't think the 3 page rule book had a note about keeping quiet during certain hours. The light in the room was always on too, so I think it kind of gave the impression that people were free to bustle around at all times. Finally, there is nowhere secure to store your luggage/backpack. Japan is very safe, I know, but I think the hostel should offer something. Especially considering it has such a high turnover of guests throughout the nights.
