  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Good location with convenience shops around, near to metro station. I stayed 1 night but I heard the staff mentioned to others that daily check-out is required for staying multiple nights and I think that would be quite a hassle. Ladies' capsule is quiet enough for a good sleep unless you are a light sleeper and easily disturbed. It also depends on luck whether you have someone noisy sleeping near your capsule. Capsule itself is spacious altho' it could feel slightly stuffy with the blinds pulled down. Pyjamas is comfortable. Shower room may get crowded and some waiting time is needed.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The hotel is great and excellent value for money. It’s in a quiet neighbourhood but very close to a metro station (3-min walk) and well-connected. It is impeccably clean and the amenities are great. The staff is very helpful. The only thing I didn’t like was one of the other guests in the capsule room kept making noise (packing and unpacking her things and rustling plastic bags) until past midnight and then her phone started going off at 6.30 am. The hotel itself was great and I would definitely stay there again!

    Great choice for hostel.

    This hostel is really good. Location is near Tokyo's Sensoji Temple, and near subway stations. There are food outlets open for 24 hours. The only thing I do not appreciate is the little storage for your luggage under the beds where there is a 6-inch tall thing from the ground, so you always have lift your luggages up a little to draw them out (you cannot swiftly roll them in or out your personal storage, which for me is a bit of a hassle.) But all other else, everything is good. I particularly LOVE the small bag of toiletries they provide for you. And the sleeping clothes are comfortable as well,

    快適でした

    プライベート空間はミニマムでしたが共用部分は清潔で快適でした。鍵つきロッカーもあり、アメニティもあるので荷物は最小限でいい感じです。

    広くて清潔なホテル

    いいところ  ・施設が広くて綺麗。  ・カプセルのブースも広い。  ・共用スペースも広い。  ・フリードリンクがある。   (コーヒー、紅茶、煎茶、レモン水)  ・セキュリティがしっかりしている。  ・フロントの感じがいい。 ダメダメなところ  ・寝るところとロッカーが同じ場所なので   音は気になる。  ・フロアは絨毯だが、意外と足音が響く。 総評   雷門から徒歩3分程で立地もよく、   施設が広くて綺麗。   コストパフォーマンスが優れている。   エレベーターが男女別だったり、   トイレやカプセルに入るために   カードキーが必要で女性にも安心。   おすすめできる宿。
