Very good 8.0
I stayed here for the week. I had missed my flight on Saturday from Seoul to Tokyo and couldn't come. I arrived to Asakusa Sunday night and told the staff my entire situation and they were so accommodating and understanding. They refunded me from Saturday and let me keep my current booking. The staff were very welcoming whenever I'd arrive and leave. They're open 24 hours, so that's good if you're a night owl and want to explore when things have quieted down at night. Before you enter the hostel, you have to open a door that feels like a hidden door into another world! And there's books--EVERYWHERE! It's like sleeping in a library! The beds are very comfortable and I slept soundly. Though the capsules are a bit warm since there isn't any A/C inside of them. So bring a small room fan you can easily plug in inside of your capsule. The tenants were also considerate noise-wise but still bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper, like myself. It works wonders. There's no storage space to lock important things in, so be aware of that. Though it's Japan, so no one will bother your things. The location of the hostel is super convenient as you're just a walk away from Asakusa Temple, Asakusa Station, and Sky Tree. There's lots of places to eat that are foreign friendly. I recommend Ichiban Ramen. It's popular and near the hostel. It's a budget friendly hostel, so I recommend booking. :)

Good 6.0
Good Price, Nice Location & Clean Rooms and facilitates. However, the small fan in the room is terribly noisy (and cover with lots of dust, disgusting) but the air through is so bad once it is off. Since only thin wooden boards between rooms, sound insulation is very bad too. I wear ear plug for the whole night but still sounds from the fan and the man on my top...... Anyway, at this cost, I will recommend for all budget travelers. Thanks.

Comfy Concept Capsule
Wonderful concept for book lovers, nice style execution as well. They had a good variety of books for Japanese and US English readers. I especially appreciate the translated books. If you need Wifi, they have that too. The music added to a nice, chill atmosphere, and it is good that they had blankets for the common area. The capsules were pleasant and warm. Everything looked clean. It wasn't noisy, but it's nice that they offer ear plugs as well. I didn't try anything from the cafe so I can't comment. The location is good as well - very close to Sensoji/Asakusa Kannon, a train station, and a lot of shopping and food. It wasn't all tourist-centric shops either; there were options for places not overly geared towards tourists. My only wish is that both sides had books (see photo). As it is now, only one side has them. I will definitely come again.

Novel Hostel
I very much enjoyed my stay in this hostel. It's very chilled, and great to come back to after a long day exploring Tokyo and just grab a sofa or hide in you capsule bed and read a book in a nice atmosphere. The staff here are all helpful and friendly, and the beds are comfortable and warm, and I had no issues with noise from the street. It would be nice to have a bit more storage space for larger bags though. It's situated above a Starbucks if you need your western coffee, but they do breakfast there as well. It's less than 5 min walk to the subway, has plenty of restaurants around and shopping districts, as well as near to the Senso-ji shrine which looks fantastic at night.

What a cool place to stay - it is incredibly well designed, and attention is paid to the important details, for example great coffee, music, books, and toiletries. Great atmosphere, very well run. The staff are fabulous, super friendly and helpful - nothing is too much trouble. All in all I was delighted - it is what it is as a capsule hotel, however for what it is, it's superb. Oh - and the location is brilliant, just a minute or two away from the Ginza and Asakasa lines, and in one of the most interesting parts of Tokyo.
