Great place to stay on the cheap. Rooms were small but comfortable. Decor was modern and hotel was super clean. Plenty of amenities always stocked...razor, toothbrush, pajamas. Super happy!
Only thing is it was a little far from the Shinjuku station and like everyone said, tough to find. If you can, checkout the picture directions on the Japanese version of the website...they were my saving grace! Suggest the hotel add them in English too!
It was convenient, economical and fitted our purpose for the trip.
Breakfast service was unexpectedly good. It would be more convenient if there was a public telephone with prepaid card, since telephone card machine was in the hotel lobby.
Smooth check-in with a fluent English-speaking person at the desk. My friends (group of 5, 3 men and 2 women) all had a great time. Having had the female experience, the capsules and communal bathrooms with matching pajamas were like something out of a YA fiction book set in a futuristic society where everything is streamlined, organized, and matching. The bathrooms were super clean, with private bathroom stalls and fancy Japanese toilets. Even toothbrushes were provided. The guys were on a different floor, and two of them didn't shower because they didn't feel comfortable being nude next to other dudes. Apparently, the guys have an open shower instead of private stalls.
The rooms themselves had more than enough space for a 5'3" person, and since I slept with my feet to the entrance, had no issues with noise at night. Definitely a worthwhile experience to try at least once.
Pretty good choice for anyone staying in Shinjuku. The room is small, but typical for a Japanese hotel. The staff were great with English. They'll keep your bags for you if you need to check in or check out early, which is really nice.
The WiFi signal isn't the strongest, but it was really nice to have. Location is great. 8 minutes from Shinjuku station, right in between East and West exit.
IMPORTANT - My Expedia confirmation stated that check in starts at 11AM. THIS IS WRONG. Check in is at 3PM.
First time staying in a capsule hotel and the experience was great, especially the Japanese style bathing room. I was timid at first but after trying it, it was incredibly enjoyable. If you are someone who requires your own personal space either step out of your comfort zone or go somewhere else. But for what you get, in this location, for the price, it really is unbeatable. Highly recommend, just be prepared to deal with other people and their customs and you will be totally fine.
