Fabulous 8.6 From 318 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Super modern, clean, and comfy. Great service and easy to access Namba and Dotonbori areas which are super popular for shopping and eating. It's in the middle of train stations so be aware of walking a bit to get to the metro but it's not terrible at all

Osaka round 2
Amazing hostle , great value for your money, everything felt modern. Can't beat the location and came with a cafe that had some type of collab with NCT cup Kpop holders. Washroom felt like a spa. Maybe just add fan's to the capsule as it can get extremely warm.

Very Good 8.0
Good location for the price
The location was good and there were a lot of amenities outside the hotel but the mattress in the capsules was too thin and quite unsupportive receptionists were good and very helpful when I needed something answered
Ross, gb6 night trip
Poor 2.0
It was so bad like sleeping in a casket.
Feel like sleeping in a casket The rules is too strict No TV in capsule no food nor drink in capsule. Unable to relax and chill inside because of the rules. Not like the capsule hotel I went in Ueno which is 100times better than here. Staff gives weird and discriminating looks to foreign people.
