Not a hostel
Better looking than many 4 star hotels. Shared baths, but spacious and clean with thoughtful design.

Clean, quiet, quality.
Best of both worlds - Hostel prices, hotel privacy. Unlike Space Q, which uses the same Star Wars looking capsule wall panel system, but is a noisy, dirty hostel with cramped bathrooms, this place truly feels like a hotel. Beautifully carpeted floors reduce noise, spacious stylish baths with a dry area to stow clothes and toiletries while you shower. And the showerhead is a luxurious rainfall type not the cheap assault-by-1000-needles spray or low pressure dribble you find in hostels.

Everything you need within arm's reach
The capsule hotel itself is great, but the construction going on outside the window means you might want to bring your earplugs.

Nice but a bit too noisy
The actual capsule was nicer than I thought. However noise was a bug issue during my stay. The capsule provides no noise reduction and you can hear all that is happening on Liverpool St which is a really busy road. Not to menion if you are on the bottom capsule you can hear every turn of the person sleeping on the upper capsule and when they climb up and down and stairs. After the first night I realised why the front desk sells ear plugs.
