Great for a capsule hotel; still a capsule hotel
Has a cool vibe, a nice selection of books, was very clean, and literally a minute's walk from Ikebukuro station, but opening my travel bag to sort through my things was a nightmare in that limited space and you're constantly aware of the presence of other people. Not sure if wifi's better in the common area because I just read books there without using the internet, but in my bed wifi got a little slow&glitchy a few times. You also have to pay about $5 for a towel and toiletries. Overall, if you're traveling really lightly with just a small backpack or something or are already set on staying in a capsule hotel, I'd highly recommend this place, but I'd advise against staying in capsule hotels in general.

Perfect stay
Perfect location right by main train station and the bus stop to the airport (40 minutes bus ride from the airport ), busy area so lots of restaurants and supermarket ! Very unique hostel and friendly staff ! Would definitely recommend

Choose this for the novelty factor only
I admit it - we chose this place for the novelty factor. But in reality, it doesn't really work so well. I'm personally not a fan of capsule hotels, so this review may be a bit biased. Ear plugs are provided because there will be music playing until 12 midnight. There was also someone doing some cleaning past midnight. You're only separated by a thin curtain hence ear plugs are a must otherwise you can hear EVERYTHING. It was quite dusty and stuffy inside the capsule and I ended up having to open the curtain a little bit but that meant the light shone through the capsule. Toilets are decent. Books were mostly in Japanese. There was a nice chill out lounge space which provided some instagram worthy shots. I definitely won't be staying back here again especially for the high price. You also have to pay an additional 500 JPY if you didn't bring your towel and toiletries and want a set.

Amazing staff, reallllly cool themed hostel. Very quiet - as a library should be! It was great but the entire space is VERY narrow. I am 5ft7in at 145ilbs and it was hard for me to be comfortable here. Facilities and places to read were all awesome, but my bed was hard to get to (upper bunk). Cool book selection. Greatttt location - right near everything! Sad that you had to pay for a lot of amenities here. For the price I felt like it shouldve been included, but they just opened so I get it. They killed it though with their idea of a library hostel. It works perfectly. Super well done to the staff!
