My nights in capsule, tokyo

So what is sleeping in a Capsule hotel like?

It’s much a like to sleeping in a giant dorm room but with a lot more privacy and amenities. Each bed comes with it’s own set of power sockets, radio & alarm, and television, as well as a set of curtains you can draw or a blind which you can pull down for privacy.My only real qualm with the beds is that the mattresses are very thin and so my sleep wasn’t as comfortable as I was hoping.

The hostel workers speak varying degrees of English – the first worker I spoke with was near enough to fluent whilst some of the other workers just used gestures to communicate with me. Due to this lapse in language it is important to be mindful of customs which the Japanese such as taking your shoes off when entering the hotel.

There is beer and other drinks available for purchase at the hostel, lockers in the reception, and fast WiFi throughout the hotel – perfect!

After spending a lot of time sleeping in hotels in India, capsule hostels which Japan are famous for but with all of the features included inside the capsule, the convenience, and space being at a premium in big cities like Tokyo, it is understandable why they are such a popular option with both locals and foreigners wanting to try something new.

So, what do you think?
Would you like to stay in a Capsule Hotel?
