Cheap accomodation in TOkyo

by Mooise about Khaosan hostel and Asakusa Capsule hotel Riverside

If you want to stay in Tokyo for relatively cheap you should try Asakusa. This area is really nice base and is easily accesible by subway.
You couldstay in the friendly Khaosan hostel for around 3000yen a night. This is a nice place to meet travellers and the staff are friendly and speak english. Its located right beside the river and the roof has a great view of the asahi beer headquarters( the golden turd!!!). Alternatively if you want to experience a capsule hotel you could try Asakusa Capsule hotel Riverside,located just down the street from Khaosan. Its the only capsule ive ever stayed in but i dont think its exactly 2state of the art". However its cheap(3000yen) and one of the few that allow women.Very comfortable and located right beside exit 4 of Asakusa station. The capsule hotel has seperate sento( hot tub type bath) for male and female which i relaly enjoyed. Capsule hotel provides you with towels,bathrobes and toothbrush. Both places have nice rooftops with good views down river.
right beside "senso ji". Area is next to Ueno,which is well worth a visit for the park and markets.
Also if you need towels or other REALLY cheap things theres a Hyaku en (100yen) shop right beside the entrance to senso ji.
Nightlife is non existant in this area but there are some decent restaurants.

Sleep like the torpedos doo

by beckbre about Capsule Hotel

My Japanese friend took me with him to a capsule hotel in Shibuya. A capsule hotel is an accomodation in which you basically rent a 1mx1mx2m plastic tube in which to spend the night.

Upon entering, one purchases a ticket from a vending machine, removes ones shoes and gives the ticket and shoes to the men behind a counter (I know, the vending machine is quite redundant). One is give a robe and a key for a locker. This is a japanese style accomodation, so one wears only a robe once inside.

There is a communal bath and toilet facility plus a small lounge. There are vending machines with all the basics (snacks, drinks, cigarettes, soap, toothbrushes, undershirts). When you are tired, climb into your torpedo tube with built-in clock radio / tv. Since capsule hotels are geared towards mostly japanese business men, some patrons are uncomfortable with gaijin. I felt like I had license since I accompanied a friend, but if I were alone my stay may have been more difficult unless I had more experience with japanese language and culture.

If you are adventurous and gutsy - go ahead and try it, I had fun!

Capsule Hotels

by R.Dettmann about This one is in Kochi town

You get a locker and a box to sleep in. Very interesting. :)

Those Capsule hotels are very cheap, about the price of a youth hostel, but here you got your own little room. I actually had nice dreams :)

I paid like 20Euro for the night. You have TV and radio inside your box too!
This capsule hotel also had a sauna!

TOKYO capsule hotel

by mandrakesunnyflower about Capsule inn AKIHABARA

-I think it is a one star hotel.
It has 169 rooms. medium sized hotel/
guest service is limited only like luggage storage service./
Facilities are also limited like front office, housekeeping only./
Bathroom & Amenities are not so convenience. The hotel has public bathroom. It is not a en-suite bath or shower room./
The hotel does not have food service./
Staffs are also limited./
It is not a comfortable hotel. The size is so small. I can’t move freely inside a capsule. But the hotel is very good for a budget traveler. Japan’s expense is so high. So it is a good idea for them. A Capsule hotel is a unique style of accommodation in Japan, inspired by the pursuit of efficiency of space and functional comfort, originating from the adaptive, creative spirit of the Japanese mind.

Everybody that travels to Japan should experience this unique accommodation, at least once! One of the most unique accommodations in the world!

-1 Fixed Rates. No surprises!
One rate for all rooms! Rates are fixed at 4,000 Yen per night. Occasionally we offer special rates.
-2 Separate floors for men and women.
A sense of security for women traveling alone, plus, inexpensive accommodations for a group of women traveling together in Tokyo.
-3 The only capsule hotel in Akihabara

-4 Wireless Internet connection available.

Unique Cabin Beds

by Phalaenopsis03 about Khaosan Tokyo Ninja Hostel

While in Tokyo, I wanted to get a taste of a capsule hotel, but as a foreign female, I had difficulty securing reservations while still in the States. Capsule hotels are generally for "salarymen" - businessmen who've stayed too late at work or with the boss and missed their last train home. So the Japanese created these efficient "capsules" for the guy who just needs a place to sleep. Some capsules contain TV monitors, alarms, and even porn mags. But there are also some capsule hotels that cater to women or have female only floors, but I had difficulty booking one of those on the web. So instead, I made reservations at Khaosan Ninja Tokyo Hostel. The cost for staying in one of these bed boxes was 3100 yen/night or $32/nightly.

Directions: From Tokyo station take the JR Sobu Rapid Line to Bakurocho station and exit at C4 (NOT exit 4). Go straight and take the first right. Keep walking until you see it ahead of you on the left-hand side of the street. The neat thing about this hostel are their cabin beds. You basically sleep in a wooden box measuring approximately 7'x3'x4'. While it may sound/look suffocating and even morbid, it was actually a very comfortable experience and provided me with sufficient privacy from the 15 college-aged kids I was dorming with. Ear plugs definitely helped though. The cabin bed dorm room also had a separate locker room (to fit backpacks), as well as a separate coed "bathroom" containing two toilet rooms, two shower rooms, and four sinks.

Oh yeah, please also keep in mind that there are no elevators in this hostel, so you'll have to lug all your luggage. I guess when I checked in I looked exhausted or something that the front desk person felt sorry for me and carried my little rolly up four floors to my "room".

Osaka Capsule Hotel

by DarthMal

Hello,

My last two nights in Japan will be spent in Osaka and I'm looking to experience a capsule hotel.

Does anyone know of one you can book in advance? I know they were designed for drunk businessmen who couldn't get home at night, and therefore didn't require booking, but I would like to have my hotels all booked in advance.

If they are not bookable, what's the general view on just turning up on the day and hoping for a room??

Thanks,

Darth Mal

Re: Osaka Capsule Hotel

by unaS

Capsule hotels are designed for the person that 'just shows up' because he missed the last train or whatever.

Together with that, just did a search on www.japan-guide.com for capsule hotels in Osaka and came up with zilch.

Capsule Hotel in Shinjuku

by maverick-mw

Hey there VT'ers. Or should I say Koncihiwa?

I will be visiting Japan in June, and the first thing I want to do is climb Mt Fuji. I know of places to stay, and how to get there from Shinjuku bus station, but I need a place to stay in Tokyo when I arrive (at Narita).

Places closest to Shinjuku station would be the best. I have found this:

http://www.hgpshinjuku.jp/

Capsule Hotel, but the website is in some strange foreign language? Ha ha.

Anyway, I was hoping of anyone out there who's not quite so linguistically challenged as myself can translate this and give me the general information of prices per night and other important things.

Thanks very much!

Martin

Inexpensive accommodation near Tsukiji fish market

by ellyse

Here're my requirements:
- no curfew, or a late curfew (say, around midnight)
- doesn't need pre-booking via credit card (I don't have one and frequently fly last-minute)
- not TOO difficult to find from a metro stop (I cannot read any Japanese other than romaji and kanji)
- perhaps a capsule hotel that accepts females?
- near (ie walking distance) from Tsukiji fish market
Thanks very much in advance for all and any responses!

Re: Inexpensive accommodation near Tsukiji fish market

by SfumatoPants

There are a few hotels within a close walk to Tsukiji. It is, however, not an inexpensive area being Ginza. I have stayed here often:

http://www.hvf.jp/eng/shiodome.php

...and can recommend it. It is within walking distance of Tsukiji, maybe 15 minutes at a casual pace. I'm not sure if it fits your budget.

Re: Inexpensive accommodation near Tsukiji fish market

by ellyse

Oops, I realise I should've given a more specific price range for "inexpensive". I'm hoping to find something around 2000-5000 JPY (hence the suggestion of capsule hotels), and definitely no more than 6000 JPY. I would be travelling alone, so no one to share room costs with. I don't mind dorms, but the hostels that I've read of in Tokyo all have a rather early curfew. :(
Thanks for the suggestion, but 12000 JPY is a bit out of my student budget. :(

Re: Inexpensive accommodation near Tsukiji fish market

by SfumatoPants

Although not near Tsukiji, there is this place:

...at Asakusa, which means a train ride to get to Tsukiji.

Re: Inexpensive accommodation near Tsukiji fish market

by ellyse

That does look good. :) Do you happen to know if it has a curfew?
