B&S Eco Cube Shinsaibashi

B&S Eco Cube Shinsaibashi is a capsule hotel in Osaka, Japan. Located at a smaller road in the middle of the city, few meters away from Dotonbori, and Namba MRT Station. It's a no-fuss, organized, functional hotel. Upon entry, register to check-in, you'll then get a key for your shoe locker. Wear socks or barefoot, it's all clean. 
Entry to the capsule hotel was at the lower level of the building. 
 Reception staff were very friendly. They confirmed my reservation and asked me to pick which noodle I like. It was complimentary for guests. I randomly pointed to the one in the middle and they handed me this huge cup of spicy noodle!
 House Rules and Regulations
Shoe lockers 
Rental lockers at common room. 
  The common room had several chairs facing the wall, and one round table in the middle. All guests can stay here to eat or chill.
 At this floor, there's TV, a vending machine, microwave, thermos (for hot water), lockers for rent (for small/big luggages), and toilet for male and female.
 Common Room at the Female Level before entry to the capsule beds. The wall mirror served as vanity for guests. There were chairs, hair dryers, toiletries for sale.
 Female Capsule Room Rules
 Comfort Room lavatories
Two toilet stalls. You have to wear the designated slippers here only. Everyone shares them, so preferably wear socks at all times.
Another door leads to the beds, personal lockers, and 4 shower rooms.
 Inside the lockers were complimentary toiletries, towel, bathrobe.
 Shower rooms
 Lotion, facial wash for sale.
 Capsule beds
 I noticed they've placed most guests next to each other. So half the room was empty, and we can hear each other coughing, or moving.
 Capsule - Female Only Room: Php1036 without Breakfast
 Television, 1 USB port, light control, pillows, comforter, small face mirror (on the wall), pull-down for privacy.
Pull-down curtain.

  • Really cool experience. I had to plan ahead the whole time because I was travelling alone, and focus on not forgetting anything, nor unnecessarily bring items I don't need.
  • Inside the cubby was roomy enough. There was WiFi, so I never really used the TV. 
  • I only met one fellow guest at the lavatory room, and we just nodded upon seeing each other. Everyone was polite and quiet. I liked it.
  • There was a Family Mart nearby. The hotel was at a central tourist location, so there were a lot of restaurants outside the hotel with varying price ranges. 
  • And yes, you have to check-out by 10AM then check-in again by 5PM if you're staying several days.
