Everything you need
This was my first time in a capsule hotel, but based off previous stays in other hostels in various countries I had low standards. Turn table blew my mind and set a standard for all future hostels and hotels in my mind. The accommodations are very basic- but excellent. Comfy simple mattress, basic but good slippers and towel, excellent bathrooms and amazing water pressure, a delicious breakfast buffet of Japanese foods (with free espresso! I LOVED that!), and a nice restaurant and bar. Plus, it’s is located conveniently near shibuya near the station as well as many other restaurants, a supermarket, and some clubs if you’re into that. I really enjoyed my stay and would certainly book with them again if I’m ever in that area of Japan again. Thank you Turn Table!!!

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
Some of the staff were excellent (Shino and the Spanish guy). The main issue I have with this place is that the breakfast doesn’t cater for vegetarians or vegans. They have plenty of vegetable items for breakfast but every single one has dashi in it (fish broth) even the boiled eggs have dashi. I mentioned it to the hostel in a message through Expedia in September and 3/4 times during my stay in December but they didn’t do anything about it During my 5 night stay - most places Are flexible and will sort this out but it was disappointing that they couldn’t and I was forced to find breakfast elsewhere. Wifi was also very patchy in the dorm rooms and there is no common area to hang out / socialise. On a positive note, the mattresses are extremely comfortable and probably the best mattresses I had during my 2 and a half week trip. Location wise, it’s 15 mins walk to Shibuya station.

Sleek and well-designed hostel. While the rooms themselves are small and somewhat claustrophobic (but that's Japan), the actual beds are great - very private (with a shade) and fairly roomy, comes with storage space along with hangers, as well some multiple outlets and a light. Showers and toilets are well-thought out as well, but seems to lack a true common area. Breakfast is good but repetitive. Location is great as it's a 10 minute walk to the heart of Shibuya (15 to the station) for all the things you can do and all the food you can eat, but there is plenty to eat just one street away from the hostel as well. Would stay again in a heartbeat.
