Stayed at Khaosan Ninja Tokyo for 5 nights in May 2014 in their capsule bed. What I liked most about the capsule bed is it offers lots of privacy. It's good that they provide a key for the capsule so that we can lock our stuff inside when we go out. The free wifi was really great - signal was strong. Staff spoke a decent, comprehensible level of English so communication was not a problem. I also love the location - within walking distance to Asakusa and Ryogoku. Near the subway station - about 25 min train ride to Shinjuku and Shibuya. Quite a number of eateries and convenience stores nearby too. No curfew either.
However the flooring is extremely hollow - could always hear people walking around the room / going to the toilet at night. This could be a problem for light sleepers but not for me! The capsule also tends to get really stuffy if it's entirely closed so I'll open a portion of the door when I'm sleeping (just make sure you lock up all valuables to play safe!). I had an issue with the showers though. They were clean but always had a problem adjusting the right water temperature as the water either gets slightly too hot or cold.
Nevertheless, still a pleasant stay for the price! Will definitely be my choice stay again if and when I return to Tokyo.
