  • 6.0.Good

    Have stayed in many hostels in different cities for different prices but the bathrooms and showers here weren't great -- below expectations. Very mildewy and not too pleasant to shower in. Also had an issue because I couldn't use the locker designated for my pod. The guests below me had started using it before I got there so for the entire duration of my stay I didn't have access to it despite asking reception numerous times about it and ultimately just had to leave my bags with valuables behind the desk at reception when I left for the day and retrieved them when I came back. Staff was very kind and helpful and everything else was nice though. Okay value for your money

    For the price in Singapore, this place is great. I got a tiny capsule room to myself but it was exactly what I needed during my time there. I wish I couldve stayed here longer. The bed was super comfortable and everything was clean and perfect. Front desk staff was super helpful and assisted me with everything I needed (garden by the bay tickets, calling a taxi late at night, transportation)

  • 4.0.Fair

    Third of fourth time staying. Was disappointed because I was sold a room that wasn't available. Instead upon check in at about 2am, I was led to a room, which I realized was not the one booked. When I asked the front desk, I was informed I had been "upgraded". In fact, the provided room was not an upgrade and the same cost as the others. It was quickly revealed that they had oversold the room which I had booked. They told me a group came, which ultimately isn't the customers problem. The following day, I spoke with front desk again, but was told nothing was available and that they were at capacity. I spoke with the manager who also seemed to have no solution. Upon a bit of prodding, they found a single room that was available as someone didn't show. I don't feel like they ultimately cared about the inconvenience and apology was pretty thin. I would have liked to have seen the first night refunded at least as it was not what I booked. Its a shame, because in the past, I had good experiences, but this time was a big disappointment. Additionally because they were at capacity, it meant breakfast wasn't really accessible. When I went down the spaces were completely packed. So ultimately, I went out all 3 days for breakfast.

    Staff was very helpful in recommending activities. Also in ordering a taxi for early trip to the airport. I felt really bad for the others in my area, because U had a terrible cough, so I’m sure I kept them up all night. My apologies.

    For a person on a budget this place is great but you have to remember that you are staying in dorm room setting. Not everyone is conderisate of others so you have deal with that. I thought I could save a little money staying here but in my opinion this place was not for me. I ended up staying at another hotel for the remainder of my trip. Overall the Pod at Beach Rd was ok with adequate facilities.

    Why waste money on expensive hotels

    This is a good place to stay. Centrally located, MTR nearby, It is not a 5 star hotel but best in its class. You have everything you basically need, Comfy bed, hot shower, good coffee, nice breakfast, air con, maps, services. All for a good price. Our pod was ready by 10am so could checkin early. We have stayed here before pre and post cruising and will again in the future.You have use of microwave, fridge, hot/cold water on tap so can eat your own food

    Short stay is okay!

    Its not my first time staying here. Overall, it was okay for a short stay. Took the single suite lower bunk, previously stayed on the single mixed and singe suite but in upper bunk, seems too high for me and ended up requesting for a lower bunk instead. It was soooo small and cramp compared to the upper bunk (at least I have walking space). The lower bunk is a front entry, meaning you can really feel the confined space when sleeping. There's still space for you to sit up though. Wall is thin, depending on whether you're a light sleeper and your considerate neighbour. What really can improve is the door. It makes a really loud sound whenever anyone is entering/exiting and there's 2 of them (the main and your suite). Cleanliness is good, at least the washroom are well upkept. They do provide basic breakfast which I hope can be an option since there's much more choices in surrounding area. The location is good to explore SG esp in Haji Ln and beyond. Nightlife, food, drinks are plentiful depending on your budget.
