Comfy n cozy!
Its a good experience with it. Service are good. The room also are good but 1 thing that bother me is the bathroom door. It doesnt hv any handle to open it or its just the way it was. Overall was good experience.

Great but not a backpacker hostel.
Great hostel for quick stays. It’s the best pod/capsule hostel I’ve been in as far as facilities go - the pods are nice, clean, and comfortable - they’ve got fans, universal plugs, good Wi-Fi, solid privacy, and even a mirror. The whole building is cool and well maintained, and the bathrooms are great. Also, the graphic design is on point. But: no community, not gonna meet people. It’s not a social histel

Will be back.
Overall, I love it. Just that one pair of the 2 pairs of slippers had white stains on it.

Not ship shape or bristol fashion.
This is not the best hotel within the chain. The staff are not the issue here. They are friendly and helpful and it is a shame that the hotel group let them down. The dorms have a terrible smell due in part to bathroom leeking on the first floor. Water damage can be seen around the property to this affect. This problem and maybe a general drainage issue has led to an over abundance of drain mites and at times it seems an endless stream pass you by. There is also no real cleaning taking place. The bathrooms are cleaned once a day so by mid afternoon to early evening they are a real mess. Remember this is a 56 pod hotel. The beds are changed but the pod areas are not cleaned thoroughly so months of dust and grime surrounds you. The carpets during my stay were not hoovered or sweep once adding to smell and underlying grime. So don't believe the hype because in my view this property within this chain of hotels is not fit for purpose.
