Clean, on expensive side, no hostel spirit.
It is pretty nice, clean and well organized. Little bit expensive for hostel type. Kitchen is not welcoming. No hostel spirit. No napkins, paper towels. Planned pretty acward way. Doesn’t welcome to stay, say hello, socialize. It feels like they are not good enaugh to be called hotel and at the same time don’t want to be called hostel.

If you are on a tight budget, the Capsule Hotel is a great option. It is a hostel, but unlike most hostels, the bed is in a completely enclosed capsule. The two best things about the Capsule Hotel were the staff members and the hotel's location. The staff was extremely friendly and solved the few problems I had while there. The hotel in the Central Business District and is near many, many restaurants and shops. If you need to save money when visiting Sydney, I recommend the Capsule Hotel.

Good 6.0
Basic needs met but could use some updates
While I liked the idea of the capsule, and I felt safe in it and I felt that my property was secure, it was not at all sound proof and I could hear my neighbors moving around in their capsules and in the common room. The mattress pad could have been a little more supportive. My storage locker was the upper locker, and I couldn't hang anything up because I couldn't reach and there was no step stool. While the bathrooms were clean (and they clean them several times a day), they really could use some updating. Grumblings aside, the staff was pleasant and helpful, I liked the keycard entry to the pods and lockers, and the hotel is situated conveniently to public transport, restaurants, and shopping. I was able to walk most places I needed to go. As I don't spend a lot of time in my hotel when I travel, all I ask is somewhere safe to sleep and store my things. I just wish it had been more comfortable.

Great place, I had a very quiet stay without any issues. The Capsules are every unique and it was a fun experience. The overall place was clean, clean bathrooms, and fantastic staff. I think it was well-priced but there are definitely cheaper and more "normal" hostels in the area.
