Amenities not provided as per advertised.
The lift was out of service on the last night until next morning of check-out, no staff was available to assist with luggage from the fifth floor down the stairs. Toilet seat was broken, only one of the two showers was available to use for all guests on 5th floor.

I liked the price of the accommodation, it was easy and convenient. Main issue was the noise from other guests and the train noise.

4/10 Fair

This is inside a heritage building and not a good way. I booked one night here to compare with Capsule Q. I found the two female employees here to be friendlier than the one guy at Capsule Q. However, Capsule Q is cleaner and the capsules are fully functional. The locker here was easy to open manually meaning that I could pull the door and it would open so not secure. The capsule door lock has been disabled and most of the dashboard functions are also dissabled. Rendering it a casket with a light. Not very futuristic. The hallway smells like cigarette.

Would not recommend
Would not stay here. Really hot in the pods - bad air. There is a fan type system, but it’s not that cold, you can not control it yourself and it is really noisy. Everything feels dirty. Worn down and old. No light or soap in the bathroom - had to bring my phone flashlight. Thin mattresses. Also, the length was not an issue for me as I’m not tall, but research the length of the pod if you’re a male.

Instructions on how to find hotel were not clear, spent hours back and forth trying to find and rushing to meet before 9pm although self check in was available. Please make it more clear after hours check in is available. Hand dryer broken, sink broken, the capsules were incredibly noisy. Person above me going in and out whole night shaking the entire capsule, bunk beds would have been quieter. I thought it would save me money and time staying here, ended up costing a fortune in parking, hours wasted unfortunately. Could have been really great at least the pillows were comfortable. No staff had provided me wifi, not satisfied
