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.

Good capsule hotel, well priced for Singapore.
We stayed in one of the suite rooms, which meant we had our own entrance and a bit more space than the pods, but we were still within a room (our bed was under one of the pods in the main room). The hotel was clean and tidy. Even the bathrooms were generally much cleaner than I’ve come across in other similar places (only other people occasionally left them messy). Breakfast was included and was sufficient yet simple. Check-in was a bit long and complicated - first you had to do passports etc at the desk, then go and do self-check in at a computer. It would be much easier if it could all be done in one. But, staff were very helpful and overall we found the place to be just what we needed and a reasonable price for Singapore. It was well located for restaurants and public transport.

Would Stay there again!
I booked the Pod hotel for a single night too experience staying in one. I would gladly stay at this property again without hesitation. I do like the solo rooms, they are compact...and the breakfast has limited choices but has something for everyone.

Capsule/pod hotel
First time staying in a capsule hotel. The size of the capsule/pod of your sleeping area is surprisingly good enough. You won’t feel claustrophobic or tight for Asian size with ample room to sit up and move around comfortably. Cleanliness is well maintained in the premises, room, common area and toilet. Comes with a buffet for breakfast which is a plus point. Disturbance or privacy will be an issue to consider for this hotel concept. Rooms are shared with 6 pax and you hear noises from others when they come back late, goes to the washroom, moving or getting stuff in and out from the drawers etc. Since there’s no door and just a privacy curtain, this will be a concern for light sleepers. There’s no slippers beyond the common room to the rooms or washrooms. Hygiene on walking barefoot and stepping on the shower mat might put you off. Overall it was still bearable for me in short term for a cheap lodging. Else, for privacy and more comfort state, I’ll spend more for a full fledge hotel.

Excellent location, really clean, helpful and friendly staff*. Free breakfast and laundry facilities as an added bonus. * I wasn’t shown around or to my room when I arrived which I did see subsequent guests benefit from. This is the only reason I didn’t give the staff an excelkent

Good hostel, Budget for Singapore
This hostel is in a great location, clean with nice facilities. Shared room can effect nights sleep, but ear plugs are provided. It's weak point would definitely be the breakfast. Lots of great food with Haji Lane and Zam Zams in close proximity.
