It wasn’t the worst place that I’ve stayed at but it was little things like how nothing was really explained to you when you arrived, there was duct tape holding my capsule together and they said it was Australian law that the capsules wouldn’t lock but I’ve stayed at other places and they did lock.

Cozy pod in great area
I enjoy small cozy spaces so this place was great for me, always felt safe and comfortable sometimes you could hear other people rolling over but this didn't bother me at all every one was really quiet no phone calls or music or anything which I really appreciated. Was in a great area could walk to all events I had, and a great price!

One of the best hostels I’ve stayed at!

When I stayed in this hotel I forgot my necklace at the hotel and didn't realise until I was on the flight back home. The staff was very quick in responding and helpful when I called and told them about the issue. They were able to find the necklace for me. I also recommend this hotel if you are staying in Sydney for a short period of time or just need a place to rest your head. I was in Sydney for 2 nights and was out all day but I found the capsule to be quite cosy if you are someone who doesn't get claustrophobic. I would recommend using an earplug or listen to music with your ear/headphone on if you are a light sleeper as the sound does travel up from the street. Overall I found the atmosphere at the hotel to be quite pleasing with the boutique-styled furnishing.

Such a good find
Although it says it’s a hostel, it felt more like a hotel! It was clean and comfortable. The staff were welcoming and answered my questions well. Would highly recommend.

Location is great, very convenient to everywhere by walking distance or by train. Room, kitchen and toilet/bathroom are always clean. WiFi is unstable, sometimes unable to connect. Night time is quite noisy, can hear the music and people singing as there is Lounge upstairs.
