I decided to book this hostel for 3 night stay after reading review from tripadvisor. The hostel capsule able to provide sufficient privacy with individual roller blind and also individual tv with headphone. Please be prepared 25SG for the hostel deposit even I had made full payment online. Regarding the reception staff, overall is ok but I found one particular guy wear glasses which is more helpfull and friendly for assistance (One of the guess lost her wallet at the internet PC station and he tried to help by review back the CCTV in attempt to look for any clue who took the wallet). I had no waiting problem with the toilet and bathroom usage but I would suggest the hostel owner to install an exhaust fan at the bathroom as it may get pretty hot and stuffy after high usage. The wifi is provided free but you may also use their provided 2 PC for internet access. Another plus point is that the kitchen provide 24hrs breakfast and also free self service laundry. Overall, I would say great for solo traveler and i will stay at Woke Hostel again if I travel solo to Singapore again.

A very comfort and budget friendly hotel at the heart of Singapore. 5 Minutes walk to nearest MRT, bus stop right infront of hotel and located just next door with 7 Eleven. The sleep quality is good, and the best part is you can meet a lot of new friends in here. Wifi is good and breakfast menu is enough.

I go to Singapore rather often, and finding real cheap accommodations is sometimes a puzzler.
This time I have opted for Woke, curious to know more about the concept, but it's left me with mixed feelings.

What to bring?

- Towel
- Shower paraphernalia
- Earplugs

Starting with the good:

- Cheap. God is it cheap.
- Fantastic location. 5 minutes walk from both Boat Quay and Clarke Quay, eateries and convenience stores are everywhere.
- Very, very nice reception.
- I just love the lounge, homey and welcoming.
- Clean
- Breakfast included!

Then, the not so good:

- Rather cold dormitory
- Lots of little details that show that the place could do with more maintenance (showers)
- A towel will cost you 8$ and a plug adaptor will cost you 5$
- Pods are comfy but it's still a feels like dormitory, the pod walls are rather thin. Expect privacy, but not too much.

Finally, the bad:

Sensitive ears beware: lockers are inside the dorm (CLANG), and you can hear everything from the nearby pods, including snoring and playful couples. Fortunately, most tenants have manners.
Also, a club in the next building plays rather loud music, it's not too loud, but if basses annoy you, you'll find it irritating.

I've been in this hostel for 2 times, although the first time I found myself very well that's why i decided to come back but the second time I had some problems and some uncertainty about the professionalism of this hostel.
The rooms are big as known as dorm rooms that accommodate up to 20 capsules, the indoor temperature is 17 degrees outside even though there are 30, is so cold that the air conditioners lose water and drip continuously into two large bowls.
Unfortunately I have seen with my own eyes people from other beds too lazy or too drunk to reach their beds just to sleep all night long in clean beds only to be abandoned the next morning without even being changed pillow covers, that's so disgusting if I image that I could have to sleep in one of those.
I saw with my own eyes the cleaning lady to rest in one of the empty beds and rise again after a bit 'without changing the sheets or rearrange them.
Just finished my check-in and came in the room to see where I would have to sleep on my bed I found completely undone probably left dirty from the previous night even though they were already 4 pm.
For the rest I can not imagine how would be the general cleanliness!
I was really disappointed and do not think that the next time I come back to this hostel in Singapore, although I must admit that the staff is very friendly and the hotel is 200 meters from Clarke Quay MRT Station.
The good thing is that at least they kept our bags for a few hours after my check-out.

Decided to give capsules a whirl, am a bit past the dorm room thing these days, but only because of the complete lack of privacy, dont mind sharing bathrooms etc. Paid $20 SGD for the night through booking.com, which includes an all day breakfast of cornflakes toast and condiments, coffee and cordial, plus free wifi throughout the building and washing mashines with powder. There were 3 capsule dorms on my floor which each had about 18 capsules, and one bathroom with 3 showers, 3 basins and 3 toilets. Didn't feel crowded as everyone is on a different clock, and the showers are fantastic!

The capsules themselves had plenty of room, I could lie my backpack in there next to the mattress (it's a bit of a beast so it didn't fit in the locker provided) plus your own tv, a fold down little table top for laptop etc, a lamp, a mirror and a power point. Comfy mattress and pillow, nice clean sheet and poillowcase provided and a little blanket. There is a cane roll down blind at the end so you can seal yourself in, nice and private, really great to have your own little space that no-one can see into.

The building itself does not make a good first impression, nor does reception as it's in need of a bit of re-furb, but you get over that pretty quickly. Its based over several levels on South Bridge Road - which is a fantastic location to walk everywhere including Clarke and Boat Quay, Chinatown and to just hop on the MRT - and the floors with the capsule dorms can only be accessed with an electronic card, so pretty secure from non-guests.

Would definitely stay again :-)

first time ever staying in a capsule, great location located only a couple of hundred meters from Clake Quay MRT train station, about 100 meters to a street of local food and restaurants. Hostel is located outside a bus stop which is handy. Capsules are clean and comfortable complete with Free Wifi, power point, laptop table, flat screen tv, mirror, bed side lamp.... would stay here again

I chose Woke Home while researching about the different hostels in Singapore. It’s a neat little place and what drew me in was the fact that they are the first hostel in Singapore to adopt the capsule living concept (i.e. they’re Singapore’s first capsule hostel).

I originally settled with a 3D2N stay, but changed it to a 4D3N visit after being called upon to referee a soccer tournament for the weekend. The tournament was cancelled at the last minute and since there were no refunds for cancellation, I decided to run with it and did a bunch of stuff I’ll talk more about below.

It cost me $24 a night for a capsule. It includes breakfast as well.

Let’s start with the positives about this hostel. For one, the location of the hostel is absolutely prime. Located along South Bridge Road, this place connects to just about everywhere. There’s a bus stop just outside the hostel entrance, convenience stores located just beside it, a huge shopping mall not too far away, an MRT station slightly further up, two heritage-rich streets (Chinatown and Little India) nearby, and a plethora of bus stops that lead to endless destinations. If you’re serious about exploring Singapore, this is as good as a headquarter as it can get.

I myself prefer a warm, cosy place over a huge sprawling estate (altho I wouldn’t mind that tbh), so the size of the capsule is perfect. It’s not that big, but it’s not that small either (it would fit two teenagers comfortably).

For those who are security-conscious, I was surprised to see this place with a really decent security setup. The lockers are, as what we Singaporeans like to say, solid. People seem to be comfortable with leaving their expensive electronics around though, which is not a very common occurrence nor something you should do in Singapore. The 4th and 5th levels of the building, where the capsules are housed, can only be accessed by keycards that are given to occupants, which goes some way in providing a peace of mind.

The lounge area, which is located on the main floor (6th), is really homey and comfy. There’s a library, which impressed me with its wide offering of books in different languages (nice touch), a couch with a TV, some tables for people to do work and stuff, an Internet surfing area, and a pantry that offers free breakfast every morning and tea/coffee/hot water throughout the day.

The outdoor terrace was kinda homey actually. Could imagine daydreaming off here.

And the fact that there was a boxing dummy just puts an exclamation mark on the first impression barometer.

The staff were nice as well, offering me food whenever I’m in the lounge and generally made my stay enjoyable.

Now, the room-for-improvements.

The lights, or the lack thereof, is eyebrow-raising. It was essentially pitch-black (well you could still see stuff) when I took my showers at night. There were no lights over the shower cubicles, so the only source of light came from the one located in the sink area. The dormitories were poorly-lit as well, in the sense that while it was enough for you to see, it was still dark even when all four lights were turned on. You could get a idea of how dark the place was by the amount of noise in my pictures, even after noise reduction and other minor tweaks.

The dorms also have no windows, so like a casino, you wouldn’t know whether it’s nighttime or daytime without a clock. And the poor lighting, coupled with the relatively cold air-conditioning, gave the room a rather solemn mood.

Besides that, the capsule TV was broken due to a lighting strike, although other bloggers have been stating that the TVs were broken during their visits as well. That, was disappointing, but it was something I could make do without. The Wi-fi seemed to be working only in the lounge, exact sentiments once again shared by other reviewers.

The atmosphere wasn’t that great as travellers mostly kept to themselves, which I felt was a pity as I was looking forward to exchanging stories with them before the trip.

To be honest, other than the poor lighting which stuck out like a sore thumb, there’s nothing significantly bad with the hostel. The lounge area and all were wonderfully lit, which made the contrast between the levels as puzzling as it was worrying. The rays of sunshine and the warmth in the 8am-10am part of the day were great, and I could see a constellation in one of the most light-polluted area in Singapore at night. With a few minor tweaks here and there, this place would really make for an even more interesting experience. I had a joyous time here, but it was sad that the lighting had, ironically, dimmed my staycation spirits just a li’ll.

Singapore is definitely not a cheap place to stay but this hostel offers you affordable accommodation with a glimpse of privacy in a superb downtown location. The capsules give you much more privacy than a normal dorm would. You have everything you need, mattress, mirror, table, power plug, TV screen and privacy. The rooms don't have windows but a good working air conditioner. I never felt a lack of fresh air and I never had to wait for the bathrooms/toilets, though they could be cleaned more often. The reception is always occupied 24/7. The breakfast consist of bread, jam, cereals, milk and cookies. Filtered hot and cold water is available round the clock. WiFi was working fine also in the capsules. The location couldn't be better. MRT Ruffles Place for direct airport connection. MRT Clarque Quay is a little bit closer though. Directly in front of the hostel is an 7eleven and a bus stop. Would definitely stay again here!

This is a pretty good hostel for a budget traveler. Though I'd say the place wasn't perfect and needed a bit of improvement (my lamp switch was broken and the blinds were a bit hard to maneuver) but the issues were tolerable for the price and the overall experience was tremendous.
It's located near the Clarke Quay MRT Station (5-8mins), Chinatown MRT Station (8-10mins) and Raffles Place (site says 10mins, I didn't try this way) so the location is pretty good. It's also really close to the Chinatown night market, food street and the Hong Lim and Maxwell Hawker Centers.
Though the building's facade is unsightly (there were bins of trash right outside the door), the dorm rooms and the capsule itself were clean, so were the bathroom stalls and the common area. I fit quite snugly in my capsule, with room to spare for my small luggage and backpack. A room has 20 capsules and there were 3 rooms on my floor -- sharing 3 shower stalls, so at full capacity, it might be a nightmare. But if you can tolerate the wait and if you're just looking for a place to stay while you're exploring Singapore the whole day, this place is perfect.

The free breakfast is basically milk, bread, marmalade and cereal that they have on offer in the common refrigerator in the public area.
FYI on locker space, approx measurement is around 2ft tall, 6in width and 1.5ft deep.

All in all pretty horrendous experience. Stayed 3 nights and max sleep I've had is 2 hours. Tried not to let it ruin short time here but sight seeing is not much fun when you are exhausted. Dorms are big and overcrowded, very noisy. Nothing is mentioned at check in about keeping the noise down at certain times like at other capsule hotels I have stayed at. Dorms are used as common room also - probably because there is tv in there. The lights were on in dorm 24 hours a day. People packing at 3am. Talking loudly at 6am. On phone at midnight etc. Majority of guests were Asian. There was a family staying in one capsule with a 5 year old. Think maybe there was some homeless staying here as lots of plastic bags rustling all throughout the night... Not supposed to eat in the dormitories but people were. Not really for backpackers. Light broken in capsule plus fan was too noisy to use. Also cleaner is very rude. I saw her wake up an American girl who was staying one night at 9am even though she hasn't checked in until very late because she wanted to clean the room. I would pay the little bit extra to stay somewhere else next time. Whole place is tired and worn. Photos are from when it first opened. Only saving grace was the free toast cereal, washing/drying and wifi. Close to mrt which is good and location excellent. 7 eleven next door. Oh, and also some bar noise at night. Unless you can sleep through an atom bomb if probably give this one a miss
