“Great”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

It was the best hotel that i've ever stayed when i'm in Singapore, the location, the cleanliness and the breakfast love it so much specially for the dimsum. The facilities such as laundry, an iron, a hair dryer. The service such as they change the towel everyday, and the receiptionist was so nice and helpfull. Will be back stay there for the next trip.

Modern hotel. Quiet. Modern and clean bathrooms and showers. Reasonable breakfast. Good location next to the Arab quarter with lots of restaurants and bars around. About a 10 minutes walk from the MRT train station Bugis away on the green east west train line which connects to Changi airport. Would stay in this hotel again.

Check-in was such a breeze ; was brought to my bunk within 5 mins of reaching the hotel (a personal record!). I was really impressed with the cleanliness of the washrooms and the common use areas. The location is great as it is a stone's throw away from various eateries and pubs. Plus it's walking distance to Bugis MRT and city hall. The staff are very nice and friendly too. Will definitely return for my text trip to Singapore :)

I stayed for 4 nights at the hotels. First impression was really good, the hostel rooms are very comfortable. I love the blinds to add some privacy when i stay. The bathroom was really clean and not wet. It's a quite and nice place to stay. I will definitely choose the pod again to stay in Singapore

I spend one night at this hotel. First, i got no idea how to enter the door. I found the direction at right wall to press button 0, button 3 and button ring. Finally the door open for me. Take elevator to 3rd floor. And i found the receptionist.
The check in process was quick, i got the room that i order (side entry female only and far from door). I found the bathroom was very nice!

The single pod was clean, and they provide 1 mineral bottle (ask the reception desk) for free. The pod has flip table (you can writing or laptoping in convenience way) and universal adaptor. And they have queen pod with double bed.

My room are silent and i can sleep well. Breakfast buffet was so delicious, they also serve dim sum (hakau and siew may). I love the Nespresso Coffee Machine, i asked to the staff how can i use the machine. The staff told me to choose one coffee powder and put in into the machine.

Next visit i will go here again because great breakfast should start my holiday :)

Room Tip: choose side entry pod and ask to get room near from door.

Very accommodating team, especially the tall, lean guy, went above and beyond, highly commendable. Promote him!!! Even helped with heavy luggage when elevator was down (for the whole week in June 2014 that I was there, very taxing on my arthritis). Another shorter, burly guy was also lifting luggage but mostly, it was THE TALL GUY. Hostel modern, sizable, clean, well-equipped and well-maintained. Great air-conditioning, I love it that they don't let the guests mess with the air-conditioning remote. The hostel set the temperature. Considering that I've traveled to over 50 countries since 1978, it's one of the best. Its toilets and bathrooms are roomy, clean and for once, with enough space, ledges and hooks for your clothes and stuff. Bedroom spacious, with a wide aisle for the luggages. Comfortable bed, pillow, duvet. Bed was too narrow and uber cramp though, less than 3ft wide, like I'm crawling into my coffin every night and at over 55y.o., it was a creepy thought. Fluffy, WHITE (not ecru, beige, nor off-white, not gray nor colored (changed daily) and not tattered like the one at Ibis Heathrow, where I stayed the month before. The POD team makes up for hostel's inconvenient location and its coffin bunk. Great cuppa Nespresso coffee every morn and its free. Downside, the dark piece of mat outside the shower stall is unsightly, unsanitary and criminal.

Room Tip: For narrow bunks, get one with a side entry, gives you more room

We spent 2 nights at this hotel.
First of all, I would like to mention that we strongly thank the hotel for not invoicing the 3rd night we had booked as our plane was delayed by one day. They said we a sincere smile that it was normal but it is not always so straight forward!
The hotel is very unique and modern. It is pretty well located near the subway and near Marina Bay, in a lively area of Singapore that I did not know before.
As Singapore is so expensive, it is a great compromise. I found the shared bathroom pretty clean and we had new clean towels every day.
However we have to mention that guests are not very respectful of each other and it is very difficult to sleep before 1:00am as everybody is clapping the doors and talking loudly, and after 5:30am....
