Interesting Experience
Didn't know what to expect but thought I would give it a try as I was only overnighting in Singapore for my flight home. Location was great right outside the Chinatown. Easy access to the Market and all the available food stalls. Pod was comfortable and clean, service was very good, clean and friendly

I wanted accommodation in that area for ease of going to the F1 race. Having stayed at various locations, over the past 12 years, I can say this was the best! Funky, comfortable pods and amazing staff! I was a little apprehensive about sleeping in such a confined space however the staff were extremely reassuring and explained all pod functions. I will stay here again, for sure! The only downside was there were 3 different coffee sachets available and ALL were 3 in one mixed! Addressed this with staff, as did other guests, and staff made a note to inform management!

Resting in Space POD
I booked my stay for one night. just to experience this growing set-up of Space POD. It was quite a unique experience & very much liked it. Preferably for people on the road or out during the day time, and just come over, freshen up and go to sleep. Very cozy and comfortable to sleep. Only one suggestion would be to have addl bathroom in the men's section considering the number of PODS & its occupancy. Based right in China Town, has numerous options of dining, leisure & MTR just few blocks. A great stay and recommend the experience at least for a night. .....worth the price paid.

Sci-Fi Theme well done.
The check in was super smooth and overall was it totally as expected. I enjoyed my stay and Sci-Fi theme was well done. The area is very busy but no noise made it up to the hotel as it well insulated. I would definitely recommend for travelers that want to try out a capsule hotel. They even provided a small breakfast for free in the morning.

Weird that the lights don't turn off in the pod so you can either sleep with lights and air con on or, if you want the lights off, no air con. Liked the idea of it but not impressed with the reality.

A novelity experience
This was my first experience with the pod hotels and it was just ok. Good value for the experience but I would just rather stay in hotel. The bed was only a 2 inch pad and I didn't sleep well.

Space Pod Disaster
The pod itself was ok, really thin mattress. But the rest of the space left a lot to be desired. The lift was broken the whole time I stayed, and when I got there there was no sign except to enter the hotel through the lift, and I called and called the phone number for help but no answer. Finally I heaved my bag up three flights of stairs and found my key taped to the door. Then there was the bathroom with no hot water for showers, and no space to get dressed or ready. Very small, and extremely hot and humid as there is no A/C in the bathroom. Also there is no place to apply makeup other than the small sink area with no counter space. The breakfast included is cereal, not really what I would call a hotel breakfast, very basic. Also, there were not enough cups and bowls for the number of guests, so often I couldn't even get a cup of tea in the morning as there was nothing to drink it out of. The worst was I locked my key in the locker, and I called repeatedly the phone numbers, and again nobody answered anywhere. I left message after message. Apparently someone came down while I was in my pod with the door open but they did not come in the room where my pod was (even though I left the number on the message) so I had to call repeatedly to again try and get help to get my keycard out of the locker so I could leave the hotel. Yeah, pretty much was a total disaster of poor, or rather completely lacking, service. I was excited about the space pod novelty, but not worth it.

Cool experience
The pod itself was very cool! The service was also good. The only thing is there wasn’t enough food for breakfast. However, we found a bread that was mouldy,

Good stay, handy for layovers
Overall good stay - clean and tidy, staff is helpful and it is all organised quite well. Very cool concept of having a space capsule, I'd never tried it before but absolutely loved the experience. Some very handy usb charge ports in there and buttons to regulate lights and airflow. The only negative was that my locker wasnt locking properly but in the end I didnt use it anyway.

Awesome budget pod in accessible location
Loved my pod! Great budget option in a cool neighborhood. I slept very comfortably. I wish there was a more secure place to store luggage (provided lockers could only fit a backpack, so larger luggage just had to lay out in a communal room) and that the bathrooms were in better condition, they were hot and filthy, to the point that I waited to use the restroom at a restaurant to avoid having to use the one onsite.
