Great Facility for what it is. Pod was clean, staff wre friendly
Bradley, au1 night business trip
Good 6.0
The beds are comfy and the pods are homely. If you're good at falling asleep it's a nice spot. On the other hand if you're bad at falling asleep the external noises I.e the lockers opening and closing and the doors opening and closing can be a bit annoying. The fact the light is kept on outside the pod all night isn't ideal either. If you're here for a night or 2 it's a perfectly reasonable place to stay. Any longer I think the lack of cooking facilities and a touch of tiredness may start to impact on the stay.

Would recommend - Comfortable and great location
Had a fantastic stay. The Pod Inn was clean, comfortable, affordable and within walking distance from shops and attractions. The pods were well ventilated, spacious, secure and well equip with all the necessities (USB power plugs, clock, adjustable lighting, mini table, bedding). Bathroom and kitchen were clean and staff were helpful. The dorm was quite. Would definitely recommend. A towel was provided, you are allocated a locker (locked with your pass) and you’ll need to bring your own shampoo/soap.

Exceptional 10.0
The capsule was very clean and comfortable. I did not feel claustrophobic at all. It has its own ventilation system. Bathrooms were clean. The kitchen had a toaster and microwave but not a full kitchen.

Modern hostel for a one night stopover
PROS - Good Location central to town - clean, modern - bathroom very modern and clean - Good WiFi - nice modern common area CONS - Was told parking $2/night- this is true but it’s also $2/hour during day hours - absolutely zero atmosphere - pod for two people but only one small locker provided and no other room/space for luggage - usb plugs only - no standard plugs at the bed for laptops/cameras etc Would consider staying again but would also look elsewhere
