Our Single and Double PODs are partitioned spaces, giving some privacy away from the main 14 and 4 bed dorms. The PODs have mattresses on raised platforms to give a Zen like feel. Some come with ceiling to floor lengthed tinted windows, all have individual fans. Shared lights goes out at 11pm. Our dorms have double bunk beds and are in a large area with plenty of personal space.

This is to keep the space :

1. Airy- PODs partitioned walls are not full to the ceiling to promote good air circulation
2. Bright- thus no curtains just tinted windows
3. Clean- no shoes and no smoking on all floors
Each floor has two eco friendly kampong (village) design hot water shower cabins.

Central air con units are placed stratigically to cool the floors and all designs and themes that have been put up are chosen as best to compliment and promote our eco friendly theme, which is, to be simple, and always go green = less is best, and when traveling, respect the earth!

Toilets and bathrooms are shared.

    The staff were amazing, so helpful and welcoming. But it was nearly impossible to sleep. I had a private "room" but because the walls only go up halfway to the ceiling it was worse than a typical dorm room. Instead of sharing the space with less than 10 people you share it with the entire floor and can hear everything, including whispers and zippers and walking. You can see everyone's lights as well which were on all night.
