    My stay at Hippo Pod was amazing! I had to find a Hostel last minute. since it's new I benefited from a discount. The staff is super friendly, everything is clean. I even lost my phone and they found it and contacted me so I can get it back. one disadvantage: since every capsule does have it's own TV people watch movies without headphones and you can hear it the whole night. luckily I have a good sleep and it didn't affect me much.

    This place is filthy, noisy and extremely unsafe. We had 4 nights booked in a pod for R180 and when we arrived, we’ve been allocated a room for R340, we were a bit surprised but well… a student party was happening in the shared spaces and we couldn’t sleep till late that night. The lock of the room was broken = safety zero. The worse part being the bathrooms that are extremely dirty and broken. We only stayed for one night and went to another place for the rest of our stay. Not recommended.
