    Staff here are brilliant (Kyrah and Shabatinie) - really friendly and helpful! They create a fun atmosphere! Great to have a bit of privacy and also the place is clean! Minor issue with the showers being a little bit small, but not really a problem. I would definitely stay here again!

    A clean and cosy hostel/hotel with very friendly staff. Right in the center of town. It’s a little tricky to find (dodgy looking elevator on the seaword side of warison square). Nice view over the Harbour from the common area. The only down side is the noise the pods make when unlocked is loud and will wake the whole dorm if not the whole hostel. Overall a very nice place and would stay again.

    The location, right on the seafront, is excellent. However, finding the place at first would be difficult as it has no signbaord and you have to find a dingy lift to go to the place. Ask nearby shopkeepers at Warisan Square to point out the location. The ambience of the common areas was comfortable and warm, and the capsule itself is roomy and large, so you have no need to fear being claustrophobic. You cant turn off the buttons' blue light so bring an eye mask.

    The seaview capsule hostel offered sufficient facility so overall stay was great! Just want to comment on the lift to go up to this hostel is too bad

    Clean and cheap but not much atmosphere. The pods give you your own space but can feel a bit ‘hemmed in’

    Thought the capsules were a great idea, the rooms were clean. Although the pillows were rock hard!The staff could barely speak any English.Liked the card games left on the table to play, the location is good as it is right on the sea front and close to shopping centres.Would have been nicer if they got lockers that worked so you can lock valuables away rather than in your room. They offer breakfast (toast) which is a nice idea for a morning as not many places do. I would recommend for short stay

    Very Good

    The capsule was comfortable, but it was difficult to regulate the temperature and the TV didn’t work. All the lockers were broken which meant you had to leave you bags next to your capsule and then lock your valuables inside the capsule when you go out. Tea and coffee was free. WiFi was ok, until lots of people were around and then it became slow.

    My capsule didn't lock, which worried me slightly. Though, staff were very friendly and tried to sort it as quickly as possible (given that it was a public holiday).I expected a bit more of a 'backpacker/traveller' vibe, but there was none of that. In fairness, it could be down to the time of year. All in all, good value for money, but not a party place at all. The capsules, although pretty cool as a concept, take some getting used to. I still haven't got used to them.
