    The private room I had was well-functioning and has all the basics for a good price. Room and building access is easy, and staff are helpful. Music tended to play in the hallways a little too early and a too late in the day, with the doors not sound-insulated enough to keep the music from waking me up.

    The location was great., close to transportation options and in walking distance to good nightlife. The facility is very clean, the pods are comfortable and very quiet. The breakfast is basic but fine. Overall I would stay there again.

    Great value, PERFECT LOCATION (right on the subway line, tons of food options), fun to sleep in a capsule. No lockers but my stuff was safe. The capsules have a privacy shade so much better than bunk beds in a dorm hostel.

    The capsule blocks out all the snorers. Very good for a nights sleep. The train is around the corner. The pubs and clubs are on the same street strip. Groceries are 1 minute away. I will be back! The vibe is great. No kitchen sadly.

    I really liked the pods, but it was really stuffy in the dorm rooms. There was no fresh air coming in and the windows did not open.

    Very Good

    Cons: 1. I wish there were lockers in this hostel. 2. Staff could be more friendly and prompted to help. 3. A tad more attention on cleanliness will make for a better stay (e.g. vacuum the rooms more often). Pros: 4. I love the concept of the capsules and the privacy that they provide. 5. Location is great. 6. Would stay there again.

    The only thing this hostel has going for it is the novelty of the capsules. The staff seemed half interested in their jobs and half wanting to be literally anywhere else. The only showers were located in the basement. Also, the capsules were very hot at night since the built-in airways were not working. I don’t think I’ll be staying here again
