    One of the better hostels i've stayed in. The staff was amazing & the pods were cool- bed was big, USB chargers in there as well as mirror, light, hooks & a little pull-out table. But don't be fooled, they're not soundproof or lockable. I could still hear people talking and I had no where to lock my stuff up during the day. Other downsides were that the showers were in the basement and it wasn't a very social crowd (though the hostel has daily events that attempt to get people meeting/talking).

    Pod hostels are a cool concept but this one kinda misses the mark. Its clean, functional, but the USB power ports in the pod didn't charge and the clock/control unit in there wasn't installed. and the showers in the basement were a tad inconvenient.

    I can't really say anithing about the evenings there, because I was visiting the city at the time. It seemed nice with different themed programm. The beds are really nice, because you have some privacy.

    Very Good

    Location next to Subway is really great, and the pods really give a level of privacy most hostels do not have. That being said, the towels I received were dirty(this seems to be a common complaint) and the common area on the second floor looked as if it hadn't been cleaned in quite a few days. Additionally, the paper towels in the bathroom on our floor weren't restocked until the very last day of out stay. Very cool concept, but the whole place could use some more cleaning.

    I though we were going to be in the capsules, we weren’t. Then once in our room, things were okay until i took a shower. Towels were dirty. It was free beer night, they only had beer. They didn’t offer anything other than that. I don’t drink so i was disappointed. I asked for a soda and they didn’t have it. Overall, not a bad experience but over priced for what we got.

    No hot water in the shower in my private room. The room was noisy. I could hear the beep of the elevators again and again as I was trying to sleep. I won't stay here again.

    ATTENTION. I was RIPPED OFF here. By mistake I made a double reservation scheduled for one day before my actual arrival. When I realized IN TIME I sent them an email asking them to clarify if it was me or the system. They never replied so they could charge me two times, although I asked them IN ADVANCE. They didn't want to admit their mistake, the Tom person in charge took forever to answer just to basically tell me to go away. They charged me more than 300 USD to sleep in a crappy plastic box.
