    Property condition

    4/5 Good

    Loved my stay at the capsule hotel, great experience. Shared facilities very clean. Only downside very noisy when person above moves in capsule, bring ear plugs!

    Stayed 3 nights in Jun. 2019

    4/5 Good

    Smooth check in process, friendly staff. Capsules and bathroom were clean. Perfect place to stay overnight, you get your own private capsule. A couple of things that need improvement is that the capsules creaks when going in and out. Had a lot of trouble making the TV work, Netflix wasn’t functioning and you can’t get regular channels, only Chinese shows available. Otherwise overall stay it was a good experience.

    Stayed 1 night in Jun. 2019


    The tv only played asian channels, so disappointing when you can't understand the language. The pod was relatively clean but did have some dust on side walls. But it is in a good location and is in good condition.

    Stayed 1 night in May 2019


    I had deluxe room but the double layered mattress were very soft (sunken). Because it has matress, access to the safe is impossible. otherwise all good though.

    Stayed 2 nights in May 2019

    4/5 Good

    It's interesting for a night or two, but you're sharing a washroom. The double is quite spacious and was clean. You have to be quiet tho after ten might be something to keep in mind..

    Stayed 2 nights in Apr. 2019
