- Romantic Vacation
Room was expected as shown in picture. Perhaps might need a little bit of touch up. TV channel super limited as I personal feel, without the TV will be better other then that was good. The only thing wasn't satisfying is the service of the Hotel. Receptionist all the while only playing with phone and we asked about the TV channel, they said "is like this I can't do anything" that make us wont be coming back. Have a nice day

- Backpacking
The hotel was so comfortable albeit the lack of sound proof wall between each capsule. The interior was so beautiful with black and white themes! The location wise was quite strategical, a few minutes walk to the jetty, and local attraction, plus with the bus stop just in front of the hotel!

- Backpacking
Stayed for 3D2N in female pod; the room was clean and comfortable, and the shower too, it was clean. The location also close to tourist attraction, cafe and restaurant and also bus stop. I can say this quite strategic. And for muslim, the mosque is only about 500m away.

- Business travel
Location and common space are best. Near to everywhere. Walking distance to everything you'd like to be near with when travelling. Common space design is awesome. Books, sofa, working space, games, internet. Though no pantry space. Oh toilet and shower and hair dryer (important!) are all ok. Was staying here couple years ago when it was relatively new. Unfortunately, now after 2 years few things starting to run down a bit. My locker auto key didn't work. Noisy alarm from the dorm door I stayed at everytime you enter disturbing mainly late night. TV in common space didn't work at all but internet works well. Still a nice stay though. Will still recommend, but hoping they will try harder to maintain the place so it will not run down even more.

- Backpacking
This hotel is perfect for backpacking, comfortable, can have your own privacy, but the air con is a bit hot and smelly for me. The facilities in the shared bathroom is quite complete (hair dryer, shampoo, towel, toothpaste and toothbrush) provided. Staff is not that friendly but others is ok.
