Great place to stay in Singapore
This place could be the cheappest one in Singapore. We stayed in a mix dorm with 10 beds. Met some friendly guys from Philipin and Vietnam. Going out for China Town walking around 5'. MRT train station same time. Definitely come back and recommend to all friends traveling to Singapore.

Clean and relaxed place
I stayed there for one night in a 10 bed room. The lady at reception was lovely, the massage chair in the break room is excellent, and the whole place was clean and tidy. I thought that the capsule bed would offer more privacy, but unfortunately I was wrong. Every sound made in the middle of the night can be heard in the whole room (some vocal guest in the room made their feelings towards this known). I cut short my stay to book a private room in another hostel. Having said this, this is no indication that the hostel or staff are bad, the whole capsule feature wasn't as private as I thought it would be.

Why Stay in Box Capsule Hostel Singapore
Box Capsule Hostel is a great choice for those looking for a hip place to stay but is on a budget. It was like staying in a house with your friends. The interior are always kept clean and sanitized. Footwear is not allowed inside. There is ample free breakfast at the pantry. While the bathrooms are co-ed, the shower and toilet are put in separate stalls. Security is also not a concern as guests are provided for their belongings while the front door is only accessible by a combination key lock given at check-in. One thing I liked when I stayed here was when we arrived at 2 AM and we had no issued getting to the hotel and to our room. The staff were quick to answer our questions even at this unholy hour. :) I would stay here again when I'm back in the SG!

Perfect location, great experience!
I had informed the hostel that we would arrive after midnight, so when I finally arrived, a night portier was at the reception desk, ready to check us in. The staff is super friendly, especially Miss Yani, who likes talking to all the guests and help them figure out what to do and where to go. The rooms are nice and clean, and the beds have curtains, which gives you privacy and a good nights sleep. Every bed box has its own reading light and power outlet, and the mattress, pillow and blanket are all comfortable enough. The storage locker is quite small, but you can store your luggage in another room. The showers and toilets are located downstairs, which is a possible disadvantage if your room is upstairs, but since I stayed in the room downstairs, I was quite satisfied with it. The showers and toilets are mostly well cleaned. A simple breakfast with cereals, toast, jam, peanut butter, fruit (apples) and eggs are provided free of charge, and the pantry is also nice and clean. On the first morning, there was no bread left when we wanted breakfast, but this didn't happen again. For me, the location was perfect; close to the Maxwell Food Center where you can find great and cheap meals, China Town where you can shop for souvenirs, metro stations from where you can go anywhere you like, and everything else is also within a walking distance if you're up for a little exercise. All in all, I was completely satisfied with my stay here; I stayed for 5 nights.

A hostel with a touch of privacy
True to its name, you will stay in a box capsule style bed with curtains that will give you privacy. It is a few meters away from Maxwell food center where you can grab cheap eats and is also just a few minutes walk from 2 train stations depending on which one you want to take.
