I really enjoyed the privacy of the pods while staying in hostel accomodation style and you could lock up your private items There is also a safe within the pods It was extremely comfortable and you had everything you needed Lights, chargers,air conditioning and it was very clean and spacious ( being a bit claustrophobic )no problem Because it’s a new concept few things can be improved and it needs conversations The fridges supplied are not big enough to host a sell out accomodation I was lucky because it was quieter but that is an issue because you can’t cook which is fine with me but defnetly not enough fridge space . I encourage you to make a rule that people need to clean there dishes dry them and put them away like in any hostel situation . The kitchen is full of dishes drying on the sink and people take advantage if it A coffee pot machine would be awesome where you just supply the machine and we need to purchase the pots You could also sell them with a little bit of a profit The quite rule within the accomodation should be pointed out while checking in and be firm about it These were no complaints just suggestion to make it even better then it is I was very happy with the accomodation and will stay there again but there is room for improvement always Thank you Bianca

Great price and location and clean. Pod was great. Multi storey council car park 1 minute walk away has overnight price of $2 after 5.30pm to 9am. The doors into the pod room are normal swing doors that click loudly - that constant clicking kept waking me up - even with ear plugs :( - these 2 doors need to be replaced with silent auto sliding doors ASAP ! - then I can stay again.

A different and fun take on a hostel stay. I always looked forward to bed time and had trouble motivating myself to leave the pod to get up in the morning since I was so comfortable
