The experience was what I was after, the idea of sleeping in a capsule for a few nights was actually really cool. The downside; if you think the beds are twin singles, they’re not. They are singles like kids singles. If you’re tall or a heavyweight person, you may wish to ensure you will be comfortable in these capsule beds. My friend has back issues & she was lucky to have been able to find a little comfort. The front entry door is hardly ever closed properly. We had strangers actually walking in who were not guests of the hotel. One guy wanted us to let him in, I was lucky enough to have let the door shut properly or he would have followed us in automatically. The experience of sleeping in the capsule was fulfilled. The safety side is something to consider & the comfort too. Cleanliness is good, they clean every day!

Bad mattresses I got a sore back, Bad kitchen no stove to cook on, only one single potable electric hot plate for a 1 hundred bed hostel, the opening and closing of the bed capsule doors gets very loud and annoying when trying to sleep. Televisions in all capsules are not in use they don’t use them anymore. Can get hot and stuffy in bed capsule. Broken lock on our dorm door couldn’t lock it no security to keep out any undesirables.

Having a hostel set-up but with the beds separated into lockable pods is genius. The pods themselves were roomy, and definitely had a cool spaceship vibe and fun bright decor. Options to store stuff securely were good. Staff were pleasant. Price is great for the amazing location. On the other hand the place is poorly maintained. The front door isn't closable and the lock is broken. The lift is difficult and hazardous. Toilet cubicles are tiny and showers have no privacy. Top pods are difficult to climb in and out of. In-pod safe was broken or had no instructions, In-pod TV had no remote or instructions. Even with my air con on full my pod was 28 degrees come morning, even though it was a nippy 17 outside. Pod is full of little lights and the lights from other pods get in. Mattress is very very thin, and the cover is a cheap blanket in a doona case, pillow is a thin brick. Air con is noisy, but doesn't drown out people loudly getting into their pods etc. Mine was next door to a laundry room and somebody used the very loud vibrating washing machine in the middle of the night. Overall, I love the idea behind the place, and if everything had been new and clean and working and I had thought to bring ear plugs and a better pillow it would be a five star experience. Instead it was the worst sleep of my life and I had to shower in my work building. I didn't want fancy accommodation, but you can find at least workable facilities at most hostels.

Friendly staff. Although there's a lot of construction in the area, remember this is a hostel it's a place to snooze. Clean and great is all that matters.

The capsules are surprisingly comfortable, and a good night's sleep is definitely viable, even with the light rail works outside.

The receptionist guy could not speak or understand English. No instructions were given about bedding (I found it in the morning after a freezing night) or lighting in the capsule. The smoke alarm beeped at irregular intervals through the night. When I told the guy he said that another customer had complained about that! It was noisy. I would never stay there again, and I would not recommend the place to anyone else. Cheap and nasty.
