Good things: it's clean, more private than a typical backpackers hostel, spacious locker to put your luggage/belongings, location close to Town Hall station, Not-so-good: - some of the fittings are showing wear & tear (eg the bathroom/toilet door lock being broken) - you'll make lots of squeaky noise trying to get into a top capsule. - light: you might have difficulty falling asleep, there's always a small amount of ambient blue/white light on inside the capsule Would I stay here again: yes, but only 1 noght.

It was good to experiment the place out however the quality of the capsule is not good nor reliable. The room the capsules are in also smelt stale and off putting.

I've wanted to try this place for a while and I really enjoyed the stay here. It's very noisy but that's mostly city noise but I slept through it all. The capsules are plenty roomy altho you Can stand up in them. I would not suggest this place for elderly or mobility challenged people.

Loved the heritage building feel with a modern twist. Bathrooms, while being unisex, were very clean and intimate. Capsules were a little creaky, but that was expected. Loved staying here, would recommend to anyone looking for cheap overnight accommodation, and a unique experience.
