I stayed at The Pod for 5 nights at the beginning of May. The hotel was quite easy to find and the location is ok, walking distance from Bugis MRT station. I wish I would have liked The Pod more. Although it's nicely decorated, wifi works just fine and the toilets and showers are ok (though there could be more... More

The Staffs are always kind. and they gave me good advice for our travel. they has good location, offer breakfast and water, especially cheap, that's why I chose this place. And it was so clean and quiet. I'll recommend to my friend who wants to go to Singapore. But I'd like to recommend to only single backpacker.

At first I was a little hesitant as it was described to me as an upmarket backpackers. When I arrived it was so much more than I expected. The rooms are as the website shows comfortable clean tidy safe and secure. The staff are incredibly accommodating, unbelievably helpful and going the extra mile is the standard! Free breakfast, free water... More

We're glad, that we did the experiment and we're glad, we did it just for one night. Using plastic dishes for the breakfast is practicable, but not the best environmental practice. Some of us couldn't find a place to sit for breakfast.

It's definitely not an ordinary hostel. It's an example of what Singapore is built upon, simplistic luxury. For me, the staff was kind and the pod is a hell of a nice hostel to stay in. Worth the experience!

This hostel is great for those who can't stay at those budget guesthouse in Little india and china town. This facility is exact located at midst between hotel and guesthouse. Clean shower facility, high hygiene standard, and private pod. If you are single businessman or job-seeker, I definitely recommend to stay at here. One more breakfast is really impressive. Other...

The bed was very comfortable and had the useful laptop table and plugs of course. I had 5 nights of very peaceful sleep due to the quietness in the... More

At the end of the day it's still a hostel, but the place is nice. The bathrooms are up there for some of the best for a hostel, the beds are comfortable enough and the location is pretty good. I did find the breakfast to be pretty strange though, a mix of a lot of random things. Staff were mostly... More

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighborhood Profile
Kampong Glam
This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly colored fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Center and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.
