I came across The Pod through Google, booked through Expedia the day before I arrived, and am so glad I did! It is exactly the kind of place I required: clean, super tidy, quiet, free and fast wifi, women`s dorms, really friendly and helpful staff, lockable storage, fresh clean linen, close to public transport for airport missions.

The bed is comfortable. Loves the privacy provided & the value for money. Locker provided is convenient. Changing room like the retails with full height mirror. You actually will be able to change your clothes on you bed by pulling the screen down. The down side is just the lift under renovation till 7 July 2014.
