This was my first time staying in a capsule pod. Plenty of room inside the pod, enough to sit up without hitting your head. Four channels on the tv inside the pod with one in English. The fan pushed a tiny bit of air around but not much. Overall the temperature of the room was comfortable, and if you open your privacy shade up a bit on the bottom, more air gets into the pod. I did not have a laptop with me but they did have wifi throughout the place. I was in a bottom pod and overall it is pretty quiet, although i believe the person above me was pretty loud getting into his pod after midnight every night and even with earplugs, it woke me up. As long as you have relatively quiet people around you, and you wear earplugs, you should not be disturbed.
Breakfast was basic. As mentioned, toast, butter, jam, juice, corn flakes, coffee, tea are available, enough to at least start the day.
The bathroom was adequate, I happened to get into the shower each day between 6-7am and there is no problem that early, the later it gets the more busy it is for the 3 shower stalls. A hairdryer is provided there for your use. And the view is pretty cool at night from the bathroom with the high rise buildings of downtown and the Singapore Flyer in the distance.
I also used the washer/dryer with detergent provided. No problems.
Nice place close to the Clarke Quay MRT station and the bus is right outside of the building. No real complaints at $110 SGD for 4 nights. There is a $25 refundable deposit for the key to the locker and access to the 4th/5th floor.
Would definitely recommend for a cheap stay within Singapore.
