The Pod busted my cherry in terms of non-hotel lodgings.
I have to say, it was not only painless, but I would definitely consider staying here again should I find myself traveling solo to Singapore in future.
Arrived around midnight, and the housekeeper (receptionist is an inaccurate term as she manned the front desk, took me up to my bunk and briefed me on the facilities as well as cleaned the dishes in the communal kitchen island) was very efficient and welcoming.
Dorms and loo look as advertised -- with the addition of a little extra shabbiness (hard to avoid with communal living) setting in. The individual pods are great and have privacy screens, an individual light and 3-point electrical outlet and a stowaway shelf in each unit. Lockers below the bunks are accessible by your key card, same as the dorm rooms. The mattresses were comfy enough and you get two pillows and a comforter.
Self-contained shower/toilets number 3, but was in too late and out too early to have any complaints about waiting to use the facilities. Soap and shampoo are provided in dispensers and you get a towel with your pod so don't worry if you didn't pack any of the necessary.
Breakfast was basic but satisfying --pastries, bread, local food in warming trays, a dessert, cereal. Coffee is nespresso (a plus point). You can basically just help yourself to what's in the fridge. Most people leave their cups lying around, and the housekeeper is really on the ball with keeping things tidy so no worries.
There's a 7-11 nearby and a bus stop right in front of the entrance. Hopped the 107 to Lavender MRT station to catch a train to Changi. Information to do so also provided by helpful housekeeper.
Overall, a good place to rest your head and get cleaned up. Nice decor, great facilities, great service, and lots of nice little extras you won't get even if you stayed in budget hotels rated a notch above this one.
Not for you if you can't sleep through the slightest noise.
