My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night during our road trip in November 2019. We picked this hostel due to the fun concept of sleeping pods. We realized soon that although it is a fun idea, it is also very inconvenient when you have a lot of luggage. We shared a double sleeping pod and had to leave a lot of our stuff outside the pod due to a lack of space inside. This was alright since the hostel wasn’t too crowded during our stay, but I might have felt differently if there were people sleeping in the pods close by. The pods also lack proper sound insulation, which can be annoying. Aside for these inconveniences, the staff was very friendly and we enjoyed the free breakfast.
