The POD is a very good hostel that I will recommend. They have good service, the bed and facilities are also good. I enjoy three nights there. The rent is also reasonable and cheap. I will book again next time I visit Singapore!

A really good option for backpackers in Singapore. More than a hostel, The Pod looks and felles more like a hotel with share dorms. It also has a really good buffet breakfast and it´s located near a metro station, perfect to go from and to the airport.

I stayed for two nights and loved this hostel. It's located within walking distance to two difference MRT stations and right around the corner from the famous Arab Street and Haji Lane. The "capsule" beds were very comfortable and all of the bathrooms and common areas were very clean. They also have a fairly large selection for breakfast and free...

I would recommend this "hotel" if you want to stay for a couple of nights and don't want to spend too much money which is very easy in Singapore... Be aware that it can get very noisy sometimes because the upper part of the door is just made out of a metal net so you can hear every single movement...

I stayed at the pod for about 4 days for a trip in Singapore. English was poor, but I stayed at ease thanks to the Korean staff, soojin. The tall guy called fird was friendly too, and thanks to yuying, sharon at front office staff.

We stayed for just one night for our flight layover. The location is great since we're able to just walk to the nearest Metro station, and at the same we strolled around and enjoyed the view. Price is reasonable too.

Footwears are prohibited in bathroom and sleeping room area, they provided a locker to keep your shoes and sandals in the corridor. The bed is really comfortable and clean. Breakfast is also great—I had delicious dumplings for breakfast. They also provided water dispenser in the...

We only stayed 1 night, which I feel was enough. It's fun. The actual pod we slept in was fine. I hadn't expected it to be spacious and was pleasantly surprised. They served breakfast too! My husband had booked the Pod and I thought that we'd be "slumming it". Well, it's a more posh version of "slumming it". Warning: it...

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.
