Overall the stay at the pod was pleasant apart from a few things. The breakfast here was one of the poorest breakfasts I've ever had in my life. No eggs, pancakes were microwaved, and cereal selection was bad. Save the money and book without breakfast. The room lights are supposed to go out at 11, but stay on way past......

The staffs are really nice and helpful. The overall rooms, beds,a nd bathrooms are really clean and neat. High speed wifi connection and the breakfast was really nice for a hostel. For Muslim guests, The Pod is really near with Sultan Mosque, so dont worry. And easy access from and to Bugis and/or Nicoll Highway MRT Station

Room: Really neat! The only thing is since the aircon is centralized, sometimes, it gets really cold. But the room is pretty safe, and we have our own big locker.

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.
