I must say that everything in this hostel.is small, but is a capsule hostel so we cannot ask more. It is a very clean place, with lovely staff really, and comfortable beds. Better if you sleep in the bottom bunk bed instead that in the top one. Toilets are clean but I feel 3 showers per floor are not enough,... More

The neighbourhood at night is rather quite, not as crowd as you in the Chinatown. The staffs really nice and very helpful. I love the room... More

In a city where hotel bargains for solo travellers are becoming increasingly difficult to find, this is an ideal alternative. Located about 10mins walk from Bugis MRT (but also served by the airport shuttle for SGD 9) on a recent transit stop between Oz and the UK, it afforded me the chance to explore Kampong Glam, an area of Singapore...

I'd never stayed in a capsule hotel before, and the POD was a good try. The bed was comfortable and everything was clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Especially the night time desk staff. It's in a good location, not too far from the MRT. The showers can get crowded in the mornings, especially right before check out... More

I stayed in Singapore for only 2 nights on a stopover and I couldn't have been happier with the pod. The location was excellent- literally a 2 min walk to haji lane and super close to Kampong Glam and Bugis area. The staff were friendly and helpful and showed me to my room when I arrived, also minded my luggage... More

The staffs are way nice! Willing to help out with whatever you need. I was there for three nights and very impressive by how they manage this small place into a travellers favorite, not so pricey when you compared to other places around the area.

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.
