“A lot of potential, but need to fix a couple things”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Just stayed at plush pods for 3 nights:positive: awesome location, fast wifi internet, very clean bedrooms and a friendly staff. Simple, but good breakfast is also available.Room for improvement:Arrived at 9pm to check in (hostel knew our flight was later in the day). The hostel is located in the second floor so we had to ring the bell. For my surprise, no one answered. After sitting in the sidewalk for 10min another guest showed up and took us to the common area. There we called a phone displayed at the front desk... After two attempts somone picked up and told us to wait 30 min for the next employee to show up. He took 45.The bedrooms are very clean and pretty much what you would expect from pods. The individual lockers are small and difficult to access. I had major issues with the temperature in the bedroom. At 10pm they turn on the AC and the room becomes freezing cold ( they dont provide blankets). At 6am in the morning they have the stupid idea of turning off the AC. At that point the room has absolutelly no ventilation and you find yourself in a sauna with 10+ other people.The bathrooms arent great. Some toilets and showers are broken. The restrooms have no ventilation and smell bad. The showers are right on top of the toilets and obviously, the toilet paper gets all wet when you shower. The showers have no hooks or shelves, so you find yourself trying to find corners to place your towel and toiletries.Another problem of the hostel are the other people. Some guests should not be allowed in. They lacked basic social common sense. for example, you should not choose a pod hostel if you snore really loudly - it didnt stop a couple of the guys in the room. Lights being turned on all night and other noises were also a problem.

Dear auiki,

Thank you for staying at Plush Pods, the newest premium hostel in downtown Singapore!

We value your feedback very much, and we note your suggestions on how we can improve. We want to continue to delight our guests more and more each day. We have changed our AC policy, and also made many improvements to Plush Pods since August. For instance, now we have improved our AC policy, we have added and improved our free breakfast, our bathrooms, our cabin and room hygiene. Now we also offer snacks, drinks and beer for sale for the enjoyment of our guests. And now you can buy attraction tickets to most popular attractions to Singapore direct from our front desk. All for the convenience and enjoyment of our guests.

This is our first year in business, and we are continuously improving and changing. We thank you for your patience, and your kind understanding in areas where we have failed to meet your expectations. We promise to improve day and day, and relentlessly pursue guest satisfaction as our main objective.

We hope to welcome you and your nice family back to Plush Pods soon to see our improvements!

Have a nice holiday :)
