          Nice capsule hostel”

          It feels like you have a private room. It's cosy and the location is really nice. The breakfast seems nice with self-making waffle. There is 2 dorm room on each floor with 2 shower booth and a toilet. I was worried but had no problem for 5 days. Staffs are all nice. But It can be noisy even in the evening if you don't close the window. The garbage truck keeps collecting garbage all the time. I will come back again. Thanks.

I felt safe and the place was clean and neat. Officially my first time staying in a hostel by myself. It was a cool experience.

          Location, friendly staff, privacy..

          Code is not a 4 star hotel, but definitely a comfy, and welcoming B&B. The staffs are friendly, they try their best to answer all my questions and help whenever they can.. They don't use key and you can access the hostel, your room, your locker with personal passcode. This is the first hostel i experienced with podbed.. It really ensure privacy... They have a common area and a kitchen for you to cook.. The hostel located at Rose Street, just right next to many restaurants and bars and cafes... and it is just a short walk to the train station and other sightseeing places.. the only downside is they should have bigger locker that can fit a medium size backpack.. my fellow roomates and I have to leave our luggage outside the locker because it is not possible to fit.

Also, places and stuffs were so clean. But there was no lift, so if you carry big suitcase or bag, it’ll be hard to carry it to bedroom. But nice staffs will help you :)

          Although I enjoyed my stay in the hostel, I found there is a fatal mistake -- password system. It seems that every customer can access other guests' room using their temporary password. The system could be really dangerous if someone knows and takes advantage of it! So please fix that problem and then it should be perfect!

          Hi Shang-Wei, Thanks for taking the time to write a review about your stay at CODE hostel. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Our code entry system is very secure as every guest has their own personal code, which only works only on their respective dorm room. We have emergency codes setup that we will give out in certain situations, but these codes are also on a per room access level. Meaning that one emergency code only opens one door. Thanks again for staying with us and we hope to see you again at CODE! Cheers, The CODE team

          Cheap and Good”

          The hostel is in the middle of everything from sights, shopping and food. This modern hostel is like the capsule hotels in Japan. The pod is really comfortable, has much more privacy than the bunk beds, has practical things like shelf below the power source, hook & space to hang your clothes. I like that it also comes with your own big safe in the room. The windows are not sound proof so you may get noises from the pub next door. The bath + toilets are shared between both genders. I rarely bump into guys in the same toilet at the same time. To use the hair dryer, one has to either use the power in the room or at the reception area downstairs. The toilet does not have power and I can never find an appropriate time to use it in the room as some guests were still sleeping. This hostel has no lift but the stairs are wide enough for you to move any big luggage. Staff are very friendly and helpful. They even help me to carry my luggage up to the room.
