Recommended Pod in Chinatown”
I arrive in Galaxy Pods at 10pm with warm welcoming, friendly staff, the staff accompany us to room, explain how to operate card to unlock the door and telling us about the pods and others completely, the pods near MRT Station Chinatown, 7eleven store, and Chinatown Shopping Center, finally i enjoy holiday in Singapore, especially stay in Galaxy Pods for 5days and will be back soon 🇮🇩 Love from Indonesia.
My 1st Stay in Galaxy Pods @ Chinatown-Sgp”
After a nmbr of trips to Sgp, this was my 1st time staying in a backpackers' hotel. I selected and tried Galaxy Pods @ Chinatown, stayed from 22 to 25 Nov.'18 in a single pod. All staffs are very friendly and they replied all my questions well. Room in the pod is clean and the lighting is good. I did not tried the TV.. But, the free wifi is excellent and fast. Continental b/fast (toasts+jams), boiled egg, corn flakes, milk & orange juice were served every morning. Tea & Coffee was served free 24 hrs. However, if we get bored eating the same b/fast everyday, we just walk to the hawker center very close-by. The shared bathrooms were clean including hot water shower. Some minor points were : matress was a bit too thin to sleep and need more sitting tables and sofas if we get bored staying in the pods. Overall, I was quite happy with Galaxy Pods @ Chinatown and probably when I return to Sgp, I will choose to stay in Galaxy Pods @ Chinatown again. Bravo and well done to the management !!
Fantastic stay at Galaxy Pods!”
Had a 2-nights stay at Galaxy Pods and it was well worth the money! Location obviously was fantastic if you want to roam around ChinaTown with the MRT being just around the corner. Despite the pods looking rather small, it was spacious enough when inside. I'm a little claustrophobic, but the pods felt great and the matress including the pillows were extremely comfortable. Facilities were also great too, toilets and bathroom were always available. 5 stars for Galaxy Pods!
New Pleasant Experience, Good Breakfast, Walking distance to Chinatown MRT”
Double bed Pods were spacious for a 6.1 foot person and two people. Separate common room themed spaceship and galaxy concept. There were packets of coffee, tea and creamer next to the hot water machine (Filter) near pods which was very convenient even for late arrivals for refreshment. Breakfast was filling and served in a common restaurant on the Chinatown roadside. There are two access cards and one locker which was sufficient for 55L and 50L traveling backpacks to fit in. Cleanliness and space in the washroom can improve. The sliding door is not holding onto the locker, if someone force the door it could be open from outside which wasn't satisfactory (as my partner had to watch over the door while I'm inside). Washing basin (Sink) is small. For a hostel, I think it's acceptable to have untidy washrooms. Staff was helpful and checking was faster even at 2.30 am. I had kept the access card in locker and closed tt by mistake and requested for support. The matter sorted immediately.
Great Stay, Great Location, Great Service”
Best part about these pods; privacy. It's basically bunk beds but as soon as you're in your pod you have total privacy. Highly recommended. Next time my wife and I are in Singapore, we will come and stay here. P.s I am usually not very useful when it comes to reviewing a place I stayed, but these galaxy pods were so good that I absolutely had to spread the word.
Worth for the price ”
First time stayed at galaxy pod, this was really worth and good for a solo traveler. Provided basic facilities what you need in a basic hotel, and the place is quite near to MRT Station, just need to walk 3 mins to arrive. Their breakfast time start at 6am, because I need to check out at 6.30am but before check out I still can enjoy my breakfast. It’s just a simple breakfast but is still feeling better than need to go out buy foods in 7-11. If have chance to visit Singapore next time, I’ll still choose this place again.
Good location, near the Chinatown MTR around 5mins walk. (Just right after Pagoda Street). Many food choices, near Maxwell hawker center too. The staffs were great and approachable. For me, if you're just a backpacker type, galaxy pod is good for you, less expensive compared to hotels.
great spaceship pods”
the pod is clean and comfy, good breakfast with bread and jam, cereal and milk, orange juice and egg. location 350 meter from MRT Chinatown exit A. definitely will come back. thank you Galaxy Pods @chinatown
Awesome Place to Stay but need more attention”
This place has a unique design of capsule, comfortable to sleep, very good spot for bar lovers because around you many bars and pubs.. But they hardly clean the bathrooms and rooms around your capsule (maybe they clean up at noon and evening) when most of people go out.. I hope you clean bathroom and room much more.. Good thing your capsule can be cleaned all time except at evening till night.. Breakfast is very good and the staff there is very friendly and nice (keep up the good work) Thank you galaxy pods @ Mosque st. Looking forward to come back..😁
Sleeping in a spaceship!”
I've never actually stayed in a hostel before but the idea of sleeping in a spaceship was to enticing! The place is literally a two minute walk from the Chinatown metro stop and pretty easy to find. The pods were really clean and fun! We had the double pod and it was better than we expected. It looked like there were about 15 pods in total. You share four bathroom/showers with all the guests and the facilies were quite clean. Overall. I had a great time and would recommend this place if you want to spend a little more for a spaceship hostel!
Great Value and Location”
The hotel is located near Chinatown MRT(5min walk) and a bus stop just behind the hotel. Nice pods, aircon is working perfectly, hot tea&coffee in room, nice small tv with headphone provided, the hotel is full booked that day but i doesnt even met anyone so its a plus! Recommend to choose for the lower pods if you doesnt want to annoy someone by moving around too much inside.
Small but great!”
We had an amazing 3 night stay at the Galaxy Pods. Although quite small for two people (we could’ve used an extra locker), the pods and bathrooms were always clean, staff friendly, temperature was great, and even free coffee/tea. Great location as well. I’d definitely recommend staying here for a few nights!
Best option in similar arrangement ”
I have tried few similar options (POD concept) in the area of Chinatown, Clark Quaue, Boat Quaue. My preference will definitely go to GalaxyPods considering value for money, POD design, cleanliness and maintenance of washing area and breakfast menu/layout whereby GalaxyPod collectively is by far the best.
THE HOTEL DIDN'T DISAPPOINT”
This hotel deserves 5 stars. With clean pods, room, unlimited coffee biscuits, friendly staffs and perfect location, it's a great place to stay at SG Chinatown. I will always choose this place whenever I go to SG and will definitely recommend it to friends and family. Keep it up!!
GALAXY PODS @ CHINATOWN Singapore”
I was welcomed by their helpful staff and assisted on all occasions during my 4 day stay. It was an interesting [and new] experience and I felt like the young HANS SOLO from ''Star Wars''. Several other nationalities were present [UK; Russia; Thailand; Germany; Portugal] in my section AND all ''first-timers'' to the POD experience ... GREAT for the solo or budget traveller AND so close [250m] to the MRT and Sentosa Island Resorts/Universal Studios . Recommended for the younger traveller as the stairs were a bit of a ''killer'' for me at 66 yo ... A GREAT experience !!! Thank You from Australia ...
Great location, cool place to stay ”
We were really glad we chose to stay here mainly for the perfect location at a good value price. Yes the walls are quite thin so you can hear people who snore or move a lot in their pod but we had pretty decent sleep considering there’s 12 pods in the room and they’re fully closed off so you get privacy. I would recommend this if you just want a good value bed which is centrally located. Plus it feels like a space pod which is cool!
Hotel capsule with many facilities”
Room was big enough for walking, distance between capsule better than other hotel capsule bed. Mix room (man and woman) but safe. Room with automatic light control, if somebody walk it will light. Bed was big enough, supplied with 2 standardpillow and 1 small pillow, towel and white linen. Free standard breakfast like bread and jam, milk, eggs, hot and cold water. Bed is in same room with bathroom with hot water, and several sink for brushing teeth/wash hands. Single and double capsule ready. Sometime noise in the night when some people walk and talk. even a couple do ML early in the morning in the closed door capsule. Futuristic capsule. Nice experience. Near chinatown and bus stop, train station. Many restaurant nearby. Safe neighbour for children. Not so crowded and quiet environment. A drink machine supplied outside hotel so we can buy some cold can/bottled drink and sit in some high chair in front of the hotel. Big enough safety box for our cabin luggage. Capsule with door can open and close with keycard. So its safe if we keep inside or keep big luggage when we go out. Nice friendly staff. 10 dollar for deposit, can easily take when we check out. So its nice to try new experience stay at this hotel and safe some money to spend / shopping hehehe than stay in star hotel.
Very interesting place. You will have your own galaxy capsule with sockets and TV. But outside the capsule there are a lot of neighbors. You need to understand it. Place is clean but a lot of luggage on the floor. You can enjoy free coffee with cookies hole day! Breakfast is included to the price. It's a small buffet in the cafe near hostel. There are no many choices but it's enough to start your day!;) There are boiled eggs, toasts with peanut butter and different jams, cornflakes with milk or juice, and coffee.
I'd love this pod experience. It was great for visiting Singapore on a budget. Felt like I was in the future! Also theres a perfect little local Chinese place just outside to the right, try it out!
Quite expensive for what it is”
Pros: good location. Near MRT. In Chinatown. Clean sheets. Free water refills (hot&cold), cookies and tea/coffee. Free breakfasts are basic but ok (toasts+jam+milk+cereals+boiled eggs). Cons: THE PODS AREN’T SOUNDPROOF!!!! Not soundproof. Also, it’s near a karaoke bar, you will hear people singing all night long, even in your pods.
