This is a bright, funky new hostel, but it’s let down by privacy and security issues.

Starting with the negatives, the rooms are not really private, as the dividing walls do not reach the ceiling. This means both noise and light leakage. The rooms can also only be locked from the inside. And the beds are mattresses on platforms. PODS does have much going for it too, including very friendly staff, high standards of cleanliness, funky decor, and a great location, but its quirkiness will not appeal to everyone. All dorms/rooms have air-con. Rates include a simple breakfast and WiFi.
