    Great spacious capsule hotel, bathrooms and other facilities are exceptionally clean, generous daily amenities provided as well.

    Quite some snoring annoyance because capsules are not sound insulated, but earplugs are provided at reception.

    Location is close to train station and bus stops.

    Compared to some other First Cabin properties, the facilities are rather outdated. The set up of the floors are also not convenient. Front desk is on the 4th floor and Ladies Only floor is on the 5th floor. Even though there is an elevator, there are 2 steps to switch from the main elevator to the one specifically for going to ladies floor. The is makes it rather difficult for heavy luggage. Also, the showers are only on the 4th floor which is co-ed, so you have to carry all your things with you to up and down the elevator to use the showers. Staff at front desk do not all speak basic English which is rare at First Cabin hotels that I have stayed in the past. The other locations I have stayed provided much better amenities such as a free WiFi handheld device with attraction suggestions that you can bring outside of the hotel, hot tub, and curling iron and high quality hair dryers. This location on the contrary, has bare minimum.

    I liked the location, the capsule space, the shower.

    I didn’t like the atmosphere, the way everything looked. Not very appealing to me.

    Size of room very good, enough space to put down case and hangers provided.

    Bed very hard and uncomfortable. Big purple plastic pillow on bed I did not want to touch as doubt they are cleaned. No wifi in my room at all. Had to walk down corridor to connect and when I did was weak. Very poor connection in all other common areas. Was only able to connect standing next to vending machine on 4th floor. Staff not helpful when I expressed my concerns. No shower on ladies floor.
