The capsule is amazing with its lights and etc, but very noisy, you can hear people moving and the lockers being opened, as they are very loud. They do provide ear pods on arrival.

Clean and more spacious than they look
Such a good concept, pod was clean and comfortable, I did struggle finding it though as there are no signs, I asked a lady on the street and she was staying there luckily and gave me directions, a guest assisted me to find my way around once inside. I would definitely stay here again
