Pretty Cool Pad.
Cleanliness was top shelf. Security excellent. Location great. Excellent Vietnamese Restaurant right next door with the Best Spring Rolls in the World! Plenty of other Restaurants, and Shopping Malls, and the very First McDonalds ever in Canada near by! If You choose a top bunk ‘pod’ whether male or female, be a little bit fit, for the little ladder. In my early 60’s made me feel like a Big Kid again! And I thank them for that. But plenty of lower bunks, and even real easy access handicap bunks too. Lockers, showers, towels, laundry all there. Excellent location for A before or after stop over to YVR Airport. Super friendly Staff. Best Treat I gave myself in awhile. Pretty cool Pad and Young Vibe for Young and Old. Thanks Panda . . . .

It was central, inexpensive, and convenient. If one wished interaction with others one could have it; if not, one could keep to one's self. Air circulation in pods means forced air noise, so one must be prepared to accept that sound and movement. But with the common lounge available, one does not feel confined to one's pod.

A couple of issues to resolve
It was my first time in a pod hotel although I have read about them years ago in Japan. But as a solo traveller this time it was a good fit ....except there were plumbing issues. Toilets clogged, sewer backed up and even when I was directed to use disability toilet, it was leaking at the floor gasket. However my stay was very short so no big concern. Otherwise service was excellent, the overall cleanliness top notch, set up and safety measures well considered. Need to work with neighbouring restaurant properties as back entrance is marred by the smell of rotting food waste on both sides. I will still recommend with these issues addressed.
