View is good, nearest MRT would be Raffles place although it is 400mtr walk still. Good for catching a night sleep but not recommended for long stays. TV in my pod was not working also at night they did not start the sky view with stars. Breakfast was bit disappointing atleast

I was going to write a long story with all the bad negative things of this place, but then I read the 1 stars review and the same happened to me. I mean, please just read the 1 stars reviews and this is what you are going to get. If you are a single person and you don't mind

Hi NegroFoster, Thank you so much for leaving us your detailed feedback. It is unfortunate to hear that many things did not meet your expectations while staying with us and we certainly would like to address them. Firstly, we are sorry that we were unable to refund you simply because your group did not want to stay with us anymore. As you mentioned that you are a hotel manager as well, I am sure you are experienced with the type of guests we faced on a daily basis. Our housekeeping team works hard to make sure our space hostel is clean and as you can see from our reviews on various sites, our cleanliness rating is not as low as your perceived. Please take note that we send all of our bed sheets to laundry on a daily basis. Also, the pods your group stayed in has fresh new sheets. When you approached the counter, you mentioned to us that you would like all sheets in all 8 pods to be changed because it was dirty. Our staff personally went up to check and to ask your group and only 2 pods requested a change of bed sheers which we did immediately. Similarly, on your feedback regarding bad staff, it is not something we are known for. It is unfortunate to hear that our hard work is not appreciated simply because we are unable to accommodate to a certain request, such as a refund. Nonetheless, we still want to thank you for staying with us. We hope your visit to Singapore is otherwise an enjoyable one. We wish you all the best. Best Regards, The MET Team

Hi Space Cadet Deecleary94, Thank you for staying with MET A Space Pod and for giving us a perfect rating! We are really happy to hear of your positive feedback regarding your stay. We would also like to thank for being the few guests who know the difference between a hotel and a hostel. It is a shame that many did not know. We are glad to have guests like yourself and we look forward to your next visit. Best Regards, The MET Team

Pod was comfortable enough, and afforded some privacy. The staff were friendly, and the 'hotel' is in a great location. Unfortunately the down side to these pods is that you can hear everything, the first night was fine, but the second night someone checked in about 1am made a

Hi Space Cadet 357matthew, Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to leave us your thoughts. We are glad to hear that you found our pods comfy and our space sergeants friendly. It is unfortunate to hear that you did not get a good sleep on your second night due to the noises by other guests. Unfortunately, as we are a hostel, with shared spaces, some noises are inevitable. Nonetheless, we certainly understand the inconvenience it has caused you and we hope your visit to Singapore was otherwise enjoyable. Cheers, The MET Team

Hi Skyeblue2, Our double space pod is called "Double Space Pod" and it is only available in our Chinatown branch and our upcoming Arab Street branch at the moment. Please take note that in cases where the pods of your choice did not show up, it means that the type of bed has been fully booked on your desired date. We hope that we are able to clear your doubts. Do let us know if you have further queries. Cheers, The MET Team
