Guest Reviews of Bluewaters Pods @ 38 Hong Kong St in Clarke Quay, Chinatown


"Stayed here for the 2023 Singapore Grand Prix weekend and I loved that it was accessible to MRT stations and bus stops, making it a lot easier for me to move around. Stores, restaurants, shops are also near, very convenient. The staff were very helpful and courteous. Rooms were vacuumed daily and restroom were also okay. Great place for the price! Thanks for the pleasurable stay!"


"The staffs are great! The clearness met my requirements. The local is convenient. I really enjoyed everything about this hostel would definitely stay here again whenever I am back to Singapore!!!"


"I definitely recommend Bluewaters pod. It feels homey and safe place. It's cozy and clean, the staff are is nice and kind, answers your query politely. Also, the place is near to train station and nearby tourist spots destinations. I would absolutely booked again on my next trip the second time around. Thank you."




"Everything is really nice. Close to MRT station, and also can walk to China town. And the price is the best"


"The location is great! Walking distance to several MRT stations."


"Good position, can walk to China town, easy to take a bus. Many famous restaurants nearby. Bed is comfortable."


"The location is perfect . Its nearby all the train station and food establishments. What I dont like is the restrooms are not well maintained. If you are carrying heavy luggage , be ready to climb up the stairs."


"Very clean and the location is near to the public transport. One thing is...need to climb the stairs hahaha there's no lift. But it's suitable for young and solo travelers. Overall is good =)"


"Considering it's a hostel, the shared room was clean and comfortable. There was no breakfast included, but there was a coffee machine with capuccino and hot chocolate available all day long. The shared bathroom was clean, there were amenities and hair dryer available (and even a small basket where you could donate the cosmetics you didn't use anymore or use someone else's toiletries. The location is superb!"




"Overall a very good stay here. Pod was comfortable and got a good sleep. Light and shelf in the pod are nice additions. Bathrooms/ showers were clean and functional. While AC is switched off for a period in the daytime it is very good outside these hours. Check in was efficient. Free coffee/ tea is a nice touch. Location is excellent with easy access to Clarke quay, MRT, convenience stores etc."


"La ubicación es perfecta. Está como en el centro de todo lo que puedes ser en 3 días en Singapur. Metro, bus, en la puerta. Caminando a Chinatown. Rodeado de dentro comercial y lo que necesites."


"Very clean! Had 0 issues my 6 nights great location I personally walked everywhere on my trip and used the underground once but it’s so easy to get round either way"

"Good position, good price, good boss, good room you need to stay here"


"Very well built pods. Sturdy and not shaking"


"Fair enough. The bunk beds were comfy and clean with air-conditioning. The comfort rooms for men were also clean but seemed to be shared even though it has a Male and Female sign. The only thing that surprised us is the entrance. The smell of the all the shoes. Though we understand it can't be helped to keep the corridors and floors clean."


"Love the staff are super friendly bedroom & toilet was super clean.. will be back to here soon if i going to sg again haha nice hotel & place in front of the hotel has 7eleven market so dont be afraid to buy food or drinks.. near MRT Clarke Quay too..nice place lah"

"Located in a city near MRT and it’s walking distance to many attractions. It’s quiet and safe."


"Location ok...nearby food shop circular road with reasonable price, good service from the Malay gal staff The only disadvantage is u need to climbing up to 3rd or 4th floor, but with the rate they give accepted."


"I traveled with my friend. We booked a queen bed for 2 ppl. The bed is comfortable but there is only one electrical hole for charging so we have to take turn for charging our phone. The bathroom is shared and was clean. This hotel is closed to Clark Quay and Boat Quay, good for partying and walking around at night."


"located in the night life zone of Singapore"




"I truly recommend this place to all travelers. I stayed here for 5 days and all I can say is, The Best. Mae and other staff members were very friendly and quick to respond to your needs. The different areas of the hostel are very clean and organized. Check-in and out process were smooth easy. AC is working great."


"I got no complain, for a hostel this is very good for money. Funan and national gallery are walking distance, clarke quay mrt and bus stop are near. The steep stairs maybe a downside for some people, but it's not a problem for me. Got a female only room at level 3 and the female bathroom is on the same floor. Clean, friendly staffs!"


"I'd say it's above average - for the average backpacker like myself. I'd consider staying here again."


"Modern, bed is clean, quiet but the location is as good as it can get. Host/owner will show you around, she is really nice. Free coffee in the kitchen. Bathroom facilities could be cleaner but I've seen much worse. Totally recommend!"


"Overall good for solo traveller who needs a bed just to sleep and cleanup."


"The bed is comfortable. Some of the guests are friendly."
