Review: Spacepod@Com Kallang, Singapore

Hi everyone! 😀

As I mentioned last month about my plan for a short trip to Singapore for Arsenal, I’m back! And yes, I managed to travel light with just one trolley bag that weighed less than 10 kg for 3 days… And I also succeed to stay at a capsule hotel for my 2-night stay there.

While this might be something so normal for you guys, those were all my first times for me. So I’ve done a little progress by completing the mission. *lol*

Anyway, a few days ago I made a poll on my Instastory post and the result was that 80% of the voters chose the review of the capsule hotel where I stayed in Singapore instead of the new train from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. So, as I promised… Here I am writing a review of the capsule hotel, Spacepod@com! 😀

Chez Bon Hostel, The Best Place to Stay in the Vintage Part of Bandung when You’re on Budget

I remember once when I got randomly connected to someone through a meme in Slavorum, where this meme compared a place in Croatia with Bali. At that time, our conversation continued to go on through Messenger app and he said he’s been to Bandung, my hometown. And he mentioned about how much he liked Jalan Braga.

Last weekend, I got invited to stay at a hostel located exactly in Jalan Braga.

I don’t usually choose hostel as an accommodation whenever I travel, but the offer to stay at the hostel in the infamous stress that was once the promenade of Bandung in the 1920s? It’s not everyday I could get out of my comfort zone, is it?! 😉

Chez Bon Hostel is the name of the hostel, located in the street who used to be called Bragaweg in the Dutch Colonial era. I think it is the only hostel with such an excellent location in the heart of Bandung.

As I Stayed at I Stay Hotel in JB…

Unlike other cities in Malaysia, I suppose Johor Bahru is not exactly the traveler’s option to visit like Penang, Langkawi or generic Kuala Lumpur because to tell you the truth, there’s nothing much to see in Johor Bahru, or typically shortened as JB.

Most people would probably choose JB only for a transit as the city connects the rest of Malaysia to good ol’ Singapore. Other than that, nowadays you can also visit Legoland or Hello Kitty Town, but then again people rarely make JB their main destination when it comes to traveling.

I was almost relocated to JB for my previous job only to find out that the location of my office is not so far from Legoland, which is practically out of nowhere. But FYI, Legoland is fairly far from the downtown so it’s only normal if you find it hard to get Uber or GrabCar at after office hour.

Therefore, in my last visit to JB, I chose to stay in the downtown as per my friend’s suggestion. As the hotel options in JB can be considered as more expensive than those in KL, I’ve chosen the one that is most suitable for my budget: I Stay Hotel.
