They have free wifi, laptop table, 2 plug sockets, usb phone points, a fan, ear plugs & main/reading lights.

The space
Our pods are the ones that you usually find in Japan. They are spacious and so roomy, my 6"2' tall friend tried them out and he fit. The pods have usb chargers for your phones and plug sockets if you want to plug in your laptop and a laptop table to rest it on when working or watching a movie.

There are main lights and reading lights so the pod feels spacious and during set up I would often take myself off and work in one of the pods to achieve some privacy something that can attained by getting into the pods and closing the door. The duvets and pillows are of a good quality and are warm. Bath and hand towels are provided and can be found in the pods alongside a set of ear plugs for the light sleeper.

There are 3 shower rooms with all the usual facilities as well as shower gel, shampoo and conditioner. The mirrors are demist ones and there is also hairdryers and shaving points available too. There is enough space to get dressed and hooks to hang your clothes and towels on. The floor is underfloor heating so the showers always feel warm.

A locker accompanies your pod and is a good size to store your luggage and even has a hook to hang a coat or suit jacket. There's also a little hook in the pods to hang items from.

Importantly, the ethos of POd Central is that we provide quality accommodation for a budget price and that price stays the same regardless of season or holiday. Guaranteed £30/pod/night no matter what time of year it is. Multiple pods can be booked online at pod central.

St Leonards on Sea is a great place to visit and there is so much to do here, from BBQs on the beach, to SUP boarding, sailing, Kayaking to Hasting Old town, the castle, The Jerwood Gallery the list is endless. We have great eateries and breakfast at Dandelion's and coffee from Milk and Hustle are not to be missed. Our town is vibrant, eclectic and exciting. Whether your on a day trip and stay over one night or are coming for a week's visit pod central can provide a safe place to stay that is exceptional value for money, meaning you can concentrate on having fun without the worry of the cost.
