Some reviews here talk about the rudeness of the staff. I do not think she is rude as much as her English is limited and she can come across very blunt. In fact we stayed here nine nights and found her very pleasent. The breakfast is basic but good and although it is a bit out of the city it... More

98SG is a good option to spend a night in Singapore when you're on budget. The hostel is clean, neat, and very well located near MRT station. Few minutes to city center, few minutes to the airport. Very good price for the dorm standard, BUT... whan paying, owner adds 10% to final price whithout explaining why. I know it's still... More

Yes many of the reviews are correct about the owner and caretaker, but you have to remember that we are visitors in their homeland, their customs and hospitality are completely different than ours. We have to learn... More

Don't judge this place from the outside or the building's common stairwell which stinks. Once up on level 2 and inside, it is clean and safe. Obviously, given its upstairs location within a multi-tenant building, it has no outdoor areas. However, hostel makes the most of a very small space. Everything is cramped - but that's singapore. Free breakfast and... More

We verymuch enjoyed our stay here and instead of the 2 night we originally booked we ended up staying for 5. the woman who ran the place was helpful but not always available. We stayed in a 2 bunk room which was air conditioned and very clean. You are not allowed to wear shoes in the place. The breakfast is... More
