I was surprised that the hostel had no front desk. What greeted us was a telephone pinned outside the door and a post saying we should call a certain number before we could check in. After calling the number, the staff came over to assist with the reservation. We arrived at 12PM. We were informed that the check in time... More

If you have an enemy recomend this place and for sure you will get even. Stayed here this march 2012 with my gf. Place is so crowded and you can't even move. No privacy at all and worst, one of their staff is a thief. "SHE" tried to steal the bag of my gf hide it under the foam bed.... More

Budget accommodation in Singapore. Just 100 meters from Aljunied MRT station. Very near to hawker's food stalls. Free wifi and internet facilities. Air conditioned rooms with common CR / Shower Rooms. Will stay again with 98SG on our next visit to Singapore.

We had initially planned to stay three nights here as it was cheap and located next to an MRT. We later decided we would treat ourselves to a night at the Marina Bay Sands and so I emailed to cancel the third night, no response received to email, and when I turned up she was going to still charge us...

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

I research many other hostels in Singapore before I traveled and one of the things that attracted me to 98SG was it's location. 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
