The hostel is good for backpackers who intend to stay for 1-2 days. We stayed there for a night, it was recommended by a friend's friend. We had to walk far because we went off at the wrong MRT station (Little India) it is nearer Farrer Road at the basement of City Square Mall. We were in luck because the... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in August 2013. This happened to coincide with Singapore's birthday. ( yeah we didn't know country's had birthdays) which I think led to the price being a bit more expensive. We stayed in a 16 bed dorm. One problem staying with this many people is that there's a good chance you'll find at least... More

Overall the hostel was ok! Location is on a main road so not ideal but there are plenty of nice Indian restaurants nearby. Staff are pretty nice, but the atmosphere was off! Seems like the only people who stay here are locals or people looking for work!

Great location in that it's <5 minute walk to the nearest MRT station. There were also food places nearby! The staff were okay, but not SUPER friendly. The room had a good working aircon and the ventilation was very helpful! The beds were uncomfortable and they were extremely loud/creaky/moved alot! It was annoying, but bareable. It felt like the $25... More

We were travelling in a group 16 adults. The hostel lobby was very nice and comfortable with free WiFi access makes it convenience for us to connect our phones and tablets to send messages and pictures. We also enjoy sitting on the front terrace of the hostel which is rather the side walk. It has an excellent location with very... More

My husband and I went to Singapore last 2011 to present research papers in a conference. We decided to stay in a budget hotel since most of the time we are out. Fernloft is an ideal hotel for us since its cheap, with free breakfast, near train stations, near malls and good food. At the same time, fellow kababayans manage... More
