i find this hotel after we spent 01 night in Grand Hotel of Orchard Road. It has the cheap price. I think their service is suitable to the price. i had my breakfast by myself cooking. Everything has set-up already. After checking-out, the owner was friendly & gave us a souvenirs.

Did one night in the dorm and 4 nights in the private rooms upstairs. Private rooms value for money are better than any hotels in the area. Spacious with a shared bathroom between the two. Only downfall is the stairway to heaven you need to take to get there. Dorm was good. Nice cold aircon which is a must have... More

Great location and price, but was sorely disappointed by managements attitude when I had some money stolen. On reporting it, the manager couldn't stop smiling. I had to ask him to take it seriously, which is strange as theft is considered a serious crime in Singapore. The hostel is super cheap, but not very clean and regularity ran out of... More

Stayed 2 nights in a double room, very reasonable considering the standard of accommodation and the location. Was even given a free suitcase by one of the staff members after the wheels fell off my one. The only shame was it seemed to be only me staying there at the time, place seemed empty

We booked 2 nights online. When booking, we mentioned we only land at 1am,and will probably not arrive before 3. They took our money without mentioning that the reception closed at midnight. Obviously, they did not read our note, or didn't care. We arrived at the hostel door, range the doorbell for 20 minutes, called both branches on the phone.... More
