Great location for a short say in Singapore. Bedrooms are simple, but there is good internet connetion and the staff is very friendly. I would like to add that the staff take care of our luggage on our last day (free of charge) and also we could take a shower before going to the airport.

It is inside chinatown, the MRT is 5 min away, so its really convenient for travelers ! The room is really... More

Actually I stayed twice at this place...and both times were odd.I thought I would give a benefit of doubt.However let you as reader evaluate. 1) the staff take scans of your passport( is this normal?Other places do not, just writing down the number 2) the prices are not low.At this price even nearby there are better places. 3) No Breakfast.Other...

This is a pretty late review. My room was small but I had all I needed for my stay. Although, bathroom and kitchen facilities were shared but it was not a big issue since I spent the whole day outside the hostel with friends. So the hostel was just for sleeping and shower. What I really liked about this place... More

It was my first time in Singapore and I'm delighted to have chosen this place to spend two nights with my wife. Few minutes walk to Downtown and Marina Bay Sands. Friendly staff, clean room, AC, decent toilets and fast Wi-Fi. As I'm coming back to Singapore to fly, I re-booked with them. Just love them!

Decent price for Singapore. Air conditioning in the bed room, free water refill, free laundry, TV, great location. Bathrooms are ok, customer service is alright. Rooms were clean, beds had a little night light, which is great for reading

There are better options even when you are on a small budget. The staff is not very helpful and rude. The bar belonging to the hostel is shady filled with women trying to get you to buy LDs. If i wanted to go to Thailand i would have gone. Oh and the shower and the toilet are the same room.

Easy to find from the MRT, but the airport transfer bus drops you right outside for $9 per person. Easy to get into the city- a short walk. Bedroom was clean, bathrooms were toilet/shower in one- not great. Out room did have aircon- Bonus in the heat. We weren't in there much, but I don't know if I would go... More

Cheap and Friendly Filipino staff. The place is just to good for a short stay in Singapore. They have a water dispenser and high speed wifi. Place is also secure. I'll recommend this to my friends. It's also near to MRT/LRT station. Just a walking distance.
