The price wasnt too great, but it is Singapore. The hostel is pretty clean and the staff are neither really good or bad, just there to check you in really. It is located in the middle of the tourist district in China town, so there are plenty of places to eat nearby. It was an okay stay, but I think... More

I wouldn't book this hostel anymore in the future. I booked a room for 2 persons. But the room was extremely narrow, not even 2 persons were able to stand in the room. The room had no windows and no fresh air, so it was hot and not ventilated. The was a shared bathroom in the first floor and also... More

Pros: Great central location, clean beds, good transport options, no traffic noise. Mediocre: 90% of the cupboards have broken locks, kitchen area is cluttered, bathrooms are pretty standard S/E Asia fare. There is a computer for use, if you're not travelling with something to pick up their wifi on. Cons: No walls, just curtains between the 'dorm rooms', so it's... More

Of course since its a hostel you really cant expect much on space however its a good hotel. There are a lot of appliances (e.g. microwave, hot and cold drinking water dispenser) to use. There are 2 PCs also that you can use to browse the Internet and there's a free WiFi for everybody. The hostel is located in Chinatown... More

It's very clean. Washing facilities are clean but they don't work particularly well so you're better off washing them yourself in the sink. The twin room has no space to even move around, so if possible, get a double room if you're with a mate. Maxwell food centre is about 5 minutes walk down the street, so food is always... More

We have choosen this hostel because of the price and location. But unfortunately I did not expect that the 3persons room will be only 8m2, so there was no place for our suitcases. and there is NO window in room! At least there is a free washing mashine on the corridor. And do not expect too much from be bathroom... More
