I searched for the cheapest solo accomodation and Fernloft served my purpose without dissappointment. Location is great, Chinatown, right behind the Buddha Tooth Temple and with hawkers food market across the street. I had a girls dorm room (6 beds), no windows, good airconditioning. Breakfast consisting of toasts, butter, jam and nutella is served every morning. The host, Aini, was... More

We booked fernloft for one night. I woke up scratching and realised I was being bitten by bed bugs. Moved to another spare bed and continued to be bitten. Also advertises a 4bed dorm but has 5 beds. Much better options in Chinatown!

Aunty Aini was awesome, can't put it any other way. This was my first time staying in a hostel and it was wonderful. Everything was really clean inside, and the location was amazing - Chinatown is a great place to stay in you're gonna be staying in Singapore for a bit. All the beds seemed to get their own power...

Wonderful place to stay. Aunty Aini is a great host who cares about each guest. She cooked a wonderful dinner for us. I also needed a vaccination for my next stint of traveling and she was kind enough to take us to her doctor. It is clean, and safe. I will be recommending this hostel to friends and will be... More

The location is great, close to China town MRT. The facilities are what you would expect, clean bunk beds, shared showers. PC available to use in the common space. But what really stood out was Auntie Ainee. She was very helpfui. And really made this place feel like a second home. I've seen some bad reviews about her, but i've... More

My two friends and I (all are boys, sophomores) visited Singapore last August and stayed at FernLoft Chinatown for two nights (from 7th to 9th). Also this was our very first trip abroad so we were very excited! What we like: very very convenient location: the hostel is at the heart of Chinatown, easily access to city center with many... More

First of all the location is fantastic! You can see china town from the balcony! Bit of a walk to little India but the MRT station is really close. It's up off the road so you feel very safe. The rooms are okay- usual hostel but the entire place is super clean. It's small and cosy. The manager auntie Aini... More

We stayed at Fernloft Chinatown twice recently and both stays were excellent. The hostel is tiny compared to many backpackers. Two dorms and small communal area with reception desk, computer, breakfast bar, two showers and one toilet BUT this is all complimented by the large veranda that can be access by two different doors. There are tables and chairs on... More

My friend and I stayed here for nearly a week and we loved it. It was comfortable, had warm showers, working internet, great food court close by, and it wasn't too far from the metro station. But none of those things were the highlight, the best part was the owner. She was so kind and helped us book anything (such... More

A small 16 beds hostel in an HDB complex. I and wife stayed in the mixed dorm, comfortably cool even it is windowless and without the air conditioned turned on. Each bed has warm light (so you can read at night) and electric socket. Every bed is assigned a locker. My locker was broken so I couldn't lock it. Nevertheless,... More
