Managed to get a dorm bed for an okay price. It's a rather cramped hostel. The beds are comfy however the blankets are rather small, the breakfast is good (just some fruit, toast and tea or coffee to start the day) and its about 5mins walk from the MRT and across the road from Lavender food centre. I was forced... More

My husband and I stayed here in a two-person room for two nights during a stopover in Singapore. The hostel was located close to a couple of MRT stations and it was fairly easy to get around, as well as to and from the airport. We were also within walking distance of Little India and a hawker food centre. Reception... More

Awesome backpackers, all the staff were very friendly and memorised our names within minutes. The breakfast is so good!! Toast and fruit, what more do you need? Beds were comfortable although I was a bit cold as I was directly under the aircon!

It was my first experience in a dorm. Mixed dorm - the bed was ok (clean and comfortable), but the location of the bed wasn't really good (it was in a corridor). The hostel staff were really friendly and I love the hostel's location. Oh, their breakfast also really good.

Excellent hostel, staff were really friendly and helpful, and in a great location. Great place to meet fellow travellers. In short it has everything you need and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. I would have no problems staying here if I visited Singapore in the future.

Decent breakfast (try the kaya jam, yum!), close to 2 MRT stations, lots of info around, staff are more than happy to answer any of your questions, close to Lavender Hawker Centre so you can get lots of delicious food, showers are stellar. Rooftop area was a bit of a disaster, and I wish there was a personal charger for... More
