The location of this hostel is good. It is located adjacent to a bus stop along Lavender Street (less that 5 minutes walk) & a food court across the street. It is situated on Level 2, thus travellers will need to go up a flight of stairs before arriving at the reception. WiFi is available at the common area &... More

Although I did like the G.K., it didn't have the "feel" of a backpacker's hostel. The small common area was dominated by computers, so everyone was on facebook. The rooftop terrace was quite disappointing, dark, and with little activity. There were no lockers for backpacks. The lights in our room and the wifi were not working very well. However, the... More

Such a good hostel. The staff here are so friendly and very helpful. They can help you with whatever you're wanting to do. The rooms are decent sized but the only downside is that there is no main light so coming in late at night can be difficult. The showers are amazing! Best I've found in hostels. And there's two...

Amazing Service: Always willing to help, to show the points of interest in Singapore, the best way on how we could get to those places. Regarding the location, is about 10 minutes walking until the subway. There is a market open 24 hours a day just right on the street in front of the hostel where we can find and... More

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Staff is super friendly and they give you a delicious breakfast (peanut butter and Nutella...need I say more)! Close to the subway to go anywhere! Loved it!

There's no doubt to stay at this backpacker hotel. Great, informative and friendly staffs with also informative reception and internet area giving you a lot of informations for anyone who haven't visited Singapore before. The internet provided (both on free-to-use Desktop and wifi) are fast and giving it more credit for me. Tidy and clean room could give you a... More
