Comfy friendly hostel with great staff but very small rooms at the end of lots of stairs. Good location near to Chinatown with easy access to the MTR (subway) and walkable to Causeway Bay and some green areas.

However, accommodation in Singapore is expensive and this time I decided to try a hostel with private room.

The place is very comfy. The staffs were all lovely and helpful.It's more like a home than a hostel. Thing I love the most about this place is all the guests get to write their messages on the wall!<3

It's very very tiny but clean and has got a friendly atmosphere. If you are an easy going type of person and if you don't mind sharing, you would like this place. One of my nights staying here, I had a chat with some travellers, which is an interesting experience. This place is not bad for female travellers, as the... More

My wife and I booked the triple room as the double room was already booked out in September 2014. We were willing to pay a higher rate in order to have the extra space we thought we would be getting in a triple room. Upon arrival we were shown to the "triple" room only to find it held 2 sets...

We stayed here for 2 nights in a private double room with a shared bathroom. Our room was perfect for what we needed with FANTASTIC air conditioning which made us very happy, considering the heat. The room was spotless when we arrived and the bathrooms were as well for our whole stay. In terms of location, we were situated right... More

Good location and clean facilities. The staff are the best! So friendly and helpful. We asked them about everything, and they could always answer. Helped us out on what to see and what to skip considering sightseeing. I would recommend this place:)

This is literally seriously the best hostel I've ever stayed. I stayed here for 1.5 months in total. I feel the hostel is more than just a hostel for people to rest for a few days. It does make me feel like it's my home. Staff here are very positive, smiley, friendly and helpful Bathroom and toilet are very clean... More
