The cleanliness of the bath & toilet area during my previous stay makes me decide to return here. My first time staying at this hostel was 2 years ago. The dorms are now renovated & from what I read, there is a change of ownership. You can find capsule-type of accommodation at Pillow.Talk. Positive stuff to mention - toilet &... More

Warm friendly staff is the highlight of our stay in this hostel. Despite shared bedroom and bathroom, we were able to have a comfortable stay in this hostel. I Would recommend a shoe rack to place and organize our shoes so it wouldn't be crowded to look at. Good job Iku and Vicente!

The staff is what made this place great!!! They were always around to help or just hang out. Lots of laughs! Great location and the outdoor cafe across the street is open 24 hours which is great with flights coming in at all times. Prices are pretty good also. The a/c was really needed at night so that was a... More

Although the rooms are separated by curtains, it wasn't noisy and we could sleep well at night. The hostel wasn't fully booked during our stay there, hence we didn't have to wait to use the toilet. Most of the time, the communal area was also empty. The only downside was not to have A/C during the day, if we chose... More

The staff were the highlight of the place; very friendly and REAL, not artificial! Good location, quiet-time followed, which was fantastic because you can actually get some sleep. Will visit again! It was quite solid and has a good cafeteria to eat at across the road, as well as being close to Little India.

Stay in this Pillow talk hostel is a fun and exciting experience. We got a sheet of rules upon check-in and immediately knew that everyone has obeyed well. We are so happy that we can met new friends and share experiences. It is strategically located, very close to the bus stop and MRT station. The price is also can't be... More

This hostel has positives and negatives. It is one big room that is divided by curtains, into 3 12-dorm bedrooms. The rules of the hostel are well respected and there is air-conditioning all night long, which is great because Singapore is very warm and humid. To be in Asia it's quite pricey, but keep in mind Singapore is expensive. Nice... More

My boyfriend and I booked this hostel after reading many positive reviews online, so what we got was a bit of a shock. I will start by saying that the staff is very friendly and the location is good, five minutes to Lavender MRT stop, but these points did not give it enough merit in my opinion. As other reviews...
