About 300 meters from a metro-station. Easy to walk to Little India. Asian Foodplaza and other restaurants in the neighbourhood. Near to busticketoffices for busses to Malaysia.

I stayed in June2014. Most of the share bathrooms are half translucent! Because those orange sticker on the wall were pulled off many spots. Furnitures and hostel are damp and dusty, and yes,the room was too tiny for 4 people. No elevator so don't bring too much belongings.

First off, you don't pay a lot for this place, so, my friend and I got a mini room with two bunk beds and had to share with other people. The beds kinda smelled. The shared bathrooms were messy and packed with people's personal belongings hanging or placed all over the space (toothbrush, shoes, clothes). Their only saving grace was... More

Only good thing is location: less than 5 min. Walk to metro. Bed sheet had blood stains, condom wrapper on restroom sink, paper thin walls so you can hear your neighbors every sound, mold on the room ceiling, and lockers were falling apart. The restrooms are so dirty...not cleaned often and have a dark filth film on seat. Showers and... More

Bad service. Value for money per se is okay. Sleep Quality: my bed had a few dusts, I slept in my friend's bed instead. Don't expect too much on the hostel's cleanliness with a SG$25-bed. Location is good; 5-10 minute walk from the Lavender station, depending on your pace. Rooms: quite small (not for people with claustrophobia) They do offer... More

its a budget friendly hostel. dont expect too much for whatever you have paid. Good location, nearby Lavender MRT station, excellent wifi and nice rooftop Jacuzzi. I don't like the smelly bathroom/shower. The morning shift staff is not helpful, i prefer the evening staff more friendly and helpful.
