It is at best, central location to anywhere to Singapore. Very near the bus stops snd train stations(Around 3 minutes). Clean and tidy rooms. Friendly and helpful staffs that are ready to help with the directions and recommendations. If you're looking for a simple, cost efficient, hassle free stay, this is the best hostel around.

Stayed there for 1 night in a 4 beds room, I was really tired from my trip and had to change room in the middle of the night, as I was getting eaten alive by an army of Bed Bugs [see picture]. Luckily the staff didn't hesitate to move me to another room. But this shows how dirty the place... More

The room we stayed in was smaller than it seemed on the photos but had good air con. The beds are very rickety, with thin mattresses and hard pillows but I didn't mind that at all. The rooftop is really pretty, and location was very close to the train station (on the same line as the airport) which was perfect.... More

I arrived at the hostel and they wanted to give me a super tiny 4 bed dorm with mold all over the ceiling.It was my fault, that I payed before I saw the room! I changed three times and then we got a 4 bed dorm with only a "little" mold around the AC. The room was super tiny and... More

Staff is not friendly,rooms are everything but what they show on their websites where they present themselves as a kind of high standard backpackers hostel with a jacuzzi on the roof top. I stayed there for a week and they only change the bedsheets and cover once a week which means you might be the sixth person to sleep in... More

Probably one of the cheapest non dorm options in Singapore {outside geylang}, Stayed there for couple of days after I left my exchange semester accommodation. Hostel is nothing special, but beds and common areas are ok. Concierge was quite friendly and one night extension was easily possible. Best thing is the location, 3 min walk to Lavender MRT, and only... More
