Solo travel. Stayed from February 19-21, 2015. First time in Singapore as well. The hostel is a long walk from Boon Keng MRT station but definitely it is worth the price and the effort! First, the directions in the website is clear and precise. I found myself in the hostel approximately 10 minutes from Boon Keng. The hostel is located... More

Stayed in a 14 bed dorm with no windows, which made it a bit cave-like and hard to wake up in the mornings without natural light. It was clean, they burn incense in the rooms and bathroom which I liked a lot as it made sure there was no horrible smells. The reception girls were exceptionally friendly and helpful, however...

I chose this hostel based on online reviews and found it to be a good find in pricey Singapore. Conveniently located near Little India, Bugis Street and Kampong Glam, Chinatown is only a few subway stations away, just like the rest of the city's attractions. Public transportation is easily available and the bus stop is just a hop, skip, away.... More

Really enjoyed staying at this hostel - clean, comfortable! And you have coffe/tea and toast with jam available 24h - which is nice! They had good computers to do some research and a nice common area! The only thing is that the rooms don't have windows - but was no problem since we just stayed in the room to sleep.... More
