My main reason to book this hostel was, Location. At Clarke Quay MRT. You will be at Central Mall, just across the road with bridge or walking, and then walk about 80 meters with the same flow with the cars. You will see Hong Kong Street, turn left and you will find the hostel. I arrive around 11.30PM then we... More

The dorm room is average, bathroom/toilet enough. Wifi is quite good. And we can get breakfast free (breads and coffee). i got 24 SGD for 1 night which is... More

I may not say that this is the best hostel in Singapore. But the staffs are very accommodating and approachable. ROOM - Very comfortable. Comfort room/ Toilet - Naku! Nawalan ako ng tubig! Di tuloy natapos ang pagligo ko - Nasa 4th floor kasi yung room ko. Tapos sabi ng cousin ko nawalan din sya ng tubig habang naliligo. Ayan... More

The location is perfect, close to some attraction in a walking distance. The hotel is clean, wifi connection is ok, if in the room is slow then in the alley is much faster, and if you forgot your gadget PC in each floor is available. In the pantry you can make your own breakfast and coffee or teas and don't... More

1. Daily housekeeping - not true, they only do that when you leave, they don't change the bedsheets nor throw out the trash. 2. Laundry service - SGD$3 online, but it's actually SGD$10, they say they didn't update their website which means that a lot of it was from 2002, 13 years old! 3. Shower - well, we live on... More

Location is good but you can also find other hostels in the area with good customer service and much better room accomodation. They have this Filipino receptionist with the worst customer service and an attitude of a lady living in a squater area. She will argue with you when you simply have a quite and nice questions. She shouts. Rooms... More

Great location! Friendly staffs. I was in the 8-bed dorm room. Sorry to say that the amenities was poor. There is only one toilet and one bathroom in the first floor! And it was dirty. What I liked best was the location. It's very strategics. Near Chinatown, Clarke Quay Center, Singapore River, and Raffles City districts.

The location of this hostel was quite good, plenty of local buses and mrt stations nearby, as well as restaurants/shopping centres. On arrival, we were given keys and told to pay a deposit. As there were two of us, we expected two lockers, but only one was provided. Also I'm not sure why the other key was given, as the... More
