It was clean, modern, relaxing, as private as a hostel is going to get and good location. The service was great, especially Winnie - always smiling and ready to help. We enjoyed the food in the area Bugis, both the cheap street food and the food in the bottom of the shopping centre.

We have never stayed in a hostel before and were nervous to do so-sleeping with strangers in the same room etc. We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and good nature and energy of the entire building. Everything is very clean and open and welcoming well-maintained. If you are a well seasoned hostile-goer this place will be pleasantly refreshing and... More
