This hostel has a very homey, cozy feel to it. Mike is great. He's willing to help with any questions you have about Singapore. He keeps the place clean and provides toast and fruit every morning. Coffee and tea is also free and other drinks are available for purchase in the fridge. This was my first hostel experience and I... More

Stayed here twice during my trip. It's a one-of-a-kind hostel. The owner is very friendly and helpful, the facilities are great and it's got a nice atmosphere. Also great value for money. Will look to stay here again next time I'm in Singapore.

This is a good hostel. The common area is very homey and cozy. I liked the bread, spreads and coffee available there. Travel tips are abundant in the common area, and Mike is really nice and friendly. I will stay here again when I come back to Singapore. It is a memorable place. Thanks!

Very good hostel for a short stay in Singapore. It is clean and is a good price. It is small and there's not much room to manoeuvre in the rooms but it is good value for money with breakfast. If you stay here you should do the free walking tours advertised here. They are very good with good guides.

One of the best and most memorable hostels I've stayed at in the 15+ countries I've traveled through. Only 3 rooms and 20-something beds so it feels very homey. Easy to meet some new people. Not a big chain built solely for profit. Also not a party hostel which I appreciate. I'd rather have a comfortable bed at this point... More

Very cozy. Mike, the owner, is brilliant and I'd be staying here longer if I could. Bed's are largish singles, clean, comfy and toast, peanut butter, nutella, teas and coffees are all provided and in good amount. Lockers are also provided, so bring padlock and key! Right next to bus stops, not too far from MRT station so easy to... More

Immaculate, Comfortable Bed, and Superb Service” Facilities: - Shower/ Toilet: Very clean. The owner spends a lot of time cleaning the shower/toilet area using proper cleaning products. The water pressure was ok and the water was lukewarm all day, however the water did not get too hot. - Bed: Immaculate. The owner washes and dries all the bed sheets and... More

This hostel is the smallest hostel i have ever stayed. Because of this though it is very cute and has a homely feel to it. Mike the owner is lovely, he provides bread, tea, coffee and bananas all day for everyone. He will also book tours for you at discounted prices. He will also even post your post cards home... More

Every 4 times in year our church celebrates a Thanksgiving to God. Because of this important religious event I discovered a lodging place near in our church. It is very convenient for me because I leave in SG from a location 1 hour from our church . So it is a best option for me to stay in happy snail... More

The owner Mike is awesome and a pleasure to be around. Helpful labels everywhere, e.g. on the kitchen cupboard: "don't leave dirty dishes in sink - thx!" Mike will happily advise you on transport, what to see or do in Singapore, prices on activities etc. - and the common room has great maps with notes. Mike really puts in an... More
