I spend three nights at the Happy Snail. There is a shuttle bus from the airport which drops you off right in front of the Hostel's door step (8$Sing)- takes about 30 Minutes, very convenient and a nice ride too since you pass the Cinty Center and China Town. Mike is a very nice host who speaks good english and... More
