As the name of hostel, it is built for backpackers. We had 12 people and stayed at the hostel only one night. Rooms were clean. Beds were comfortable. Staff is nice enough, not really helpful. Toilets and showers were always busy. There were no lockers in the rooms, so we needed to take care of our belongings by themselves. Public... More

The staff are really nice and it is really convenient, only need 3 mins to MRT station. However, the air conditioner was weak in my room and the bed was not comfortable. It is highly recommended.

The city is known for its high living cost, so I didn't expect to much from this hostel(paid S$20 for a night). Had to climb 3 flight of stairs to reach it, but the impression was good. The place is clean and quiet enough. The staffs were really nice and they know everything about the city, they were like my... More

Its not hard to find food, there are 24 hour Kopitiam near by (at MRT Station). The staff are very nice and friendly. The room ar quite clean,... More

The showers are dirty and to my impression they don't change the bedding everyday. Rooms are quite small and basic. On the positive side, staff is friendly, the mattresses are comfy and they have double beds in the 4-bed dorm rooms. As for the free breakfast, I would rather have breakfast in the city (food in Singapore is great and... More

Two lads on reception were so much help! They knew everything about Singapore, from interesting things to see to the ins and outs of getting to Malaysia. Rooms were basic but perfect for backpackers. You have to go up three flights of stairs so make you're fit and able to do so as there is no lift. 5 minute walk... More

Rooms and AC were okay. Free breakfast. Common showers and toilet. Friendly reception. The only problem we had were BED BUGS in our room(bite marks, skin itch and redness, damn creepy little creatures). That was really a letdown.
