Stayed here for 4 nights and have no complaints at all about the hostel. It was super clean, spacious communal area with free tea/coffee/water all day. Wifi was speedy, tv with lots of channels and a library of DVDs. Rooms are a little cramped but you have large luggage lockers, bed lamp and even a small cupboard in your bed... More

Awesome hotel! Clean and well maintain! Not noisy and you can sleep well! Friendly and helpful staff! The hotel is located strategically in the middle of the town. Near the Bugis and Ferrer Park MRT station (About 10 minutes walk to each station from the hostel). They also provide simple breakfast and free flow of clean drinking water :D

I lived in this beautiful hostel for more than 2 months..for quality and prices, that's the perfect place for backpackers, families or people on business trip. You get everything you need: good breakfast served every morning, wide choice of movies to watch or books to read if outside is raining, comfrotable and clean rooms (and toilets!), fast wi fi, and...

Located in Jalan Besar, this hostel is right between Bugis and Farrer Park MRT station. It takes 15 minutes walking to each station (it will be tiring if you have to do this a lot). However, there's bus station in front of the hostel for easier access. Room rate is relatively cheaper than other hostels. Cleanliness is great, bed is... More

The hostel is clean, simple, and cheap for Singapore's standard. It is located not too far from MRT station, but guests can choose bus over MRT if they are tired of walking. Breakfast is also included. The only inconvenience we found is the fact that the hostel is always packed with guests. Bathroom can be very crowded in the morning.
