The hostel was clean and nice, good breakfast as well. But there are 2 disappointing things. First, one day i found my bathing equipments (toothbrush+toothpaste+shampoo etc) were thrown into a trash bin. Why was that ? maybe it's not allowed to put them in front of the hand wash basin, then why didn't you put the warning?? how would i... More

Being backpackers, my boyfriend and I learned about this place through a website and booked the 1st week of April to stay here. I can say that we made the right choice indeed. I love the modern style of the lobby. Dining and living room's cozy atmosphere resembles those of a vacation house. The 6-bed dorm where we slept was... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a week last April and we couldn't be more than glad that we ended up choosing B88. Place was quite new and clean. The capsule type beds provided good privacy and shield from your roommate's lights especially if you got a fully occupied room. Room air-con was cold (I sweat myself to sleep... More

I'm a bit ambivalent about this place. It's in a good location in faboulus Little India, close to Queen Street Bus Station, and it's clean and new. The dorms are very private since the beds have walls so you sleep well. But the privacy makes it very difficult to talk to your room mates. You can't see them from the... More

I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights with a friend and my sister in female only dorm. I honestly didn't expect the hostel to be this good! Location is good, just in front of the hotel is a bus stop. It's clean, and lots of privacy. The other travellers are nice and the most important thing is that it's... More

An excellent hostel located in the middle of little india, bugis and farrer park MRTs. Located on Jalan Besar road, which according to many websites, is the up-and-coming area in Singapore. You're only 10mins walk from Arab Street/Haji Lane. Little India is on your doorstop and there are many cheap (i.e. $3-5) places to eat. The staffhere are incredible, nothing... More
