We only stayed there for one night, but the hostel is really nice. It is located close to little India and close to a MRT station. The bathrooms/toilets and rooms were really clean and nothing to complain about. You also have your own locker in the room, which is nice for locking in you stuff when you are not in... More

The location is near Boon Keng MRT station so very accessible. It's also near the Mustafa Mall and Little India, so in case you need money changers, just do a little walking. The rooms are simple but clean and sleep-worthy. Free bread and a choice of butter, Nutella, Jam or PB for breakfast. Their staffs are friendly and really approachable... More

Clean, large dorm rooms with fairly comfortable beds, very friendly staff, and a small breakfast of toast and tea in the morning provide you with what you would expect for the price in Singapore. Be sure to check out the nearby Lavender Food Court for cheap, delicious food. Also, I'll add that there are hot water switches just outside the... More

The lobby was quite simple yet equipped with all the necessary things that you'd expect in a hostel lobby. The rooms were big and spacious. The owners and the hostel staffs are extremely nice and helpful. The goof thing is it has both a computer on Windows and on Mac operating system. There is a general store right next to... More

Hostels in Singapore are pricey but had hoped for better. Could have used a few more bathrooms and a bit more of a scrub, a sheet in addition to the questionable blanket would have been nice too. Did have decent lockers and a plug beside the bed, reading light too. Staff were fine but sadly not present when we needed... More

Hi, we provide linen and blanket so there must be some mistake that you did not get yours. The staff must have gone for his/ her meal when you are checking out. More

The room was nice, spacious, and we got our own lockers and socket which was really nice. The bunk beds and HIGH I had to get to the top once to grab a converter and almost fell but my boyfriend seemed to be able to handle it. Breakfast was yummy, toast and more importantly NUTELLA! Bathrooms a little dirty and... More

A good hostel, dorm was comfy, individual light and plug socket, with personal lockers, it's very clean and has helpful staff. Be wary of the laundry ( they shrunk some of my clothes). Free Toast for breakfast and free tea/coffee. It's in a good location near other hostels and a short walk to the MRT. It's close to food courts... More

The place is good,.near from MRT station and from food court. The staffs are nice and smiles a lot but they need to be more informative to guest. The upstairs bathroom is a little messy. the bed itself is comfy and clean.

The staff are friendly and helpful, good location close to the MRT, Wi fi is good I managed to download some books and movies. Free coffee all day. Breakfast, toast, peanut butter, Nutela and some mornings even cheese. Dorm is good value for money, each bed has a locker and a bed light. Private rooms not worth it, would rather... More
