Mold smells everywhere. We stayed here in a room without a window and probably got a flu because of the mold. If you go there, take a room with window and hope it's not that smelly. Staff is very friendly and helpfull and breakfast was good because you could eat as much as you want (if there was food left).... More

We booked a cheap private room with a single bunk bed and no window. It was a box. A slightly funky smelling box, but a very well located box. The communal breakfast / lounge area has an awesome view of the river and city skyline. The breakfast was basic (toast and two types of cereals), and the clientele is generally... More

But, the wifi was super fast, the view from the communal balcony amazing and... More

The showers, the toilets and the beds are clean. The beds have chargers and individual lamps. The AC works well and the breakfast is not bad (no one is taking care tho, and the fruits always finish early morning. You need to go and find the staff if you dont want to eat the remains). The location is near the... More

I went singapore for my ruby conference 2015 and decided to choose this hostel. At first, it's really hard to find the location of the hostel as I keep following the wrong instructions that given from hostelworld and I have to ask around to get to the destination and it actually very easy to go !

I stayed for 3 days here, everything is nice except dirty bathroom. The hostel has a superb view on the veranda. Have a good view at breakfast while enjoying the sunrise or at night while enjoying the atmosphere of Boat Quay.

Ideal if you are here for a short visit. Great location. Clean, minimalistic rooms. Good free breakfast. Friendly, helpful staff. Plenty of toilets and showers, never had to wait to use. Good kitchen facilities. What more could you need?.

Staying in The Quays

Neighborhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
