The room is way good enough - fast free wifi, the staff, quite helpful - but best of all is the interesting, alive neighborhood. Plus it only cost $40 USD/nt. Just around the corner I was selling some t-shirts i brought from the states at a sidewalk 'flea market' - prostitutes where abundant and it was a hoot to watch... More

We booked through the travel agent and didn't know what kind of hotel it was because it was a package deal. Anyways, we booked 2 rooms and when we arrived, only 1 of the rooms was available, we requested to have 2 rooms close to each other on the same floor and were told that it might not be possible...

We stayed here for 2 nights in between flights and were a little disappointed. As other reviews have said, it's in a seedy area, but it is a 10 minute walk from the MRT station. Our room was relatively clean besides the sheets but the rest of the room was average. The rooms are absolutely tiny and our bathroom door... More

Its 10-15 minutes walk to the MRT station. +Its near to restaurants. Clean rooms with everything you need. Wifi works good. -smells like cigaretts in our room (bad luck?) Prostituts in the streets at night. Good for the price! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Seeing the other reviews on here makes me think that either I had a good experience or other people are just overly picky. The location isn't bad. Short walk for food and the MRT. decent price especially for Singapore.

This hotel is in the Gaylang area (Red Light Area of SG) probably not well suited for everyone. Although we had No problems and there is an MRT station nearby. Had to book for a transit stay as other hotels were occupied. Very Clean hotel with all the required facilities including a bathtub. Little overly priced within the same range... More

There is nothing cheap in Singapore, so if you are stuck for a night on a budget this is what you get. I found the area interesting, including the girls of the night, but it's obviously not for everyone. There's some good, cheap food and drinks nearby. Room was clean, although you cant help but wonder about previous inhabitants. If... More
