“Ok for a short stay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

The hostel could do with some maintenance, not overly clean and the rooms were very small. breakfast area was outdoors so was quite messy and couldn't cook. It was quite loud with guests checking in and out throughout the night, however this was due to our room being opposite the reception area. Due to the location it would be ok for a short stay but plenty of nicer hostels in the area for this price

Location is very good...just a short walk going to and and from Little India MRT Station...saved us a lot of time! Area is very near the usual food restos and two 7-eleven stores. Small but tidy when we were there. We took an 8-bed dorm which is best for my entire family since we had the room all to ourselves. Typical double deck bed and inspite of some negative reviews we read here...tidy/clean, no cigar-smell and no roaches in our room. Bed is okay though only one pillow is assigned per bed. Airconditioning is good too! For an overnight stay, this is a perfect place to stay.

Room Tip: Highly recommended for a very short stay. Area is safe. Though a little bit noisy at night. If you...

If you don't want to read longer explanations, here are my main complaints:
1. The hotel downgraded my reservation without asking me.
2. In a period of less than 12 hours, I killed four cockroaches in my room.
3. Extremely loud.
4. Not clean.
5. Ultimately, overpriced for what you get.

1. My girlfriend and I booked a room with a double bed 45 days in advance. On the morning of the day of our arrival, we wrote an email to the hotel to confirm our reservation and to advise that we would be arriving at approximately 10 p.m. When we arrived, the hotel employee said, "Um, actually we don't have the room with the double bed for you." We had to sleep in the two-person bunk-bed room, which is a windowless prison cell. How does a hotel mess up a reservation made 45 days in advance?

2. Because the hotel leaves all its windows open with no screens, and because there are no doors between the kitchen/bathroom area and the guest rooms area, the guest rooms are easily infested by insects. In my one night's stay at G4, I killed four cockroaches in my room.

3. The hallway outside the guestrooms has a tile floor with no sound dampening material, and the rooms also have bare tile floors and bare walls. Consequently, sound echoes loudly inside the rooms, even from all the way down the hall. My room was as far from the bathroom as it could be, but I was still awakened at 6 a.m. by the sound of a man vomiting his guts out into the toilet. I was also kept awake by constant noise from other guests having loud drunken debates, locking each other out of the rooms for fun, etc.

4. The showers and toilets were not clean.

5. I paid $72 Singapore dollars for the worst night of accommodation I've ever experienced. Should a room of that price be infested with cockroaches? For S$72, should I be awakened by the sound of someone vomiting? Should I expect a clean shower?

I stayed here for a couple of days. What I didn't like about G4 is that the beds have bugs. But nonetheless the place is okay,it is accessible to all modes of transportation in Singapore . Little India MRT station is just a short walk away. Bathrooms are communal but clean.

I would not reccomend this place to any one.
While the location was really good that was THE ONLY thing good about it.
We were refused extra pillows and a blanket, told we had to pay $2, which for comfort we were happy to pay but the person we spoke too did not want to give them to us, and told us to turn the air con up. So we went without.
The linen provided is only a sheet to cover the matress which is like a slab of concrete and a pillow case for the matching slab. You would be really lucky if your pillow, pillow case and sheet, and blanket did not have holes in it or were not stained. If your bed lamp plug doesnt fit the power outlet you are also asked to purchase a connecting adaptor.... Hmm This lamp is supplied by G4 station but we had to purchase an adaptor if we wanted it to work...
The friendly staff .... who can speak good english actually DONT understand a thing you are saying and say "I don't tknow" to any question you ask about anything. They assured us of their cleanliness... we had to ask for the toilets to be cleaned, there was a cockroach in the same place all week. We shared our room with cockraches as well. We couldn't walk down the side of the bed in the double room.
i understand this is budget accomodation but please....to be refused something we had to pay for and were happy to do so is going a bit far on the budget side !
We couldn't wait to get out of this place. And obviously the travel agent will be told about this too.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.
