“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This place is terrible, I can't believe people actually like it, hundreds of flies in the showers, noisy dorm right in front of the office and right beside the outdoor kitchen/smoke pit. Pay the extra few dollars and go elsewhere

It's my first stay at ABC Hostel and my fw times of my visit to Singapore.
I always different hostel in my each visit to Singapore and ABC was a great decision to stay with my Hubby's big family :)
Zeny who dealt with me and the other staff and the owner also was so helpful and friendly.
We found everything we need by asking all the staff there.
The hostel is so clean and tidy.
The most important is the location is very good, very close to Bugis so we can go anywhere easily.
We surely recommend this hostel to everyone.

this is my First Time Stay in ABC Hostel and my 2nd time go to Singapore. ABC Hostel is Closed with Bugis MRT (5 Minute) and Bugis Junction and Market. The Room is so Small but the Air Conditioner is Cold for me:) . The Breakfast is Standard.

If you a Budget Traveller, you can stay here:)

The cheapest hostel that I'd get in Singapore. The staffs are friendly and helpful. Pretty basic hostel. The dorm is pretty small and cramped but its OK as it was pretty clean. The shared toilet/bathroom was clean too. Wifi connection pretty decent. The hang-out area outside of the hostel is where I'd mingled with other backpackers. The inside common area is pretty small with satellite TV. Pretty popular among Asian travelers. Close enough to other places like Arab St., Bugis, Little India, etc.

Stayed here for 2 nights in 10 beds shared dorm. The room and the shared toilets are clean. Its a basic hostel and very popular among Asian travellers. Near to Bugis and Arab Street. 10 minutes walk to the Bugis MRT. 5 mins to the famous Zam Zam Murtabak. 15 mins to Mustafa Centre.

Nice hostel with a helpful owner. The air conditioner works well. The shower is ok. The wifi is good.

I and my friends stay in a dorm with 10 beds, and it is fairly enough with the cash you pay for each.

Things that out of our expectation is: the female room is located in the 3rd floor so it's quite tiring to go downstair.

Out of all, this hostel is a nice place to stay in singapore.
