“A fairly good budget hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

The hostel is okay, I suppose. The plus would be its location,cause it's close to the Bugis MRT and near a bus stop so if you're tored of walking you can just hop on the bus for a short distance ( i got a singapore tourist pass so i just took the bus from thestation to here to avoid walking and using the pass as much as i could ). They provide complete facilities from hair dryer to iron ( so you can definitely handle that crumple on your dress like I did) which was great for me. The owner and the staff were really helpful. I tried to get the doubleroom but theyare all booked already soI stayed in the 6-bed dorm which was okay except for a caseof wet towel cause there was nowhere to hang it. Don't forget to bring your own lock so you can use the locker under the bed, or the bigger one outside to store your stuff and keep them safe. The breakfast is average just bread and toast with jam and butter plus coffee or tea, i mean with 20 bucks per night, i suppose they're acceptable. But there's a fridge that you can keep your stuff in as long as you put your lable on it. My advice is to just book it online first so you know your option

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.
