My friends and I booked a private room good for 6 persons. Upon arrival, we were asked to pay for the full amount for 5 days of stay.
The room was composed of 2 bunk beds, the one with three levels where a person can not even kneel or else he will hit the ceiling with his head. There is TV that we did not use, aircon that leaks and does not function well, a door that has a broken knob and the management 'fixed' it by putting a pad lock from the outside with only one key. Yes, one key for all six of us.
Beds were at least soft but me and my other friend kept on getting allergic rhinitis every night, dusts perhaps. The pillows/pillowcase smells awful too. I had to cover the pillow with one of my shirts so as not to smell it.
The communal toilet/shower is terrible also. When I arrived, one (of two) of the toilets had tissues laid on its seat, indication that someone used it and pooped in it also. I just flushed it but did not dare touch the tissues on the seat, and 3 days after, the said tissues are still there. It was very hard to shower also because there is no kind of any hook or soapdish to put the toiletries on to, not even a hook for the towel/used clothes.
The good thing is, the wifi is pretty reliable. There are at least 3 routers, all which are fast.
A 3 min walk away from Kallang Station.
