If you're looking for a budget hostel (solo or biz trip) to stay then this is the place. Within 10mins walk to 2 different lines of MRT. One of them is located in Chinatown (Purple) while the other is at Tanjong Pagar (Green). I was greeted by friendly and helpful staffs and they even show us what we can do around chinatown or getting to the city. The famous "Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum" is just 5 mins walk away form the hostel. If you love drinking then this location is super awesome as well. A quiet, dull looking road at day and a happening road at night (weekends only if I'm not wrong). There's tons of place that you can go drinking over there
If you know who Gordon Ramsay is then probably you should try this chicken rice stall as the staff told us that Gordon Ramsay lost to the chef of this chicken rice stall and even Anthony Bourdain did visit his stall. So you know how good he is.
The only downfall to this hostel was, the air-conditioner was cold enough. It was ok but i would prefer if it would be slightly cooler. Other than that everything's awesome! Would definitely stay here for my future biz trips
