I stayed here for two nights with friends on a club outing to Singapore. A friend recommended and it was a good choice in terms of amenities and location. Having travelled and stayed in hostels in Europe, and being on the top bunk I was afraid of waking the guy below me up when I got in in the wee hours up but there was never a sound from the bunk bed when climbing up. The beds had nice shelving to put things with individual electrical outlet for charging devices. Very clean and very well thought out. Really cannot fault the facilities and amenities.
However, I gave it a poor rating for what I felt was shockingly poor guest service. The service I came across was strictly transactional. No smiles (it might have been chargeable I don’t know), no “hello, how you doing” upon checking in, no ‘thank you’ when taking money, chatting and looking at other staff when carrying on a transaction with me (which is rude), or just a “Goodbye and safe travels” upon checking out. I’m not asking for someone to do a song and dance or roll out a red carpet but just engagement with a guest at a VERY basic level was sorely lacking.
