“Great location and clean.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Stayed in a 4 bed dorm. All clean, comfortable beds, good air con. No chairs for clothes but a small cupboard for storage. Small bathroom for 4 people but sufficient towels etc. Nice functional, empty swimming pool but only 2 sun lounger chairs. Breakfast good. No free wifi, which is a big fault and should be included. Liked the location, opposite the park and close to the metro.

Clean & spacious rooms, great location. Go to Douby Ghaut station & take exit B, cross road to Park Mall, take lift to level 4, walk down 'out' ramp of car park & YMCA is on the right. Very close to Orchard Rd & Plaza Singapura. Breakfast buffet was very good - fresh fruit, cereal pastries & toast, hot food. We stayed here with our 3 children & it was perfect for us.

I was upgraded to a corner room which was larger than the regular rooms. Overall I found the hotel a great value and very convenient for transport. I'd stay here again - though I might be a bit less content in a smaller room.

The room was big, beds were comfortable, breakfast hearty, the proximity to Dhoby Ghaut MRT station and the Orchard Retail Belt were definitely awesome points. (Hence the satisfactory rating of our hotel stay)

However, it stops there. We were actually quite disappointed by the cleanliness of the toilets. Upon checking in, a trip to the toilet made my insides turn, as I saw a few bright yellow urine spots on the toilet seat! This showed that housekeeping were not vigilant enough in santising the hotel room, after the last guests left.

It was also surprising that for the price point and the fact that the rooms are pretty old (refurbished hostel), there was no free Internet connection. I've stayed in cheaper places which are also newer, who doled out free Internet access to hotel guests. We may come back, if only improvements are made to their cleanliness and guest services.

We arrived at 11pm to stay in our reserved park view room. It turned out to be a parking lot view room with a very heavy smell of cigarettes. The reception informed us that the park view rooms were given on a first come first go basis and that the hotel was fully booked. Next morning after complaining again at the reception we eventually got another room, with a somewhat better climate, although we could still smell cigarette smoke. The windows cannot be opend by the guests and this may explain the lingering smells. Still, if one reserves a non smoking room months in advance, one expects the hotel can deliver. The breakfast is good and the staff is, generally speaking, very nice.

Room Tip: Come early in the day to have the best chance of snapping up a real non smoking room!

I was supposed to check-in the hotel at 2pm but when I arrived at 2pm+, the room wasn't ready yet. The manager told me to wait for 5 mins however that 5 mins turned into 20 mins of waiting. Then I politely questioned the manager if the check-in time is 2pm and to my surprise, he told me (not in the nicest of manners) that the room is to be ready after 2pm and not by 2pm. So, don't expect too much of customer service or friendliness from the staff there. Negative experience toward their customer service.

For those who are going to rent a car, please remember to get the free car parking tickets from the reception.

As for the room, it was clean and comfortable. However, there wasn't any WIFI available.

Within the hotel, they have a nice restaurant which served good food and they also have a small souvenir shop worth visiting.
