As silly as it sounds, slippers is an important item for a stay. This place provides none, which means that I have to walk barefoot inside the room, where its floor--in case of this place--isn't that clean.
No free wi-fi. Seriously, no free wi-fi when hostels provide you with not only free wi-fi, but also slippers to be worn inside.
No telephone which means that I cannot ask about details like those directly to the front desk/housekeeping. That'd be 11-storeys downstairs.
Didn't try their breakfast since I was only here for a short crash.
With that being said, it's interesting how the place quote for "membership fee" but there's no sign of membership given afterwards: membership card, etc? You can flash your HI card at HI facilities all over the world and get discount. Does the membership paid pertain only to YWCA Fort Canning? What do I get as a member?
For the 100 USD that I've spent, I'd rather rewind the time and stayed elsewhere, namely: 100 USD ensuite room in hostel with free wifi and slipper, that doesn't require you to be a paid member to be crammed in an elevator with 15 ill-mannered Mainland Chinese teenager boys.
