“Vacation with family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The room is so spacious and clean. They have friendly staff. The location is accessible to MRT and walking distance to Clarke Quay and if you're up to more walking orchard road is just ahead. I do not like the breakfast, very few choices and taste so bland. I was surprise to see fried noodles for breakfast. They do not have free Internet for guest even for just a few minutes to consume. Overall I like YWCA.

Room Tip: choose 11th floor nice view but pick the rooms front of elevator to have a better view of the city.

The hotel is clean and well located. The beds are extremely hard, Air conditioning is hard to adjust and too cold on low. I turned it off. The most disappointing aspect are the extra costs: Wifi is over $5 for 30 mins, adding about $10 a day to the bill. A small bottle of water is $3.90.

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.

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.
