I reached Singapore by taxi from Johor Bahru. The taxi stop is within walking distance to the hotel. You just have to look for Dickson Road or ask around.
The hotel is also within walking distance to Bugis, and believe me, Bugis is a very fun and affordable shopping place. There are a lot of restaurants around. We went to Universal Studios and Singapore Zoo during our stay there. Because we were 4 people, we just went around by taxi, and getting a texi is pretty easy in that area.
We were 4 people, yet we were given a 6-bed dormitory. So we had an extra 2 beds during our stay! There's a private toilet for each room (without toiletries. Bring your own) and they provide a small locker for your valuables (withour locks. So bring your own) The room is pretty spacey for us. Initially we wanted to stay for 2 nights only but decided to extend our stay to 3 nights. Because Singapore is fun. And the hotel is good.
Breakfast was a sausage, bulls eye egg and 2 toasts with butter and jam. With tea or coffee. From 8.30-10.30 am. I like breakfast time because that's when we meet other people staying in the inn.
The staff are really nice and helpful. They helped us out a lot with directions and recommendations. They even helped us print out a few of our tickets.
Overall, a good stay with a very affordable and reasonable price.
