“Great value B&B”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

We are a family of seven adults who traveled to Singapore last week. We enjoyed our 5-day stay at Gusti B&B.

Great value: clean facilities, comfortable beds, clean mattresses, pillows and bedding.
Convenient location - approx 300 meters away is the Lavender MRT station which is along the green line and connects directly to Changi airport). There are at least two nearby food courts and grocery stores (Fair Price & 7-Eleven). Mustafa Shopping Center and Our Lady of Lourdes Church are 1 km and 1.3 kms away, respectively.

Operators Bernie and Audrey are friendly, charming and engaging. Sue is very passionate about her work.

Breakfast is basic - tea, coffee, bread and spreads. There is a fridge and microwave oven to store and reheat precooked food (we brought our own cooked ham, yoghurt, cheese and fruit juices as we are heavy breakfast eaters). There is a hot and cold water dispenser.

Washing machine and dryer are available ($8/load for use of both equipment).

My wife and I travel to Singapore 1-2 times a year. GUSTI is one of the best B&B's we have stayed at so far. I would highly recommend to friends.

Areas for improvement:
1. Lighting was a bit dim in our room and likewise at the 3rd floor common area.
2. WIFI signal was quite weak inside our room.
3. Installing exhaust fans in each toilet and bath rooms will help flush out odor and humidity faster.

Stayed here for three nights and found it to be a great hostel. The dorm rooms were all exceptionally clean and matresses had covers on them so no chance of bed bugs! Kitchen and bathroom areas were clean and well stocked. Hostel was very cosy including a tv area and different communual areas on each floor. Location is excellent , very close to the MRT station.

The owner, Sue, was so friendly and helpful. A real character who is on hand to help with any requests. She gave us great advice on getting across the border to Malaysia.

Overall a great place to stay and a reasonable price compared to other expensive places in Singapore. Would recommend to all.

The hostel is really cozy, the reception has a couch and TV available to all guests in all floors, toilets with shower separated in all floors as well. The breakfast is served from 7 to 11am, they have a water filter that you can use too, a whole kitchen with fridge, dishes, cups, forks, knifes, etc. The rooms are super clean!! I think probably the hostel is new. You have to take your shoes off at the reception. In my case, sleeping just wasn't 100% because there was noisy people in my room (8 people dorm for 2 nights), but if it wasn't for that I'd have rated 100%. The hostel is close to a train station, and the staff is really helpful and nice. An exception to all other hostels in Asia I've been, this one has a shower separated from the toilet, which is great!! But the sink is in the kitchen, though it's fine. I've been to 4 countries and this hostel was my favourite!

We stayed here for three nights and loved the cleanliness of the place and the women who ran it. They were always willing to make us feel at home and comfortable. Whether that meant giving us directions or talking to us about the going ons of Singaporean life, they really gave us a lot of insider information about Singapore.

The place is very close to MRT which makes it an ideal location. On the way to the five minute talk to the MRT station is a grocery store, 711, Wendy's, bistro. And enough Chinese food to make you feel you're even further east.

The biggest concern I had with Gusti's however, was the lack of amenities they provided. Although a hostel, it was very very basic. The bunk bedrooms had no secondary light, so when walking in it was either too bright or too dark for you or other people who are trying to sleep. There also was no curtains to block the light. Making it really interesting to get up and out in the morning or come in late at night. You also had to be charge for a power adapter to charge any of your devices. I understand that if they made it available for everyone they would have a increase the electricity bill, but I got sick of the nickel in diming throughout all of China and thought it would end in Singapore.

Yet I would still highly recommend this place because of its location and the people running it. Just make sure you bring your own towel and adaptor or are ready to pay for it.

Hello China Baby :)

Nice name btw. Thank you for your kind review. I am glad to know that you have a good stay and would recommend it to your friends and all.

At Gusti, we try to be as simple as possible for the comfort of our guest thats especially resting in the bedrooms. Thats why we have ample spaces for them at every floor for reading, replying emails and so on.

We implemented a refundable deposit of S$5 recently is taken for the adaptors cause some guests forgot to return our adaptors after their use. As for the towels, yes its at a S$3 rental for the whole duration you are there.

We do hope you will be back to stay with us again soon.

Thank you

Cheers;
