I have been to many hostels on my travels to Singapore and this is by far the best Hostel I have been to and I cannot recommend it enough. Located on one of the coolest areas in the heart of singapore 'Arab Street' which has a chilled out relaxed ambience filled of rows of people smoking Shisha, trendy restaurants and bars(with the occasional belly dancers) which gives a middle eastern vibe.
From the moment when I first arrived, I was greeted by the friendly stuff who were kind enough to help with my luggage and recommend all the must do things in Singapore. They also sell discounted tickets to most places which is a plus.
The social rooftop with a breathtaking view of the city is the best part of this hostel for me. It is a great place to meet other travellers and great for socialising! There is also a lounge room with a tv incase you want to chill and watch a movie. That and the fact that they are kind enough to provide all day breakfast items inclusive of bread, tea , coffee, cereal, milk and spreads like Nutella!! this is quite a treat and I guarantee you, you will not find this in any other hostel. The bathrooms are newly renovated and soap provided. clean rooms with free lockers provided!
So far the best hostel experience in Singapore for me :)
