Hostel is strategically located. About 5 mins walk from Bugis MRT station. Rooms are comfy with wooden bed frame which I love cause it does not creak like the metal ones. Hostel has a social room with games, PS3, book exchange, TV with movies, two apple computers and fast wifi available. Breakfast items and instant noodle, coffee and tea available throughout the day. Very helpful and friendly staff. Middle eastern food are easily available everywhere within 3 minutes walk radius around the hostel. Bugis shopping area about 15 minutes walk away.
Only 2 things bothered me and that's the hostel has only 2 adjoining shower and wc on each floor to be shared by 20 people when the hostel is full. The middle Eastern restaurant across the street from the hostel opens till 3 to 4 am in the morning so you can hear music and people talking or shouting when they get drunk. But to the credit of the hostel, they provide free ear plugs to give you a good night's sleep.
Overall I am happy with my stay and will be back again.
