“Above average, reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Nice little hostel, pretty easy to find from the metro station - about a 10 min walk
Dorms are compact, but clean. Each bed has a security locker just outside the door to the dorm - padlocks and keys ate provided at reception, free of charge.
The downstairs bathroom is clean and functional, though a little small.
The common area is a raised platform with a few beanbags and a table, together with a few higher tables and tall stools. It feels fairly comfortable and sociable, although there are quite a few people sitting around on laptops/iPads and not talking much!
There are a few beers available from reception for 5SGD - not a bad price for Singapore.
Wifi is available throughout the building at no cost. There are also a few computers in the common room for general use.
The whole place feels quite secure - you are given an entry pass for the front door on arrival (you need to pay a deposit).

the room is good and quite clean. also the joint bathroom is clean. breakfast is pretty basic, bread, jam, egg, coffee and tea. the neighborhood is pretty save, but its very very crowded on the weekend. the MRT station about 10 minutes walk. you can get a discount to many places in singapore such as universal studio and bus discount to KL. the host is pretty helpful. overall its a nice hostel.

If you're looking to meet people, drink and sleep a little then this is the place to stay. Located close enough to Bugis and Little India station, I'd recommend if you're arriving late to take the airport shuttle that'll stop at the front door. I stayed in the 8 bed dorm for four nights. It was spacious and cleaned daily. The atmosphere was very relaxed; the common area was never lacking company even when WIFI is readily available in the rooms. Downsides were the flapping doors so keep your bags locked when you head out! Or lockers are available for a small fee which I would recommend for the valuables! The showers were OK, not cleaned at the crack of dawn but passable by evening time. I would stay here again purely for the great atmosphere.

This is an excellent Backpacker's Hostel. 10 minutes walk from Little India MRT. Friendly, helpful staff, spotless dorms, showers and toilets, free tea and coffee, free internet access, a laundry service. S$20 gives you a clean dorm bed with breakfast included in the price. Great value for money.

An interesting place to stay!

Room of 8 which was ok except it had no window!!! Smelt terrible!! No clean air circulating! God awful room! If you want s room here avoid the downstairs, rooms upstairs are better!!

The bathroom was disgusting! We started showering at the local beach because it was so bad!! Toilets dripped dirty water from pipes!!

I choose this hostel because the review told that it's good location. But actually it is far from MTR around 1km. My mom is 60 years old. We have to use taxi to go back to hotel. Moreover, when i stayed there, i found the fight of drunk people in front of the hotel. Although reception lock the main gate immediately, I'm still so scared.

Good Service,
Good Breakfast,
Few Toilet and Bathroom, all toilets(3 rooms in my floor) occupied so often

We stayed at a quad room in Dunlop St. for the 3 of us.
Walking to the MRT station (Bugis or Little India) was under 15 minutes.
Food was readily available in the vicinity.
The the mosque.
The breakfast was decent.
While the staffs were kind enough regarding services, the hotel only provides very small, extremely worn out thin towel.. :(

But if you are after a cheap room at a convenient location, I would recommend this place.

Room Tip: stay at the Dunlop Street.
