“Not worth it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Booked a double room for one night, but when we checked in, we were given a five-bed dorm room right beside the shared bathroom on the second floor. I think they have another building for private rooms, but we stayed at the main building on Dunlop St. Short distance from Little India MRT. As expected, it was noisy most of the time. Our room was clean and the airconditioner worked fine. The shared bathroom could've been cleaner. It was a cramped place, and the lounge was small. Didn't get to try the free breakfast. For $29/night, you'd be better off elsewhere.

a lying, cheating dump of a business.

they show double rooms as having an individual double bed with quilt and pillows, ambient lamps and couch, in reality ---
we got walked down 3 backstreets away from the main building, to another building in scary dangerous back alley, the room we were given was smaller than my bathroom at home, with the *tri bunk* (not double room as promised) bed almost hitting door. the bed was firm and you can feel the wire base through the 'mattress'. the pillows are so old, thin, worn out.
shower has nowhere to sit your things, basically a stall only.

we were handed thread bare towels to sleep with - 1 per person - in what was meant to be a double 'presidential' room for a couple. the wifi obviously didnt work as it wasnt anywhere near the hostel. the staff ignored our presence when we first walked into reception room even though no1 else was around.

breakfast is included but looks fit for pigs, not even dogs.

after reading other reviews,which i regret not reading beforehand, the place ought to be shut down.

Room Tip: dont degrade yourself by staying in this dump.

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!!
