“Clean! Nice! Great Value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

I stayed in a single room. Really nice bathroom, so clean and tidy! My work has put me in much worse places in Australia :) Not far to walk to Little India, can leave your luggage locked up at checkout time, helpful staff, nice breakfast/bathroom facilities, short walk to McDonalds, food court, minimart...
Definitely will stay here again if I come back to Singapore.

We arrived around 2 am our room was waiting for us. It was a small clean room with attached bathroom all we really needed. The location is great a short proximity to Orchard road, Downtown and the Raffles Hotel. The staff is knowledgeable about the area and about travel out of Singapore. My wife and I would stay here again and would even stay at the sister Hangout Hotel in Malacca.

Great location, being close to Orchard road and little India. It was perfect for our quick stay in Singapore and for the price, there was no comparison. The staff were very friendly and always helpful when needed.

Room Tip: Be wary of the loud air-conditioning

I stayed here for two nights in March 2013 for a stopover before our next destination, as you know the hotel in Singapore is ridicules expensive these days, so we are so glad to found this nice, clean and pleasant place to stay with our 2yrs old.
Of the best things to mention is the staffs is always friendly and ready to help. The location is also convenient, it's easily accessible by foot, 5mins walk you can get to 24hrs 7 eleven, Ntuc supermarket, Atm etc, everything is close by, you can get a bus from the main street (Selegie Road) just outside 7-eleven to town area, or you can catch the MRT from little India and Dhoby Ghaut which is few minutes walk as well.

If you are planning to visit Malaysia the main bus and taxi station "Rochor"is also nearby which is 25mins walk and 2mins taxi away.

Breakfast is basic, free wifi and 3mins local calls, what more do you want? Clean room, nice bed, good location with a good value.

Stayed here around six times over four years. Always appreciate the friendly staff, comfy beds, clean rooms and great location. In short, it's good value in Singapore. What I don't appreciate is booming voices from adjacent rooms around 7am and slamming doors. This morning I had to go out and politely ask said people to try and be a little quieter in the early hours. I hope this is a one off as we've got used to hangout being a home away from home in Singapore, so hoping the rude fellow guests have an attitude change.

This place is not exactly cheap, but by Singapore standards, it is good value. Dani, the gal who was working the desk when we arrived was FABULOUS. So warm and welcoming and she gave us lots of good, helpful information for sightseeing, eating, etc. The best thing she did was tell us that we could buy our tickets for the Hop On Hop Off bus from the hotel for a huge savings! The hotel is in a nice area with a nearby park, money changers and restaurants, etc. very close, and the metro and Little India a short walk in the other direction. Our room was clean, fairly basic, but had everything we really needed. It would have been nice to have a TV, since we were starved for news, but there is only a TV in the hangout room on floor 2. And people were always watching movies or something when we were in there. There is also free coffee and tea all day long, and several computers to use there, as well. We didn't go up to the top floor where there apparently is a pool and lounge chairs, but a fellow traveler told us it was great up there. The included breakfast was good, and different each day we were there.
Don't miss the free lazer light show every evening at 8 PM and 9:30 PM down at the Marina. The best place to watch it is behind the Marina Bay Sands Center, across the marina from the white lion statue that spits water out.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has a window, because some of them do not. The rooms for singles are all inside...
