“Great Staycation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

My boyfriend & I managed to secure a deal online via their Facebook page for a Double Plus room - and thats their room with a double bed and a window. The view from the 4/5th floor was great. The location of the hotel was fantastic, with 'direct' access to town (Plaza Singapura - which is linked to Dhoby Ghaut MRT station) if u dont mind walking and climbing stairs. There's a small park right outside Hangout@mt.emily which was lovely. The room itself is relatively clean... the bed was, but I'm not sure about the couch under the window.. there was suspicious looking stains on it. But then again, we slept on the bed so all was good. The AC was superb in the sweltering heat, and there was warm water available for showering. A necessity for me :) the bathroom was clean, not sparkling- but clean enough :)
Breakfast was served in a small in-house restaurant but I'm pretty sure it wasnt cooked by the chef - who is well-known for his asian fusion food. I believe the restaurant operates in the vening for dinner and in the morning, its just a empty space for breakfast. The food served when I was there included fried bee-hoon (which wasnt too tasty), macaroni with a ketchup-like sauce, toast and various spreads, frankfurters and 2/3 variations of cereals. Juice was available and so was coffee & tea. If you're looking for good breakfast nosh, u'll have better luck elsewhere but if ur not fussy, what they serve will satiate u. Singapore is FULL of good, cheap food so u can always grab something else somewhere!

The only downside to my stay was that the person next door to me was practising/rehearsing his singing... and the guy was rather loud... it would go on for at least an hour in the middle of the afternoon. So I hope u guys dont encounter him during ur stay... but with such good reviews for Hangout@mt.emily- who wouldnt return? :D

We had a comfortable stay for two days at the Hangout.

Clean, a decent breakfast, friendly staff - and a very good location. The rooms are maybe a touch too small, but the bathrooms are spacious and you will most likely not spend much time inside your room.

If you consider that Singapore is quite an expensive city, it is an excellent choice if you want to have an accomodation in the city centre.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with windows as some rooms don't have any.

Stayed here for one night but wished I stayed here longer.
The staff are super friendly, the room was very clean, the 'chill out' area on the 2nd floor was good for well chilling with free but good coffee and tea, free internet, books and TV.
Definitely recommend!

I’ll definitely give good recommendations for Hangout @ Mt.Emily :)
I went there because a friend of mine suggested it for the location, as it was close to the MRTs and all of our travel destinations at the time as seen from our maps. And then we double checked for other tourists reviews about the place, as it was going to be my first visit to Singapore.

Turns out that it was a good decision to stay there. The price was quite cheap compared to other hostels, and it was within walking distance to Dhoby Ghaut MRT station. We took the private room with 2 single beds, as i was staying there with my sister. The room was simple (and it’s okay coz we’ll be out all day anyway) and really clean. The bathroom was pretty small but it was clean. The staff was really nice and helpful, they can accommodate for what you need, you just ask them and they’ll help you. There’s a lounge room which has free milk tea, computer room, vending machine, a pool table and even a mini collection of books. The computer room was nice as we can browse the internet before we go to our destination. The breakfast was really nice, it was quite simple but it can energize you enough for the day. And it changes daily too, so we won’t get bored by the same breakfast.

The only downside is we have to go through those long flight of stairs especially when going back to the hostel, so if you are taking an elderly with you better take a taxi instead.

All in all it’s a good stay here, will go here again if we visit Singapore.

Room Tip: Room with windows are preferable, and bring an adapter if you want to charge multiple gadgets.

Stayed here for two nights. The staff are very nice, the rooms are small, no window in ours, clean and big bathroom. No TV in room, which we didn't mind since we were all the time outside enjoying Singapore.
The breakfast is included but not that great.
Good value for money as all accomodation is expensive in Singapore.

I stayed at Hangout last April. The staff were great. The breakfast was enough to give energy so that you can tour the city. Rooms were basic but very clean. Cheap compared to other accommodations in SG. Very easy to find. Close enough walk to Dhoby Ghaut MRT station.

Hangout wa a great start to our south east asia trip. Very clean, modern, friendly staff and absolutely beautiful roof garden!

Rooms are spacious with your own personal locker and cupboard space next to your bed.

Lounge room had bean bags, with films, tv, computers, free wifi and free tea and coffee!

Breakfast was just what we needed, with yummy soft fresh bread, cereal and a different hot dish each day (we espeiallu enjoyes the eggy bread/french toast).

The staff were really helpful abd offered us advice for how to get to kuala lumpur.
