Me and my family stayed for 2 nights here. Nice place for some rest. But, check in time till 10pm i think its too short, coz for costumer who got midnight flight it'll be difficult. The lobby until 10pm closed, so i cant get some drink, watching tv, etc. But i think its the policy from hostel, i just say... More

It was my first time in a hostel so probably my expectation were too high. I chosen this hotel for swimming pool and breakfast included..well swimming pool is the public one cross the street (you have to pay entrance) and the breakfast is only bread with jam or cereals. Milk and instant coffee too. The bed has only mattress cover... More

Never Book More Than One Night Till You've Found out what the Place is Really like......this especially applies to this place: the first thing I saw when I arrived was a mouse running round the reception area.Air conditioning is switched OFF between 10am and 7pm.Breakfast facilities : one broken toaster: woefully inadequate. You might want to leave sooner and find... More

For me the daunting thing about a hostel is always the toilets and I was delighted to see they were well above average here! Option of hot and cold shower clean and various toilet cubicles! The rooms were basic and clean but was amongst one of the few affordable places for a backpacker in Singapore! Location was great also as... More

It's a nice and not cheap hostel, breakfast was basic but included in the price. Rooms were not very spacious, but comfortable and the bed didn't have any curtain. This place very quiet and the people so nice. Location is good as well. Quite far from the subway but near busstop. Can walk to Mustafa shopping Center within 3-5 min.... More

Beyond my expectation this hotel is super comfort and clean for cheap price. The staff is very nice but the deposit for key is quite expensive. Location is 10-15 minutes from Farrer Park MRT and Lavender MRT.

This was the worst hostel we ever stayed at in the whole world. It was dirty, noisy and the so called breakfast was a joke!. The bathrooms were disgusting not to mention the toilets. There is no value for money here. Our only recommendation is AVOID!!!!

This hostel is very clean, staff are really friendly and helpful, and the dorms are a decent size. Free breakfast in the morning is lovely and the hostel is in a good location near 2 MRT stations. Nice chill out area too would happily stay again

I have been to numerous Backpackers Inn around Asia, and I can say that this has been the best deal I've got. To start, the warm hospitality of everyone in this inn makes you feel at home. Jenny and Daniel provides the best reception there is. Their friendliness towards their guests makes me regret that I should have stayed more... More
