It's bare bones. There are lockers, but my stuff didn't fit, so I left it under the bed. I wasn't ever concerned about theft. Breakfast is available, and it's bare bones, too. Just bread and butter, peanut butter, nutella, and a few jams. There are three communal showers and three communal toilets. I never had to wait too long to...

Great hostel! The location is perfect, close to everything. Friendly staff. No problems with the plumbing, hot water&shower&toilet everything is fine. Take extra 20sing $ (such as deposit), but then return with eviction. Call a taxi, tell you where to go and etc. City maps and tours also have discounts. Curtains on the beds, and the light and socket too....

the location is perfect so you can easily to the sights of singapore. The stuff is super friendly, you have free breakfast that encludes toast nutella peanut butter and jam. The beds are ok, you have lockers. There weren't many people in the hostel because it's a very small one, but I met lovely people there!

Location is the best, rooms are clean, staffs are really friendly and helpful. The best thing abt this hostel is the dinning room where you can find a bookshelf, a guitar and an ukulele, which makes me feel like home whenever I'm there :) This was my 2nd stay and surely I will come back.
