Upon our arrival in Singapore on the first day when we had no idea where to hang out, they gave us great recommendations of places to visit. Air conditioning was a bit too cold in the room, but you can ask for more blanket. better than too hot.

This place is clean, yes. But staying here is more about doing everything right, regardless of whether you a happy camper or not. They have lots of information about the local sights and maps and location is good. However, I wasn't very happy with the attitude of the male staff member. He actually went into the room and removed my... More

The malaysia girl is hard working and keeps all the public areas clean & tidy. Hostel is  just 5 min walk to Clarke Quay MRT. It is convenient to go Chinatown & Sentosa. WIFI & computer are good. It will be good to put an air purifier, a small table & rubbish trash in the room.
