Nice hostel, room was a bit strange, other guests staying there are not backpackers! WiFi wouldn't work, kitchen facilities are a bonus! They have one computer in the lobby with internet connection but you only have 30 minutes use! Location is on a main road and not ideal!

one of my friends book the place for me, It was terrible. Normally, it will be separate rooms for male and female and separate floors, but because of the booking was full so they put male guest in female level, which means, they will share the same bathroom and somethings even same room. It was extremely unsafe for girls to... More

This hostel is great, the staff is friendly and the dorms are really nice. It is located in Little India and there's a 7/11 store and a food court a few minutes away. The location is good especially because it's so cheap to take a cab in Singapore.

I actually moved here from another place which was too noisy for me to sleep, and the staff were really nice, (although not too much in that way that lots of SE Asian places are). You get a fair bit of privacy in the dorms as there are curtains across your bed and security provided by a big locker. Wi-fi... More
