The staff here are so lovely and helpful. The dorms are clean, comfortable and cool. Really good location right by Clarke quay (nightlife/shopping area). Free computers to use in the common area along with free coffee and toast to start off your day! Would definitely recommend to any backpackers heading to Singapore.

The stairs were so steep that I have a hard time reaching the reception and even my dorm room. In the dorm, the floor space was not that spacious as compared with other hostel. The amenities were not... More

My main reason to book this hostel was, Location. At Clarke Quay MRT. You will be at Central Mall, just across the road with bridge or walking, and then walk about 80 meters with the same flow with the cars. You will see Hong Kong Street, turn left and you will find the hostel. I arrive around 11.30PM then we... More

The location is perfect, close to some attraction in a walking distance. The hotel is clean, wifi connection is ok, if in the room is slow then in the alley is much faster, and if you forgot your gadget PC in each floor is available. In the pantry you can make your own breakfast and coffee or teas and don't... More
