First of all, check in/out is not 24 hours. It's available from 8am to 9pm. So if you arrive after 9pm or before 8am, you need to call the owner to tell you that you're arrived. That's what we did when we arrived at 10.30 pm. We called dennis and he already left the key at reception desk, also he... More

The room very basic, there was 2 bunk-bed in my small room, the base bed was on the floor, very low, and there is not so... More

Location wise this place is good. The nearest metro station is a 5-10 minute walk, while over the road you've got a range of good restaurants and street food heading into the Little India area. For the three nights we stayed we were spoiled for choice of nearby restaurants. The dorm rooms are pretty bleak. Beds are fine and the... More

My honest opinion, location was ok, 10min walk from the metro. Customer service was good.The dorm of 12 was a huge room. The bed was hard,one ladder for everyone to climb to top bunker,Air condition and small lockers in the room. Breakfast included with a big dinning table. WiFi was fast. Only 2 toilets and 2 showers for entire place... More

I've stayed at this hostel both times visiting Singapore. The staff are very hospitable, and the hostel itself has a very chill and welcoming vibe, making it easy to meet fellow travellers if you're travelling alone.

We only stayed for one night in Singapore and this one was a really good price! The rooms are spacious and clean with good facilities and the toilets are good too. Free breakfast is awesome - they have peanut butter AND Nutella - they also gave us a great route to see Singapore in one day!

The hostel is OK if you are looking some places to sleep in Singapore. Clean bed, bathroom, and safe enough for you and your belongings. 300 meters to nearest MRT and the local food court. But the hostel is not in almost travel map...
