Me and my partner booked this hostel online after struggling to find cheap accommodation in Singapore, we were dubious about the stay considering it was the cheapest place we stayed, however when we arrived we loved it. The hostel its self was very clean and kept up to (minus the bathroom on a few occasions but that's expected in a...

My girlfriend and I have been backpacking through asia for some time now, we have been in poor villages and huge cities, but never have we had a hostel where staff came walking in and out of the dorm until 03:00 AM!! Not one night, not two but three nights in a row! I think they were handling check ins...

Spent 3 days 2 nights staying on this hostel for a short vacation to Singapore. It's really good for backpackers and low budget travelers. Sharing rooms with bunk beds. You can go to Mustafa to buy gifts with cheaper price, near City Square mall, little india, 15 mins walk to Lavender station to take MRT (east west) or 5 mins...

Great hostel, friendly staff near bon keng mrt station and 5 minute wall from city square mall and mustafa center but difficult to find halal food nearby so you must walk to little India to find one, all day coffee and tea

I arrived in Singapore extremely late in the evening and was greeted by a lovely Chinese woman who made me feel right at home. Because of how late I arrived, I was unable to exchange my currency into S$'s but she said I could pay her the money tomorrow. She showed me the room and the fee breakfast area. Around...

This hostel was nice near boon keng mrt stasiun, to find cheap food with large portions just go next door (non halal) the place was cozy the staff was friendly, we can get tea or coffee as long you can take, and purifier water so you can cut the cost for buying drinking water,

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...

For me who staying only one night here, it was OK, nothing really special. Upon my arrival, the staff just showed us the wifi code and escort us to the room, nothing really friendly. 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...

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...
