This was the cheapest hotel we could find online. The facilities were great. The location was good, comfortable beds, good shower, well managed and clean and also good value. this place is definitely recommended for low budget travelers.

I would recommend this hostel to anyone who visits SG.
The location is perfect, the beds are comfortable and the owner Andrew is very nice. The hostel even has a working AC and the shower is the best I I've seen this month ;)

For backpackers this is the ideal place to stay.

The one hostel is in Chinatown the other one which has the same name (same owner) is just a few waking minutes away.
The hostel itself is clean and easy.
For travellers who want to live lowbudged or don't need much extras it's totally enough and the price is the best one you'll get in ttown.
The owner is very nice and all the time very friendly.

top location, very friendly and helpful staff incl mr. andrew (owner), clean rooms and toilet even the bathroom is quite tiny, lockers available for free (just use your own padlock), curtains divide the dormitory to keep disturbance little, wifi works quite good in the room as well as at the sitting area n front of the hostel, basic breakfast (toast, jam, coffee, tea) is provided in an allocated area, best price-performance-ratio for budget travelers in singapore....i use it on every occasion
i'm in singapore (app 4x per year)...outram park mrt is app 5 min walk away and probably the best small food court (called k88 providing laksa, all chinese food, thai food and sausages on an austrian wuerstelstand too) in chinatown just downstairs the hostel

Nice hostel but very basic and can be load if there are lots of people. The breakfast and free wifi were good. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location near Chinatown and the MRT was very convenient and everything was a short walk away.

Just only cheap hostel with supreme location next to outrampark MRT 2-5 min walkaway.

I stay on a share room for 10 ppl. The sheet just so so. The toilet was very small, but still ok for me. But the cleanliness of the toilet was so bad.

Breakfast just so so, but they have their own restaurant for breakfast.
