Very clean budget hostel. Close to MRT and Chinatown shopping area. Situated at level 2 of residence apartmet. Highly recommended despite only one sharing toilet between all dorm and single room. Food court downstairs, you may take your meal anytime. Karen the staff is very helpful. Andrew, the owner, very friendly too.

It's a small hostel on the edge of chinatown. 2 subway and several bus stations close by. I stayed there 3 nights and had a great time! Very nice staff, they go out of their way to help you! The rooms are very clean and have air conditioning. The bath is quite small and a little cramped and the breakfast only consists of toast and a glas of marmalade. But there are lots of good and cheap places to eat in the area.

I stayed five nights and enjoyed it. Air-conditioning was great! Security was good; everyone had a small locker for valuables. The front door was always locked. The owner Andrew was very friendly and helpful and sat outside on the balcony (the only common area) with the guests, giving tips and telling and listening to anecdotes. The whole atmosphere was friendly and I made friends with the people in my room. The rooms (there were two 10-bed dorms at the time) may be small, but considering the price, I thought it was enough (it's Singapore after all, not Malaysia). The breakfast wasn't great, but at least I could get some instant tea in the mornings.
