“Ok if on a budget. Ok room - grubby/awful toilet/shower”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2010

We booked this place on Hostelworld and price-wise it was by far the cheapest place to stay in Singapore. Good location, halfway between airport and city centre and only a short distance from the MRT station. Mr Lee the owner/manager was very helpful and gave easy to follow directions. The room consisted of a bunkbed, tv and aircon which was suitable for us as backpackers on a budget. Free internet, free washing machine and free towels were a huge bonus too. The toilets/showers were very grubby and were some of the worst we'd seen in south east asia. I even had a fight with a very large cockroache who decided to inhabit one of the shower/toilets and wouldn't leave without physical force. Whilst we were there, there seemed to be permanet residents in some other rooms who never cleaned up after themselves thus making the place scruffy and dirty. With a few simple changes and the showers/toilets completely rennovated this place would be a lot nicer place to stay.

i booked this place via hostelworld.. booking was okay..there are few ways to get to this place as suggested by the website.. however, from Kembangan MRT station, it is not 10-15minutes walk.. its bit more than that... and if u have many luggage, do not walk.. it is quite a distance into the housing area.. take bus 32 when you see a bus stop and stop right at 7-eleven or caltex (under renovation)..

The rooms are quite clean, with a mirror and small tv.. though the room we got smelled of ciggarrete.. free internet service is provided.. towels are provided.. but the toilets are bit dirty.. the toilet and shower are the same, so it can be quite dirty at times.. the customer service personnel, Mr Lee was very helpful and nice..

its a very quaint, small place... d entrance may look bit dodgy but it is ok inside.... if u are on a tight budget, this place can be considered... and if u also don;t mind the walking...
