They made a mistake during the booking process, actually they don't give you any confirmation of your booking on thei website, so they pretended from me to pay for the night i didn't stay there. I booked one from them and had no reply or confirmation, so i booked a second night via hostels.com. At the front desk i was treated like [--]... so i went to Ibis hotel round the corner...

Stayed in a double room which was quite small although clean but has shared facilities. It was noisy at night.Paid approx 80 AUD. Noticed that there were several hotels for this price around the corner so overpriced. Extended our stay and ended up with a twin room with no window and just enough room for a bunk and a couple of bags. Would not recommend for a long stay;.

This hostel was great... good location(1 minute walk to MRT), friendly staff, free WiFi, clean, beds were comfortable. The only problem was the noise level from WITHIN the hostel was awful! I'm only partly referring to fellow guests talking too loud in the halls... as everything is tile and cement, sound travels like I never realized it could before. Someone's shower shoes squeaking down the hallway sounded as if they were right beside me! Doors were impossible to close quietly and sounded as if they were slamming each time they were opened/shut. Basically, I'd recommend the place in a heartbeat... just remember your earplugs! Because if you cannot sleep, no value is a "good" value.

Being a newbie backpacker with my wife, G4 is very, very accessible when going around Singapore. MRT is confusing at first but it's the cheapest way to go around Singapore. We're out most of the time to Esplanade, Merlion, Singapore Flier, Clark Quay (great at night), Orchard road, Sentosa, Sim Lim, Fountain of Wealth, and Night Safari ( you have to ride a bus to go here). Thanks to it's great location very near MRT Little India Station, in fact you can already see G4(the new yellow building) acroos the road. We're stayed at 3rd floor- Queen bed which is really comfortable,what you see in their website is really what you get. We don't know about the noise downstairs coz we're dead tired when we got back around 11-12pm. Clean toilets and shower, breakfast is good- just enough to get you going thru the day. Many restos/ food stalls to choose around so Lunch and Dinner is not a problem. Last but not the least, Staff is of great help especially Jackie who really assisted us- we called her thru the phone when we got lost- (1st time tourist in Singapore! hehe) and very kind enough to tell us which direction and bus to take when we went to Night Safari. Also, i had a nice chat with their staff Eric and Dennis after our breakfast! Hope i remember their names correctly. Again many thanks to Jackie! Thanks G4! We'll recommend it to our friends and definitely stay there again.. Hey guys don't forget to try Durian flavored ice cream :-)

First the good:
*G4 Station is very close to the Little India MRT station so you can get to anywhere in Singapore without any problems at all.
*Very clean bug free rooms and comfortable beds.
*Very frendly and helpfull staff.
*Free internet access from PC's on each floor (although they tend to be quite busy as a result)
*Free inhouse WiFi for your mobile device, just as at reception for the encryption key.

Now for the bad:
*The room we stayed in was a 4 bed mixed dorm, to say it was cosy was an understatement, 4 beds(2 sets of bunks), 4 lockers and just about enough room the open the door between them.
*There are not enough toilets and showers for the number of people staying here, on the ground floor there was at least ten bed spaces plus the people using the bar at the back and there was only one ladies and one gents toilet. (that said they were always clean)
*Only one washer and dryer for the whole building which ment it could take the best part of a morning to get any washing done.
*There is a bar at the back of the building, which is avaiable to both guests and the public. This in itsself was not a problem, but the music played some nights to 04:00hrs and the bass would make the mirror vibrate on the door of the bedroom. (Of course this is not a problem if you are in the bar but if you want to sleep you might want to ask for a room at the top of the building)

Thanks for your first review on Tripadvisor my friend! I'd take note of the noise issue.

In fact, the management has been talking about double glazing the windows and noise filtering so that the rooms upstairs will not be so much affected by noise.

Also I think when you're visiting, the bistro behind had a birthday party event (real unfortunate, but its really a rare case), again this won't be an excuse of us not giving you a good sleep.

Let me know when will you be coming over to Singapore again, I'll make sure you'll have a much more pleasant stay with us :) *And definitely more improvements then*
