ABC Hostel
Ranked #280 of 319 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

I stayed for 5 days and chose the private one for around 60$ something per night *totally forgot bout the price.* there's a shower inside my room but no toilet. The room is for 2 - 3 people.
Actually, I'd say I'm really satisfied with the location. It's near to MRT, Raffles hospital, sevel...and some malls. That's it.
but the hostel itself ain't really comfortable. There's some marks on the wall and I believe it's kind of fungus... :( The room has no window so u can imagine how fusty it is. There's a shower room inside but no window. Omg.
the breakfast is okay. But don't u ever try to have ur meal in the back side of the hostel. You'd find rats watching you everywhere... that's creepy. So I suggest u to have ur meal in the kitchen no matter what.
But the receptionist was quite nice. I hardly understand singlish at the first time. But they kindly gave me all the info I needed. So, if u looking for a place to (just) fall asleep.. this place is recommended ... u should go have fun out there by the time u woke up. But if u looking for comfy place.. to relax or whatever. .. no no for this hostel

Felt compelled to inform other travellers… The reception are rude and unhelpful, you won't get any useful information from them. Like others have said, the rooms are occupied by tenants with all their rubbish everywhere, looks like a storage room. The bed was ok, but everything else is a nightmare. The internet is bad, the kitchen is far beyond bad - it's outside on a dirty balcony, with old computers as seats. There are people washing and brushing their teeth in this tiny little kitchen, as well as other people sitting around breathing smoke all over the food.

I have been travelling for over a year so far and so these complaints are not from the standard fool who booked a hostel expecting a hotel.

Pay an extra $2 and stay next door, OR put in a bit more money and go somewhere else.

Poorly managed, POOR breakfast, very bad value for money.

The location is quite strategic from Bugis MRT and two bus stops. It's also near Kampong Glam and situated like an old place, with lots of heritage buildings, but lively at night from bar and cafe nearby.
I stayed with 9 friends, all girls, in ten-beds dorm for three days. We used mixed dorm but booked the room. The price is considerably cheap, booking via email, downpayment 50%, deposit s$10 for room keys, towel, and blanket that will be refunded when check out.
The service was good, simple breakfast (bread with jam) on time, all facilities in web can be used well, and it had very nice ambience.
Mustafa center is in walking distance, seven eleven less than 5 minutes, around 7 minutes to bugis junction and bugis street.
Lots of Indonesian stayed here. The staffs are also very nice. I think I will come back soon :)

I have been staying here twice. We have private room with sharing bathroom. I have good experience staying here. The location is great, just walked for about 7 minutes, you will find Bugis station. And bus station is right in front of this hostel. There are seven eleven only 50 meters away and Nasi Padang only about 75 meters away. The bathroom is quite clean, the staff is so nice. It was a good experience staying in ABC Hostel.

Room Tip: Corner room is larger

I don't really think that this place is a hostel, since when I stay there, there was some Singaporean that stay at this hostel for 1 month or more.It looks like a student's dormitory.
I was staying at the female dormitory, but unfortunately the room already occupied by 2 Singaporean that have stayed there for a month or more, so when I arrived there the room was full of that 2 people's things. They used all of the lockers and almost all of the room space. One of them was not friendly too.

Room Tip: If you still want to stay at this hostel, choose the private room with shower room inside, because t...

when arrived in this hostel, warm welcome from the receptionist. But the owner not that friendly. They got angry with the aircon-man who repair the aircon in my room, they screaming and using bad words. How they talk just makes me shock. The washing machine cannot be used by customers.
