“Not is a backpacker”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

I stayed for 2 nights. Private room very poor for the price. Dirty, small, no window and "wall paper". Sure never come back. Service didn't exist. The second night 4 girls start to cook at 4 a.m for 1 hour and anybody said nothing....

Booked the deluxe room to be private. They put me in the 4th floor, which was quite tiring because of no elevators and I happened to bring quite a lot of luggage. The other day someone told me that the 3rd floor was the renovated one, but they did not give me that room. Quite disappointing to know that that floor was not fully occupied. Location is very good, 5 min to MRT CQ.

This place is good for sleeping only.

Wonderful staff who are quite engaging. They were friendly and very accommodating.

When we arrived, I went to check the bathrooms as we had a shared bathroom arrangement. To put it accurately, I was afraid to use it - dirty walls, dirty floors, dirty sink. But to be fair, the afternoon we returned back from our city tour, it was all clean. Perhaps the users before us were just not particular about cleanliness(?). I'd actually give it a higher cleanliness rating if the mirrors and trash bins were shiny like the cleaned sinks and showers but they weren't. With that, I guess my only major complain would be the bedroom - the bed in particular. For someone who had back problems like me, it was a nightmare. The carpet wasn't vacuumed thoroughly too.

For a private room located in the city center, it was value for money. If budget were a big issue, I'd stay here again. Not my top choice but still something to consider for those traveling on a budget.

I've stayed there for 2 weeks & enjoyed the pleasant service. Everything was clean, cool, calm & convenient. The hotel is located in the center of the city & just 5 minutes walk to S'pore's night spot area(Clarke Quay), MRT station & shopping malls. The staff was very friendly & helpful. The rooms are comfortable, the beds are nice & comfy too, the hostel equiped with CCTV (24 hours), toilets are clean & spacious, and above all the prices are very affordable compare to other hostels.

Me and my friends enjoyed our 3-bedroom room. Everything was clean, convinient.
The hotel is located almost in the center, close to subway and shopping mall, stuff is very friendly and supportive. Guys on the reception listen quiet cool Indian music all the time :)
There is a kitchen on every store so you can enjoy breakfast in calm atmosphere.

completely hated this "hostel". the room was smaller than a prison cell... the springs in the matress woke me up all night and i had to put the pillow outside of the room due to its stench of urine...

bathrooms were disgusting.... service was crap....

i booked 3 nights and paid 3 nights... checked out after the first night due to the condition of the place. they couldnt even give me a refund on the last 2 nights...

i would rather sleep on a park bench then go to this hostel again.

Room Tip: dont book here
