I camped out here for 10 nights while I had some work to do in Singapore. It was a great value stay. The hostel is clean and well air-conditioned inside the rooms, and I really like the pod system. They're like bunk beds with walls, and I had a great unit in the corner where I could hide in every night. Each unit comes with a locker under the bottom bunk, but since I had two pieces, I just left one next to my bed, as did a lot of others in my room. Bathrooms are communal, but I never ran into any crowding problems (some showers would get clogged once in a while, though). Internet is fast. There is a communal kitchen as well with cereal, toast and fruit for breakfast. The staff is very friendly and also well-responsive to emails.
Location-wise, it's in the heart of Chinatown, so very lively place with lots of food options and a nightmarket. It's very close to one subway line and several bus stops. You can buy discount tickets to some attractions at the front desk, but you need to buy it a day in advance.
