“Nice, perfect, cozy and comfy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012 via mobile

I stayed in a private room for 4 persons. Even though the room is quite small but the 2 buck beds are actually great. The staffs are nice and if u don't mind about shared bath room, then..... This is a recommended for sure

Mercury is merely a short 3min walking distance from Lavender MRT station. You can find a 24-hour restaurant, local bakery shop (discounted price at night with purchase of 3 breads & above) and Antoinette cafe that sells macarons, pastries, cakes etc. We wish to try the desserts but our budget is tight. This hostel comes with all the amenities you need and one can enjoy the sun at roof top while relaxing in the jacuzzi.

The Individual cupboard comes with a special magnetic key tag scan lock, I think it's pretty cool :) Generally a good and affordable place to stay.

Budget accommodation with 5-star service and facilities! Friendly and kind staffs, clean room and bathroom, comfortable bed, laptop with wifi and best of all roof top jacuzzi. The hostel is near to Lavender MRT station which is just 2 stations away from city center. Highly recommended if you're looking for a budget accommodation in Singapore. Definitely would stay again on next visit!!

First, the gorgeous lady at front desk is so nice. she put us in 2nd floor, the hostel atmosphere was friendly, comfort and bright. The hostel is so amazingly clean and comfort, especially the bed is star hotel quality. me and my husband with my sister and best friend stay at private square room, room size was a bit small for four person who carry a baggage, but it's ok.

The locker was awesome, the art and heading lamp of our room look really nice. Too bad i'm too tired to climb up and having jacuzzi time, but i think the jacuzzi look nice up there.

The room was good, but we can hear next door having noisy laugh and party, someone in our right room knock my door and ask me to lower our voice, but i said that the noisy voice come from our left door. so we decided to ask them politely about their noise.thankfully they understand.

The bathroom with attach shower and toilet sanitary was good and clean. there's two mirror, sink, hairdryer and water kettle. There's five bathroom in 2nd floor : 3 shower box, and 2 toilet (one toilet had an attach shower).

only take 1-2 minute to catch Lavender MRT, bus stop and foodcourt (there's so many certified of halal food). i suggest to try 'Ayam Bakar set' at kopitiam, indonesian booth, taste so great and the price was so so. only take a few minutes to BUGIS by MRT.

such a Great place to stay in budget.

we fall in love to this hostel, definitely will come back to stay! <333

We stayed here for one night. the room was excellent, clean and a comfy bed.. the roof top garden and spa area are really nice. they are renovating at the moment which we already knew when we booked but that did not interfere with us. Friendly helpful staff. would definitely stay again. Only a 5 minute walk to catch the bus into Malaysia.

Very nice place. The rooms are not so big, but it works and there are lockers and several power plugs. The beds are comfortable and the location is quiet. However, the walls are quite thin so you can hope next door is not having a party if you want to sleep.

The manager is nice and very helpful.
The showers are okay, but not always as clean as you would like it to be.

Should I come back to Singapore, I will come back as the hostel is very good value for money.
