“Good value for money and central location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

It is difficult to find affordable accommodation in Singapore. I have stayed here many times and will stay here again. The rooms are small but clean. The location is perfect for me - at the bottom of Orchard Road and 20 or so minutes walk from China Town. The staff are always pleasant. The breakfast caters for many cultures and is fine.

Very well located central to public transport, close by to shopping and dining. Family of 4 on stop over, breakfast included in Tariffe was adequate. Only improvement I can suggest would be to have a guest laundry available for guest use. All our luggage was dripping wet on arrival could have used laundry service but expensive (4 -5 per item ) and also 50% surcharge outside of business hours ( we arrived at midnight). Would stay here again as the location is superb.

I stayed here with my 2 sons aged 6 and 13 for 7 nights. The main appeal was the price and the location. The room, while clean, was very tired looking and the facilities are extremely basic. There are none of the 'nicetites' you might normally expect like hand towels, face washers, a shelf in the bathroom for your toiletries, tea or coffee in your room or even decent TV channels. The reception staff have poor customer service skills and are unable to answer even basic questions like "Where is the closest Chemist?" The only tourist information provided is a mass print map of Singapore. There are plenty of hotels nearby, next time I will pay more for a higher level of comfort, especially if I am traveling with kids.

I feel comfortable and pleasant in staying in YMCA International House, the rate is reasonable in the high cost of Singapore hotel. The place of hotel is convenient to MRT and easy to get to those famous landmark as Dhoby Ghaut is interchange of MRT station. The hotel amenities, free WIFI and buffet breakfast is simple but already enough. The room is a little bit small but is clean enough! The toilet is spacious.

Recommendation is may be a box of tissue can be placed in the room desk.

You you be hard pressed to find better located accommodation; a five minute walk to the MRT and shopping plazas .Simple rooms, yet adequately comfortable. Complementary Bottles of water are much appreciated when travelling around the city and country. A good breakfast that covers a simple mix of Chinese & Western tastes. It's not a huge buffet, but the YMCA is not targeted for resort style seekers; yet our family were never short of being sufficiently satisfied with breakfast. The YMCA is targeted for folk who want a good rest, a great tasting simple yet sufficient breakfast to kick start the day into exploring and experiencing Singapore. There's a good pool on the roof for those who enjoy a swim.

Staff were friendly and helpful. Have stayed multiple times over the past 20 years, and each time has been delightful. Perhaps the YMCA can introduce a frequent visitors programme!

Room Tip: Family rooms are for 2 children. If you have 3, be prepared to sleep with one of them.

The location of the hotel is excellent. It is Couple of minutes walking distance from the MRT station and in the locality where most corporate offices are. It is also close to the shopping area with lots of options for eating as well. The rooms are small but clean. The breakfast is well laid out. It is reasonably priced by Singapore Standards.
