The rooms were clean as well as the shared bathroom. Crew were all courteous and very much helpful. Great and safe location too! Near MRT, Chinatown Bazaars and such. Great even with families with small children. Truly one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in.

Room Tip: Superior and standard rooms aren't so different. We didn't even get to open our window.So un...

i choose to stay here mostly because of the location and also because the hostel, from the facade, lobby, and all of the rooms are well designed. another reason is the cleanliness and also the good facilities. but it would be better if there's a jetspray in the toilet, not just tisuue.

I loved here as the staffs were so friendly, talented and patient especially Safreena and Gin. The rooms and toilets were always in clean condition. I had met with plenty of new friends here!! By the way, it will be much better if there will be a private bathroom provided for each dorm/room.Alternatively, please widen the space of the bathroom so that it will be sufficient for all of the guests. Thanks.

I chose this hostel mostly because of location. I picked one of the rooms with two levels and windows, and was slightly disappointed with what I found compared to the pictures I had seen in the booking sites. Singapore is not exactly known for affordable accomodation, so I guess the price is alright for what it included (air con, good wi-fi, breakfast -consisting of toast, butter, jam, cereal and some fruit-, clean sheets, good matress). The location is excellent, and the staff was really helpful. Toilets and showers are generally clean, and have shampoo and soap.

But... I could't get over the smell. I'm not sure if it was the carpet... it looked clean, but it smelled terrible (wooden or ceramic flooring would make a huge difference). Some parts of the duvet smelled REALLY bad as well.

Overall, the hostel is good. But it is not better than hostels in other (humbler) parts of Asia. The walls could do with some new paint, and the rooms with a deep clean. Also, if going on a weekend, make sure you pack earplugs, the street and corridors can get quite loud.

One of the cheaper options in Singapore, 5minute walk from MRT. Staff are lovely and very professional. They knew most answers to our touristy questions. Rooms are really different but fun. Makes a nice change from the usual. Showers and toilets are spotless and very pleasant. Free Tea and coffee facilities also available, aswell as a good but basic breakfast. Beds clean, safe lock drawer in room. Very quiet as off main street. Really good experience. Nice atmosphere to just chill out in reception too. Sofas and computers free to use.

It was my first time staying at a hostel, and it was a pretty good experience. This hostel is conveniently located in Chinatown where it's close to the MRT, mosque, and food hawker. We stayed in a private 3-person room, the room itself was tiny, but it was ok since we spent most of the days outside anyways. The toilets and bathrooms are tiny as well. The staff try to keep the bathrooms clean, so it depends on who use it if you want to rate the cleanliness. Free tea, coffee, breakfast, and wifi are great as well. Definitely recommended!
