3 minutes walk to the nearest bus station and 10 minutes walk to Lavender MRT station. The MRT (green line) goes directly from/to the airport. Rooms are using RFID locks. Free breakfast and hi-speed wifi connection.

This is a cute little hostel just 3 blocks from a train station (that runs directly to and from the airport) and in a quiet location. The train station has restaurants and cafes, and there are mini marts close by as well.

The rooms were super clean and the hostel seemed well-organized with lockers to store bags in. It also has an outdoor area and the wifi is excellent. A basic breakfast is included. Staff are great, I only stayed one night and they referred to me by name - excellent customer service!
A pretty short walk to the Arab quarter, where there are heaps of bars and restaurants. You can catch trains from the hostel to all the main attractions, and staff seem happy to help with your plans. Definitely not a party hostel, and great for solo travellers.

Stayed here because it was cheap and other places were full. So we were abit dubious arriving. A five minute walk from Lavender MRT and another five to Little India.

The staff are lovely....genuinely helpful. Breakfast is toast and spreads, tea and coffee all day. Two laptops free to use and excellent WiFi in all areas....for free.

The rooms are clean with comfy wooden bunks and decent pillows. There are two loos and three showers, on the floor we stayed on.

TV and books too.

All in all excellent value for money, a lovely hostel.

Room Tip: La habitación era prolija, los baños normales y la zona es un poco ruidosa.
