“Great hostel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Everything's good.

Positive:
- Toilets are clean.
- Friendly staff.
- Location's great.

Negative:
- The communal lounge could have been more exciting I guess?
- And some rude guest just snatched the communal laptop for a really really long time.

i spent the last 2 nights in royal hostel on the third floor. the place is clean and comfortable. there is free breakfast with jam, bread, butter and fruit juice, and tea/coffee.

the only complaint, if any, is that the room gets a bit cold at night from the air conditioner, but i am used to sleeping without air-con so it might just be me, i don't know.

i am a meditation practitioner and find it quiet enough for a peaceful stay. there is almost no street noise - you can faintly hear the occasional chattering during the day but it's more of a background atmosphere than any disturbance at all.

all in all, i feel satisfied. would recommend this to all travelers.

Room Tip: the third floor is quieter than the second floor

One of the nicest hostels I've stayed in. And appears to be one of the cheapest in Singapore, so great for budget backpackers. The dorms are spacious & clean, with comfortable bunks and air con. The bathrooms are equally as clean & well maintained. The included breakfast (toast & coffee) is a nice little bonus too :)
Great location. Not far from Chinatown MRT station.
If I come back to Singapore, I'll be staying here again.
