A clean and cosy place to stay. Immerse in the real 'SINGAPORE CULTURE' atmosphere.
i have stayed 5 hostel in singapore, this is the best among all of them. Suprisingly the free breakfast provided is better than the imagination, not only just coffee and tea; but also bread with variety of jam can be chosen.
Good location which just nearby the MRT and variety of Singapore local foods stall along the hostel street.
I really enjoy to stay overthere during singapore!

Absolulety fantastic hostel! Duvet covers and white clean sheets! Dorms clean and friendly staff, the bathrooms are clean too! Easy to get too and in a good area to get to everything else! Best hostel iv stayed in on my travels and looks like the cheapest in Singapore! If you've got three nights stay for 3! Amazing air in and wifi which are so important for a traveller! English plugs only!

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.
