Myself and my girlfriend stayed here in one of the private rooms for 3 nights. It ended up being comparable to dorms in most places (it was 50SGD per night for both of us) for a room to ourselves and sharing a bathroom with only one other room. The room itself was very basic, just a bed and a basin but that's all you really need I guess!
The hostel puts out brekky every morning, fruits, toast and eggs which you cook yourself downstairs in the beer garden of the pub. The pub is pretty good value for Singapore, if you stay there you can get a beer or jamjar (guaranteed hangover, its just a glass of sugary alcohol) for 5SGD. They have live music, but its only till about 12-1 most nights, and breakfast isnt till 9:30 so there's plenty of time for beauty sleep.
Its close to a really boss food center in Little India where you can get a great meal for about 3 dollars, and while we were there it seemed like it was full of actual backpackers, some hostels in Singapore seem to be full of business people and families, so the atmosphere is great. The staff are all pretty friendly too, it seems like there are about 500 people who work there but they are all nice! Oh, and on Sundays you can get an 8SGD pint of beer and you get a free steak sandwich with every one you buy! I wish we could have stayed for that but we had to fly out :(
I would highly recommend this place if you like to meet and talk to people and don't need the flashiest most high tech room. If you need somewhere that is a sterile place to be alone in peace and quiet I think there are plenty of those as well in Singapore!
