“Avoid!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

An interesting place to stay!

Room of 8 which was ok except it had no window!!! Smelt terrible!! No clean air circulating! God awful room! If you want s room here avoid the downstairs, rooms upstairs are better!!

The bathroom was disgusting! We started showering at the local beach because it was so bad!! Toilets dripped dirty water from pipes!!

I choose this hostel because the review told that it's good location. But actually it is far from MTR around 1km. My mom is 60 years old. We have to use taxi to go back to hotel. Moreover, when i stayed there, i found the fight of drunk people in front of the hotel. Although reception lock the main gate immediately, I'm still so scared.

Good Service,
Good Breakfast,
Few Toilet and Bathroom, all toilets(3 rooms in my floor) occupied so often

We stayed at a quad room in Dunlop St. for the 3 of us.
Walking to the MRT station (Bugis or Little India) was under 15 minutes.
Food was readily available in the vicinity.
The the mosque.
The breakfast was decent.
While the staffs were kind enough regarding services, the hotel only provides very small, extremely worn out thin towel.. :(

But if you are after a cheap room at a convenient location, I would recommend this place.

Room Tip: stay at the Dunlop Street.

We stayed one night and moved to another hostel. The bathrooms weren't that bad when we stayed and our room had a small window which I don't think others did. It was expensive and the internet only worked downstairs as we were sent to the other location. Overall a pretty dead atmosphere and quite a generic place to stay. Its location in Little India was good though for cheap tasty food. Either spend the same amount of money and stay somewhere better or check out Ali's nest, its cheaper.

be aware that if you get a room in the other building (they have a "main" building and the "other" one) there is NO internet and NO facilities other than run down toilettes and rooms. Showers are in need of a big clean up and fixing as all shower head do not stay in place on the wall fixing so you have to keep it in your hand in order to wash up the shampoo and soap. Staff and website do not mention this but still have to pay the full price!!

During my vacation in S'pore, I had the chance to stay in this young and dynamic hostel!
It is located in the Little India area in S'pore, but its location is just a few steps far from the MRT and it is well-linked to the Int'l Airport by Train and buses.
The hostel is quite small (just 2 floors) but definitely clean, modern, welcoming and staff is polite and well-trained; rooms are large and bathrooms are really clean, large and modern.
During my stay at the InnCrowd I had the pleasure to enjoy a full-day tour provide by the hostel with the best tour guide in S'pore, Michael!!!
Really reccomended!!!!

I had high hopes for this hostel, the website is a treasure trove of information and booking via email was efficient and helpful. I was not overly impressed when I first arrived and then even less so when I was told I would be staying in the second location round the corner (the walk feels a lot longer with all your luggage and men eying you up constatly) and that my single room was up 2 large flights of stairs. The room was like a red and orange prison cell with only a small window in the ceiling. There is a very large TV but this only works when used in conjunction with the DVD player. In fairness the room was a decent size and the AC is good. The 3 showers and 2 toilets (if you have long legs you wont be able to fit in here) were very basic and pretty gross, they are mixed sex. Wifi is free but there is no access in the second building. The breakfast, served in the main building, is basic but decent and you can have as much as you want as well as tea and coffe 24 hours a day (no milk provided). As a single female traveller I disliked the location, Little India, which is full of migrant workers who are not ashamed of open staring and generally making you feel uncomfortable, the weekends are 10 times worse. Basically if you have to stay here then ask to be housed in the main building. I believe they should pre-warn travellers that they will be shoved in a second-rate building round the corner and maybe offer a discounted price.

Room Tip: Ask to be housed in the main building.
