Stayed for 3 nights with my wife and son in a double plus room. The room and toilet are clean and more spacious than other hotel rooms. Air conditioning was excellent with adjustable temperature control. The free breakfast was ok but it can be improved by serving more variety of food. It is near Little India MRT station but after touring Singapore it was a struggle negotiating the uphill road going back to the hostel especially for someone with weak knees. One option is to ride the taxi but for someone on a budget that is a costly alternative. Other than this issue I highly recommend staying in this hostel.

Stayed for 2 nights in a mixed 10 bed dorm. Was probably the best hostel I have ever stayed in, but also the most expensive. That's why I had to leave after 2 nights. However, they have proper mattresses, lockers, everything seems to be very clean and well taken care of and the breakfast is just delicious.

In a city full of expensive accommodation this place is a gem. Reasonable prices, simple but decent, clean rooms and friendly service. Located a short walk from the Little India MRT station and set in a quiet neighborhood near a park its a perfect place to stay with easy access to everything yet away from the main road and city center. Nice rooftop deck thats great to relax in the evenings, and good communal areas and lounges provide a chance to interact with other travelers. Breakfast is very basic but not a major issue. Stayed in the hotel but they also have a cheaper hostel option. Would book again.

The room was very clean. We stayed totally 3 nights in a double plus room.

Some taxi drivers don't know this place. Either request to use GPS or tell them to come to Sophia Road -> Wilkie Road ->Upper Wilkie Road.

From Hangout to Zoo will cost around SGD 20 - 22 ( taxi ). To Sentosa Island cost around SGD 13.

There are only 2 electric sockets in room. (for table lamps)

Staffs are very very friendly and helpful.

We will surely come back to Hangout if visit to Singapore.

Room Tip: If you need to charge your laptop and use table lamp at the same time, you may need to use an adapte...

We arrived by mrt and taxi, excited to view this city in this hostel so easily with no hassles. The staff greeted us with a smile and directed us to our room. Our quadruple room was clean with 4 clean beds, a writing table with a lamp, a bedside table with a lamp and 4 complimentary bottled water, a clean bathroom, with hot and cold shower, liquid soap and shampoo in a dispenser, 4 clean towels and a rag, and a suffice clothes hanger. I just hoped they gave toothbrushes and toothpaste too. Most of all , the hotel staff were friendly and approachable. The buffet breakfast was something to look forward as they changed a part of the menu daily. If we wanted to go to orchard or any part of the acity, we just walked to its nearest mrt station, dhobi gaut in plaza singapura. It is also near the cinema, the cathay, where we watched a movie. The hostel's location makes singapore accessible to any place you want to go. Its neighbouring area is very decent so it is safe even to walk back at night. They have backdoor stairs that led to a shortcut to the downtown area. I may say that we had a safe, clean and friendly place to stay in singapore and the price was just right.

This was a lovely clean hostel, the garden on the roof is a must visit as the views are spectacular and the setting tranquil, the staff are very helpful and allowed us to utilise the facilities while we waited for our late flight. Great value for money
