“A good price considering you are in Singapore”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

Upon entry to the hostel we were greeted by a very friendly and helpful member of staff who gave us the key to our room.
The second floor of the hostel has a Common area where you can relax, get a free cup of tea or coffee or surf the Internet on provided computers, overall a nice addition to the hostel as a whole. The seventh floor also boasts a nicely layed out viewing area.

Our experience was only really tainted by the room we were provided with. The first thing we noticed when we stepped in was the absence of a window in the main room giving a nasty feeling of claustrophobia. There was a small window in the bathroom (which didn't close). Another issue was the air conditioning which was ineffective, loud and could not be turned off.

Overall, a relatively well thought out hostel for a decent price, just make sure you get a room with a window in the main room

We had a wonderful time in Singapore, staying at the Hangout for 8 nights. The proximity to the MRT was a plus and there is no shortage of interesting places to eat. On a nice quiet street it still has an interesting view from the rooftop. Rooms well cared for and reception staff were really helpful. Breakfast good and free wifi was a bonus. We plan to stay here again.

We stayed here for 2 nights in a twin room! Room was a good size for singapore!
Staff were excellent, very friendly, helpful and willing to chat!
After checking out, I was aloud to stay, use the facilities, free tea/coffee, free wiifii and computers.
Great location with short walks to the MRT. or into Little India.
Thanks for a great time, highly recommend.

Pros: Good price, truly no frills, friendly staff, free local calls, fast free wifi internet access, clean room and comfortable beds with air conditioning, affordable price, good breakfast menu, good location - near Little India and dhoby ghaut MRT station, free coffee and tea at 2nd floor, free computer with internet connection at 2nd floor, efficient check in and check out, free luggage storage at front office.
Cons: bottles of mineral water only provided on the first day.
Tips: if you come up by foot / using MRT, choose to stop at Little India Station, because the stairs of Mt Emily hill from Little India Station are not too high.
Overall I am satisfied with this hotel - low price but high quality in services. Will be back to stay again on my next visit to Singapore.

Room Tip: ask for private room if you stay with your family.

What I like about this hostel is that it is really clean and quiet. The people are nice and they serve quite good breakfast. What I don't like though is how far they are from the subway. Even if you take the shortcuts, it's not that near. Also, they do not even provide the basics such as toothpaste and toothbrush. This is a budget hotel, I know, but they should be able to provide one at least the basics.

I would rather stay in Chinatown again since you still have a lot to do in the nearby areas

We stayed here in May for two nights in a 6 bed dorm which had its own bathroom and it was amazing! The hostel was so clean and the staff so friendly and helpful. It was our first stop on the way to backpacking oz and nz and I think this was the best hostel we stayed in the whole trip! The breakfast included was lovely too and the hostel has everything you need. There are two MRT stations only 5 minutes walk if that and we walked down to the gardens by the bay which only took about 30mins at the most! Great location and staff are so helpful with directions too! Definitely recommend this hostel!
