The location of this hostel is convenient enough to walk to the MRT station. We also met some fellow travelers within the place. Recommended for backpacking in Singapore! :)

      This is the second time I've been here. I liked this place due to : value for money, strategic location, near to the famed tourist spots and warm and hospitable receptionists. Cons: They just have to clean the facilities more. Thorough cleaning. Kitchen sink, mirrors, bathrooms and restrooms. Also, please fix the bed bugs issue. My cousins were bitten the first time we were there.

      The very best of this hostel were very nice staff, near to MRT, breakfast was ready at any time and near to seven eleven. My first night was very OK. But the second night, the bed bugs come. Fortunately, I bring my own insecticide and not get any bites from that scary thing. If you have enough money and good health, you better choose another place.

      Cheap stay if you're in a group of 4”

      Pros: cheap, air-conditioned room. Bunk beds. Perfect for group of 4 backpackers. Friendly staff. Cons: shower water got smell like discarded aquarium water.

      Disappointing”

      First of, the photos here are misguiding that is not what it looks like in person not even close. Second, the hostel is a bit dirty it could use a lot of dusting or cleaning. Third, BEDBUGS, lets just say one of my friends did not get to sleep our entire stay and some got bug bites as souvenir because of this termites not even after the staff sprayed something in our rooms. As for the staff they are very accommodating. Overall, I don’t think we would be staying here again.

      Good location. Good for backpackers, not so much for families.
