First of all read the description! You will have to pay extra 12%service charge on your total bill. Came pretty shocking for me cause in the description mentioned at the very bottom of 4 pages..Staff was not friendly when asked for info. Showers & toilets (3 for at least 20 people!) are always together in one "room" and not clean! When you enter the stairway it smells like a mix of curry and garbage.Will annoy sensitive people. Location is close to MRT and good. At least beds are soft and clean.

Difficult to find at night but not too bad of a location. Expected better cleanliness, especially in the toilets area but it was manageable. not bad.

You need to find this hostel carefully, since it has no box sign or else. Read the direction given. It looks awful from the outside, but then it turns into a homey and comfie place. It's sweet that the staff, Franky, upgrade my booking without any charges. So I got a 4-bed dorm instead of a 6-bed dorm. It's a comfortable room with air conditioner though it has no window. The bathrooms are small but that's okay. Franky is so young and friendly. The total amount is = cost + 10% + 3 SGD

Stayed for 16 days, very satisfied. Beware of the 10% service charge that's only mentioned in the notes. Still it is cheap to me because of the convenience it's location brings. Great place to stay in terms of location. Fast free wifi connection. Friendly staff. Kitchen and toilet has only average cleanliness but overall it's great value for this small amount of money.

Everything is good. Really close to MRT. Room had no window, but the rest was OK.

Good location just next to the train station, only 2 stations from city center (few minutes). Free lockers in the dorm, tea and cofee, A/C, hot shower, everything working well. Basic accomodation but very good value for money in Singapore. The staff is friendly but not very helpful... the poor guy is working all the time, day and night, 24h, alone, doing all the job: reception, calls, bookings, bedrooms and bathroom cleaning, breakfast, etc. Please don't be to hard with him ! I RECOMMAND ;-)

We stayed in dorms, the beds were super comfy and the rooms were ACed. There was bread & jam & coffee available for breakfast.Lockers available, deposit needed. They have fridge & small kitchen available.Small living room for hanging out & watching movies available. Unfortunately in our 6-bed room there were mostly older men staying (working in SG) so it lacked young backpackers atmosphere...

not very clean, basic hostel, but definetely worth the money in overpriced Singapore

They will charge you an extra 10 % on the full bill as "Service Charges" - that they have clearly mentioned when booking the place, but they fail to mention, that they do not provide towels? you can rent one for additional 3 Singapore Dollars. I dont know what they charge 10% extra for when they do not even provide towels? But people of the Hostel are nice.

Staff rude and almost unexistent. They seem to be doing a favor to you. I woke up at 7am and just didn't know how the 'free breakfast' works. nobody was there to talk to. I also wanted to checkOut this time and I just couldn't. Bedroom smeels like sweat. I arrived at 10pm and couldn't see anything. No personal reading lights or plugs to charge your phone. Very poor.

I just wanted a hostel close to the MRT for a 1 night stopover that was easy to get to and 98SG was great for that. Not the flashest hostel going but basic and gets the job done.

We had a really horrible bunkmate which tainted our experience. Breakfast was very sub par as well. On the positive side the water pressure was good in the showers, the beds were not too squeaky or uncomfortable and the price was good.
