the staff was very rude, the wifi did not work for two day ,, two whole day ..


Avoid. Facilities in disrepair and unclean. No one is manning the hostel - for everything you need to call. Staff are extremely rude. Needed to check out at 5am in order to catch a morning flight, so returned the key at 11pm the previous night. Unfortunately my backpack was forgotten in the locker after keys were returned. Called the service number past midnight for help. The owner came yelling at me for 10 mins with insulting words. Unbelievable. Apologised again but will never stay again


We booked in the new, nicer part of the hostel and then, when the booking was finished we got moved to the older hostel without being told so before. Wifi connection is really poor. On and off every minute. Not a good value. The location is good though, the hostel is really close to the MRT-station.


For the price you can't really go past place. Only real drawback is it is not the greatest atmosphere for meeting other travellers.


I can imagine that people will think that Kim, the hostlady, is rude. However if you get to know her you can see that she is very friendly and willing to help you with everything! The wifi is the fastest i ever had experienced. There are a lot of foodshops near to the hostel and within 2 min you are at the MRT station. Really good value for your money! Facilities are good and there is even a kitchen. The only thing that is missing is a common room so the atmosphere is average in here.


Very good location, just 1 minute away from the MRT station. Good staff and good cleaness. It’s really lucky to stay here! 實際上在新加坡是換過了一間住宿~這一間比上一次好上太多!我住的四人房安靜整齊又乾淨,客廳廚房浴室總是非常整潔,Kim也是非常熱心,幫我很多!無論短期長期都非常推薦這裡!


Never in my life as a traveller have I met such a horrible host! The women makes a great effort in insulting the guests and being rude with every word that comes out of her mouth. Comes up with strange rules and threatens with giving fines all the time. That´s a pity cos the house/hostel in itself is actually quite nice and it's located in an awesome area of Singapore with lots of cheap, delicious food with great vibe - away from the expensive city center.


A good choice if you wanna stay for low prices. but there is some rules that you must read or you'll suffer penalties like me. haha.. I choose this because of low rates $9 per night, but ends up paying $16 per night. And there is a deposit of $30 that you must lend to the owner. Although ypu')) get it back at the end of your day.. Well, try it if you want~


Excellent location, Perfect Cleaniliness, Good Wifi connectivity and Rude behavior of Lady Manager!


Good hostel, just next to MRT station; surrounded by varies food paradise and shopping areas. The living cost in this area is low compare with others. I will recommend backpack travel friends to stay here!


This hostel is good for values to stay, cool with aircon with good bed. The new staffs provide an excellence services, in additional of its good location. Just 100 meter from MRT station; good local just nearby and connected with other public transport. For sure recommend others to stay in 98SG. Best location, Best service, Best price!!!


Verry good ! I like it


The hostel has changed location recently to a building 3 houses to the right. If you can stand the limited bathroom facilities, 2 that are always wet for some 20 guests, it is quite ok.


The only downside was a group of guests who seem to have taken up residence at the hostel and made the atmosphere quite uncomfortable. The exterior of the hostel makes you doubtful of how it will be inside but it is a really nice place to stay and great value for money. It is so easy to get around from the convinetly located MRT station and the owner has supplied really great information on the location and how to get there from the airport. Would definitely recommend this place to others!


Great option if you're on a tight budget. OK, friendliness from staff - which lacks! - doesn't cost a thing and YES they might clean up the kitchen and showers, but where else are you gonna find a 9 bucks 10 % charge bed in Singapore, at 30 seconds walk from the metro station (MRT "Aljunied" btw)? I think this hostel was good value for money and the negative comments I also read were exaggerated.


Come on people, which HOSTEL allow you to cook? For $9 you want 4 star treatment??? wake up la.. ITS BACKPACKERS HOSTEL.. negative comments I also read were exaggerated. If i Doubt Ask, dont jump to conclusions. Have you seen those guest whose use toilet never flush? We are educated People rite, so before u booked PLEASE READ THE INFO, for any extra charges n rules.

good location, just walking 5 minutes from aljuneid MRT Station,


This hostel was awful and I would that it be closed down, it is not suitable as a hostel, too small, no windows in the bedrooms, the bathroom is a disgrace with no doors and shower facilities in the same place as the toilets, just totally unhygienic and too small and how the poor people work there is beyond me, in fairness they were as helpful as they could be in finding us alternative accommodation and where to go and do things in Singapore.

Bathing room is really small, I am very small but I still think it's super small, guess hard to turn around if you are a big person...... The cleaniness was just alright as I doubt if they change the bed sheet when ppl moving out..... But the position is very close to MRT, which add a credit to this place. All in all, it's alright with short and budget stay but more than 4 days, you better consider different hostel.


I found it difficult to find the receptionist when I signed in and out. Easy to find
