The hostel is very clean and comfortable. Female dorm is quiet, and the bed is clean and comfortable. You'll get two locker, a big one for your baggage and a small one at your bed for precious things. The only cons about this hostel is its location which is quite far from MRT. There is a bus stop nearby, but since it is located in one way street, you might walk quite far on your way back.

The staff was extremelly helpful (like a lot of people in Singapore). Often I got my answer even before I could actually ask. Like when I was studying Singapore map and a lady came to help me with everything I needed to know about the city. There are big lockers inside of the dorms for your backpack and for breakfast a lot of fruits, toasts, cereals and nutella! The place felt safe.

It was a good hotel, very clean. What I didn't quite like about it is that the staff doesn't have any rules regarding proper decorum in the common room. People were allowed to raise their feet on the couch's arm rest.

The location was good, easily accessible to public transport. The bathrooms were dirty, but the rooms were clean. The man who worked there was nice and helpful.

A great location near to Little India, Bugis MRT station and a bus stop right outside. Staff were very friendly and helpful, dorms and bathrooms were clean and tidy. Breakfast of toast, cereal, fruit, tea and coffee- pretty good for a hostel! Water re-fills too. Good value for Singapore.

Great value for money. It is a 5 - 10 minute walk from the MRT stations but it's a budget hostel so you can't expect everything. The two slight annoyances where one, the other occupants (I stayed in a large dorm). They were too noisy between 11pm - 2am - could be worth sending a member of staff around the large dorms at 11pm to remind noisy people to be quiet. And two, the bathroom floor was always wet - might be worth installing a fan of some sort to increase airflow to help dry it.

Don't stay in this hostel if you want to meet people. Other guests seemed to be staying here to save money rather than to get a hostel experience. There were families and middle aged single men. Though the staff were excellent, they worked hard and were helpful. The breakfast had both fruit and nutella which was great.

Not the cheapest deal in town but you get what you pay for. No complaints at all - I enjoyed the boxpod bed style dorm arrangement (maybe not for you if you're claustraphobic). Also close to Little India, which is buzzing. Breakfast was basic but does the job and there is a lovely living room with selection of movies and a guitar, which I enjoyed. Bathrooms were good too.

Me and and boyfriend had a great 4 nights stay at B88 Hostel. It was our first time to visit Singapore and if will be given a chance to visit SG again in the future, we would definitely stay again in this hostel. Free breakfast, clean area and their staff the accommodating.

I like the bed very much! It is private! But the location is bad, I need to spend more than fifteen minutes to walk to the mrt station. Moreover, the first time I went to there, the road was fixing and I cannot find the way to there, the map is useless.

Really liked this hostel. Second time I've stayed here. It's a bit of a trek from the metro, but it's a friendly hotel without being rowdy and the facilities are very good.

Yei.......... It was a nice time for me while I was in B88. most of facilities so good with friendly staff. but the smoking area is too hot. so if you can cover that under A/C with some absorbing system, it would be great relaxing area for your customers. Thank........ Yohan.

Pretty good location but the hostel lacked 'life' the pod beds were a good idea to be able to have a bit more space but the rooms are so small it felt like climbing into a little cave.

Good Hostel and reasonable price. Anyhow staff comes to clean the room too early; it disturbs the guest who still sleep.
