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.

Would have been a perfect hostel if it wasn't for the unfriendly day time female receptionist.

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.

The 16 bed dorm had individual lockers for your bag and also a small one by your bed for valuables. Free breakfast is good, there's peanut butter and Nutella!!! Location is alright, 10 mins walk away.

Our stay at B88 was very convenient.The hostel is located in the area of Little India, so there are great opportunities to eat outside.I can truly recommend the restaurants in Arab Street.The stuff was really helpful! They also can get you some of the tickets cheaper (like the one for Cloud Forest next to Gardens by the Bay).Breakfast is included and really ok. You can eat and drink as much as you want.Air conditioning in the rooms is a little tricky, cause some parts of the rooms are too cold.

Really liked this hostel. The pod beds are great: you can turn your light on and not wake the rest of the rooms. The bathrooms weren't great, but I would stay here again

Really liked my one night stay at this hostel. Some might dislike the cubicle kind of style on the beds, but I personaly love it. Good storing spaces. The location is good, walking distance to Bugis station. Nice breakfast and facilities. The personal was helpful and available during their working hours. Negative, the floors in the bathroom/shower room becomes completely flooded as soon as anyone takes a shower.
