Nice pods with 2 lockers (one for ur electronics). the green blanket to cover urself was covered with hair. :( the bathroom with shower/toilet in one stall is not really my thing. could be cleaner and everything is wet. breakfast was good: cereals, toast and fruits. u don't get to meet too many single backpackers, mostly groups. location is good (10-15mins walk to 3 subway stations.really liked the decoration of the commonroom. would recommend this hostel despite its negative points.

As to be expected for Singaporean standards: super clean, everything in very good working order, with hot water for showers, spacious, very good secure storage space. Minor issue in female dorm, guests arrived very late in the middle of the night (2am) another 1.30am on separate occasions & I had 4am wake up to catch flight; guests turned main light on, chatted loudly, rummaged around for a long while with no considerations for other sleeping guests, not using individual personal bed lights.

The blanket and bed sheet still have hair.. Need to look into that because it tells us perhaps they don't change them.

If took a fair while to walk to the hostel. Once I got there I was told I should have gone to a different station than the one they included in their emailed directions. The room was very small and I was sharing with 4 Indonesian businessmen. They were friendly, but not ideal for a solo female traveler.

Even that I stayed in a 16 bed dorm I has a lot of privacy as the beds are little cubes. You have your own safe and plug. The breakfast is cereal and toast. I liked it and would go there again. Oh and the bus stop is one step out of the hostel, very cconvenient.

very nice hostel right in the middle of Little India. Good connections to bus and MRT system. A lot of good restaurants right around the corner. Just the size of the 16 dorm room is very small but ok

Everything was really clean, toilets included. Although, there weren't enough bathroom facilities especially since toilets and showers are in the same stall. Other than that, great pod beds. They provide good personal space. The kitchen and living room are also very nice to use. Good and plenty of breakfast in the morning. Nice staff.

Hostel located on the edge of little India, but just outside. About 10 mins walk to mrt (ferrers park) which will take you anywhere. Dorms are in the forms of sleeping pods, and are kept very clean. Same with bathroom, very clean.

Nice hostel and close to Little India and the MRT stations. The beds are ok but the rooms are small. Breakfast is ok, basicly toast, Nutella and fruits.

Best hostel i've ever tried. Extremely clean, comfortable bed with your own pod, and great lobby for socialising. The only minus is unstable wifi. If they put a curtain for the bed, that would be perfecto.

Clean and tidy. great location with a bus stop just at doorsteps, and queen st bus terminal within short walking distance, which is pretty convenient for people coming from M'sia.

This hostel looked really cool. The common area was amazing, huge and really well designed with lots of books, a TV, guitar, kitchen etc. It also was really clean, the rooms were very spacious and the beds were really comfortable. Unfortunately the atmosphere really let the place down. I seemed to be one of the only Western backpackers there and so there wasn't much socializing to be done. The location is quite good, near to Little India and Bugis and breakfast is great.

Very clean rooms and good atmosphere in the lounge area. Lots of facilities in the kitchen and friendly helpful staff. Would stay again and recommend

Apart from atmosphere (boring) and staff that was not really fun, our stay at B88 was okay. Might consider booking it again, in case I ever come back but would definitely also look for alternatives. The area little India seemed to not be happy about all the tourists. This made us feel very uncomfortable walking around.... Breakfast is good and so are the dorm rooms and bathrooms.

I enjoyed staying in B88 hostel as it is close to many prominent places in SG. Furthermore the price is also good and reflects the quality of the hostel and its staffs. Staffs are very friendly, helpful and could help us give a guidance on places to visit and transportation. The only problem about the hostel is that there are no staffs standing by at night after 11 PM and therefore create difficulties for guests arriving after 11 due to delayed flights.
