The hostel was very conveniently located near the train station, just a 5 min walk away! The hostel is pretty clean, and changes the Pillow case, Quilt Cover and Mattress casing after every user. The 8-bed room dorm has a balcony on the outside, good for chilling around, and the common area has ample space for interaction and making new friends!


This place initially seemed like the perfect backpacking pad. That was until we realized it was more or less run like a school camp. To be honest the hostel is very very clean with some good amenities (no wifi) however they won't hold back from yelling at you silly things like wanting to have a beer ooutside, using the air con, talking to females from other rooms, using the kitchen. Also the WiFi in the doorms was useless and when we asked about it they just said the reception might be bad. 2|5

Close to main shopping district. Easy going staff, very helpful. The facility is also amazing, large social area and living room, also a full function kitchen.


Best Hostel I stayed in so far!! the atmosphere was so nice, the rooms and bathroom clean, the staff is very friendly, so that you feel very welcome!! The only small negative Point is maybe that the hostel is located in a very small road, which is a bit hard to find..

Nice little hostel. Although the walls are really thin and not too sound proof.

Excellent location! Extremely close to a MRT station and within walking distance to many attractions. The owner of the hostel was also really sweet and helped me out quite a bit :) (although I'm not sure you'll have as much luck if you don't speak Chinese). The hostel was not the cleanliest but you definitely get the value for your money!


Good hostel, staffs r very nice, facilities are clean. The only thing is that the bathroom is a little tigh


A very good hostel with good atmosphere. 3 minutes walk from MRT station. Noted that there are five floors but no elevator. Free tea and coffee are available.
