Really crappy beds and cramped rooms only separated by a dirty curtain. Bathroom is tiny and quite unclean. No atmosphere whatsoever. Only good thing is the incredible location. If you want to see lots of Singapore though this is a good place to stay because it'll make you want to stay out all day and night!

It was quite cheap. The location is excellent, but at a cost. The beds are separated by curtains and cabinets. No kitchen. The beds are old and bent in the middle.

This was a disapointement. We chose this hostel to have a private room to be able to repack our luggage, but the room was way too small and we barely had space for our luggage. The staff was very unwelcoming and made us feel like we were bothering them. I saw the bunkbeds and it was a mess. Sheets/Draps were used as walls. No common area and the facilities were not nice. Ended up moving to a different hostel accross the street. Would not recommend. Was at the level of an Indonesian homestay.

Seemed to be a lot of locals in there. Older men that lived there. Was clean, and the location was good. Wi-Fi was really good. And sometimes, that's all that matters haha

The hostel is near to pagoda street where you can buy gift that are very cheap. The mrt chinatown is also near to the hostel. The hostel is clean and they have aircond inside the room. Fridge, iron, hair dryer, water and water warmer provided by the hostel.

Nice area within Chinatown, very good value, would stay again if needed. Overall nice hostel, only issue would be the private room we were in had very thin walls and we were easily woken during the night by some new arrivals. Also shower isn't great. If you want to stay in a cheap place for a few nights to enjoy the city then this is perfect.
