Welcoming, clean friendly atmosphere. Right outside the train station and walkable to the marina. Great hostel

Incredibly friendly staff and reassuring security options. Loved the converters and privacy sheet. The postcard service also saved me heaps of time. My only criticism is the shower didn't look perfectly clean (I saw some fresh stains last more than 24 hours) but it was still adequate.

A great place to base yourself for a few days in Singapore. The location is perfect, right next to Chinatown, which makes it easy to access other parts of the city. The dorm room was a good size, quiet and the bed was super comfy. The bathroom was clean. The common area is good place to meet fellow travellers and the breakfast in the morning was good too. Couldn't fault this place.

Very nice hostel for a couple of nights, ideal for someone who isnt into the party scene. Location in chinatown was the perfect base from which to explore the city. The bathrooms are so-so, and the showers werent so clean, but the AC worked really well in the rooms.

It would be great that padlocks will be included along when checking in.

This hostel was safe, clean, excellent location near lots of affordable food and nightlife, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the lockers were large. The staff gave excellent tips on what to do and where to go. I look forward to staying here next time I am in similar.

Only one toilet and sink on my floor of the hostel, but facilities were very clean and staff was helpful and friendly. Excellent location across the street from Chinatown MRT and walkable to Chinatown.

Thanks Mark! Appreciate your support! :) Ps: Admittedly we are a little bit bias and gave the female bathroom 3 sinks on each floor. Sorry! :P

Very good location, right across the street from Chinatown metro station; good (Chinese) food options around; very comfy couch, good beds with sheets to pull in front for privacy (bottoms only), air con, ventilator, good "kopi" (coffee), very friendly staff, free city maps. Not enough sitting space but the m² are limited and for that they do a good job. Lot of stairs with no elevator. I didn't like it when people used the toilet as a shower and everything is wet... Key card access.

I enjoyed this hostel and met some cool people. The place is kinda in your face because the owner collects teddy bears and they are literally everywhere!! Location is good and directly across from a metro station. Staff is very friendly.

The staff were super friendly and provided great recommendations for exploring the city. The atmosphere was lovely with tons of stuffed bears and the location was unbeatable. Dorms were pretty standard, not a lot of space but a locker that is big enough for a large traveller's backpack, which is nice.

Overall this is a really nice hostel and I would recommend it. It wasn't massively social though, and the room we had smelt musty (it was clean though) but we had no way of airing it. The breakfast was good and the complimentary hot chocolate was a bonus :D good location near the MRT (metro)

Hey! Thanks for the approval! :) Pity you missed the fun bunch of guests we had during the new year's eve period. Most of them left after the new year... Think you arrived a few days after that and everyone was just sobering up. Noted on the room condition - we will look into it - air it daily by opening up the windows and maybe bring in our air purifying machine to that room just to be sure. Thanks for the feedback.

Very convenient location. Subway station, bus stop, a lot of foods around this area. Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and have locker for each, but need your own padlock.

A very nice place indeed! The atmosphere is great as well as the staff. The location is also very good next to the probably most useful metro line. I will choose this hostel again if I come back to Singapore.

Salute back! We have been continuously updating our facilities based on travelers feedback. We think we are still far from being complete... but we TRY! :) As for the locker... we believe using your own lock is the safest as that ensures no one except you can access your locket. Thank you for the high score nevertheless. We are glad you left satisfied. :)
