I gave the Atmosphere a "good" rating because I just wasn't able to talk to the other customers as much as I would like to due to language barriers. However, I'd give an excellent rating overall. I've heard that if I come back to the hostel later on for another booking, it'd be on a discount?? Cos there's no doubt I would be coming back to Singapore and would still stay at your hostel. Cheerios!

The toilet in the girls dorm room is very disgusting, suggest to repaint the wall or put on tiles. Same to shower screen, looks very dirty. The WiFi in the hostel is extremely slow. Apart from that, the rest is fine.

Good hostel - clean and in a great location. Some rude/loud people staying in the hostel with us, but overall I'd recommend this place if you just need a bed for a night or two.

Not bad, but not very good either. The closeness to the MRT and the prize makes it quite ok.

Pro: Air Con in the room was Super Cold. Iron facilities is good. Con: The shoes rack should be increased. Mattress and blanket could be a little better.

you should tell in your website which floor for each room i dont know my room will be in 4th floor, and its a minus because i came with my parents, and they have some difficulties to take that many stairs...and its so narrow stairs and they have to be more careful I think you should provide sandals for each guests for walking inside because sometimes it get slippery in the stairs...but the sandal itself should not be use for public use but for single guest only and not for next guest...

Best location I've ever had in Singapore. Chinatown MRT Station is just across the hostel. Mosque is about 3 mins walk. You can find halal food near the mosque. I found "pancake durian" at Pepole's Park Complex (5 mins walk), it's so delicious and only SGD 2. Do you want t visit IKEA Alexander ? Take the bus no. 33 in front of the hostel. The room & bathroom was clean. The staffs are nice. You must book private room if you bring your children.
