Property Description

We are located on the vibrant Joo Chiat Road, housed in a restored traditional 1920s shop-house. Stay with us for an experience off the beaten track. You will be surrounded by local culture and plenty of amazing local food. Wander off to the nearby East Coast Beach for a leisurely cycle along the coast all the way to Marina Bay in just 40 minutes!

Getting around Singapore from our hostel is easy:
- 15-minute walk from Paya Lebar MRT Station (EW8/CC9)
- 2-minute walk from Bus 33 (to city)
- 6-minute walk from Bus 24 (to airport)

Our spacious and cosy Common Room is perfect for connecting with fellow backpackers. Play a game of pool, browse through our large collection of books, challenge others in a board games showdown, or just enjoy a lazy Netflix evening on one of our comfortable couches.

Our friendly staff will help you with food recommendations, directions, and suggest the best things to do in Singapore based on your interests.

Latest Review

" Security was amazing there was a security door at entrance and free lockers. Atmosphere was dead however I only recommend for those who don't want to meet people and happy just relax or you're not travelling solo. Staff were the best I've had helping me organise my days. Cleanliness was pretty good. Rooms were ok, during the day they were stinking hot but at night they were good, there were also old local dudes living in the dorms and they would just fart all night which was disgusting! "
