Great place. The atmosphere was really chill and the man working the front seat was the most helpful hostel worker I've ever met!

Friendly & helpful staff. Close to a bus stop, shops & about 15 minutes walk from Paya Lebar MRT. Surroundings a bit dodgy when the colorful nightlife next door starts up. Mattresses were well used, but the sheets provided were clean. Stayed in the 20-bed dorm where things can get a bit musty with the piles of unwashed personal clothing piled up here & there. Basic toilet & showers -- clean & no long queue for either. Big common area where a/c is on all day. WiFi okay. Good budget dorm.

Very nice, helpful staff. Basic breakfast and the cat was nice. There is Netflix and chill every night. Good location but far from "downtown".

Solo traveler in the 20-person dorm - Pros: Great staff especially the guy working the night shifts on weekdays, very informative and enthusiastic about everything Singapore. Cute cat, easy to meet people over free breakfast. Close to some really good Chinese restaurants on East Road. Cons: The location is 15-20 min walk from the nearest MRT. Not the most comfortable of beds but for the money it's good. Don't expect personal outlets or lights. Wifi can be really spotty. Overall would rec.

GREAT STAY. Great neighborhood, great food just blocks away. Good AC. Good Wifi (common area only). Good breakfast with 3 different kinds of bread for toast (white, wheat, and green) and many spreads (butter, pb, strawberry, blueberry, coconut jam, orange marmalade, coco hazelnut, and marmite) AND a variety of fruit. Free gym access - awesome. Nice helpful staff. People hang out in the common area, nice. After switching areas to explore more, we realized how good it really was.

The hostel is nice, the athmosphere is good. Breakfast very basic but with fruit, so not too bad. Internet connection has had lots of issues, probably due to too many users. Staff is generally very helpful but one particular person seems to like playing some strange games (like telling you there are no availabilities while online there are - probably depends on whether he likes you or not). Really annoying is that they turn aircon off between 11am and 7pm, dont expect good sleep in that time.

A good hostel with most of the amentities you need and a nice breakfast each morning. Considering dorms are pricey beds weren't the most comfortable Ive experienced while traveling. Shower rooms are old and could do with updating and not the most social hostel I've stayed in, but it serves the purpose. Some male staff seemed a bit lazy~but its my personal experience.

Very nice and helpful staff, the beds were comfortable and the dorm was spacious with big windows to let in some daylight during the day! Nice common area with outlets to charge phones/cameras, books and boardgames. Have to walk a little bit to get the MRT, but the cheap price makes up for the location of the hostel. Would definitely recommend staying here if you're in Singapore on a budget!
