This is a rundown slump instead of a backpacker. The image of the hostel is fake as it was actually Kallang River hostel. Trust me you will not want to be there even 10 minutes. This slump is super dirty where the toilet ceiling is leaking and brought shame to Singapore society that value hygiene highly. Breakfast only served bread no drinks like being mentioned. I will not return even if it's FREE. It's better to sleep in the streets or park than this slump. AVOID AT ALL COST OR YOU WILL REGRET

The hostel is really close to Kallang MRT and bus station but the room & toilet is very dirty.
