I wouldn't stay there again even if they paid me to. It's absolutely appaling. If you go around the corner and walk to the other side of the block, you can find other hostels that are clearly better. I was in a room with some less than reputable characters and couldn't sleep at all because they all were snoring. The wifi is hit or miss. The location is in the heart of Chinatown it felt like. I wasn't told to keep my receipt at check-in, and I couldn't find it at check out. So they kept mydeposit
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.
