Near enough to enjoy exotic food, lively street life & great buys of Chinatown yet far enough from the beer-carousing of Chinatown Food Centre, the musical revues of Telok Ayer Open Stage 秦腔 & street noise (although that will change when digging begins on the new MRT station infront of Fernloft!).Shower & toilet stalls---small (1 sq. metr) but ok. Auntie is a great innkeeper---knows when to engage guests & when to allow private space.There are helpful Post-Its everywhere (keep an eye out). :o)

Auntie Annie makes time to get in touch with her guests and to get a conversation going. Great atmosphere and quite affordable given the price level in Singapore. We really loved our stay!

Nice staff and good plsce in vhinatoen. Nice host. But small room and I got bites from bed bugs and slow printer.

Size of room is in accordance with guidelines from approving authority. Guest went to the bed straight after she spent quite a while in the field across the hostel playing a lantern. As the grass in the wide field is thick and long, she might have been bitten by insects and leeches. There is definitely no bug in the bed as the outfit is fumigated regularly. Other guests who were present testified to the complainant they were not affected. Sometime, bugs are brought in by the backpackers.

thanks for the feedback request for stay at Hostel Fernloft City (Chinatown). we arrived at 11 pm as many as 8 people, and the same that had greeted the hostal, my experience during the stay in some hostal (eg Royal, bear and Fernloft in chinatown), Hortel Fernloft least good (only 3 bathrooms while the occupants are very much about 25 beds) and too many rules and most minimal breakfast facilities. This is the first and hopefully my last hostel to Fernloft City (Chinatown) is. thank you

The group's ruckus and the mess created from the food and drinks they brought in to the dormitory caused so much nuisance to other guests that left the Branch Manager with no choice but to politely advise them to observe the Hostel rules after her many attempts to curb their unruly behavior failed. The bathrooms for 18 beds, not 25 beds, the maximum allowed, are in compliance with regulatory requirements.Continental breakfast is complimentary.
