Really easy to get everywhere from here. Lovely staff, nice if you are looking for a small cozy hostel. Relaxing atmosphere, cheap food next door and can't really beat the price.
Overall we had a pleasant stay. Bedrooms were clean but bathrooms needed serious attention and common area could definitely have been cleaner. Laundry was kind of expensive but it was nice to have breakfast foods, coffee, te, etc. provided. Security was excellent; lockers in each room, just needed to have your own lock.
Hostel is very nice and clean. Unlimited toast and spreads was great. Host supplied a lot of useful information and discounted tickets. Hostel facilities were run on good will/honesty payments in a pot which made it very efficient. Only negative was that it wasn't the most sociable place with a small cramped communal area but Singapore is a great city so get out there and explore! I would definitely stay here again.
The staff is extremelly friendly and helpful. Best place to go if you want to meet people and make friends.
Smallest hostel I've ever seen, makes getting to know everyone easy. Fun and comfortable place, would possibly stay again.
Clean, friendly staff but far from mrt. Have to take a bus
Thank you for the amazing time in Singapore, guys! Great atmosphere in the hostel which rather felt like a living community. The Wifi connection is very good and if you get hungry there is always enough toast, peanut butter, Nutella and other things that will make you replete.
Nice hostel, small and adequate for a stay in Singapore. Clean and about 10 min from mrt. Mikes a chill guy with discount tickets for attractions.

Had a really good stay at this hostel. The air conditioning was on all the time and the free bread and Nutella was always available. The location is next to two bus stops that can take you anywhere you need to go. There is cheap hawker markets right next to the hostel and a little shop. This hostel is ideal for Singapore. Mike is very friendly and can get you reduced price tickets for most attractions in the city, which helps a lot in Singapore!
Everything needed for a comfortable stay. Oversized, comfortable mattresses, free coffee, tea, toast with peanut butter and nutella all day! Good wifi, good air conditioning, information about activities posted all over the walls. They sell tap and go card that gives discounts for riding trains and buses then will buy back whatever balance is left on the card when you leave. Mike, the owner is just a super nice guy.
I loved this place! It's got a small common area, which makes it very easy to meet people, it feels like home! Mike and his family are absolutely amazing! They are so helpful and know everything there is to know about Singapore! As the reviews state, owner is not there a lot, but there is no need for him to be. Everything is labeled so you don't need to ask questions, and there's a free phone that you can call him on if you do have any questions and he is quick to answer it!
This is the perfect place to stay if you want to meet other like minded travellers in a relaxed and cosy environment. The owner, Mike, is a fountain of knowledge regarding Singapore and always happy to help you plan your day. The unlimited bread, spreads, coffee and tea is a really nice touch. Showers are clean, beds very comfortable. The closest mrt station is about 10 minutes walk and the bus only a few minutes. One of my favourite hostels so far and highly recommended.
Not in the city centre but not far at all and close to a bus stop with regular buses. Small hostel which meant a good atmosphere. Great facilities (big beds, nice showers, good tv and great wifi). Free toast and tea and coffee all day. Staff very helpful. Labels, maps and leaflets on everything. Reception sells cheap attraction tickets and bus tickets. Highly recommended!
hot showers. fast wifi. More like a shared apt. owner isn't there more than a few hrs in the morning. I didn't have a problem with this. I emailed him in advance that I needed a late checkin & he replied very quickly with instructions. Got in no problem and he's got signs up everywhere so you don't feel lost. The only hostel I've been in that gives you free bread peanut butter and Nutella ALL DAY! Would stay again. Only downside is it's a 30 min bus ride from town but bus is so easy and nbd
I loved my stay at Happy Snail! The other travellers were super friendly, it was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The free bread and spreads were great and you get discounts on attractions. Would definitely recommend and stay there again.
feel like home, mike is very nice. make friends here
Really great hostel. Owner was extremely helpful and really friendly. Great facilities, clean and air conditioned in hot and humid Singapore. Wifi is great. Good deals to attractions. Plenty of tourist info available. Buses outside, short walk to mrt station and there's even a small hawker stall downstairs for food!
Clean hostel, actually it's a small apartment and it feels like home. Free toast, jam, peanut butter and nutella the whole day. Very friendly and welcoming owner. A great place to recommend.
lovely and helpful owner family, well organized hostel, always clean and very central located, close to chinatwon, 10min to MRT station, 1min to reach a lot of bus stations, 1min to a local food corner, thanks for that great place!
Great prices for in-hostel services (eg. Laundry, towel rental). Wifi is awesome. Nice and laid back. Not a noisy party place. Great inexpensive food close by. Good location for getting inexpensive taxis to the city or to the train station. Friendly owner. Will stay here again.
