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!
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.

this was one of the best hostel i stayed. I have to say, this is my fifth month I am traveling and stayed in many different hostels. I wouldn't call Happy Snails as hostel, I'd call it "Home". It's a small apartment and feels like home. Mike owner is such a nice guy! When I first arrived, he welcomed me and explained everything. The room was clean and bed was made for me. I did had cash on me; still Mike allowed me to stay and pay tomorrow. I would come back in a heartbeat.
Owners of the hostel are amazing. Air conditioning, laundry, washrooms and unlimited free bread, Nutella and peanut butter are all a plus. Place is probably the cleanest hostel I've been ! Location is not the greatest but definitely manageable. Pretty good cafeteria right downstairs. Would definitely recommend this place.
Good hostel. The staff is really nice. Recommended.
If was a pleasant stay, we liked the atmosphere and the toast breakfast and the always cool drinks option. The owner Mike was fun and friendly and helpful.
mit`s really impressive hot this hostel run through uito
Was super cool. Very chilled atmosphere. WOuld definetly go there again :)
Had a great stay here for two nights. Mike is a wonderful host and a charming man. He allowed me to use his phone to call my next hostel in Malaysia free of charge which was very kind. He is not there all of the time and it I found it strange being in a hostel with no staff at times, however he was always contactable and there was a phone to use free to do so. The wifi was great and I enjoyed the free bread and jam etc. it is a bit of a walk to get to the MRT but there are plenty of buses.
