Best hostel ive stayed at on my RWT. The owner, Mike, is an amazing guy. Common area is small, but possible to still hang around other backpackers. Wish I could have stayed longer.

It was a very clean, comfortable and well-kept hostel. The only thing it lacked was the "hostel vibe" where you meet other travelers and go out to eat or drink together and then hang out in the common area. I really enjoyed my stay but I would suggest making the common hang out area more inviting or larger if possible.

It was a really cosy hostel with easy breakfast options and good wifi and air conditioning. It's a short walk to the MRT but there's buses everywhere. Would recommend staying here if you're heading to Singapore!

Everything was awesome. The bed is comfortable, the hostel is clean. Free toast, nutella, jam for the whole day. Mike is really friendly and the most helpful hoatel stuff I have ever met. Next time I am in Singapore will not need to find a hostel. I already have found the perfect one.

Great hostel. Great atmosphere. Small enough so people can chat with each other very easily. Clean. All things needed are there. Very good 'visual management system' where you know you can find the info you need if you read the right paper ;) I will come back next time I am in Singapore!

I loved my stay. Mike, the owner, is super friendly and helpful. Although not always around you can call him anytime and he'll help you either via phone or pop over as soon as possible. Provides MRT card: very helpful to use the public transport as cheap as possible. Free WiFi was stable, toast & peanut butter are there all day long so you could help yourself whenever you felt like it. ATM and food stalls just around the corner. MRT station bit of a walk, but bus closeby. Tiny and lovely hostel.

A bit small and it seems like it's in an apartment, but that's what makes it cozy. Free bread and spreads. Host can help you with all your questions. Good for a few nights.

Loved this hostel, having all day breakfast cut costs a lot! Mike was lovely and very helpful, the showers were great and really clean. Beds were so comfy, its not a party hostel but i didnt expect that in Singapore anyway, good atmosphere and nice to chill and watch films. The a bus stop across the road that takes you to the trainstation which is great, it was kind of hard to find but im not the best with directions! would stay here again it was a enjoyable experience.

Mike is the best. Haven't met someone more helpful. Place has a mini mart and a food court in the complex so you don't have to go far. Keep in mind staff is only there from 9 to 3 but always reachable by the free local phone. Free on demand movies, excellent Wi-Fi, and a computer you can use if you want. Several bus lines right outside the complex. I booked only 3 days at first, but ended up staying for 2 weeks.

This was a gret place to stay for our short trip to Singapore! We stayed in the 4 bed room which was great! The beds are nice and big and the free breakfast and tea were a wonderful bonus! Great people and awesome staff who had all the information to help us out. Another bonus was the discouted tickets which saved us money! =)

Great hostel! Mike as a host is very warm and helpful. The rate is fantastic, and a bus ride away from Chinatown. It's good that they have food lying around the hostel.

This is the quirkiest hostel I've ever stayed in, it feels like you're staying in someone's appartment when they're not there. Having said that it actually really works well. Great atmosphere, quiet at night but really easy to make friends in the common areas. Free bread and tea, the beds are comfy and Mike the owner is really helpful. It's not in the tourist area but is well served by buses and MRT. I extended my stay I enjoyed it so much!

Whole place is very small, so feels more like a uni dorm than a hostel. Mike (the owner) is amazing, he came round at 11:30pm to fix the washing machine and brought us a load of bbq food from home. You get free tea and toast whenever you want it. Bit of a walk to the BTS but apparently there are buses near by. There's a kitchen, showers, washing machines and free internet all of which made my stay in Singapore a lot cheaper than it could've been, so thank you :)

Yery good hostel, the owner is super friendly and helpful; location is a bit out of the city center but that way it´s in a more quiet neighborhood and chinatown/the city center is still within walking distance. Small and cozy, you can book many tours from there and get a discount, for example for the night safari at the zoo or gardens by the bay. Getting there from the airport is super easy, there is a shuttle bus that will drop you off direktly by the front door. Would definitely book it again!

A great hostel for someone looking to see Singapore on a budget. A bit of a walk to places, but you can walk anywhere from here. The staff is very helpful and easy to approach.
