Thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. Basic amenities available and maintained well. Very comfortable and clean, with friendly and helpful staff. Will definitely recommend it to others and will definitely choose to stay there again if possible.

Comfortable beds, with lights and a plug each, self-controlled airconditioning throughout the whole hostel, good bathrooms(only two though), nice atmosphere. Home-like feeling, helped by the fact that you have a 24/7 supply of Nutella, Peanut Butter and Jam (big glasses!) + different sorts of toast. A food court is directly outside, with good, stuffing foods around 3-4$ each. Really friendly owner and staff, provide you with all you need for discovering Singapore. Definitely recommended

Michael was really great with everything and the atmosphere is really nice although I found it a little small as there wasn't much space to chill out. location is in easy reach of everything, walk 10 minutes to the subway station and everywhere is easy to access

Very friendly staff! Good beds! They inform you about anything you have to know about Singapore and its facilities! There are some bus stations close to the hostel as well!

I enjoyed the atmosphere here. I met some kind people and felt very comfortable. The location is not great, too far from mrt, and it was a little expensive, but i had a very happy stay.

Certainly a nice place to stay. Owner Mike is friendly, so are the people staying there and so we truly enjoyed our four nights there. Cheaper tickets are also sold at the counter. However if you are someone who are claustraphobic ans prefers space, maybe not that good. Overall, the whole stay was pretty awesome.

I found an environment very nice and affordable. Surely the hostel is very clear. The host is really friendly and ready to help you if need. I had to leave one day before and he refunded me without asking him”

Great place, met the owner Mike's friend Ivan. Great ppl, had a nice chill experience, and worth the price you pay! Very at home feel to it. However, if you are claustrophobic, not the best place. Despite that, it was a great place and made some new friends in the hostel! A bit far to walk from Outram Park Station, so you would need to either walk 15 minutes to the station, or take the bus. Very clean place and recommend for someone who wants calm and chill.

Perfect hostel. 24 hr breakfast, cheap drinks, A/C, comfortable beds, lockers and an extremely nice/helpful owner. 15 minute walk to MRT but close to multiple bus stops. Loved our stay here.

Fantastic place to stay, showering room is clean, whole day breakfast, friendly host Mike. Worth more than you pay. Will definitely book this hostel again when I come back.

One of the cooler hostels we've stayed at during our travels. It feels like you're living in a shared apartment with some fellow backpackers, making it very easy to chat with people and make new friends. The owner, Mike, isn't there very much, but he's a friendly, helpful guy and the place basically runs itself, so...

Stayed here for 6 nights. While a little bit out of the way, you are within walking distance of an SMRT station (Outram Park) that connects you up to everywhere you want to go. There are also plenty of buses available.... unless you like to be in the centre of town, location is not an issue here! Due to its small size, hostel had a very homey time feeling to it and it was easy to get to know everyone else who was staying there. Mike also has satellite TV so there is always a good TV selection!

Excellent hostel. Mike the hostel owner is very friendly and helpful, breakfast is fairly basic, but with no arbitrary cut off time is great. Hostel is clean and well kept. A little bit out of the way, but easy enough to get to.
