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.

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.

Clean hostel with comfortable beds. Easy to get around by bus and the owner has lots of notes and signs with which buses to take. Mike (the owner) isn't around much which means the hostel is left to the guests most of the time, seemed a little strange to me and made checking in difficult. We wanted to start our day early but had to wait for Mike until 9:30 am, he was very nice though so if you asked you might be able to work something else out if you find yourself in a similar situation.

Its a very unique hostel. The owner is only there a few hours a day, so you need to email him your arrival time and he would email back with instructions on how to get in ( access card locked in a small cabinet by the door). The hostel has a friendly feel with a huge amount of info, maps and tips, very helpful. There is free bread, jam, nurella and peanut butter. The place is small but very clean, good value for money. There is a phone that you can use to ring Ken if there is any problem.

Amazing hostel, I haven't seen one like it in awhile. The owner is very knowledgeable and lets you know how to get to where you want to go. It's kinda small but that means you get better interaction from a all your fellow hostel mates. I thought Singapore was going to be boring but this hostel made it a city to remember.

Nice place and very cheap for Singapore. The rooms are pretty small so everyone hangs out in the common area which is nice and makes for a good social scene. The AC in our room didn't really work which was kind of unpleasant in the mornings but it did mean you got an early start to the day. They also had tons of free bread peanut butter and Nutella which was a nice touch. Overall would stay here again.

This hostel really knows how to receive guests - even if there's no attendant. I was pretty amused with the post-its scattered around the walls which will tell you EVERYTHING you need to know (even how to use the TV remote control lol). I also love the nutella-all-you-can, and Mike was even extra kind to buy roti prata for everyone. Two thumbs up!

A little bit smaller hostel than we expected, with just three rooms. It was just good and you could choose to socialize with others or have your own time in your room. The internet connection was fast and reliable and we had a lot of help from that. We were also able to buy metro card from the owner Mike, and got help from him in order to catch the right bus etc. The bathrooms got a little bit dirty after a while, and could need more regular cleaning.

Very small, intimate hostel that has been one of the cleanest I have ever seen!
