Nice and clean hostel. Near city area and would come again. Recommended to all budget travellers.

To be honest I didn't expect much from the place given the great price but it turned out to be fantastic.The room and bathroom are very clean and tidy. Staff is extremely helpful. It is convenient to travel to sentosa and china town by bus. I slept comfortably through the night. Location is great for the quiet residential atmosphere. I would definitely stay here again!


Clean and value for money! Easy access to attractions by bus and friendly hostel staff.


A very quiet and basic hostel for those who aren't looking to party every night. The hostel is a 20 min walk from china town but a better option is to catch the bus and then jump on the mrt at outram park, get an ez link card to cover both modes of transport. The hostel itself could be a little cleaner, however the owner and staff were incredibly polite and helpful. In all a decent but basic hostel for those looking for a base to explore the city.


Lotus was very small, quiet, and quaint. Those looking for a lo-key hostel to relax at without all the hustle and bustle should spend a night here.

If you live here, you must know how to take a bus. It's easy to get every where. The bus station name is Blk149 . From hostel to outram park MRT takes 20 minutes.

Nice small interesting place. Location is the unique part, being in a residential block past. Nice staying with locals and not touristy area. Bad part is that it's 20 min walk to the MRT and in the Singapore heat thats not good! The room itself is good, AC, even a TV and free WIFI. Bed bit hard, we were only there two nights but if you were there longer might hurt your back. Common area is very small and right outside rooms, so noise, should be closed after 10pm. Would stay again for short time.
