The Lotus Hostel has decent facilities and a good location (close to the city centre and 20m walk from a hawker centre and a supermarket). Great value for the money. Okay, these are the facts. Beyond them, the Lotus Hostel is a great place to go because the owners, Kim and Roi, are EXTREMELY friendly and give you a shipload of advice every time you meet them. Of the 20-25 hostels which I've been to while traveling, I'd say these guys were the nicest owners of all of them.


This hostel is a great one if you are after some where clean and quiet. The hosts are extremely attentive and it has all of the amenities you could want. It isn't that close to any of the major touristy places, and you have to walk about 20 minutes to catch the MRT. But there are loads of buses and the hosts are really helpful in showing you which ones to get on.


I am a girl from Hong Kong. I have been staying in Lotus Hostel for 6 days 5 nights on late August. I regarded it as my best hostel experience! The hosts, Roy and Kim were really friendly and helpful! They helped me to find the place which sold sim-card and guide me to different tourist spots in Singapore. I felt so warm while talking with them every morning! The atmosphere was so good and the room was very clean! I would recommend everyone who visit Singapore to stay there.

The couple were so helpful and the hostel was right next to a bus station so easy to get around


one of the best hostel I've stayed at so far. The owners were very nice and they helped me get around Singapore. It is not exactly in the center of Singapore but there is a bus stop nearby which was really convenient. The place was also very clean and well kept. I definitely recommend this hostel for anyone visiting Singapore.


We are so thankful for your hospitality and kindness throughout our stay. We felt very welcomed and accommodated to, which we appreciated a lot.

More than friendly, funny and very helpful hosts. The Chinese quarter is walkable in 15 minutes and for the rest you have a good bus connection in front by the door. Is more homestay than proper hostel. Once you are there, ask the host for the best haionnese chicken and carrot cake in Singapore.


Very reasonably placed hostel in Singapore close to outram MRT. The owners were very helpful and cared a lot that their guests were safe. The place was very clean and quiet at night Good place to stay in Singapore

Me and my girlfriend came on our first vacation together to Singapore and stayed at this wonderful hostel. The rooms are newly renovated and everything is in very good condition. Kim and Roy were so friendly, always smiling and joking with us and calling us married on our honeymoon. The hostel feels more like a home stay than a hostel. They offer free toast, jam and cookies for breakfast (24h), as well as lots of coffee and tea. Offered lots of help and advice to us. We will come back for sure!


We like it, the environment was very quiet and calm, the hostel was renew, so its look very fresh. Kim and roy also very nice and helpfull. Our room its exactly what we need under the very cheap price. The hostel near the bus stop, so its easy to get to the mrt or any other place we need. I would definitely come back again here one day..
