It was heavy rain and we arrived much much earlier before the check in time. The staff was helpful enough to check availability room and allowed us to check in earlier. The cleanliness of the bed sheets and the locker provided in the room not well maintain, these are the only 2 thing which concerned me.


Clean and had great beds and rain showers. The key cards were great and the lockers a perfect size for valuables. Breakfast was nice and the coffee/tea was great all day.


One of the best hostels I've ever seen. Really clean and safe, the staff was really nice and helpful and booked our trip to Thailand directly from there. The private room is small but really clean and strong AC. Really good location in the centre and close to the best places to eat real food (Chinatown/ little India) it has a decent breakfast with toasts and fruit. The bathroom is clean and nice too.I would stay again for sure.


It's a very good location. The staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was nice and plenty of common areas where you can meet people or enjoying yourself. The building was old but the renovation and decoration was great. Wooden floor and thin walls might be the only weakness there.

Fantastic hostel. We took our 4 children ages 7-13 and stayed in the 6 room dorm. Staff was very helpful and kind. We had a very difficult time finding the hostel but called and the staff came and met us on the street corner. We loved staying in Little India, especially the night markets on the next street. Enjoyed discovering street art and the Jetties which were all within a 10 minute walking distance. We parked our car for two days and paid the street "attendant" 5RM to keep our car safe.

nice and clean hostel with free local breakfast, wifi, maps, friendly staff etc. The room you can book on hostelworld is the most expensive one of the hostel, and way more expensive than the average price of the area: it would be cheaper not to book anything and to just walk in (or in any other hostel around).


This place was nice enough. They have a good eye for esthetics but the dorm rooms are crapped. I think even Spiderman himself would have a hard time getting up to the top bunk.
