Its very accessible to different areas. Shurn, one of the staff is very accommodating. He is very helpful during our trip. Probably improve on the maintenance of the smell of the room, coz sometimes other people's mess gets left there thus leaving behind a smell. The bathroom is very clean and very well maintained.

Great Location, and a decent price. The rooms aren't truly 8 person or 10 person (they are separated via a curtain). The other thing is that this hostel seems to lend itself to watching youtube videos in the lobby with your headphone and not trying to communicate with other hostel stayers. It could've been the luck of the draw of who we had with us, but it didn't have great vibes. Breakfast was ok. Just bread/nutella. They usually ran out of bananas by the time I woke up.

Definitely not an exciting hostel by any means. Very budget but has everything you need close to the MRT.

Lots of ants all through the property, including the shower room. Toilet doors were broken, and woke up covered in ant bites!

Thank you for your feedback. Another fellow inconsiderate dorm mate has left food in the dorm hence explaining the prescence of ants in the dorm. It is stated clearly on the doors of all rooms that food and drinks are strictly prohibited in all dorms for the comfort of all guests. We have since cleaned up the room and the room is ants-free. A couple of ants were spotted in the toilet due to the indoor plants that are in place to provide some indoor greenery. We have since removed the plants.

The hostel is in a convenient location close to the MRT and the staff were really friendly and helpful. The hostel building reminded me of a crack den (think American Gangster), there were only 3 showers and 3 toilets for the whole hostel. Lockers were small and barely holding together. Privacy curtain only covered half of your bed and the beds were really squeaky. The worst bit was that the 10 bed is actually a 24 bed with half a wall separating them both. AVOID.

Thank you for your feedback. We will definitely check your locker and bed to rectify any issues. It is stated in the terms and conditions of your booking that we are located in a heritage shop house, hence the enterior of the building may not look as appealing as you expected it to be. Privacy curtains are meant to provide some privacy. They are not full length curtains to ensure that there is proper ventilation otherwise it may become too warm.

The staff at RCI are so helpful! They let us store our luggage until our flight the next day at 10pm and helped us arrange transportation to the airport. There is a very light breakfast in the morning which gives you a short boost of energy before hitting the city. The staff also provided recommendations for activities in Singapore. The common area is small but has couches and chairs for people to meet each other. The hostel is also near the MRT station so it is convenient to get around.

Staff were very friendly, appreciated the mini tour on arrival as a lot of hostels these days just leave you to it. The location is great, really close to eateries and MRT stations either way. The hostel is pretty snug, but not overly cramped. There are some sofas to chill on as well as the breakfast table. Breakfast is the usual hostel ingredients of toast and spreads plus a banana. Beds were ok, pillows was way too firm and uncomfortable. Overall I would say basic accommodation, over priced.
