1. Toilet and bathroom are not sufficient as long queue waiting for shower. 2. Breakfast was same for 2 days. Maybe can add something others such as milk and cereals. Change better brand of coffee mix. 3. The mouse of the computer is too small. Maybe can change to a bigger one.

Really very very good location. (It is easy to go to most of the attractions in SG) The staff is helpful and friendly. But the space of common area and room is relatively small. In overall, it is good to stay in this hostel.

It's a nice, clean, hostel in a location that's within walking distance to the MRT. It just has a different vibe compared to a lot of other hostels I've stayed in. The guests didn't interact much and everyone kept to themselves... Not necessarily a bad thing, just don't expect to meet a lot of people here. Also, it's VERY hot in the room- even after the AirCon is turned on.

Location is convenient to many areas in Singapore. The hostel is clean and safe and provides good services. The staff is fine, but they seem to just want to talk amongst themselves rather than with guests. Overall a great hostel that I would (and have) stay in again.

Professionall place with very good staff. Long breakfast times, untill noon and the location is pretty perfect, because MRT and bus station around. It still is a fair package, when You keep in mind that Singapore has become one of the maybe priceist and wealthiest places on our planet. In addition to my last visit i was not overwhelmed that one floor above a sports club has opened. I could hear them jump and exercise, which is good for the athletes and office paper workers for shure;

Arrived at the hostel to a very friendly staff member who gave us directions to the zoo and a plethora of other information about the local attractions. Excellent location within a two-minute walk to the nearest metro. Upon returning to the hostel at the end of the day the atmosphere was very different. Two highly unhelpful, abrupt, and condescending staff members were there to greet us; every request we made for information was met with antipathy and rudeness. Bring back the original lady!

Good location and friendly atmosphere,while locate in 4th floor without a lift took me some effort to move my luggage.

5 min walk to mrt station (Clarke, NE line) is a huge advantage. Staff is thoughtful and professional, the only minus is they charge for everything (even for the 20-sec phone call to my friend in Singapore). The atmosphere was rather quite and not lively as other hostels I've been to but that's Singapore's way so I don't really mind it. The room and bathroom were absolutely clean and secure. I felt like home, definitely stay here again if I come back to Singapore.

Great hostel!

Decent enough place. Common area is pretty small, but at least socializing isn't discouraged. Staff were agreeable enough. Location is definitely a plus. 4 stairs up and no elevator is a bit of a pain sometimes, and the dorm got a bit too hot at night.

We stayed at three different hostels in Singapore, this place was good but there are better places to stay with better location for similar price. The staff were friendly and it seemed clean but it was 3 floors up which is difficult with heavy rucksacks.

Pretty good hostel, right next to Clark Quay which is an awesome location in Singapore. Next to MRT as well which is convenient. I wouldn't recommend the 22 bed dorm though - it's a lot and there are 0 partitions or anything, just beds right next to beds. Common area is nice though abs they have free toast and fruit in the mornings. Overall it was nice, Singapore sucks though, crazy expensive city.

Nice hostel, very clean. The 4-bed dorm is a little small, but the large dorm is very spacious. Free breakfast is nice, only thing that is a bit odd is that you have to walk through the common area and kitchen to get to the bathroom. And the sinks for brushing teeth etc. are in the middle of the common area. Plus, key deposit is a bit high (20SGD).

Rover City in was in a great location, comfortable beds though they turned the aircon off at 9am every morning in the 24 bed dorm with the sun coming in on the windows making it like a sauna by 9:15am. Many asked staff multiple times to keen it on longer but nothing changed in the 7 nights i was there.
