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.

In order to upkeep the security of the hostel, visitors are only allowed to hang out in the living area. The guest brought his friend into the dorms and our staff stopped them politely, explaining the rational. The guest ignored the staff and brought his friend into the dorm to hang out and take pictures, making it difficult for the staff on duty.

Good location. Lockers were very flimsy in the dorms and disliked having to leave shoes outside although fine with taking them off. No atmosphere whatsoever and full of what seemed to be school students. So no social scene at all. Was fairly clean except hair always in the bathrooms. Staff were silent apart from one person who was screaming loud words all the time?? Recommend you stay elsewhere in Singapore. Building also looks really dodgy from outside.

It is stated clearly in the terms and conditions of your booking that footwear is not allowed indoors except in the toilets in order to upkeep the cleanliness of the hostel for all guests. Our staff do our best to assist guests whenever they need help or directions. The atmosphere of the hostel is largely dependent on the backpackers crowd which is often beyond our control. In order to upkeep the atmosphere of the hostel, we do not accept guests below the age of 12.
