It is good but the place is a little squeezy. There are no living room to relax and mingle around. No kitchen to cook simple meal like instant noodles. But the location is good.


Maybe royal can fix a bathroom and wifi at lv4

I emailed ahead twice to verify there was a woman's dorm room, but when I got there, there was none. Staff were great. Bathrooms, especially showers, could be better.


Located in the middle of Chinatown with very close distance to the Chinatown station. I was lucky who got a bed far away from the windows so I did not experience any disturbing noices. Personal is friendly. Breakfast is quite minimal, toasted bread, butter, marmelade, and some coconut-ish spread. Loved that there was snacks and coffee/tea always available. Personally i did not get that good of a feel for the atmosphere, it was a bit too cramped.


We got a twin bedroom without window which we never would have booked if we had known. The facilities were dirty and tiny and shared bathrooms for men and women. No privacy and no cleanliness at all in the amenities. Breakfast was bad: toast without a toaster, instant coffee, jam and thats it. The staff were friendlier to Asian people than to us and not really helpful with questions and enquiries. The only positive things: the wifi reception was good and the location was quite nice. Never again!


I'm Enjoy to stay here, near to city and MRT station

One of the best I´ve stayed in so far! The beds are very comfortable and everything is very clean. The bathrooms are a bit small but it´s not bad! I will definitively come back some time!


The place is not as good as its website try to convey.
