Had a great stay at Royal hostel. It has the perfect location, and you have chinatown just outside the door. Dorms where good with lockers and comfy beds. Only thing i was missing was a common area to relax and meet people.


We enjoyed our stay and extended it by an extra say. The only annoying thing was that reception was only open 11am till 7pm so if you were out for a whole day you often missed being able to speak to a member of staff.


Ein Hostel, dass seinen Zweck erfüllt bei dem man aber keine hohen Ansprüche mitbringen darf. Die Lage ist jedoch unschlagbar und wenn man eh nur zum übernachten da ist, kann ich es empfehlen! Von hier ist man super schnell in Marina Bay. Zufuß auch kein Problem!


Good location if you don’t mind the singing from the lounges/pubs nearby. Rooms and bathrooms/toilets are clean. Keypad with password access, but keypad to the upper level dormitory was not working, you could just opened the door by pulling on it. No pantry/kitchen area, there are hot/cold water dispensers though and reception will give breakfast voucher for eating at selected nearby local eateries. I like the fact that beds are partially shaded with curtains.


Having a locked storage room would be a big plus!!


A big Thx to the guy at the reception! He was very helpful and friendly!


I like Royal Hostel! It’s small, but a nice hostel! Could be a lot worse, the major advantage of it (and why I gave it a high score) is because it is very clean! (saying this since I am a bit picky otherwise). What could be fixed up is the bathrooms which are clean but not very good, i.e. small and not very nice. The girl (JOY) at the reception is very kind and nice!


For the value of the stay, they can have better bathrooms. Little bit disappointed.
