Located in Chinatown, located in front of hawkers. Friendly staff and the best place was good. However, it is regrettable common area is narrow, the number of shower is few.


Dorms/beds/lockers still good, though I suspect they didn't change the sheets w/ new ones for me at the time I checked in.Toilets in Dorm2 need an upgrade---shower heads leak (spraying from the side instead of the nozzle), vinyl folding doors of the toilet stall are torn (prying eyes!), somebody please scrub the bathroom/toilet walls w/ bleach (mildew!).A/C is 1 of the best amenities (turns on early, shuts off late next morning).Every 1 is hushed (no drunken gap-year chattering in the dorm).ü


I was very hapy with my stay, the staff ere very helpful, the room air con was super efficient, and security lockers very handy. The only issue that I had was the lack of staff for early check out, which meant that unless you returned your key card prior to 9 PM the night prior you would forfeit your $10 deposit if you departed before office staff arrived at 9 AM.


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
