The hostel is really nice. However the room was too small for 6 people. There was nos space for beds and lugagge in the room for six people. The place was really clean. However, you were asked to walk with bare foot including in the restroom which i consider totally inapropriate considering that we were in a hostel.


A decent hostel in a great location. Free bread and coffee 24h! Would stay here again.


Conveniently located in China Town. At walking distance from Parliament and Marina Bay, not even far from Marina Bay Sand Hotel or the Central Finance DIstrict. Friendly staff. Facilities are very clean and have open windows for fresh air. Lots of kaya toast, milk tea and duck around the corner.


Overall good but it's a bit more expensive than some other options in Chinatown and I don't think you get more for the extra dollars. 12 man dorm was very crammed.


Very good location in Chinatown, close to food street, transport and temples. Also very good directions on hostelworld website for getting to the hostel. We were in an 8 bed dorm that was very cramped. The room was better suited to a four bed dorm. Lockers in the corridor are good but can only fit a small bag meaning the dorms were even more cramped with people's luggage. Very loud at night and air-con set very cold in our room. Only stayed one night, not much sleep.


Very friendly staff, great location.


The rooms, showers and toilets are all very small but they are very clean. Its good for a short stay.


feel great! i will choose here next time

This hostel has a nice location (Chinatown) and is closed to the MRT. The staff provided good information to do sightseeings, is very friendly and had very good english skills.


I chose this hostel because previous reviews indicated it had a good atmosphere for meeting other Travellers - this was not at all the case. While the bedrooms were very clean and comfortable with good a/c, showers were disgusting with mildew slime on the walls. I returned late one night and quietly heated some leftover food - the night staff told me I could stay and use the kitchen but could not have the light on so I did so in pitch dark. The cleaning lady seems overworked


Brilliant location. Friendly staff, very clean. Would stay again


Lockers available with a deposit. Laundry is $10 for a small basket. 2min from China Town MRT. Cheap eats nearby for $SG 5


It's my third time on this hostel and I can say that every stay is definitely worth it. Location is perfect! Especially now that there is a Down Town line that brings you straight to Marina / Bugis / Bay area. Staff are really friendly and very helpful! However they should be more strict on implementing the no food policy inside the rooms. Our room was really messy that time. 24-hour free toast is really handy! :) definitely would stay here again.


very quiet!! clean!! but the shower room is really small and tiny.


Hostel has good atmosphere but cramped sleep quarters. Price is too high for the experience received but staff were very friendly.


good hostel. not much space in the rooms and showers tough. Staff was very friendly and the hostel is SUPER clean!


Well, surely felt I was back to good old college days 😃. It's a fun place to be with friends.
