Stayed here for 2 nights and I loved it. The beds were well maintained, clean and very comfortable. The toilets and shower areas were exceptionally clean as well. Staff were really nice and cheerful. I didn't go for their breakfast because only toast was provided but there are plenty of good options just outside of the hostel. Excellent location - Chinatown MRT is just round the corner. I would definitely stay here again.


Staff are awesome. Location is excellent. Best showers in any hostel in Singapore - ladies you can wash your hair! Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to all.


Well located right in the heart of Chinatown. The hostel looks like it is either new or recently renovated, with great and well maintained common spaces and bathrooms. Though not overwhelmingly social, it was enough for me to meet a few people to see the city with.


Definitely the location was amazing. Right in the heart of Chinatown were you can find lots of cheap stuffs and food. The staff are very helpful of answering our questions and you can never go wrong with free breakfast. No doubt I will stay in this hostel on my next visit to Singapore.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Hostel is quiet and has a very homely feel to it. Conveniently located in Chinatown. Free peanut butter and jam on bread 24/7 is a plus!


Stayed here for three nights during my visit in Singapore. Really liked this hostel. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. They were always willing to help out if you needed something and spoke very good English. The hostel was clean and smelt really good. I think they were burning lemon grass to keep Mosquitos away. Free wifi in all rooms which was great and laundry service which was a little expensive but it's singapore so everything is expensive. I'd recommend this hostel and stay again

Very courteous and helpful staff! The staff was kind enough to be flexible with their cancellation policy and we were truly grateful for that.


Perfect location! Near Chinatown Metro station, exactly next to the famous Chinese Food Street and 2min walking distance from the Maxwell food hawker. The bathrooms are cleans, showers and toilets are separated in two different rooms. The bed and sheets were clean. No towel provided! All day toast/jam in the kitchenette. Not a party hostel, a relaxing point to rest and visit amazing Singapore.

A very good place to stay if you want to save some money when visiting Singapore. Public transport is really just round the corner. Worth to stay there again.


Everyone there was fantastic with the exception of one guy who works the desk at night. All the girls who work are amazing and when I had to check in late they were fantastic about accommodating me. The location is amazing and close to the MRT station, so it's easy to get anywhere you want to go. The common room makes it easy to meet people and food and drinking water is available all the time. I would stay there any time and would recommend it without reservation!


Where to begin with the issues - the hotel is unsafe (no locks for the dorms, no manned reception at night - only a simple code, so simple that a strange man all of a sudden came into the hostel in the middle of fhe night - quite scary), check in is extremely slow, no windows in the rooms, low cleanliness standards, very small common room and not a social atmosphere at all. Worst price/quality ratio to date. You can def. find better options.


Vey secure with code entry. Maybe a bit overkill to get into toilets but I understand why witht the building layout. No windows in rooms but aircon. Great helpful staff and atmosphere. Awesome location in Chinatown and near mrt station. Easy access from airport and train (long ride from airport but east)


Awesome place. Very helpful staff, right in the heart of Chinatown and maybe a 1 minute walk to the Chinatown MRT stop. Highly recommend this hostel.


Excellent location, in the heart of Chinatow. 1 min walk from metro. It's possible to leave your lugage and take a shower after check in, what is great for those with flights at night! Breakfast is ok, basically toasts, butter and jam, but you can eat anytime and as much as yyyou want.


It's a great place! I had a wonderful time here meeting the awesome staffs and met some awesome roomies and def. will recommend it to everyone!(Note that 24h reception is changed, between 11pm-8am is the reception close) It's good value for its location and everything. Because Singapore is really crowded so the rooms don't have windows but do equipped with A/C and are disinfected regularly. I will certainly come back to this awesome place whenever I visut Singapore again.
