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.


Very clean and good located, the staff there are all very nice. They have food in the small kitchen all the time which is very convenient. atmosphere is average but we can't ask for all. Good to stay!


The hostel is located in the heart of Chinatown and close to the MRT, which makes it easy to travel around the city. The staff was kind and very helpful. The facilities were clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone going to Singapore.
