The location is perfect with easy access to Chinatown, and it takes only 15 to 20 mintues to walk to Clarke Quay. The owner, Andrew is very nice and willing to help. It would be much better if the room had a window.


Great location... Super fast wifi... on top of 24hr supermarket... Beds were good... AC.. tiny common area and i only saw one shower.. fairly clean.. The owner is a lovely and very interesting guy to talk to... I would recommend this place


Nice clean hostel handy to food halls & a 24hour supermarket on the ground floor,the owner Andrew was very helpful.

Very small hostel near Chinatown MRT. When I arrived I had trouble getting in, as the door to the reception on the 2nd floor was locked and no one answered the phone. Found some people near the entrance on the 3rd floor who welcomed me in. Everyone I met was friendly. The bed in the dorm was comfortable and there was AC. There was only one bathroom, which is not enough as it got crowded in the morning. Good place to crash, but I would not stay there for more than one night.
