Host was nice, room was way overcrowded, shower and toilet was poor, two separate hostels in the same town named the same? Worth the 3 dollars a night to go elsewhere..


The location of this place is amazing, close to cheap food courts, Chinatown MRT station and all the other Chinatown attractions. That said there is only 1 bathroom between 12 beds so if the hostel was full this would be an issue. Bathroom was not particularly clean either. Would I stay here again YES as I still feel for the price it is ok and the location makes it worth it.


Superb location. Surely, one of the cheapest budget hostels in Singapore, particularly in regard to its central position in Chinatown, near MRT. Nowadays, everything in Singapore is so expensive; so to have an inexpensive holiday, staying in this budget hostel is a must, and certainly can enjoy the ambience and cheap food in Chinatown.


This is my second visit in Singapore but my first time with Service World. Definitely an idea location with food joints directly located opposite the hostel.Chinatown is a historical & tourist side, this is one of the reason why i choose here. I'm into Chinese culture especially Singapore! Transportation is easily accessible & plus bonus, there is a laundry shop directly below the hostel. I would definitely recommend this hostel with my friends and travel mates. Thumbs up & definitely recommend

I was a little surprised by the hostel, as it was in a strip mall on the second level, with the rooms in a different location than the lobby. There were about eight beds in a room, separated by a couple of curtains, with a couch in the middle, a bathroom, and not really a big space for a common area. No food service that I was aware of, but it was very close to several food joints and coffee shops, and also the Buddha Tooth temple (the rest of the city is pretty small, so you can walk it easy).
