Nice location by Chinatown and easy walk from MRT. Secure building with lockers. Rooms were small with very thin walls so if you're a light sleeper, it may be difficult to sleep if it's loud. Also there were no windows so it made it difficult to wake up in the morning. Overall, decent place if you just want a cheap place in a good location.
One of the underrated backpackers hostel. Recommended for those who are staying less than a week. It's understandably cheap given the limited facilities but for the price per night, it is very much worth it. Though there can be some improvements to make (as do any other hostels) but overall satisfied with this particular hostel for their good-mannered and helpful staff.

Average hostel, rooms are small and facilities were not that clean. But the location is excellent, and you can use a locker in your room and the front door has a code. Friendly staff.
It's a good value for money guesthouse with an excellent location. The staff were all friendly and welcoming. Sure, the rooms are small cubicles with thin walls and barely enough space for your belongings and yourself but that's the standard in budget places. What separates this from the other places in the area I've overnighted in is the cleanliness of the place, decent bed, hot water in the shower and a reliable WiFi connection. The only real downside is that the rooms get hot during the night
This hostel is best places to stay, central location, close to chaina townn, accessible to transport. I remember ot stay here. Value for money. I will stay here only.

Very basic, but entertaining stay. It's the people that make the place - and there was a decent crowd. Terrace outside is perfect for chatting or playing cards after a hot and humid day.
Cheap and cheerful. Staff helpful when asked . Good location
Decent place for what you pay and right near china town. The bed was comfy, toilet as showers were decent. Breakfast was a bit lacking, only toast but did the job. Staff were nice and a really helpful guy staying there who recommended places to go and offered help if I missed my onward train. Would be nice of there was a lock on the dorm, but only for peace of mind, there were no issues with security while I was there. I would stay here again.
No complaints. You get what you pay for. Simple, small rooms. Noise level depends on neighbours / house mates, for me was quiet. Toilets are clean. Might be difficult to enter hostel for new guests, because door is protected by security code. Need to wait until staff sees you and opens door. A clear bell would be helpful. Free Coffee was very tasty: Better that the usual instant crap. Overall satisfied.
