No matter how many hostels i stay this one is good in terms of the location, not in a crowded noisy area, the rooms are nice, and the staff are friendly, and a overall great place to stay if you're open to making friends whilst at a hostel

Gene is so helpful, just ask her if you have any questions. She'll answer all of them and more! The sign for travel talk is really small, so don't expect a big one. BUT it is literally the door next door to 7/11 which helps to know.


Lack of 24 hour air conditioning, and a lack of a.c. in the common room, is a major complaint for me. I would not have stayed here if I was aware of that before hand.


She was the best! So nice and funny!

10 out of 10 hostel. Amazing Location, Staff, Facilities. Great ambiance in the lobby/living room, with nice music. Staff is always willing to help. The bathroom was super clean. I will definitely will come back to this hostel.


The hostel is pretty near the mrt which is good, however it is by the busy main road and may be a bit noisy for some. The aircon is available only between 8.30pm to 10am, hence it is not conducive if you like to rest in between the day. However, the owner is v cheerful and helpful and makes you feel welcome. Overall, it is a safe and clean place to stay at if you are on a tight budget.


The host is very friendly and attentive, we have all we need during the stay, value for money.


The staff there: Jean, Bee and Belly are super friendly especially Jean, she's willing to give you all the information about transportation or tourist attraction. We came back quite late every night but Jean even knock our door and instruct us where to get the bus to go to the airport, to prepare exactly amount to pay for the bus...It's really fun to talk to them. It's like a family there. Thanks for being so nice to us and other members. Highly recommend for a budget hostel.
