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.

Jean was a fantastic host. The hostel was easy to find and close to MRT station. Personally, I found the pillow and mattress too flat and soft.


The owner is very nice and helpful. Good location, near the MRT and under an hour to the airport. It does lose a few points for the number of mosquitoes and the one roach i found in my room. However, a good place.
