    Great location, it’s right on the river with lots of bars and restaurants around it. That is definitely the main appeal. The facilities were fine, and there were self check-in kiosks, so I didn’t really encounter any staff members. Not much atmosphere either. If you are looking to meet other travelers, I would try a different place.

    This hostel is very well located, clean and comfortable rooms with friendly staff. But there is no atmosphere. Still for Singaporean standards, not bad value for money. If only the staff organised social activities, this hostel would be something special.

    Perfect example of good intentions but bad execution. Been a company that owns so hostels, sometimes the little-big details gets forgotten; lack of service, when you check in, the first thing you see is a machine... not a real person to say welcome, although is a reception at the next door, not really that helpful, they seem to dont care that much. You can tell that the room furniture is a bit damaged. Positive things, good location and kinda cheep for Singapore.Enough for a budget backpacker.

    This hostel was in an amazing location, and had a beautiful view over the river. There is a check in desk, however, it is not open for long, and the staff can be hard to find. However, it was very clean and the beds were comfy and had curtains over the beds.

    Very Good

    One of the weirder hostels I've been to: checked in using a kiosk, got help using a phone in their reception area, and I think I saw a total of two employees the whole 4 nights I was there - the poster child of no-frills hostels. Location is good, especially if you like exploring on foot. Nothing to write home about, but if you're doing Singapore on a budget, it's a good alternative to the pricier places in town.

    On arrival there is a self check in desk, rather than a reception. We saw no staff throughout our whole stay, and only a notice board to introduce us to Singapore. The room was clean and had AC which was a god send. The location was brilliant near to bars, MRT station and has a 7/11 outside which is 24/7. Not a very communal atmosphere really however we only stayed for 2 days so didn’t really have chance to get to see people.

    The location of this hostel was excellent. Unfortunately, the hostel itself was disappointing. You have to check in electronically and this means it is easy to miss the room number! We did eventually find a reception but there is rarely any staff there. The signage is awful so we spent a lot of time in the hostel trying to find room. There is also a lack of cleanliness. The toilets were often blocked and there is only three female showers for the whole (large) hostel which becomes difficult.

    The bathrooms were horrible. I felt dirtier after showering. Smelly, no ventilation, hair in the drains, no thought about where to put stuff when showering, broken taps and rails. The bedroom was also smelly, like mould, although the bed was reasonably comfortable and the sheets were clean. The rooms are like a rabbit warren and there's not a toilet close by. The location is good, but noisey, beware if you can't sleep with earplugs in.

    It is the worst hostel I ever stay. The room/bed, toilets are disgusting and staff are untrained about customer service oriented. Never stay again

    There's no staff working after 4pm, we had to self check in. We booked the 4 dorm superior room. The AC was broken so it was extremely hot. The windows faced the street, you could hear everything going on at the bars and restaurants below. All of the lockers in the room were broken making it impossible to store our bags securely. My sheets had a significant amount of stains on them. We stayed for about two hours and all decided it was best to book a different hostel.
