It was too warm in the dorm room during the night. A single fan pointing into one direction in the middle of the room just doesn't cut the cheese. Other than that I really liked this place.

The cleaning of the floors and bedding really needs improved it was disgusting. If they don’t want the windows open while the aircon is on (obviously) they need a switch or remote available for people to be able to turn off the aircon so they can get fresh air through the room rather than come in and throw a small tantrum. The staff were friendly except the female staff member who gave off a very unwelcoming vibe.

A bit outside the city but a good hostel with nice atmosphere and all that you need. As you’re in one of the cities in the world with the best public transport the fact you’re a bit outside the city isn’t that much of a big deal.

Pros: Friendly staff, 24 hr reception, fruit available at breakfast (mostly just toast at other hostels, toast available here too), good atmosphere, cheap. Cons: AC barely worked in our room making for a difficult night's sleep, cramped showers, location not near major sites. It was fine for a night but knowing other options in the city, I'll stay elsewhere.

Have stayed here a couple of times and never disappoints me. Helpful staff, good breakfast, chillout atmosphere, and a very nice common room.

Character limit too low for full review. Highlights: 20-person dorm has feel of gutted industrial kitchen w/ 10 bunk beds. Shower/bathroom situation abysmal (2 tiny, dirty showers in the 20-person room, 1 toilet w/ room doubling as 3rd shower). Security lockers tiny. Location bad (20 minute walk from nearest MRT, not close to downtown). People clearly living in hostel. Bad smells. Staff not very friendly. Weak atmosphere. Noisy clubs downstairs. Rating way too high, but you get what you pay for.
