    Staffs were very pleasant. I love how they have a laundry service for $10. Give them your pile of dirty laundry and they will clean and fold for you by the end of the day. But most of all, the staff helped me find change for me to have enough money to ride the metro at the end. If it wasn't for their generosity, I would have ended up riding a Grab (like Uber) to the airport.

    Another stay at Tribe Theory - and I am sure i will return again sometime. Very friendly and helpful staff. The capsule beds are superb - let's face it you will be busy around Singapore and only need a good bed, a safe and clean place in a good location at a good price and here you have it ! Great place - really easy to stay here. Thank you team for making my stay so comfortable again.

    Very helpful staff. Good dorm rooms, good internet, decent breakfast, opportunities to meet other entrepreneurs, good location. Only issue is that bathroom is downstairs so you have to come down from your room to use. Slightly expensive. I would stay here again.

    Good hostel. Great location in the city center but in a more trendy chill area with nice places to eat at night. It’s about a 7-8 minutes walk from 3 different metro lines which makes it easy to explore. If you are working while traveling, it has a cool community, a working room (small, but ok), and tools. If you’re just traveling, you might find it hard to meet buddies. Room is clean but very small. Bathroom is fine but nothing more. Free towels is nice!

    We had a really good stay here and the location was brilliant! You could walk 20 mins into the city or get a grab real cheap. Our only downfalls were that the rooms are very cramped and hot.

    This place is nice enough but it is basic. The beds are really hard and the showers horrible. Considering they make you take your shoes off at reception I’d expect it to be cleaner. Not nice walking around barefoot! The shower room is mixed and the door always open so you can see right out to the front door. The staff are nice and try to include you in the networking events. It’s good if you want can sleep anywhere, but I won’t be back.

    Book this place at your own risk. This is probably one of the worst hostels i've ever seen. Arrived to a dirty bed with hair on the bedsheet(looks like pubic hair to me). Smelly room. Outdated amenities. Have to say I will not go back.

    Worst hostel experiences I have had in my entire life. The pictures make it look brighter/ spacious than it actually is. When you enter, there is a narrow hall that took me to my room. I had a shared was one of the smallest rooms I have been in. My bed was behind the door, so every time someone entered the room, it would hit the bed. Once I reviewed the living situation, I immediately went to the front and requested a refund for 2/3 nights. They refused. Not a real 'startup' hostel.
