    The staff was so nice and very helpful! It is close to an MRT station so getting around is quite easy. The air con worked really well. Overall, good stay.

    Clean hostel, enjoyed our stay. There was queues most morning for the showers and toilets but wasn’t an issue. The staff were really helpful and kind, nice gesture of breakfast in a morning of toast with butter, choc spread or peanut butter. Location is good and not far from the MRT and super easy to get around, near to restaurants. Would recommend here.

    Vert good hostel at a walking distance from Little India. Beds are comfy, amenities such as slippers and earplugs are provided for free which great! Toilets and showers are in the same cabin and there are only 2 so that is not really good especially as there is always water on the floor when going to the toilets. Apart from that, great stay and nice staff.

    So far a ok Hostel. Only the main dorm face the main street, and it was very noisy to sleep there. the conditioner was much to cold, and they did not turn it down a bit, even after I reclaimed. the office place is chilled and good.

    Met some friendly people while there. Under new management a couple months back and they are working hard to improve the place. The upstairs dorms require going outside and then up a stairwell. Outdoor bathrooms. Cool A/C all day long in the rooms was great.

    Very basic hostel. If price is your only priority, this is the hostel for you. No real common area. Close to the metro to take in and out of downtown, otherwise kind of far from everything. The owner is absolutely lovely and makes this hostel better though!

    Bare bones hostel with wooden bunk beds. Free toast and no name chocolate spread and peanut butter as well as instant coffee in the morning. Good for one night but wouldn't want to use the toilet/shower combination unless I really had to. No complains for that price though.

    Very friendly service from workers and they provide breakfast as well as clean sheets. Pictures are not up to date so we were disappointed by the bathroom and shower situation. There were also cockroaches.

    Gap year staff were nice, due to staying three nights when no other bookings we were given key to room our rooms had two door access, so that was nice. Photos on site are clearly when hostel opened. Our room was so small, not enough room to place backpack beside bed and wall. Basic toilet facilities. Was given slipper pack which was nice. Hostel close to two MRT stations and 24hr food restaurant that was pretty decent.

    DO NOT STAY HERE!!! Firstly - they used my credit card to put through two transactions which came to the amount of over £200 without my permission, they applied a 10% credit card charge as opposed to 3... they simply do what they like at your expense! The supervisor and one of the other works are two of the most rudest people I have ever met in life and have NO customer service skills! They also can’t do laundry- they leave it out for anyone to collect and mess it up, not worth it!!
