    Great stay at the Golden Hostel. Owner was a fantastic host. Was only to keen to offer advice and tips on where to go and where to eat. He really goes that extra mile to make sure you have a great stay. Hostel is located 200m from bus stop so very easy to access the city. Lots of conveniance stores by hostel and a food court. Highly recommend if you want to stay on budget 😊.

    This is the best hostel in Singapore! The cleanliness is superb. I am a neat and tidy person and I don't like messy place. And this hostel is very clean and tidy. The owner cleans it every day. I stayed in the female dorm, and it was very comfortable. The owner is very friendly. The aunty reminds me of my mom. It really really makes me feel like home.

    Great location and good place to stay. Bus stops right outside and walking distance to trains with hawker centre and supermarket in the same complex. Facilities were basic but it was clean and comfortable. Only negative was that the manager was quite disorganised and made us move rooms during our stay so I'm not sure if I'd stay again because of the inconvenience of that.

    The hostel itself is good. The guy from the reception is great (sorry I don't remember the name) - very helpful, talkative and has many, many tips for visiting Singapore (and feels real fascination for it). Location isn't perfect but ok, even for walking. Rooms, breakfasts, bathrooms - I would say they were plain. Lack of common area.

    Hostel owner was very friendly and kind to help. However it doesn't have a backpacker hostel vibe. Come here if u wanna just chill and have a cheap and affordable stay, but not for socializing and meeting other backpackers. Nice stay overall.

    Staff are very friendly, even going to the effort of booking taxis and ensuring we knew how to get around during our stay. Unfortunately we had booked 3 beds in a 4 bed dorm but our group was split into different rooms which wasn't ideal. There is a lack of communal area inside the hostel so hard to meet other people. Location is very good, right next to a bus stop and there is restaurants and a 24hour shop next door

    This is a really simple hostel. While the auntie that runs the hostel is very helpful and friendly, the facilities and the dorm rooms are small and cramped. I'm glad there are no bunk beds though. The bathrooms don't have working hand bidets and are always super wet on the floor. Once I found the toilet was completely sprayed with urine (not even a dog would pee like that) and I couldn't use it. Don't stay here if you don't feel comfortable using bathrooms with all genders (and many people).

    So, one of the worst hostel I have been to in my entire life, several things : MOST IMPORTANT : the manager was so mean, she made me understand I was bothering her when I checked in, she acted like I was a burden when I asked questions about the area, she doesn't speak a word of english, she got mad at me for asking if I could leave my backpack at the hostel to go get food for a 2 hours when I checked out. Plz Fire her. And it feels more like a homeless shelter than a hostel (no window !).
