Overall I enjoyed my stay at this little hostel. The only downside is the location could be a little closer to the downtown area, but it's not a huge deal. Aside from that the people were great but it's not a party hostel so you can still get to sleep when you need to. Would recommend!

Apartment converted to hostel. Cozy as everyone said, easy to mingle and meet people, can be crowded if people have much luggage. Easy to reach via shuttle from Changi, 9$, and to downtown via bus 2$ one way cash only no change given. The free bread and Nutella and jam was really good, highly appreciated. Good value overall despite the distance from the main attractions.

Basic but functional. Has the feeling of a small apartment. Chill out area small but better than other hostels. Nice vibe. A little further out than other places but close to bus routes. All day breakfast amazing.

Really lovely hostel! Comfy beds, helpful volunteers and very clean. There's was also unlimited toast and topping which was appreciated! We liked the friendly vibe of the hostel and it is an easy place to make friends where it is small and homely. Easy to get into town with the metro.

Cute little hostel, free toast breakfast, very helpful and friendly staff, ask about the offers they have for attractions around the city. You will need to bus/skytrain to go anywhere though, and not hot water. Good ac strong wifi

Small but friendly hostel. Comfortable beds, cold AC, hot showers. Has wash/dry self service. Not really close to anything, 15+ minute walk to transit station. Friendly staff, good place to meet others but certainly not a party hostel. Could be a bit cleaner but overall it was a great stay. Lots of food within a 30 second walk.

Great stay! The staff was amazing, and the hostel itself was cozy and very homey, which is quite welcome for a solo traveller on a long trip. The rooms were clean, facilities were functioning and the overall environment was great. The only real downside is that it's a little bit off the centre of town, being Marina Bay. By foot, it would take about 45 minutes to an hour to get there, but it's a nice, scenic walk, so no big deal. Highly recommend!

Location: As I liked China Town much more than Little India (the area not really clean and I found the market more expensive than China town) , I was really happy to end up with choosing Happy Snail. Most of the attractions are close,either with transportation or by walk (if you are fan of walking like me for 10-15kms) There is an ATM and a store where u can buy drinks, snacks as well. Hostel:Clean, but it's mostly depending on the volunteers who are working in the hostel that period.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Location is good, about a 15/20 minute walk to chinatown. Didn't use the mrt but the stop is about 15 min walk away. Bus stop directly outside. The place was very clean with nice hot showers. Free tea, coffee, toast and nutella all day long! Staff not there all day so you're free to come and go as you please. They send you info on how to access the place if no one is there and a welcome note will be left. Good atmosphere there with other travellers. Great value!
