    Great stay in Singapore. The female staff was friendly and helpful, each bed came with a PowerPoint and a light. The shared area and showers are always clean.

    Location is great as it’s super close to Clarke Quay MRT and also the Quay area is amazing and lively and all an easy walk from the hostel. Loved our stay here the staff was super nice and the guests were all great people too. Bathrooms were clean and not crowded. Only negative was the fact that there is not 24 hour reception (you have to pay extra to check in after midnight) and the top bunks don’t come with a curtain but would 100% stay here again.

    Perfect. We stayed in private 4 bed dorm. Beds were comfortable with curtains on lower bunks and personal lights and plugs. Nice sociable living area. Good bathrooms and showers but they are behind reception so need to walk past breakfast area in morning. Staff were very nice and helpful. Would stay again

    Good hostel, good location near public transportation. Staff is friendly and the facilities make do. Free breakfast is a plus. A little overpriced (as are most hostels in Singapore) and not very social.

    Good location, cheap, strong WiFi, lockers and storage for bags. But I hardly slept because it was so loud. The hostel is very small and the rooms share walls with the common areas. There are signs saying it’s quiet time after 11pm but no one enforced this and I was miserable and unable to sleep until 1am, and then was consistently woken up. It would have been nice for staff to ask other guests to go to a bar or somewhere after a certain time. beds are also exposed with only a flimsy curtain.

    Location was great. Within walking distance of many things! Hostel itself was just okay. Located on 4th floor with no lift, so hauling all of our bags up was not pleasant. They only have 3 toilets and 3 showers for everyone to share. They were cramped, musty, and dirty. They charge $3 US for a shower towel that didn’t smell clean. Beds and rooms need a deep clean. Beds were not very comfortable and the WiFi was slow. They are very strict about not wearing shoes in the hostel- it was very odd.
