We want to offer you a place to unwind, write your journal, talk to other travelers and share stories. We aim not only to provide a bed for the night, but a space for the exchange of ideas, inspirations, personal reflections and growth. Because that is what traveling is about.

    Good location, not too much of a backpacker vibe, but you can still meet people. Rooms are cool during the night.

    It was a great stay and the atmosphere there is the best , I met the best people there and it is a nice hostel for a stay but it is a bit expensive compared to other countries and it is exhausting to go up to the 4th floor on stairs and no breakfast provided otherwise I really enjoyed the stay there

    Friendly greeting from the staff when we arrived, accommodating and nice throughout our stay here. Good price for Singapore and good location, very close to China town and metro stations. Alot of people staying here that probably live here and work, but they keep themselves to themselves. Good/large showers, only 3 toilets but never had to queue, even though the hostel was full. Beds were comfy and air con throughout the night.

    Good choice for a place to stay for a short while. Nice staff and acceptable facilities. Location is great with lots of food nearby and Clarke Quay where you can pickup any extra things you may need. The train station is also close allowing for easy travel around Singapore. This place is lacking a social aspect, if you are looking for that this perhaps may not be the best choice, but on the positive side this also means it is a fairly quiet hostel. Overall good, affordable and worth the stay.

    The hostel is in a good position and clean, but nothing more. The reception is open at strange hours(till 11 am and from 4 pm), you can’t have any privacy because the staff leave room doors almost always open. Also the staff is pretty rude, entering the room in early morning to turn off the AC (they don’t leave the remote in the room), and waking you up hours before check out time. The price are too high for what you get.

    My problems with the hostel: - i come in at 23:00, an older half naked man is sleeping on the couch; no staff is present - a lot of men in the living room making all kinds of sounds - so much hair in the shower - showers barely lock - very inconvenient location to have the living room in between the shower and bed -> lot of half naked men walking around - sink is pretty much in the living room, kinda uncomfortable - flimsy blanket to sleep under; AC is cold - half a curtain on the bed

    Location is good but you have to pay a late fee if you arrive after 8pm which is a joke. You can’t lock your room door and if you do you can’t get back in without a heap of attitude. Staff will open the door early in the morning to turn off the AC and will walk into the room late at night, turn the light on to show people there rooms. Over priced for what you get

    The location and the availability for a locker in the room are probably the only good things about the stay. Staff are very rude, only 3 showers and 3 toilets for the whole hostel, absolutely no vibe so do not book if you are looking for a social place to chat to fellow travellers. The rooms have no windows and real dingy and smelly after everyone sleeping in them. Would not recommend.
