    Nice social area/atmosphere. Clean. Lockers. Shared shower facilities. It is a 3 floor walk up so those with heavy luggage may have a tough go.

    At first I was stunned by the rules that I have learnt at reception of the hotel, but later with their co-operation I understood that these are there just to make us aware. Be careful you need to carry locker and hostel entry keys with you whenever you go out. Food: 1 Banana ( Not sufficient for Breakfast) Bread and Jams: Its at satisfactory level Crowd: I found that multi ethnic and multi cultural crowd lives here.( No issue for me) Cost: Although the cost here for one night was on higher side

    Location is great. It is right on the Clarke Quay MRT train system and close to Boat Quay, ChinaTown, Marina Bay Sands , etc. Very clean and efficiently run. Dorms are well set-up with lockable lockers. The hostel is relatively small with only a few beds and a small common area/relax space. All-in-all, happy with the stay!

    I don’t like being charged 5% for credit cards. 3% seems reasonable, but the extra 2% feels like it’s being used as an opportunity to make money. The front desk person auto charged my card in USD, which I did not appreciate one bit. Lastly there was a 16 bed room and a 10 bed room, and it felt dishonest to me that they were different rooms. I would not stay at a 26 bed dorm, but there is only a curtain between these “rooms” so really it’s a 26 bed dorm. Each room needs 1 door. Felt dishonest.

    This place is ok. It’s the smallest hostel I’ve ever stayed at. It has a very little common area. Pictures are deceiving as well because they had pics that show a bigger restaurant type space that doesn’t exist. They turn the ac off in the dorms during the day and ac of in common areas at night. It’s always hot somewhere. They also charge an extra 5% for credit which is crazy! I’m used to paying 2-3% and mostly in poorer countries which is understandable but Singapore is NOT a poor country!
