    The staff is really kind, ready to help anytime. Cleaning is done daily and carefully. Free coffee and tea, some breakfast with orange! I stayed in 12 bed female dormitory and actually it was really quiet. I didn't have the right currency on arrival and they offered me to just chill, have a breakfast and go to the ATM after. Anything you ask they are helping you, what else do you need?

    Fabulous

    26 Jan 2020
    Pros: * I felt very safe here, even though it was not a high-end neighborhood * It was surprisingly quiet for sleeping, even though on a busy street, due to the capsule style of the beds in the dorms * Endless hot water with those big, rain-style showerheads * Nice rooftop area, where I enjoyed watching the swifts in the morning and listening to the mynas gather in the evening Cons: * I wouldn't call toast with a choice of 4 spreads "breakfast"

    This place is okay. Faults can be found in the beds being too small for larger (6ft2) people and room layout a bit cramped. The atmosphere is non-existent. But a cheap place to stay in Singapore for sure and bathrooms are a good standard.

    We only stayed at the hostel for one night, but we weren’t wowed by the experience. Two girls in a mixed dorm and we didn’t feel completely comfortable. The bathroom was open, which gave a cool effect, but also made it very hot and humid. Breakfast was included which was nice and walking around little India was really cute too. Overall it was fine, just not amazing. Next time I would probably book at a different hostel.

Rucksack Inn @Lavender Street (Green Kiwi) says

I'd say the most unique feature of our hostel is the rooftop garden. It's big, it's lush, and it's a great place to hang out, especially in the evenings when it's cooler. We can't help that it's hot in Singapore during the day, but you can sunbathe if you like.

Also, our breakfast puts us ahead of the rest. We provide a variety of spreads and breakfast lasts till 12.. or later! So you can sleep in! We also provide complimentary all day coffee and tea.

Singapore is quite a small island, with excellent public transport, and nothing is very far. We're in the city area, easily accessible from all the main tourist areas. We have the famous Lavender Street hawker centre just across the road, with heaps of cheap local food. I'd recommend two must-see free things: the URA's Singapore city gallery (three floors of scale models of the city) by day, and the four sections of Singapore River (Clarke Quay, Boat Quay, Marina Bay, Gardens by the Bay) by night.
