    I didn’t spend a ton of time hanging out at the actually hostel but loved my stay here. It was easy to meet people and the location was perfect. You’re not too far from beach Drive via Grab and your directly next to a train line. This made getting around easy and affordable.

    The hostel was overall nice and felt very secure, but there wasn’t much for a social atmosphere. This isn’t the hostels fault, but the hostel etiquette in the girls dorm I was in was horrible. Some girls were talking loudly in the room at 11:45pm, and then the next two mornings girls were packing their bags IN the room and talking at 5:30 and 6:30 in the morning rather than going out into the hallway. Maybe need signs in the room with the quiet hours boldly posted??

    There’s only one problem with this hostel. The age restriction mentioned doesn’t exist. Lots of family, definitely not a place to party. Besides that everything is really perfect.

    This Property is a good option for people who are visiting Singapore as a tourist. Pros- 1) Location - a short walk from Lavender MRT station 2) Clean rooms and bathrooms Cons - 1) The hostel rooms on the left can be maintained better 2) Ironing board and Bathing area can be cleaned more often 3) Every guest should be given their locker closer to their bed

    Very good facilities, clean room and bathroom. Cool breakfast, pretty nice staff and a very beautiful rooftop place to chill with some cheap sold Tiger beers from the hostel.

    Overall, a good place to stay in Singapore! A lot of public transport options available. Maybe 25-30 min walk to Little India and Haji Lane area! Staff was very helpful throughout the whole stay! That being said, you can tell its an older building, not the best facilities and not the cleanest! Also, its not much of a youth hostel, its more of a hostel for everybody! a lot of families with their younger kids or elder people staying there. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it gets very crowded!

    I only stayed here one night but compared to my other hostel this was just not as good for the social side and friendliness of staff. The shower and toilet was clean. The bed blanket was too short so my feet where sticking out (my height is 169cm / 5.5 feet) so I had to use my towel as well. The AC was on too strong and cold and unchangeable as the remote was not provided. However the bed and pillow was comfy. My stay was okay for how cheap it was but would recommend asking for two blankets.

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.
