    Beds are super comfortable, they are big, they have new mattresses, electricity sockets, light and curtains. There are lots of toilets and showers, including soap, shampoo and hair dryers. Nice big common room. You have drinkable water to refill your bottle. We stayed only one night, but we would have like to stay more. Definitely recommended.

    Excellent location! I loved the view from the window in the lobby! Besides, the lobby is big and nice. The staff is helpful, the volunteers were the best!! The rooms are great, each bed is separated by tiny walls and curtains so you have your privacy. The lockers are VERY BIG, I could fit my crazy big backbag into it + other things. The only strange thing: you are required to wait downstairs, in the entrance hall, till someone from the staff comes down and picks you up.

    Staff (A+) must escort you to hostel (on 4th floor) due to bldg rules. Nice lounge. Bathroom is pretty clean but can get quite damp (air/floor). Beds are secured, no wobbling, has drapes for privacy, lighting and 2 personal outlets; but the coed 20-bedroom relies on earplugs and all roommates to be considerate for a good night sleep (which I had, luckily). Good wifi in room and lounge. Paid: laundry/dryer. Free: hairdryer, locker, milk tea/cocoa/coffee, and toast for breakfast.

    This hostel is good with a great staff there are staff that are available 24/7 to help you and have deep conversation with you. There was clean rooms and professional lounge. Staff comes down to escort you to the floor for security and the rooms have locks. You get a personal lockable locker too. So it is safe. The closest MRT is 3 blocks away do’s it’s a good location. Sadly all they had in their complimentary breakfast was bread and jelly. Also , the drier was broken. Otherwise a good spot!

    Short walk from the main station, brand new furniture, clean toilets and bedding, dark curtains for privacy. It would be a 10/10, but the fact that it's inside of an office building and requires guests to wait at the ground floor for the staff to pick them up EVERYTIME that they wanna enter the hostel is a big turn-off. Going to the toilets is also inconvenient because it means walking through the building corridor wearing undies.

    Having the extra security to get down the elevators was quite annoying. Also the bar closes by 8:30pm?? Otherwise it was good.

    The toilet was in awful condition, even worst we need to wait for someone to take we go up and it was very troublesome for receptionist to pick up us every single time. It makes me comfortable to go out every time by thinking this thing would happen. Overall, worth for money, location not so strategic to other attractions places as per described, bed is good and spacey.
