Positive Reviews

Easy Walk To Chinatown

The location of this hostel was one of the things guests appreciated most. They described it as centrally located and within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants and the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) links. They also appreciated the proximity to Chinatown and the Chinese Heritage Centre.

Good value for money

Singapore is notoriously expensive, guests said, and they appreciated the affordable option offered by this hostel. They found it generally clean and well maintained, said the staff was friendly and most felt it was a great way for anyone on a budget to visit Singapore.

Chill out

Weather in the region can leave visitors a bit hot under the collar and guests had high praise for the efficient air conditioning system. The cool quarters added greatly to guest comfort and to their overall positive impression of this facility.

Negative Reviews

Noisy At Night

These are dormitory style accommodations with only a curtain to separate sleepers and snoring and other nocturnal noises were a source of concern. There were also complaints about traffic noise and sounds of late night revelry.

Communal Living Not Everyone's Cup Of Tea

Those experiencing hostel accommodations for the first time were not entirely happy with dormitory living or sharing bathroom facilities.

Mattresses Misery

Guests reported problems with thin and less than comfortable mattresses.
