Positive Reviews

Top location for exploring Singapore

Nearly all past guests have highlighted the hostel's location as one of its biggest advantages. Situated in the vibrant Arab Street and close to shops, restaurants and transport links, the property is also within walking distance of major attractions such as the Cloud Forest and Singapore Flyer.

Good quality Wi-Fi

The Wi-Fi quality was commended by most former visitors that used the facility during their time at the accommodation. Along with being considered reliable and speedy overall, the Wi-Fi being supplied free of charge was also positively received.

Friendly staff a great asset

According to many, the staff members are amongst the best aspects of staying at the hostel. Previous guests have regularly noted that the staff members were really friendly, kind and communicative.

Negative Reviews

Shared bathrooms not ideal

The shared bathrooms have been a somewhat frequent source of criticism for past visitors that stayed at the accommodation. Along with the general inconvenience of not having a private bathroom, the condition of the shared facilities has also been judged as below standard on occasion.

Noise can be problematic

Based on the sentiments of previous guests, noise produced by both internal and external sources can be bothersome when staying at the hostel. With that said, free earplugs are offered by the property to help lessen this negative point.

Basic breakfast could be improved

Although it is supplied at no additional cost, the breakfast has still received negative comments from a sizeable amount of former visitors to the accommodation. In particular, and with just the basics covered with the likes of cereals and toast, the breakfast was considered overly basic.
