Positive Reviews

Convenient location

The location of this hostel has proved to be a consistent plus point among reviews of the property. Guests have particularly enjoyed the selection of shopping in the area as well as noting that public transport is easily accessible nearby.

Good rooftop terrace

Guests have enjoyed the rooftop terrace at the hostel, finding the seating area and spa tub offers a good way to relax during a stay here. Guests have also enjoyed having barbecues on the terrace.

Affordable rates

The rates at this hostel have attracted guests who were looking for a low-cost accommodation option in Singapore. Freebies such as Wi-Fi and breakfast, while not exactly problem free, have added value for a fair number of guests.

Negative Reviews

Cleanliness could be better

Overall, previous guests have found the cleanliness level at this Singapore hostel leaves something to be desired. The dorms and bathrooms attract similar feedback, suggesting that most areas of the property would benefit from more attentive cleaning.

Erratic Wi-Fi connection

Feedback about the Wi-Fi here tends to vary. While some guests have encountered no significant problems, a fair number have found the connection slow or prone to dropping out.

Basic breakfast

Breakfast here consists of toast and a selection of cereals. Although this is a freebie, it has often proved to offer an unsubstantial start to the day.
