    Outstanding value in expensive Singapore”

    Hawaii Hostel is the last survivor of a bunch of Bencoolen Street hostels I've been using for over 40 years. The place is basic, but offers outstanding value in this downtown fringe area. It's quiet, clean enough, and one can get a (small) room to oneself for the price of a dorm bed elsewhere. WiFi is good and there's even a basic breakfast Monday to Saturday. Highly recommended!

    Good value in the heart of Bencoolen St.”

    I've reviewed Hawaii Hostel previously and don't have much to add. It's good value in an expensive city. It's well located. You get what you pay for in this life and Hawaii Hostel is unpretentious albeit basic. It's the last of a large number of somewhat old yet value for money places in Bencoolen St and surrounds - long may it continue!

    No frills no thrills property. Perfect location to be at the bargain district of SG at Bugis. Close to 3 train lanes: Blue, Green and Red. But theres opportunity in the toilet & common bathrooms to be clean enough for common use. Please put cover on the floor drain as its yuckky to see waste water all the time.

    The place is definitely good value for the money. One thing to improve could be the bathrooms in the rooms where it could be more nicer and accommodating. It looked under maintained but well functioning. The location wise is good as it is near to mrt and hawker stalls.

    Not a good place for backpackers”

    The place was once a dormitory since its so near to schools there, but the owner turned this to some kind of a traveler’s inn which is not that good. Shared comfort rooms were not maintained pillows and chairs were old. The place is good for those people who were working and just need a place to sleep regardless of the facilities, but for travelers and backpackers its not, tge place is very old, pictures on the internet are deceiving

    Gross Place. Attentive staff. ”

    Geezzz!!! Super gross!!! Floor (super dirty with dust all over, curtains (gross!! geez! i think it hasn’t been change for years) , hallway (cigar butts in every corner and stairs). I never had a hood night sleep. I know i booked a cheap room, but hey, atleast give us a cleaner one. Anyway, the staff (younger guy) is very attentive and accommodating. I was requesting for rooms that has windows coz God knows i can’t live even few minutes on that very hot hallway and no ventilation. Cockroaches the first to welcome me upon opening the first room. I’m really thankful to that staff who accommodated my request to change to room with window. Surely, will not go back here again. I love the area though coz it is just near Bugis.

    Above average”

    I booked a single room with shower. But when I arrived there, the receptionist said that price is for single room without shower and if I take single room with shower, it will cost 8 more SGD. I took with shower as I communicated to Agoda and I was told that that 8SGD will be reimbursed. Actually the shower is just so call shower which is just like a bigger size sink on the floor at the corner of room. So it is not really worthy for that price.

    Pros? Can check in even at 12am. Cons? The price is the cheapest, but it’s still considered expensive in my country. The room was small, the floor was dirty. I perform my prayers on the mattress!! The toilet was... idk i use it just bcs im desperate. Asked the owner is iron provided. he said yes, so i didnt bring my own, turned out, i have to pay SGD30 to use it. Checked their kitchen the night before, the bread that they store was let opened. I didnt even eat the breakfast provided. My advice, wherever you are from, if you want to cut some budget especially if you’re backpacking.. you better check-in hotel in johor bahru, malaysia. 70% cheaper, with better facilities and hygiene tho it’s quite troublesome but it’s so much worthy. Trust me on this.
