    In this hostel people were on there phones when others were trying to sleep. The lights were constantly being turned on and off. Loud music next door and one guy snoring made my stay here not so restful to say the least. It’s a good budget place and if you are not a sensitive sleeper then maybe you can manage okay

    Loud But Nice Hostel”

    Like others hostel in Singapore, these hostel probably have common. Have crowd area and right in the front of the building is bar or pub. We came in group in the mid night and got confused with the hostel, because the door was locked and the reservation staff in the second floor. We found a sign to contact the others hostel in group to check in. This is not to bad hostel, we just have a little problem with the cleanliness and lighting.

    The hostel is basic. The showers could do with a clean everyday. No toilet paper provided. Showers and toilets inconveniently located in main passageway. Shower doors cannot be locked. Rooms could do with a sweep everyday, including under the bed. On the last night got bitten by some insect that shared the bed with me, ended up with a few red spots.

    SO MUCH DISGUSTING!!!”

    Don't ever dare to book an accommodation to this hostel, waste of money and WASTE OF TIME. we booked there for 2 nights and when we went there the management just said no available room?? no available room but they confirmed our booking?? wth! what they just assured us is that, they will not charge any amount in my cc, but guess what? they confirmed a NO-SHOW guest, so authomatically they charge my cc and when we tried to refund it, they didnt even give back the money! The place is dirty, the price is not worth it. much better to get a lil higher price but comfortable and very convenient than this one..well, lesson learned. NEVER AGAIN.

    DONT BOOK!!!DIRTY,CARELESS STAFF, WORSE LOCATION”

    Mice roaming free, used covers on beds, staff member would not let us check in late although booking does not say what the latest check in is and our bus arrived late, we were left with no choice. Manager was rude on the phone and refused check in. A guest went in to hostel and when we followed we found management sitting at desk reluctant to again check us in. Once checked in, the dorm is a tip, completely inhabitable so I would STRONGLY advise to AVOID. We checked out the next day even though we had another paid night at the hostel. We paid 3x times the cost to stay elsewhere the very next morning. If the rooms being vile isn’t enough, it’s surrounded by sleazy clubs playing loud music at all hours of the night. AVOID.

    The location is very hard to find, there is no basic needs provided such as towel, or shower gel. the locker provided but no lock, what the heck! Even the shower is broken. Mostly tourist are indians. Wi-Fi connection is too slow. when i approached the front desk person and asked him to restart the wifi, he said that the wifi is strong but the fact is totally slow. He ignored me. What kind of service is this. I would never recommend this place to anyone. Not worth it at all!!! cheap but the worst hostel i have ever been.

    would give zero star if can. Not recommended to book. Hardly to search for the place. Too noisy. Dirtiest hostel. Request for a late check in but no respond till the end. Just burnt booking money when the staff ignore the text as we arrived at the ground floor with locked door. Advisable to arrive before 11pm or else your money will burnt out without you sleeping there. What the hell, with the cheapest room along zero comfortable level, luckily also didnt had a night there.

    After Agoda pushed the “last room” sales tactic, I booked and called the hostel who then informed me he won’t allow me to stay after 11pm. This was not stated anywhere in the information. He said to call them for a refund even though it said non refundable. I contacted Agoda and so far have not received word of a refund.
