A great place where to stay for sure!”

I've booked my stay for 3 nights at this hostel. When I arrived, I was treated very well and was allowed to use my bed before checking time. The staff is very nice, polite and professional. The location is perfect in many ways: the metro, the restaurants, the safety, the buses...The rooms have both Air Con and a fan. The bathrooms, the kitchen, the hallways are all clean and well organized. It's well worth it the money I paid for. I wouldn't ask for more. I highly recommend it to travelers around the world. Thanks, everybody for the great and professional work!! Hope to come again in the future...Cheers, Mike from Canada.

Budget-friendly comfortable hostel”

We stayed for the hostel for 4 nights. We initially booked the Family room with Shared bathroom. However, when we got there, we wanted to upgrade a room with private bathroom. The staff offered us a room for 8 persons with private bathroom at a discounted price. The staff is very, very kind and approachable. They are very friendly. They will help you in everything you need. Also, the room is clean and comfortable for sleeping. This is a perfect place to stay while enjoying Singapore!

Their staff is very accommodating and friendly. ”

What i like about pine is that their staff is good and their hostel is really tourist-friendly. We didn't have any problems with them, everything we ask they allow us, they are really very considerate like letting us check in 1hour early because they saw us sleeping on their dinning table because we were tired due to our early morning flight. And they let us leave our luggages at the dinning area even though we already had checked out, they also allowed us to take a bath at their shower when we took our luggages at 10pm but we were already checked out. They were really kind and respectful. I would recommend pine to all my friends. ❤️

Nice Experience”

Stayed for 4 nights. Arrived at the hotel early in the morning, but was able to check-in early at no extra cost. Another advantage is that the hotel is very close to public transport. The hotel staffs were very polite. The WiFi speed is very good. Would recommend it to people on a low budget and want to have a comfortable stay.

Short and Simple”

I was back to Sg for the weekend and tried this new hostel found on agoda. Overall, its a fairly new hostel as renovation is still not completed in some areas. Beds are new amd comfortable except that there were no blinds in each bed as shown in the pictures. There are 3 local public eateries with a wide variety of foods. Located just beside an old temple, bells could be heard every 2 hours after 7am. Had a simple orientation around this 3 storeys hostel with many upcoming rooms available in the future. Seems like looking to accommodate large numbers or groups of tourists. Its new and David over the counter receptionist is extremely helpful in accommodating us. Would recommend any traveller who is on budget with a few nights to spare in this city.

Nice hotel but not ideal for families with heavy luggages”

The hostel is very clean and the staffs are friendly and kind. After checking my sister's temperature is quite high, but normal, they gave her medicine to take just to make sure the safety of everyone. Good job. The Aircondition in our room is a problem, it cannot give enough cooling; there is no elevator as well, we have heavy luggage and they have nobody to help you climb those luggages in the 4th floor - its only ideal for travellers with small to medium bags. Overall ideal hostel for travellers!
