    The Best Hostel in Singapore”

    This hostel is amazing ! Start from the location, it's really easy to go anywhere cause it's located close to the tourist attraction. It's also just 200 meters away from the MRT station, therefore it's so convenient. The staffs were really nice and one of them is Indonesian though. On my departure date, the staff still let me to have a shower there and to keep my belongings until I came back in the evening. The room was clean and nice. Everything's good ! Even I made new friends there, so I really enjoyed my stay there. I'll definitely come back here whenever I'm.in Singapore 👍🏻

    extra charges”

    The place is just ok, I mean, you're there just to spend the night and the fun is going out and about. However I was annoyed at the fact that late check-in has a plus rate and the later the more expensive. I personally was there because my flight landed by midnight and needed a place stay, but I ended up paying extra 16sgd just for the late check-in, the hostel on the lower level didn't have this extra fee. I also had to pay +3 for a towel. Staff is nice and place is clean, I just wish I could at least have the option of paying for these extra fees when I'm booking here and have it charged to my card.
