BUDGET FRIENDLY ACCOMMODATION FOR A NON-BUDGET FRIENDLY COUNTRY”

Great place to stay when travelling in a group, with a family, even better when going solo! Good vibes all the way since the place is decorated with a modern style. People from all races and ages stay here and just gather at the lobby for breakfast. The best thing about our stay was that the receptionist was a Filipino! It really wasn't that of a hassle when asking for directions about going around Singapore. MRT station (Bendemeer) was close, bus stations were close by and Little India was just around 10-15 minutes walk. It's practically in the middle of town. Breakfast was also great, even if it was just toast, oranges, butter and several other flavored stuffings. It was basically an eat-all-you-can breakfast so it's so worth it! I would stay here again if I go back to Singapore!!! Really awesome place. Sad thing is, I wasn't able to go up the terrace at the second floor since we were almost out all the time. I'd recommend this place to everyone!

Very nice”

The stay was one of the best ones I've ever had. Location: very convenient to get around with so many bus stations around Staff: they were helpful showing me around and provided everything that was needed Room and bed: interior is nice, very calming. Has a common place for breakfast and chilling around. They even have a rooftop area that looked super nice (didn't have the time to take a rest there). The bed is clean and blanket is provided. I was placed right beside the door which I thought would disturb my sleep, but earplugs are provided so I was able to get a good rest. Breakfast: There were fruits and toast with pb, chocolate, butter, jam. You can also have tea nad coffee. It was better than I expected.

I and my family stayed here for almost a week. I could say that everything went smooth despite of checking in at 1am. There was even an instance that we left our action cam by the stairs and the receptionist was so vigilant and was able to keep it for us. The comfort rooms were well kept clean as well as the group activity area... all thumbs up to all their staffs for their hardwork 👍👍👍👍

Perfect hostel for a couple nights backpacking in Singapore”

Cool little hostel with a funky, fun vibe. Facilities were good, and the location was excellent walking distance to a number of restaurants and amenities. The one small thing was that the pillows were a little uncomfortable, so if you really travelling I’d advise to bring your own! Other than that it was a great stay, would definitely recommend.

We literally just needed a place to sleep and bathe, nothing fancy since we were always out. This is a good place for that. The free toast breakfasts are UNLIMITED!!! Gets me through until I need to eat lunch at around 12isgh. The staff are nice, especially the receptionist. Very helpful. There is a bus stop near (like 1 min walk) from this place and 3 hawkers near it! A few vending machines too and a pay coin laundry :)
