Clean and welcoming in the perfect location.”

Pros- clean, well maintained, quiet location for chinatown, excellent staff. Cons- toilet/shower area could do with upgrading. We were lucky to get a twin room to ourselves, the bedding was white, clean and fresh. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We will return here on our next visit. Special thanks to Richard for his help when we had a crisis.... thank you again.

The staff here are so nice and work very hard to help you. There was a mix up with my reservation but they were able to accommodate me. Also everything was so clean. The mattress and bedding is a bit old but for the price, it is not bad. Sheets are thin, but recommend just bringing your own to be more comfortable. One of the better budget hostels I stayed that.

It is worth of money, breakfast of bread, coffee and tea is provided! Just things to take note would be no toiletries provided, toilets and bathrooms are shared among all the tenants in the accommodation. Other than that, the room is clean and tidy! ^^ It is very near to Chinatown, which is just right in front of it! 5 minutes walking distance to Chinatown MRT!

The staff are very commendable super friendly and nice, would even give you tips on where to go around the area. I slept well through the night even if we were in bunk beds, even my 4 year old daughter had a pleasant stay. If you don't like going barefoot within common areas best to bring bedroom slippers as they have a no slippers rule in the hostel. No problems going on barefoot as the floors are clean and you will see their staff cleaning it often times in a day. If you are just looking for a place to sleep as you go around Singapore this is the best place. Very good location near the mrt, there are also interesting restaurants and food stalls and there's a neaby mall where there is good exchange rate and cheap finds. I would highly recommend, and will go back next time.
