Recommended for couples”

The hostel is right close to Lavender MRT, which is super convenient. If you're a couple, it's great because the double-bunk-beds are pretty big, you have a power outlet by your head, and a locker right in the room (lock provided). It's really private and comfortable. The downside, is that the breakfast area and "common area" which is tiny, is right outside your door so it's a bit noisy in the evening and morning. Breakfast was toast with a plethora of jams and peanut butters, and a cocoa-puff-kinda cereal that looked a bit like dog food. Coffee was good, tea was good. The showers had shampoo in them, and they were always clean. If you're a single guy, your room will be on another floor, and you'll be bunking in with a bunch of east-Indian workers NOT like-minded backpackers. Not a great place to meet people, but an excellent place for couples to stay.

It was our first time to travel as tourists with my parents and this hostel made our mini vacation amazing, convenient and comfortable . It’s jusr few walks away from the lavender station which made it convenient for us to travel anywhere and there are food corners nearby as well . The toilets are clean, the beds are massive and the receptionist as well as Kuya Job was very accommodating towards every needs of their clients . Free breakfast is decent enough and will keep you all throughout the day. Our whole experience was the best and I would highly recommend this hostel . Thank you so much for accommodating us!

OSS Backpacker's is clean and tidy, friendly and kind staff to assist you while you stay at the hostel. There is a 24 hour mini mart nearby and a 7-11, so no worries of midnight snacks. They even have snacks for you there. By far the best breakfast then other hostel here. Transportation isn't a problem as buses and trains are just walking distance away. The most important room in the hostel is without flies and roaches, and i mean the toilet. I don't know about the ladies, but the gents is super clean.

The uncles working there are always smiling and ready to help. Umbrella was offered unexpectedly when I was going out for dinner while it was drizzling. The capsule bed is located at level 3, you can adjust the air-conditioning in the capsule, the room is clean and quiet. The washroom is small and very clean and well maintained despite the high usage. Really appreciate the extra efforts the workers put in to maintain it. Many attractions are just a few bus rides away from the hostels.

Great place with friendly staff. Fortunate enough to have a spacious bed provided. A good though limited choice of breakfast items were provided like coffee, tea, cereal and bread which is adequate for me. Toilets on the ground floor is very clean to my liking and not to miss the strong wifi rounds up a great stay here.

Clean hostel, good location, friendly staff”

I like this hostel. It is well located nearby the heart of Singapore, only few MRT stations to Bugis, Orchard, China town. Pros: - Good location. Relatively close to Lavender station (10 mins walking) and Bandemeer station ( just 5 mins walking to the opposite side) - Many kinds of food and restaurant around - Fairprice supermarket - Good breakfast (Coffee, tea, bread, jam, butter, magarine...). What could you expect more from such a low price hostel. - Very clean toilets and bathrooms. Shampoo and bath milk provided is definitely a surprising plus. Cons: - Nothing to complain if they do not turn off the air con during daytime (from 9am to 6pm). Seriously, it’s so much like pushing everyone out for the whole day long. Without aircon, the whole room becomes very smelly and certainly too hot to stay.

A Pleasant Stay”

I spent 4 nights in the women's 8-bed dormitory. I liked the cubicle design with a curtain at the end that did a good job blocking light from the outside, except if you were on a top bunk. Each cubicle had its own interior light, so with the curtain, there was good privacy. I slept well (though earplugs helped!) Chris and staff were extra accommodating. They had not received my special request to have a bed furthest away from the door, but when I mentioned it to Chris, he let me select my bed from what was available. Also, when I let Chris and staff know that I would be spending the day in the room, they turned the ac on for me for a few extra hours. Normally, the ac is turned off at 9:00am and turned on again at dusk. I really appreciated that! Kitchen and bathrooms were amazingly clean throughout the day. Big drawback: shared bathrooms. I did not feel safe sharing the bathroom with strange men, sometimes in various stages of undress :-(
