Very disappointed - bedbugs and room change

Location and a 24 hour reception.
On arrival, I was told that I needed to change rooms because they had a group coming the next day and needed that room for the group. This was annoying as I only had two nights booked in Singapore as a quick stopover before flying home to the UK. The next morning, I asked for a locker for my laptop as I didn't want to carry it with me all day. The staff told me to put it in their luggage room because it's 'safe' - the room is locked but I left my big backpack there and was allowed to go into the room to pick up the bag myself unattended. I complained to the staff member as I didn't want to leave my laptop there and this would not have been an issue had I not been made to move rooms (all the rooms have lockers). Eventually, I was given a key to my would-be new room and they took me upstairs to let me drop off my laptop, but I was not allowed to take my luggage. When we entered the room, it was clear that everyone in that room had already checked out, this was also confirmed by the staff. This could or should have been checked, and they could've just let me use the locker without me having to 'fight; for it and I could've left my luggage there instead of taking it downstairs and then back up again or they could have cleaned up and allowed an earlier check in. The service was poor and the staff were slow, not understanding or helpful. On the first night, a baby cockroach ran across the bed as I was laying on it. That night, I slept in a sleeping bag liner as I was too scared. The next night, I didn't use one as it was a new room and too hot to use one. The next morning I had bed bug bites all over me (they tend to bite in rows or clusters). This ruined my trip as I went home with bite marks all over. It's been three days since I arrived home and I am still itchy all over with bite marks everywhere. Do not bother. I wouldn't stay here again if someone paid me.

Hostel only suit for Real Backpackers

Nice Staff, Excellent Location, Backpackers' Heaven
If you've ever living in Amazon Forest, it's a heaven. If you're in a material world, do not think about it. Not recommend for young female, maybe a good place for male to drop the luggage. The single room they assign to me is at the other buildings. No staff stay over there. Almost nothing inside the room, only loft-bed with pillows, a small chair plus a steel cabinet. Wondering why a dirty but huge carpet be put on the flooring of the room. Sorry, no courage to touch it. The toilet (attached with simple bathing facilities) will let you rush out within 3 to 10 minutes even bathing. Anyway, staff with courtesy and great location is win-win.

One of the best valued hotel in singapore

price, cleanliness, location
Although room a little bit small, but the room, hallway, and bathroom hygiene conditions very well preserved, and for your note price is very affordable. It's not easy to find a place with affordable price and well preserved hygiene. This place is suitable for you who find a place to put your luggage, sleep, and go around the city all day. The distance is only about 5 steps from Chinatown MRT.
