Nice Staff, Good Location, Very affordable

Location, Friendly Staff, Free wifi
I am a solo traveler and for me location is a must. Being locate only 15 mins away from MRT Chinatown, this is a perfect place to stay. Chinatown also houses some tourist spots like temples, hawker center, mall, etc. The staffs are very friendly and approachable. I stayed for 4 nights in the inn and have a very comfortable and peaceful sleep.

Nice, not very far from MRT Chinatown.

Price, Location
My 2-nights stay turns out good. Easy to get back from MRT station even in the middle of the night. Room and shower room are not that clean but not bad. One more thing, i guess the next building to the hostel is karaoke room or something, and they keep singing all night long, you may feel quite uncomfortable with this. But overall, i'm happy with the room given its good price.
