Great well thought out place

Located where hawker food started, layout/ease of use, provison of additional services
I stayed in the female dorm for 7 nights and it was a fantastic and comfortable stay. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Everything I needed was at my fingertips and so I didn't have to spend time searching for things like laundries, gyms or converters. I didn't manage the bus routes but the MRT was about 20mins walk away.

A little bit lost when trying to find the location

value for money
as this my first experience going to this hotel area, I got a little bit problem when trying to find a bus to Joo Chiat Rd from Balestier. Maybe for next visit will be easier.

Decent Stay

Location, lounge area
It was an okay stay, family room was large and although there was a small air con, the room really did get cold at night. We didn't have breakfast but the lounge / reception area was relaxing. The staff were very welcoming. I would describe this as a travellers Hostel as lots of activities were advertised for tourists to be involved in. We didn't receive any towels for the bathroom and the bathroom was a shared facility so please be ready for this.
