Not good...

Near Clarke Quay and MRT Station
The hostel doesn't fulfill the requirement for fire safety standard. So on the second day I was moved to the other hostel by the staff of the hostel. Good service and very helpful employee but poor hostel. Will not be here for my next trip.
Jeanne S. Solo travelers Philippines, July 24, 2014
Not worth it

Was surprised when we saw the place. It's not what we expect. The hostel is not clean and it is smelly. We were not given the room that we booked because they said that it is occupied. Our room looks old and the aircon is noisy. Good thing we only stayed 1 night. Not worth the money because there are a lot of better hostel/hotel with this price.
