Antonette C. Groups Philippines, August 1, 2015
My third time in SG

location, value for money, good staff
It was ok. My friends and I enjoyed our stay. The somewhat uncomfortable there was that, our room is inside another one. We need to enter the other room to reach ours. We were worried that we might disturb the guests in that room. Shower is ok so far (H/C), but there were tiny holes so I need to cover them up with soap. Comfort room is a bit smelly. We suggest that it needs to be cleaned twice a day. :) Room is ok as well, but I've seen a tiny little bug crawling on my bed. Bed and air conditioner is also ok. Not too bad for a backpackers hostel. I will definitely come back here with my friends coz this hostel is cleaner than the other backpackers hostel in SG.

Weird room, need maintenance, unhelpful staff

Location is good and near to MRT, near Aperia mall where they have 24 hours dim sum restaurant
Is a very unpleasant stay. Booked a Quad Room and being told that my room was "main room" where other people will have keys to open my door and passing by my room in order to enter their room when checked in. The washrooms walls are full with dirts and stain which my family felt really gross and unable to bath comfortably, we ended up refuse bathing for 1 day till we leave. There are tiny bugs (roaches and some unknown species bugs) can be seen on bed/crawling around the wall. Water machine is not working at all which caused us unable to refill our bottles but have to incurred extra money to purchase mineral water from the 7-11/Fair Price mart nearby the hotel. Staffs ignoring us when we asked assistance to function the Jacuzzi, we ended up going back to the hotel room without using the facilities. A big disappointment and I have to say that this is the worst dorm that I've been stayed in Singapore.

Room very different from photo

Near MRT, cheap
I was staying for 1 night at the hostel, I need get into other people private room in order to get in to my dorm. The side of the bed is spoil so I need sleep careful in order not to fall from the upper bunk bed. Power socket is not enough for the people that occupied in the room. Power socket 4 (1 for aircon which can't be unplugged - Occupancy 4). The water dispenser is not available in the night so I only can purchase mineral water due to only hot water is available for refill. The water dispenser outflow is small in the morning also.

Convenient, Clean,
Stay was good. Staff were cooperative. Did not get warm water at 7AM. AC was bit noisy (But OK) and would appreciate if breakfast menu changes.

It's okay!

location, close to fairprice, ananas cafe is the best!
I don't think I can traveling as a backpacker anymore. It is so not into me. They gave me the room at the 4th floor with no lift and the dispenser on the 4th floor is broken! Maybe I booked the wrong room, I need something more private. I've got a room that require me to pass other people's room, like seriously???? But next time I visit Singapore, I definitely will stay in this hotel but I'll booked a private room LOL

Not good hostel
Not good to stay this hostel: I lost my Mobile phone in the sharing toilet in the 40 minutes, room too small and the funny is when you go to family room you have to pass another people room (sharing room) when they are there (sleeping or doing something), no lift or escalator and light breakfast.
