Good Place, Good Price

Price, Near Bus and MRT staytion; Nice Staff
I have stayed her for 5 days. My friends and I really like it. We got family room for 3 people on second floor. Room is clean, free wifi, TV, air condition unlimited, coffee breakfast, personal locker. Bathroom is share but here are many room for each floor so we don't need to wait to use, it's also cleaning and have warm water. The location is real good. It's close to the MRT and Bus station, there's a supermarket of sorts nearby, you can get food easily around. Staff is helpfull and friendly

No help from staff with bags

Nice roof, good shower and comfortable room
I have stayed here twice. Both times the 3rd floor ran out of toilet paper and wasnt replaced. I asked the Indian hostel worker for help with bags and he said no. He just laid on floor doing nothing, while a lady carried 2 bags down 3 stairs. Shame on his laziness

No privacy

cleanliness and location
location and cleanliness is nice but if you want privacy, remove this hostel on your list. Family room is located on the other side of the main room which means you need to pass through a room first before you can get in to your room. We were given a different room and not the room that we booked with a reason that all rooms are booked and thats the only room that they have..

One of the worst ever
Got the familiy room which was a hole without windows. We had to cross another (occupied) room to get to ours. Breakfast was toast that you could warm up in the microwave plus butter and jam (one knive for all guests!!!). Drinks were instant sweet coffee and tea. Avoid like the plague!

Richard C. Couples United Kingdom, August 6, 2015

Location was the good thing
We booked a "4/6 bed dorm", but what we actually ended up with was a room accessible by 12 people. Our dorm was a corridor for getting to rooms either side. These rooms on either side used to have their own entrances, but for some reason they have been blocked off. This meant that our luggage was much less secure, and the cost of lockers is prohibitively expensive at S$2 per use. One of the doors for the adjoining rooms was broken, and made a lot of noise every time it was opened or closed. We were only able to get 5-6 hours of broken sleep each night. There was no space for bags except the tiny space under the bed, which was very dirty and full of rubbish. The jacuzzi is very dirty, and has bits of plastic missing/broken, and the wooden boards that it sits on are rotten. The sofas pictured in the common areas have been replaced by bean-bags on every floor. For breakfast, there's a toaster oven, which takes 10-15 minutes to toast two slices of bread. The bathrooms were very dirty. The air-con barely worked unless we put the fan speed up to full, but doing this for too long eventually caused it to start squeaking very loudly - not nice in the middle of the night. We would have changed hostels but were locked into a no cancellation policy. We still left one day earlier than planned, and just figured we'd lose the fee for the last night, as every night of the 4 nights previously we were getting very little sleep. The man on reception made no reference to the fact just we were leaving early when we checked out, so neither did we, as we just wanted to leave. I have stayed in a lot of hostels, and this is by far the worst. For the amount that this hostel charge, I would definitely recommend looking elsewhere.
