Nice staff, convenient place

Friendly staff, nice place and near MRT
Friendly staff, nice place although three rooms using the same way out. Anyway, It is worth for your low- budget. Next time I visit SG, I will stay here.

Not recommended for a comfortable stay

Disadvantages - The sharing bathroom/toilet has a few spots of scratched paint that will reveal anyone who is using the bathroom. We are not sure it is done purposely or because of vandalism. - One of the staff was very rude when complaint about the bathroom. - Not a clean environment at the toilet/bathroom - Averagely clean rooms despite the suspected bed bug marks on the bed sheet - Breakfast not satisfying Advantages - Good location

Hotel bed is unclean

location near MRT
After our stay, we discovered marks on our backs caused by bugs from the mattress? Whole day we suffered from the itch caused by the bugs.

Worst smell of hostel

the location and staff performance
I had never enjoy a 4 days 3 nights trip at the Mercury Backpackers Hostel! Besides the staff performance and so-so location,I couldn't find any best thing of the hostel. It's my first experience to live at a backpacker hostel! Me,my boyfriend and his sister got bite by bed bug! And,the room is very smelly,it's not rubbish smell,it's like a kind of drug smell I think. This trip was the worst trip I ever had! Because of the smelly room I had no appetite to eat my meal and this caused me a very serious gastric problems and cost me so much to see doctor when I'm back.
