My hostel near MRT
Will be staying for six days, at first we were afraid because the room is inside another room and no window. There is door in every room but they close it and let you enter in the middle room, by the way we occupied the room on the left and there is one more room in the right. It will be inconvenient on the person/s occupying the middle room because will be passing them everytime but they told us it's vacant most of the time. It is value for money and near Lavender MRT. For the six days that we stay, I can say that there is no bed bugs in our room, the aircon is working, hot and cold water in shower and the staff answers is politely. I think the price reasonable, I just hope they open the door in every room..

The location is good it is near the mrt station (lavender station). The owner is allowing us to shower even though we are not checking in yet. They also allow us to put our bags in the lobby before we check in so we can get around the city. BUT.. The hotel opens at 8am, you are luck if someone gets outside early so you can get it and wait for the receptionist. We waited from 5:45 to 7:30am before we got in the hotel. After going around the city, by the time we get to see our room. We were shocked that in one whole room there are 3 divided rooms. When you enter the main door there are 2 double decks owned by two guys that we don't know (we are three women by the way) when you turn right there's a door for another tenant we don't know if they are girls or boys. And when you turn left that's our room. We are terrified because that's the first we travel without our parents and we are in a room with random people. Be careful of checking in. We booked a room JUST for the 3 of us that's why we are shocked that we have roommates eventhough there's a divider we are STILL in one room locked with one door. We immediately eat dinner at 6pm because we don't want those guys to know that their roommates are girls then we slept by 7pm. We woke up and leave the room at 4am and took a shower at the shower room at the ground floor instead. There are also bugs in the room. BE CAREFUL ON WHAT YOU ARE BOOKING.

The worst hostel ever
I booked quadruple room on However, I was given 2 cheaper and lousier rooms instead. The beds were full of mites and my friends were badly bitten. Thankfully, agoda was kind enough to assist.
