bad choice”
if you hate sleep, stay here. curtains for walls mean even if you book 4 bed dorm you still get to hear all the noise from other dorms. coughing walking and snoring. did I mention the hostel is above a very loud karaoke bar that stays open till 1am. the bathrooms were unclean. and the fridge was full of old food. there are cheaper places to stay that are much nicer...

BED BUGS INFESTED, POOR WIFI, NOISY BAR BELOW”
Avoid this hostel like the plague ! It is completely infested with bed bugs, which bit me all over throughout the night. Hence, I was unable to sleep a wink. Their bites were painful and itchy, leaving numerous large swellings, and I had to seek medical treatment. When I complained to the Filipino receptionist, and asked whether the bed linen is changed regularly, he looked away, closed his eyes, nodded and claimed "yes". His body language indicated he was lying. The wifi is weak and continually interrupted. The bar just below is open until 2 a.m., so the customers' noisy talking and raucuous singing also prevented people from getting any sleep.

For short stay not bad”
May be due to most people stay short term they don't change the bed cover, blanket, and pillow cover. The rooms are congested and just closed by hangings so you will hear somebody's snoring well. Staff pretty friendly. Cleanliness need to improve. Location good.

Ants & Cockroaches ... Be prepared!”
Tons of ants in the room and I got several bites in bed at night. Couldn't sleep really well. There are some cockroaches in the hall and stairs. Basically almost everywhere has insects. I am usually easy on grading. I am okay with noise.... dirty bedsheets that they have provided. Small rooms...still fine for me. But ants and cockroaches are too far from passable. If you want to sleep well, add some more money and go other places... Other than that issue, location, staff, value for money are all good.

Basic”
We got a double bedroom with no window. Decoration was even less that basic, the room wasn't that clean. Shared bathrooms were ok, the showers were quite good. There were drinkable water for free, which was nice. In general, Singapore is expensive so even if you pay a normal price you don't get much at all. But location was good, in Chinatown.

My review for this hostel is so.. so...”
Well this hostel kinda an old brand. I think the management need to renovate it due to so humid inside not clean at all. Some staff were nice some were moody I can understand this situation which is u can found every where in this world. Strategic place, walking distance to MRT , to Marina Bay etc... If someone asks me would you recommend this hostel to ur friends, or would like to comeback to stay? THE ANSWER IS DEFINITELY NO. I found WALKINN PROJECT HOSTEL just 50m away from this hostel more clean more organized price more cheap and ooo yeaahhh they have breakfast. I paid for backpackers Inn 20$ without b'fast and walkinn project hostel 18$ including American b'fast. So for travelers please explore more before ended up in this hostel...
