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...

Convenient location”
Location was easy to find - just a few minutes walk from Chinatown MRT station. Near most of the city attractions/tourist spots. Room is a bit small though but AC is working fine. Expected to have towel available but was not provided.
