            A hostel is meant to be shared among all race, religion and nationality. By rejecting a singaporean is as good as discriminating my nationality. Having traveled to so many hostels in so many countries. It is totally illegal and unacceptable for discriminating the nationality of a guest. Try that anywhere else in a bar, restaurant, or hotels and certainly the authorities will not be satisfied to issue the licence for business. God made all equal. There is room for discrimination on earth irregardless of your religion, race or nationality. And you are free to patronise anywhere as long as i pay. That is the law of freedom.

            Highly not recommended for first timers to Singapore. As there are many more choices of hostels in and around central tourist areas like chinatown, bugis, clark quay and boat quay. This hostel is far from the main action. Around there are some vietnamese restaurants. But lots of vietnamese girls parading the streets. Seems like looking for some quick cash near the pubs. Hostel is fairly old but much more efficiently run than other hostels that i stayed before. Everything you need in a hostel is provided except no towels. Breakfast is plain white bread only.

Everything I needed was at my fingertips and so I didn't have to spend time searching for things like laundries, gyms or converters. I didn't manage the bus routes but the MRT was about 20mins walk away.

            It was an okay stay, family room was large and although there was a small air con, the room really did get cold at night. We didn't have breakfast but the lounge / reception area was relaxing. The staff were very welcoming. I would describe this as a travellers Hostel as lots of activities were advertised for tourists to be involved in. We didn't receive any towels for the bathroom and the bathroom was a shared facility so please be ready for this.

            Even though we arrived at the hostel nearly midnight, the staff was very friendly and helpful. We had to leave very early next morning and staff advised us where we can catch the train or the taxi to the airport. The room was reasonably clean. It is in the middle of very busy area so it is very easy to find local restaurants or facilities around.

            A hotel is an establishment that provides lodging paid on a short-term basis. The provision of basic accommodation, in times past, consisting only of a room with a bed, a cupboard, a small table and a washstand has largely been replaced by rooms with modern facilities, including en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning or climate control. Additional common features found in hotel rooms are a telephone, an alarm clock, a television, a safe, a mini-bar with snack foods and drinks, and facilities for making tea and coffee. Luxury features include bathrobes and slippers, a pillow menu, twin-sink vanities, and jacuzzi bathtubs. Larger hotels may provide additional guest facilities such as a swimming pool, fitness center, business center, childcare, conference facilities and social function services. Hotel rooms are usually numbered (or named in some smaller hotels and B&Bs) to allow guests to identify their room. Some hotels offer meals as part of a room and board arrangement. In the United Kingdom, a hotel is required by law to serve food and drinks to all guests within certain stated hours. In Japan, capsule hotels provide a minimized amount of room space and shared facilities.
