Thank you very much
Thank you very much
Unmade Bed - the sheets had not been changed for 3 nights, no towel, no lift, dirty bathroom.
the whole hostel is full of bed bugs everywhere ......0 star.
The staffs here are very impolite. The trashbins are hardly cleared. A lotttttt of bedbugs.”
Impolite staffs. No proper response or guidence about the rules and regulations. Very very poor maintanence.
Room changed without inform early!”
We were not happy with the booking cos we were not given the family room that we booked, instead a six bunker beds room was given, and the ventilation was so bad that my father was down with sinus. We couldn't enjoy the trip at all!
Please get all the mattress out and at least place under the sun for an hours from time to time!!! It is so rash and itchy for the bug bites!!!
'Super delux' room is not in the main building but in another street, next to a ktv where the singing could be heard clearly and loudly everyday till 3am. Ants and a mouse were noticed. However, the location is good with mrt and 24 hr eateries very close by.
We went for Singapore for count down on 31/12/2016; and when we check-in, the staffs asked us to wait for some time for their arrangement of the room as there is some issue whereby he told us that, Agoda hacked into their booking system; we booked double room, and he said no more double room and he will need to put us in the 6-dorm room sharing with other people. According to him, we can choose not to take up the room but he said he trying to help us since it is count down night, not easy to get the hotel now. After we accepted, he refunded us the balance for the different of the double room vs 6-dorm room. After that, only we realised, they charged us the commission charged by Agoda to them. We are really disappointing and fortunately we only stay for one night.
Shady building, poor service”
I booked in checkers backpackers, but when i arrived i was sent to another building, its not part of checkers backpackers, it turns out to be a serviced apartment called Oasis Serviced Apartment. Its not located at campbell lane, not even at the same road with checkers backpackers. The staff told me that the services apartment is still the property of checkers backpackers, but i think it should be stated in the website so the customer will be aware about it. On my second night, the ceiling was leaked, the floor was flooded, so my bag and shoes were wet. We told the staff, they cleaned it up but they couldn't get me a better room, i had to sleep there until the next day when they finally gave me a new room. One of the staff was drunk every time i saw him, i don't know why the boss still allowed him to work. Furthermore, the serviced apartment is located next to karaoke place, so it was very noisy at night.
Hostel was so overbooked that people had to sleep on the floor with a mattress crammed next to others. They changed our 9bed dorm into a 10bed dorm as they were too overbooked but did not let us know this was happening, as well as moving our stuff to another bed without letting us know. The showers where 'cleaned' once maybe twice during our 6 day stay. Even after cleaning there were still hairs everywhere in the shower. The breakfast was the best I have had from all my hostel stays - unlimited bread, jam, butter and bananas (from 8am-10am) tea and coffee as much as you want all day. Location is ideal - a minute walk from the SMRT (Rochor - which is super convenient to get to anywhere in Singapore) and Little India buses (useful for the night safari).
the manager told me that expedia didnt close their booking as such they are actually out of room that i have been arranged to stay in some old shophouses room where downstair is a ktv.
Disappointed! Room change!”
It was disappointing as we didn't get the attic room that we booked and paid for. We were placed in a 4-bunk bed room and the refund we got was not sufficient enough to cover for our inconvenience.
Thank you very much
The bathroom is too small and dirty. Others are ok.
Didn't honour the booking and sent me to an office block someplace.
