We was so shocked when we arrived there, omg. Too dark, too dirty, too scarring. Bed are very old and dirty, we thought there were a lot of bedbugs!!! We didn't stay this place, we tried to find another one better and leave it in that day. No keycard, keys, everyone can come to your room. Bathroom and toilet are our nightmare!!! We all accepted to pay mor for stay the better one. OMG!
DO NOT BOOK IT! BED BUGS, DISGUSTING TOILETS AND SHOWERS!”
This hostel is the worst place we have stayed in in our 6 months journey around Asia. The place is filthy, no bedding changed, disgusting toilets and showers, and BED BUGS!!! Huge bed bugs!!! We ran away after just one hour of being there as everything was so disgusting we couldn't stand it. The property now doesn't want to return our money so STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!
THIS PLACE IS DISASTER”
this place is super dirty and not recommended to stay at this place..the toilet only working 1 then other toilet is damage and dirty..the floor is dirty,bathroom is dirty and yellowish,bed bugs everywhere!,the room is smelly too..Wifi is slow and ..this is the worst experience ever in singapore..the Advantage of this place is near to MRT and boat quay..thats all
If you find for a budget hostel to stay at downtown its will be gud. But need to warning for you thats the restroom really dirty, pillow and blanket was smell. But luckily have the gud and nice receptionist. That only my plus point for this.
Bad stay ever!!!! ”
i have the worse vication of my life ... It's near by the Clarke quay mrt OK this is fine for me... But when I reach the hostel OMG the stairs got a weird smell ( like a dog haven't bath for 2years) then I walk in to the first floor for check in , Another smell came off like pair unwashed stocking plus when I walk in to the 8 mix domitary there's all kinds of smell OMG... I taught I can sleep for 3days but sorry I couldn't not.. I slept for one day on the same day I saw bug on my bed and everywhere... Fxck then I check out Check-in 28/3 check out 29/3 29/3 i call out to agoda for the bad service i got ，that the reception close at 10pm but I when back at 9pm I can't see any one at the reception and I wait till 10pm still haven't seen one ppl at there.. Okay nvm agoda's staff call them for better reason about the dirty place and bed bugs and water heater . And the reception said they already informed me that they cleaned room everyday
I had satisfying rest and breakfast in this hostel.”
I was worried about the bed bugs mentioned in the reviews but, there are none, so far, at least in the private quad room. The room and sheets are clean. Guests need to take off shoes before entering lobby and room, FYI. Toaster is also available now. :)
Scary Room with Bad Smell”
The pictures from the website here are very deceiving. At first I thought I fond a better place to stay at a cheaper price. When we are there, the room smells like an insect repellant. It was very dark and the double deck is moving a lot. So quickly we went out and it was so sad that we didnt get any refund. You also need to take off your shoes when you get inside the room. It is not advisable for a group tour specially if you are looking for a cozy room to stay. There are a lot better room than this at their price.
Place is located very near to Metro station and all the required stores are right next to it , place was okay , not very clean , but considering the friendliness of the staff , u May ignore that aspect , overall I would like to rate it as a good place for bagpackers
late check in”
even i take flight so late so that why when i came to hotel í nobody already, but it really warm for me is I found the note with my name inside and they had already arrange the bed to meeven no reception. Thanks Uncle
BED BUGS EVERYWHERE”
GUYS, DONT STEP A FOOD IN THIS HOSTEL. IT IS INFESTED WITH BED BUGS. OWNERS KNOW ABOUT IT BUT DO NOTHING. THEY PRETEND TO BE STUPID. I HAVE BOOKED THIS PLACE WITHOUT READING REVIEWS, AS I THOUGHT OF ALL THINGS SINGAPORE IS A CLEAN COUNTRY, AND SO ARE ITS HOSTELS !!! BUT I COULDNT BE MORE WRONG. GOT BITTEN, AND HAD HASSLE SO MUCH TO CLEAN MY CLOTHES AND ITEMS FROM BED BUGS, AS I HAD TO LEAVE NEXT DAY. THIS PLACE IS AS UNSANITARY AS IT GETS. I HAVE REPORTED THIS PLACE TO AUTHORITIES AND WILL DO ALL I CAN TO SHUT THIS PLACE DOWN.
WORST PLACE I HAVE EVER BEEN IN MY LIFE”
I feel extremely disappointed. First, because of the dishonesty of the owner of this place, who offered me to leave just as I arrived on my first day. He gave me a speech about how honest he was and how previous guests had complained about insects and bed bugs before. I literally sat on one of the beds of this place for 1 hours and now I have more than 5 lick bites on my body, had to go to the doctor to get medicine and I left as soon as possible to another hotel. I have all the pictures and videos of the conditions of the bed I was offered to stay at this place. I myself killed 3 licks that had been walking on me, now I will have to esterilize all my clothing and take medicine to make sure I don’t get any infections or diseases. If you care about your health and feel like you deserve a decent condition to stay, go far away from this hostel!!!!
Nice hostel for a reasonable price in a good location with a very, very nice owner.
Very convenient place. Never thought the subway and mall is just a walk away! It's also just beside a 7/11 store. Was expecting their free breakfast had some rice, but its just bread, jam and coffee. Not that I complain, it was good
Value for money in the middle of singapore”
I love this place because it is near to public transportation such as MRT and bus. And also walking distance to merlion and Marina Bay Sands. This is the second time I stay here when I came to Singapore. and these will be my first choice when I come back to Singapore for budget travel.
not recommend for those check out early in the morning”
first time stay here, very near with MRT heater spoil, cannot adjust temperature but still OK to use no 24hrs receptionist, am check out by early in the morning (7.30) but no receptionist, so i need to return back to hostel in noon only for return key and collect back my key deposit staff very kind and friendly
This is the second time I stay here. The hostel has delivered good service as it was the first time. Quite near Clarke Quay MRT, especially Clarke Quay riverside in which there are many bar, pub together hilarious activities on Saturday.
Best Value of Money, highly Recommended”
It was my first time to booked myself in a dormitory type, and its an awesome experience. Location - just less than 5mins away (walking) from Clarke Quay MRT station and a Bus Terminal. Less than 10 mins from China Town. Cleanliness - 95%. You can finds things accordingly. The room is air-condition and beddings are all clean. You can rent a towel for 2.00SGD. Staff- they will assist you like you are in 5star hotel. Very accomodating. Facilities - this is their weakness. They dont have an elevator. But they have their common shower area with hot and cold. Totally Best Value of Money! Believe me, you will gonna like this place if you we're on budget and you will only need a place to sleep since at the rest of the day, you ate busy roaming at the tourist destination. Dont worry your belongings are safe here. I will totally be back with my friends next time.
Cheap with location”
Basically a great location between Clarke quay and the boat quay. It is a hostel mostly, but they have a limited number of so called twin and family rooms with common bathrooms. Barebones, but okay. For breakfast I would recommend the McDonald's behind the Penny Black at the End of the Boat Quay.
Easy access to Clarke Quay area.”
The AC in our original double room wasn't working so they gave us a free upgrade to a quad room, which was really nice. The service was great and the staff was friendly. With heavy luggage and a fourth floor room, the only negative thing was the lack of an elevator.
Best backpacker I've ever stay”
Simply my best experience with backpacker hostel. Very close to MRT Station, very close to Clarke Quay, with an affordable rates. If you don't mind sharing room, this is the best place for saving money
