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!!!

          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.

          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!!!!

          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.

          Location, location, price

          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.

          Convenient location, Working AC, Clean Beds

          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.
