    Nice location, strategic area, great staff, i love stay here”

    we booked a 4 bed private room with shared bathroom. when we arrived, they upgrade us to a family room with 6 bed en suite bathroom. We get a free breakfast and 2 big bottles of mineral water, plus hot water at any time to make a coffee or tea. The lokcation is near little india station, you can walk a way, so easy to go everywhere, easily getting halal food and close to the market, mustafa center, Bugis, Arab villages, and the bus terminal to singapore. and most important of all his staff are very nice and pleasant n helpfull. if I go to singapore again, I would stay in Cliffden hostel. Great memory!!

    I stayed for 4 days with my teenage kids. We got room with 6 beds & ensuite bathroom. No amenities, bring your own. The room always cleaned, breakfast provided (bread & jams). the staff very helpful & friendly. Towels can be rent for S$1/pax for the length of stay. Location is easy to access from Little India MRT station(200-300m). Close to Sri Veemmakaliaman temple (200m). If you dont mind walking, you could walk to Haji Lane, Kampong Glam and Bugis street (900m). Food: many restaurant around the hostel if you dont mind Indian food. There are moslem restaurand in neighbouring street.

    Cost is very cheap and offers free light breakfast. Unlimited bread and butter with peanut butter and jelly plus unlimited coffee and milk tea. The staff is also Filipino. She is very accomodating and hospitable. I would suggest that they provide clean towels and toilet papers. Overall, it was a comfortable stay for our family. Thank you Clifden Hostel!

    Good hostel and nice staff!”

    We already booked 2 beds in mixed-room in Clifden hostel 2 nights (13 and 14 May). Staffs in this hostel are very kind and enthusiastic, they helped us alots for the first time we came to Singapore. Room and toilets are clean. Staying in this hostel is easy to get bus and DT Line to go to other places. However, our beds is not good a bit because they're not secure and the sound made us difficult to sleep. Anw, thank you so much for your service :D

    Just a few walks away from Little India MRT stop, the hostel is clean and convenient for travelers. Staff are super friendly and approachable. There are multiple comfort rooms for use. Breakfast is bread with 4 choices of spreads - kaya, cheese, liverspread and blueberry and with hot chocolate, tea or coffee. Would love to go back there.

    6 dorm room was good”

    The place was clean and comfortable and in a good location. We booked an 8 dorm room but when we turned up they tried to put us in a 12 dorm room which we refused as we paid more for less people in a room. In the end we were put in a 6 dorm room which ended up better for us. The bathroom was clean but very small. They charge for towels, not good! Breakfast was included but we did not eat it as it was just bread! As the hostel is located in little india we would much prefer some proper indian breakfast at the tekka centre just down the road which is brilliant.

    We got a room with a private bathroom. We are outside most of the day but we find the room comfortable to sleep in. Airconditioning was good, plus it has a fan. It has a good location because it is near the MRT and is situated in Little India. They do not provide towel but they have hot shower. They have unlimited bread with margarine/jam/peanut butter and coffee/choco during breakfast time. Staff were also friendly.

    Pros: The receptionist is a Filipina. Near little India mrt station, about 500 mts. Near mustafa center (24hrs mall). Clean toilet despite shared by other travelers. With breakfast but not heavy, only bread and coffee. (im used to with rice as breakfast). provides service to airport at S$9 per head but if you do not have a lot of baggage then better used the mrt,a lot cheaper. con: we were not informed regarding the schedule of house keeping which is between 11am-2pm, we took a bath within the house keeping hours and the caretaker scold us. haha we just ignored him but still not a very good customer experience. all in all still,a good place to stay.

    no towel breakfast was just toastbread from the supermarket, but there are many cheap eats nearby such as the Tekka centre Location is great in little india, subway and mall within walking distance There were no quiet hours suggested. And this guy in the dorm was on the phone for hours. Inconsiderate people are not the hostels fault, but promoting quiet hours would help against people working while living in hostels, while in the dorm room.

    Provides easy access to the city center via MRT or bus. Staff is accommodating and front desk is always ready to assist you. Free breakfast that is included consists bread and jam, butter or peanut butter along with coffee, hot chocolate, or tea. Beds are clean and pillows are soft (too soft probably, just bring an extra travel-sized one if you are not into that). Great wifi connection, and small but very functional bathroom. Lots of restaurants available near the hostel, mostly Muslim and Hindi cuisine (Tekka [hawker] Centre is also near). Perfect for backpackers and budget travellers.
