From hostel to Boon Keng MRT is only 3mins. Next hostel has local restaurant + mini shop... Room & WC are clear. However, I can hear everything (voice, footstep...) at outside in my room.

4 Bed Family Room (Price per room)
Stayed 2 nights in November 2018
just okay”
We booked a 4 bed in family room. The room is quite small and if you are or have a big guy or a tall person in your group I guess this is not for you. No enough space to our luggage :( I know this is a back packing hostel so i guess a group or a family would not be a good idea for stay. But the good side is, the HOST are very ACCOMODATING, they will assist and answers all your inquiries. They will also suggest where you can buy the cheapest chocolates, foods and etc... Their service are great! Two thumbs up I will book this hostel again if I do solo 😊

suitable place for low budget traveler”
If you are a traveler w/ low budget, u can choose this hostel as your place to stay in Singapore. Hostel location is near bus stop, just walk around 10 meter from hostel to bus stop. And its near MRT too ( Boon Keng MRT), just walk around 200m to the MRT from the hostel. The room is comfortable enough for me.. they have 2 bathroom, so sometimes, in the crowded time, u will need to wait in queue but its still bearable to me.. the staffs are helpful too, so i have no problem while stay here.

wifi is poor inside the room. the receptionist is somehow friendly but strict and not fair. he didnt even bother to listen to me when i was telling him that my roommate is irritating. she’s a grump. if she couldnt adjust with other people, she should rent a single room. she acted like she rented the 6 beds mixed dormitory. terrible roommate!

We had a great time. The place is easy to find closest MRT is Boon Keng station exit C. The staff are very nice. We’re able to drop off our bags since we arrive early. The room is clean. Cr is clean as well, it’s a shared bathroom but we never experienced queueing just to use it. Highly recommended for solo and group traveller. We will definitely book the place again...

ONE TOILET for 2O beds. Thiink about that. ONE TOILET for 2O beds. ONE TOILET for both men and women. Girls, do you want to use ONE TOILET that men use too? Men & Women, do you want to stand in line for ONE TOILET? Think about it. Why don't the other reviews say anything? Because many are bogus reviews written by the boss. ONE TOILET is a fact.

Basic but clean hostel. Only two showers / toilets at the ground floor which was at times inconvenient, but normal for hostels in this price range. Beds were good, lighting is broken in some parts but will be fixed. Alice tried hard to make sure my stay was a comfortable one. Also worth mentioning that the lobby is like a living room, making it easy to meet other travellers. Many other hostels in this price range do not have this.

“Not so many gaps, a good hostel in Singapore””
Arrived here past midnight on the 18th of March 2017. This is located some 3 - 5 minute walk from Boon Keng MRT Station. The hostel is on Lavender Street. This street has some a few other hostels as well. Upon arriving, the guy at the reception was so kind enough to take me in and show me the room. I had a 4 bunk room. Took a lower bunk. The AC was working well as well as the ceiling fan. The hostel is clean and organized and they serve simple breakfast of toasted bread and coffee/tea. Wifi is super fast as well. Would love to go back there in case I am in Singapore. Stayed March 2017, traveled solo

Staffs are so supportive and friendly, the hostel is really close to MRT, especially bus stop. The common area is comfortable. Wifi connection is poor and unstable inside the room and in peak hours. Breakfast should have more choices. There is only 1 toilet and one bathroom and there are many bugs flying around, which is quite inconvenient. The bathroom is sometimes smelly. No microwave, shampoo or body wash provided.

Do not stay here. There’s no value added for the amount you pay for the room. The whole place is filthy. They have a no shoes policy that I was forced to break because I refuse to walk with no shoes over there. The toilets aren’t clean either and you have two showers for about 20 people: Breakfast is minimum, only bread hot water and instant coffee. The guy at reception? A robot would be better because at least he would be there when you need it. Not recommended at all.
