Totally worth every penny spent”
Requested a low floor upon booking and it got arranged which is very much appreciated. The staff was helpful and friendly. The room was clean, not smelly, air conditioning was old but worked well. The hostel is just within 5 minutes walking distance from Bugis MRT station. There are 7-11 & bus stand right across the street which is really convenient. They even prepared a light breakfast. The bathroom is equipped with water heater. In conclusion, accommodation in Singapore is known to be pricey. If you have REASONABLE expectation with the price you pay for, you will find satisfaction staying in Hawaii Hostel.
Outstanding value in expensive Singapore”
Hawaii Hostel is the last survivor of a bunch of Bencoolen Street hostels I've been using for over 40 years. The place is basic, but offers outstanding value in this downtown fringe area. It's quiet, clean enough, and one can get a (small) room to oneself for the price of a dorm bed elsewhere. WiFi is good and there's even a basic breakfast Monday to Saturday. Highly recommended!
Good value in the heart of Bencoolen St.”
I've reviewed Hawaii Hostel previously and don't have much to add. It's good value in an expensive city. It's well located. You get what you pay for in this life and Hawaii Hostel is unpretentious albeit basic. It's the last of a large number of somewhat old yet value for money places in Bencoolen St and surrounds - long may it continue!
Cheapest in the city!”
Hotel is located in front of the bus stop in which buses there can take you to almost anywhere in the city, Chinatown, Harbourfront, Marina, etc. MRT a mere 5 min walk to Bugis Junction. Commom shower and toilet. Towels and blankets are provided on each guest. They allow to leave your luggage after checkout time if you still have itinerary on checkout day. But no lift in this hostel, request for a 2nd floor room if abailable. Amenities like toaster, mini pantry is located in the 3rd floor. A/c works very good and room gets very cold after a few minutes. Friendly staff especially Steve. Owner is very kind. Recommended for those in tight budget.
I got a room at 4th floor. I think you should request before you check out. Their have a free hot water, since at Singapore mineral water is so pricey, it help me to live in. The staff is so kind. Location, in front of IBIS Hotel, +- 500 m from Bugis.
it's worth for backpacker”
if you are backpacker and need some privacy, i recommend you this hostel. i can sleep without worry to others. it's enough with its price.
value for money ”
cukup baik untuk yg hanya menginginkan tempat istirahat (mandi dan tidur), setelah seharian berkeliling singapore. saya menyewa kamar triple bed. hanya ada 2 tempat tidur ukuran Quenn, wastafel da. meja rias. ukuran kamar sangag kecil, tapi masih di rasa cukup. kadang, ada suara air dari paralon air yg ada di dalam kamar, ac nga sangat dingin. merema memberi kami 3 towel dan sabun bulat kecil. air panas tersedia di common room, bisa buat seduh mie instant. lokasi sangat dekat, bersebrangan dengan Hotel Ibis, dekat dengan pusat oleh-oleh Bugis. value for money
Gross Place. Attentive staff. ”
Geezzz!!! Super gross!!! Floor (super dirty with dust all over, curtains (gross!! geez! i think it hasn’t been change for years) , hallway (cigar butts in every corner and stairs). I never had a hood night sleep. I know i booked a cheap room, but hey, atleast give us a cleaner one. Anyway, the staff (younger guy) is very attentive and accommodating. I was requesting for rooms that has windows coz God knows i can’t live even few minutes on that very hot hallway and no ventilation. Cockroaches the first to welcome me upon opening the first room. I’m really thankful to that staff who accommodated my request to change to room with window. Surely, will not go back here again. I love the area though coz it is just near Bugis.
SIN Jan 26- 29”
No frills no thrills property. Perfect location to be at the bargain district of SG at Bugis. Close to 3 train lanes: Blue, Green and Red. But theres opportunity in the toilet & common bathrooms to be clean enough for common use. Please put cover on the floor drain as its yuckky to see waste water all the time.
ONLY if you're ready to live in a horrible place with good location and price”
Place is really horrible, be ready that rooms even smaller than they look on photo. Mainly chinese live. Do not look at words breakfast - that's a shame, better they didn't offer any breakfast - they give you a plastic plate with 4 pieces of cheap bread and a plastic cup with boiled egg inside. Then you go upstairs and can get some stinky tea from old aluminium boiler or cheap chemical jam with margarine for your bread. That's it. Forget about anything else. One more thing shocked me. Power plugs didn't fit my chargers - I went to him and ask if he has an adaptor. THEY HAVE BUT THEY SELL IT TO YOU! They dont' just give it to you - you have to buy it for 2 dollars. But what the hell, it's right in central Singapore, we got double room for very cheap price. Think guys.
Served it's purpose.”
This was a very basic hostel! Rooms are small and although ours had a shower, toilet and wash basin facilities are shared! There were some ants in the bed but they did not cause any problems! We were only looking for a place to get some sleep between flights, so this served it's purpose, but at $50 a night a bit much! We did not have the breakfast, but as we went past in the morning we see 4 slices of bread and a plastic cup laid out on plates! There was no window in the room, which was actually a plus for trying to sleep during the day! Another plus was good Wi-fi.
a nice place to stay around bugis”
it was nice, we have double bed with sink in our room, the place was quite good for backpacker/small family to stay, just infront of opp.bencoolen bus stop..near by bugis, not hard to find food anytime,7-11 just infront if this place, free shuttle bus to sentosa will pick u up at this bus stop everymorning at 9.30 Am. very nice staff.
Very central hotel, nice and warm staff”
This hotel is for people who are not fussy about spartan accommodation. It's really basic, but good location within walking distance of China town and marina bay. Also harbour front is just 5 stops by mrt.
Good location, clean but not that clean”
We found this place to be in a great location to getting around great places in the city. The aircon work, and the bed wasn't too hard. I didn't feel too safe leaving my stuff locked in my room, but nothing bad happened to it. Singapore is a very expensive city, and this place was more affordable and close to a lot of great places.
Is this even a hotel?”
It's hard to find the location. You have to take stairs to lobby and to rooms, very inconvenient for those who bring luggage. The room is soo small and not clean. At least air-con works. We booked the room with shower and the shower works just fine, thank goodness. Breakfast can be considered none at all (few breads and they're gone in a minute). Toilet is outside and we have to queue. Overall, I could get better hostel with same price elsewhere. The positive point is it's near Bugis area.
I booked a single room with shower. But when I arrived there, the receptionist said that price is for single room without shower and if I take single room with shower, it will cost 8 more SGD. I took with shower as I communicated to Agoda and I was told that that 8SGD will be reimbursed. Actually the shower is just so call shower which is just like a bigger size sink on the floor at the corner of room. So it is not really worthy for that price.
Nothing special ”
Don’t expect to much Singapore is expensive, everything is broken, everything is dirty, and funky smell! But staff are friendly, wifi is good and location is good for single rooms :)
Cost saving- this is best choice if you would like to have private room with cheap price
Early Winter Time”
Value for the money while traveling through Singapore for 12 night Cruise.
Not bad, I were stay there for a couple night. Nearest to Sim Lim Square IT mall. and close to Bugis street too.
