      As a whole did not enjoy the stay. ”
      Pro: location Cons: We stayed in the hostel (cheapest I could find) for $15USD a night per person. Although this is not outrageous, it would’ve been possible to spend a little more for two people and rent a private room (which we wish we would have done). They require you to take your shoes off at the landing below the Enterance, my shoes were stolen out of the cubby and the lobby spelled like feet. The only toilets were on the first floor (we were on the second) so the second floor showers smelled like pee all the time. They also advertise a free breakfast which is white bread and butter, to me that is not “breakfast”. The staff was nice however there were two local gentlemen who had self proclaimed been staying for over 4 months and were yelling at guests as though they were staff. Generally the beds were not bad and the rooms were clean but not worth the hassle when for a little more you could rent a cheap hotel or AirBnB.

      No individual pods. Classic style bunk beds. The staff do not speak English but they're handy with a translator for passing on vital info. Breakfast is included but it consists of bread. Nice place. Price seemed good for Singapore although I don't have much to compare it to.

      with prices being high this is an option, but don't expect anything. I'm glad I only stayed one night. The staff doesn't talk ... they put me in a room full of men, being a girl. All those guys wondered why they didn't care... bathrooms not the best... breakfast have no idea where or if they have it, no sign, no one tells u anything, bad wifi.

      The location is amazing. The hostel is close to everywhere just needing to use subway to go to Airport, Little India and Sentosa. However the room and bathroom are OK, and it doesn’t have kitchen and the breakfast offer is almost nonexistent.

      The bathroom and toilets are always wet and smelly”
      The bathroom and toilet are always wet and smelly, they didn't clean up or wash them for at least 2 days. The carpets on the bathroom floor were not change and used for a very long time, as I have stayed there for 3 days but they didn't change it at all in that period. There is no space for you to turn or move in the toilet as it doesn't meet the minimum space requirement. The sound insulation is poor too as I stayed in a room near to the main road, and I can also hear the noise coming from the other rooms too.

      Very disappointing stay”
      The receptionist was very rude when accomodating us when we reached by 8 pm. first he informed that there is no 4 bed dormitory available even though we had done advance booking more than a week back. he was offering 6 bed dormitory which is unfair as we paid price for 4 bed dormitory and wanted privacy. on further insisting he called his owner over whatsapp call and he said owner might be asleep. i told him to give a normal call as we were tired on the flight journey. then after 5 mins we got 4 bed dormitory. dont know why he refused first. simple he wasted our time as most of restaurants get closed early. then we asked for converter adapter for our mobile charging. he said we dont have. next day we saw a lady receptionist. i again asked for converter and she was kind enough to give us a converter adapter. overall i wouldnt recommend this hostel. if u find alternate hostel go for that.

      Overall a good place to stay, the downside is that there's just a limited space in the rooms so it's a little tough to unpack/pack especially if you're assigned to the top of the bunker bed.
