The Hostel recieved the booking via booking.com. That's the reason, why the breakfast wasn't free but cheap.

Not Worth the Price”
Pros: Adequate staff, good breakfast spread, easy check-in/check-out Cons: Small and crammed rooms, EXTREMELY shaky and noise bunk bed frames that creaked incessantly all night, noisy location right by a busy bus stop, small and dirty bathrooms, lack of adequate sitting in a big empty waiting area, and LAST BUT NOT LEAST, so many better options in the same price range of S$10-18 along the SAME STREET!

The only good thing about this hostel is the cheap price. The bathrooms were mouldy and smelled due to there being no ventilation. Beds were noisy. Despite calling itself a backpacker's hostel there were hardly any backpackers. Most guests seemed to be families or working in Singapore, which made for a strange atmosphere.

Only good for a short stay”
When we arrived , there is no one at reception. We've waited so long. Need pay 30$ as deposit. The bed is annoying, keep noisy the whole night whenever I make a small move. I couldn't even sleep at all. Luckily roomates are nice and we had a good talking. There are only 2 toilets and 2 bathrooms. Very small and suffocating. The shower get they provided is no fragrance no foam at all. I had to use my own shower gel. They give no towels , no toothbrushes. The bed sheets are dirty I think. I even got allergic itchy rash on my arms and hands.

Very Good Stay”
Location, Friendly Staff, Price
Stayed in a 6-pax Family Room located upstairs and might not be recommended for older guests or those with difficulty in walking. Otherwise, the room was spacious and the beds comfortable enough. 1.Location - very near to Kallang Station, short walking distance. Also, there's a bus stop right in front, just make sure you know what bus number your're taking. 2.Breakfast - very basic bread and a variety of spreads (peanut-butter and nutella eat-all-you-can!!!)cereal, milk, coffee. 3.staff - Jeremiah is very friendly and helpful and makes sure guests are well attended too.

we stay in family room (6 beds). The hotel is just 5 months in operation, very clean, just 400m from Kallang MRT. Staffs are very helpful & friendly. The hotel price is considerably cheap. We check-out in morning after breakfast, drop our luggage and pick-up in afternoon after sightseeing... surprisingly they offer us to shower... really a good service. VERY RECOMENDED!

The Best got better”
My first trip was last month and I called it the BEST PRICE I have ever gotten for a night stay in Singapore - 1 dorm bed S$12. WOW! First in all my 15 years travelling to SG. Then this time with som AGODA 24hours offer + last book thing I get a coupon - only S$11 a night. Can't complain about anything paying this much to spend a night in SG with bed, aircon, free wifi &bathroom facilities!

Best Price for dorm bed in 15 years!”
Came to SG to do media coverage for a convention in Marina Bay Sands. I got the BEST price for a dorm bed I have a ever gotten in all my 15 years traveling to Singapore from Malaysia. S$11 a night for a bed in a room of 12. Staff was very help full even as I arrived late. Bed was fine, had plug points, mini light & most importantly a locker that cold actually fit an airplane hand carry suitcase! Down side - there were 6 rooms (my room had 12 beds) on my floor but only 2 toilets (1 male 1 female). Male toilet only had 2 sinks, 2 showers & 2 toilet bowls. I wouldn't want to experience a FULL HOUSE day -__- As I arrived late, it was unfortunate that some male had left a mess of used toilet rolls by the sink, and it stayed there till the next evening. It's already cramped... I really didn't appreciate the mess. No table chair outside to work. Plug point didn't work. At the end of the day, S$11 a bed (per night) w bus stop across d road & MRT station 7 mind away - how am I to complain :)

This place is where the MRT is very accessible especially for people who would frequently be travelling when in Singapore. I recommend this place to any travelers. Aside from being cost-effective, this place is very comfortable, even the all-female dormitory where I stayed for 3 nights during my visit to Singapore.

Only consider this hostel when you are on an extremely tight budget.”
Pros: This hostel is very close to the Kallang MRT (EW10) Station. The staff is capable of speaking a variety of languages. We checked-out at 5am and the friendly staff was there to help us. There is a hair dryer provided in the female washroom. Cons: The female washroom on 2nd floor is terribly small. In an area of 8 sqm (approx.), there are 2 shower rooms, 2 toilets, and 2 basins. My elbows kept knowing against the wall when washing my hair and my knees touched the door when using the toilet. One of the shower room can't be locked and one of the sink was blocked. As for the room, in my case, water from the male washroom (which is located just beside my room) leaked through wall, making the whole room smells moldy and pungent. The kitchen where breakfast is provided smells bad as well.

Maybe it's time for owner to upgrade the electrical facilities, such as air-con, the air-con in my room is the old model air-con, hehexxxx..... And the fan in the room, it's time to clean up the dusts. The staff is very kind.... Thumbs for the guy staff at receptionist 👍 There a lot of Chinese Steamboat Restaurant, if you love 东北菜 (Northeast China's food), you can enjoy them very much, plus China Beer 😋
