Speechless”
Reached at 12pm that requested for early check in as owner says that rooms are not ready yet so I accepted it however 10mins later a guy was given an immediate check in ... Funny ? Anyway I am a local (singaporean) but I choose to book from agoda as I am a frequent traveller . Owner choose to put me into a room packed with Singaporeans (long term residents of the hostel ) so never mind I accepted it as I don't have a choice . Went into the room got a terrible shock , I indeed book for a 14beds dorm but the situation was unfathomable . I was sleeping right besides the toilet the air con and fan , ok no problem I accepted it . I was together in a room with a ladyboy (resident as well) and she was most probably working on the streets . No offence but I really isn't sure what will happen to me if some scratches or fluid comes to me and I get sick ( should know what I mean right ) All I can say is owner thinks that Singaporeans should stay together and all of us are dirty .

Nearby Bugis Market”
The location was very great! It was near with Rochor MRT (you can take Rochor station instead of Bugis!). It was just 5 minutes walked from Rochor station. And around 10 minutes walk to Bugis market and Bugis junction. The staff was very helpful. Breakfast was quite good, hot milk tea and toast. You can find India/ moslem/ halal food around.

Great Stay”
Nice place to stay. enough facilities to the price. Since this is not a hotel and it's a hostel you cannot expect luxury stay on here. But it's very safe and rooms are very clear. Staff is very friendly. They have special discount tickets for all the attention in Singapore.

Sinple and basic. Small blankets”
My big gripe is that the blankets are too small and with air con, the room gets cold so its hard to slkep. Otherwise this hostel is near to a mosque so lots of muslims come here. It's fairly cheap, near to Rocher MRT and offers a basic breakfast of peanut butter and jam on toast. The attic feels a bit cramped especially in the toilets where the low ceilings are noticeable. Other dorms are ok, the beds don't move much but you nay not always have an electric plug and there are no curtains or individual lights. They have 1 computer to use but it was free a reasonable amount of the time.
