High tech hostel with modern furnishings”

clean, well-maintained, strong internet, air-conditioned, secure

I enjoyed my stay at the Moni Gallery Hostel. It is close to the Lavender MRT station and borders Little India. The rooms were spacious, air-conditioned and spotlessly clean. The wireless internet worked well and there was a kitchen where you could drink from a water cooler. There was even a recreation room on the second floor.

Homely and Clean small hotel to stay ”

reasonable price in great location

During my stay in Moni Gallery Hostel, I mostly feel satisfied with all conditions of the hostel. The cleanliness, the location, the service are some conditions to mention. Compared with hotel, this hostel has some advantages, those are home feeling atmosphere for the guest like me so that I can do any activities such as making some food based on my own tastes since pantry is provided, browsing internet easily, etc. I think this hostel is very good place to stay for anybody.

If you are on an adventure in this foreign country and would want to be smart in budgeting your money for your trip, Moni Gallery Hostel is the best place to stay in Singapore. It's located at the heart of the city state. It's very clean, and well maintained. Not to mention the unlimited and 24/7 free breakfast and wifi. Two thumbs up!

Nice and clean place to stay ”

clean, quiet, cost is reasonable close to shops, hawkers and 7 eleven stores where you can find all your basic needs when travelling

I and my sister arrived at Moni Gallery Hostel from Changi Airport at around midnight (sunday) and at first we were so worried because lights were turned off and we thought we're gonna wait for sunrise before we could check-in but the good news was LATE CHECK-IN is allowed at this small yet comfortable hotel. If you know how to commute in singapore, the hotel is one of the most convenient places to stay. All you have to do is to buy/reload a contactless smart card (e.g EZ Link or NETS, etc...) at mrt stations or more conveniently at 7 eleven stores, top it up with enough credit you need while staying in singapore, then you can hop on and off buses and mrts and enjoy sightseeing places at a cheaper cost. Of course, as much as possible, don't forget to bring a bus map of singapore. If you can't have one, you can see the routes at bus stops or may ask bus drivers for directions upon boarding. In singapore, most bus drivers can speak good english. Another option is to ask the hotel's staff for guided or package tours. Moni Hotel is just one bus-ride to major sights and hotels such as suntec city, botanic gardens (Bukit Timah entrance), orchard road (Ngee Ann City) and most of all, the hotel is close to shopping malls like Mustafa Centre (opens 24/7)and City Square Mall and it is also just few minutes away on foot to Little India (along Serangoon Road) where we can buy cheap souvenirs and eat cheap and good singaporean and malaysian food. If you become tired of walking, no problem, there is a restaurant just across the hotel. To sum things up, we really had a nice and memorable time at this hotel decorated with art works which made it even more relaxing to stay.

Excellent location, friendly and quiet”

near the SMRT, quiet, more free amenities offered than most hotels, friendly staff

Found the place really easy, but if you are not sure exactly where it is, you can take the virtual tour. There are two exits, the one you need to take is not the one closest to wear the ticket booth is. You have to walk underground for a little bit, but once you do and go up the escalator to the main road; you can't help but see the hostel right in front of you. It is just like they say on their website. The service is great, free use of computers, a reading room, TV room and room to sit outside and enjoy a coffee if you like. You can even buy food at a local 7 eleven and use the refrigerator. Just make sure to use the marker and put your bed number and name on it before placing it the fridge. Coffee is 1 Singapore dollar and the machine only takes 20 cent coins. I found it better just to buy some 3 in 1 stick at the 7 eleven and make my own. They have a machine with hot and cold water as well as cups, bowls, plates and silverware (all free to use), just wash them when done. The bed was comfortable and the pillow was great as well. All in all I found it a great place to relax, especially if you intend on spending most of your time walking around. Great value for the money!!!
