    Very nice”

    The stay was one of the best ones I've ever had. Location: very convenient to get around with so many bus stations around Staff: they were helpful showing me around and provided everything that was needed Room and bed: interior is nice, very calming. Has a common place for breakfast and chilling around. They even have a rooftop area that looked super nice (didn't have the time to take a rest there). The bed is clean and blanket is provided. I was placed right beside the door which I thought would disturb my sleep, but earplugs are provided so I was able to get a good rest. Breakfast: There were fruits and toast with pb, chocolate, butter, jam. You can also have tea nad coffee. It was better than I expected.

    Perfect hostel for a couple nights backpacking in Singapore”

    Cool little hostel with a funky, fun vibe. Facilities were good, and the location was excellent walking distance to a number of restaurants and amenities. The one small thing was that the pillows were a little uncomfortable, so if you really travelling I’d advise to bring your own! Other than that it was a great stay, would definitely recommend.

    The hostel is very nice. The breakfast area is not the biggest one when it's busy. The only thing is the location even though you got the MRT really close I would recommend staying closer to Chinatown maybe. In terms of hostel for 1 or 2 night, it makes the work! Staff are very friendly n helpful.

    The place was clean with a nice scent of lemon/lime. Staffs were accomodating and approachable. ”

    It's near to MRT/Bus stations, good breakfast, safe/clean place and free coffee/water all day. Though the restrooms don't have bidets and the springs of the mattresses were a little annoying but these didn't make this place less. The wall decors were giving you the highlights of where to go. We booked for 8 bunk beds as we were six, but they gave us 10 bunk beds upon check in, with no top up costs! We enjoy our stay in SG! Thank you for the nice accomodation and friendly staffs, especially the Filipina lady :-)

    Very good”

    The hostel is very nice. The breakfast area is not the biggest one when it's busy. The only thing is the location even though you got the MRT really close I would recommend staying closer to Chinatown maybe. In terms of hostel for 1 or 2 night, it makes the work! Staff are very friendly n helpful.

    Helpful and friendly staffs. Management flexible and understanding. .Value for money and a place you can rest your head comfortably and peace of mind if lockers were avail in the rooms rather than outside which could be improved .

    The place was clean with a nice scent of lemon/lime. Staffs were accomodating and approachable. ”

    It's near to MRT/Bus stations, good breakfast, safe/clean place and free coffee/water all day. Though the restrooms don't have bidets and the springs of the mattresses were a little annoying but these didn't make this place less. The wall decors were giving you the highlights of where to go. We booked for 8 bunk beds as we were six, but they gave us 10 bunk beds upon check in, with no top up costs! We enjoy our stay in SG! Thank you for the nice accomodation and friendly staffs, especially the Filipina lady :-)

    Everything is good.”

    Good location, toilets and showers were clean and dry all the time, I stayed in a private twin room. Everything was good, but I'm not so comfortable during my sleep, I can felt the spring inside the mattress.
