    Good price for good location
    After staying countless times in this hostel over the past few months, this is probably going to be my last stay here as I have really fully explored and reviewed this hostel and the surrounding area. In a nutshell, if you have budget constraint and wish to look a bed in a hostel located near the MRT station and bus terminal, this is the right place.

    My 8th stay”
    The location of this hostel is excellent
    This is my eighth stay in this nice and conveniently located hostel. I was exploring many other options (some were priced lower or offering more features) for my last minute accommodation needs. After careful consideration, I still ended up coming back to this place since the location is simply too convenient, especially on a rainy day when one can actually walk from the hostel under the sheltered path to the MRT train station which is just around the corner.

    My fourth stay in this conveniently located hostel”
    Nice and good food just around the corner
    This is my fourth stay in this nice hostel conveniently located to many attractions, most notably the wide choices of food at reasonable price range. I took a walk around the hostel area to map out the surrounding 1km radius and was spoilt with the selections of food eateries but I ended up with the Dim Sum Restaurant located at the edge along the same road of the hostel. The dishes were fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. Make sure you try the Prawn Dumpling Soup!

    My third stay, still as ideal as the previous stay”
    The room offers good spacing layout and decent ceiling height
    This is my third stay at this hostel whom I started to feel more at home. I have been staying at differnt bed in different room hence am able to compare the experience for review. For this stay I was being assigned the upper bed at the left corner furthest away from the entrance of dormitory 1 which offers good spacing layout and decent ceiling height. I have the best sleeping experience ever in this hostel during this stay.

    Great location with interesting surrounding areas
    This is my third but definitely not the last stay in this hostel whereby the location is well positioned within interesting surrounding areas. I arrived earlier during the day of check-in and my leisure walkabout around the vincinity of this hostel was simply eye-opening. Apart from countless food choices, there are many interesting attractions awaiting adventurous people to explore...

    My second stay, and am counting on more to come”
    Strategically located to MRT train station
    This is my second stay at this hostel. I arrived on the day when it was raining heavily and this made me realising that this hostel is the only place I have stayed so far with a sheltered walkway all the way from MRT station to the hostel entrance. Despite the heavy downpir, I arrived at the entrance without a single raindrop from head to toe.

    My first stay here, felt OK in overall...”
    The hostel staff really loves her job
    This is my first stay at this medium-sized hostel, the spacing and layout are above average, but the rate I am paying for 1 night, I have no complaints whatsoever. I arrived late beyond midnight and I was surprised to see that the staff is still on duty waiting for late check-in guests. By the time I finished checking-in, it was already almost 1am but she is still staying back to wait for several other guests arriving later than me, this is amazing service for a hostel employee, unless she herself is the owner...

    Do not judge the book by its cover”
    I ysed to book a hotel and it is my first time to book a hostel for it is near in the conference area. I am hesitant at first when I saw a man with a tatoo, but the man with a tatoo is very kind and accomodating. I love seeing people in the morning having a free coffee and bread. It is like a home for everyine as I can see. It just annoyed me with one of the guest keep fighting with someone iver the ohone that distract my sleep. I wish they could make a rule posted in each room that no one is allowed to make loud conversation inside the room when someone is sleeping. I suggest that they will provide 1 sleeper in every bathroom and shower room so that our feet will not be dirty. Diffinitely I will be back again for the second conference. Thanks for your kindness Urban Hostel. See you next time.

    Do Not Judge the Book by its cover”
    It is my frst time to use hostel house, since it is near to the conference center I opted to book here. At first I saw a tatooed man, but when I spoke with him and enter the place, I seeing different people I started to settle down. The place is like a family, the man is too kind and very accomodating. I love the fact thatbthey provided bread, coffee, hot water each day, it is not difficult talking to them. The only thing that annoyed me is the speaking chinese woman that stayed as a guest who keep fighting words with someone over the phone while we are sleeping. I just suggest that Urban will make a strict rule for the guest not to talk or to make a call inside the room and post it in every room. I will diffinitely return here on my next seminar, but I wish they will have a sleeper inside each shower room and toilet. Thanks Urban for making our visit just like home.

    ok for 1 night if not spending much time there”
    hostel super close to Aljunied station and lots of cheap places to eat which is great. However, you could feel all the springs coming through the mattress which was uncomfortable as was the pillow. no blanket/sheet provided but a very old threadbare towel was so used that to cover myself. The bathrooms weren't great and the toilets barely flushed so skipped on the shower, so can't comment as to what that was like. beds were also very creaky and anytime anyone turned it was very loud. This was very cheap for singapore so if on a very tight budget, this will do if not staying here long. It was twice the price to turn up and book as it was to book on agoda. I booked agoda whilst standing in the reception area.

    The employee is as rude as ir can be. She needed a xerox of my booking so she wanted me ti pay SGN$0.50 so we argued. I don't have to pay if she still lives in paper age. In the dormitory was occupied by job seekers who don't respect no one. Every single day I had this one guy under my bunk bed complaining about nothing. CLEAN..... do the owners know what that is????

    It's a good place specially if you wanna travel around Singapore. If any questions or issues just ask the receptionist Marbella and she will attend to you and give you her good advice. she is a loving and caring woman. Glad to meet her and stayed in the urban hostel
