The hostel is rather close to aljunied MRT station. the location is strategic and not very noisy. I stayed 3 days and its cheap. there are Lockers, AC, Wifi, PC, TV and Some Toilets (But very small). The room is small, You even need to discharge your stuffs outside the room. But overall it is good and clean.

Prices change constantly as according to vacancy and particular days which is not only annoying but greedy and they do not offer discount for continued stay or direct booking (which cost even more!). Prices are updated frequently to reflect occupancy and days of the week or holidays. Also there’s a few long term guests (locals or foreign workers) monopolizing the... More

Very small hotel, the rooms are dirty and unkempt. Toilet and bathroom was broken, the smell of urine in the entrance and stairs. Bed linen was not ironed. Its advantages just because cheap and very close to the MRT station

DO NOT STAY HERE!!! The good things: close to MRT & the Price. The bad: We got there after we found a cheap offer on the internet and decided to book on site since we were already in the singapore area. The lady, who runs the place, didn`t accept the price, shown on the internet and tried to charge us... More

Average hostel.very cheap and near the Aljunied station. The owner was not very friendly but no problem for me. Clean enough. Have a massage chair so you can rest there after walking trip through singapore.

The only reasons to stay here are location and price. It is just around the corner from the Aljunied MRT station and there are some hawker food stalls and a 7-11 down the street. However, this was the most awful customer service I've had in a long time. First, I stayed at WOW Hostel across the street, which is owned... More

I have never received such a rude welcome in all my life. We booked on hostelworld and arrived to be told there were hidden costs. Hostel is shabby at best and the manager is a horrible horrible woman. Avoid this hostel at all costs.

This is the worst hostel I have stayed in in my 4 months of traveling south-east asia. We arrived and had to deal with the rudest hotel manager I have ever encountered who treated us like we were an absolute inconvenience being there. We were then given a double bed in a dorm room despite me and my friend paying... More
