I was working night shift at Kovan and I living around Outram Road. I knew it's late and noisy after my shift ends during CNY at my house whereas my neighbours make noise pollution so I Iikely decided to drop by in this hostel first time to sleep over for just two of us. I consider this as our honeymooners 😄❤ we booked a private room just for only about 9 hours. I have no complaints of how room is lookalike as long as I have a better night sleep 💤 Yes when I entered I can hear next door guests talking. DUN MIND that the wall is soundproof anyway. The room is fairly clean I give this a two thumbs up 👍👍

Everything else is quite disappointing and quite disgusting - nothing like the pictures shown. I stayed there for 4 nights and it was a mistake. The only value from this place is the close proximity to a few MRT lines and Bugis area. I stayed in the Attic storey, which was on the 3rd floor. The room is divided into two, so each half shares a bathroom. My half consisted of 6 beds, two fans, and a half-decent air conditioner. Here are a few major things to complain about: SPACE - Not much place for you to put your things in such a small space; just a small shelf and a couple hooks if they aren't broken. I ended up hanging my wet towel and sweaty clothes on my bed frame and posts. I highly recommend renting a locker to be safe from pests and theft. PESTS - On the last night, I found that there is a pretty serious rat infestation. My backpack was gnawed through by rats. I found out that they were actually attacking my bag and made a gaping hole, I threw the snacks into the waste bin, which they then later started attacking. At least five or more fought over the food all night long. I brought it up to the front desk (who I'm guessing is the owner/manager) when I checked out in the morning that there was a pest problem. He just smiled at me and said nothing because there were other people who came in to check in. I uploaded a photo of my eaten bag. CLEANLINESS - Given that there is a major rat problem here, you should be careful everywhere. Don't walk barefeet. Fortunately, the sheets, pillows, and blanket looked and smelled clean. The bathroom was "cleaned" every two days. There were used shampoo bottles and garbage from previous guests in the room and bathroom floor the whole time I was there. The toilet paper wasn't replaced. Not much space to put your belongings in the bathroom to avoid getting soaked. There is a huge musty smell throughout the place from the lack of ventilation. SIMCARD - The hostel says they would provide a simcard to use during your stay. They didn't get any new simcards and the existing ones were expired.

The room was converted from a utility room with the bathroom smaller than a closet. At first all seems decent except for the price. The elderly man at the front desk meets you with a smile. The bed is as comfortable as a dish sponge, the room smells like the sweetness of sickening urinal tablets. The air conditioning is weak at best. At an outrageous $90 a night you would expect some basics, but alas you are left wanting. Wanting a bed sheet, because there are none. Wanting a towel after a shower, got to pay extra for that! Want a universal plug in the wall, nothing like that because you have to rent it. Then in the morning I was just a few minutes late for breakfast and the kind faced owner says "Sorry closed". I respond like a beggar, "Any leftovers?", and he says again "Sorry it is closed". Started the day out disappointed with the place, the service, the setup, and the service of selfishness.

Booked this budget-friendly HOSTEL w/ private bathroom for 4pax. BIG CHECK ON PRIVATE BATHROOM, we prefer private bathrooms than common ones. It's not as clean as hotels but it's better than what most reviews portray it to be. We stayed in a family room in the 1st floor, no window room though but 1 queen bed and 1 double deck. It's spacious, with mirror and cabinet for things. Not the cleanest cabinet, if you are particular. Bathroom is good enough w/ working heater. Their blankets have seen better days though (they look more like towels, the one I got); sheets changed once in 5 days. Trash emptied every day but bathroom tissue not replenished. Sockets everywhere so no problem charging phones/laptops. We have 5 dual electrical outlets in our room for 4 people. Room needs improvement on cleanliness (smells musty; there's an exhaust but not as enough) but we're out the whole day and for its price, THIS IS A STEAL. We'd rather spend SGD120 (5D/4N) we saved for food. Various food choices nearby. Location is exceptional as it is smack in the middle of Jalan Besar (via Upper Weld Road) and Rochor Stations (Turn right to Perak St and the MRT is there!). We did DIY walking tours in the 3 early mornings to Mustafa, Tekka Centre, Kampong Glam, Haji Lane, and Bugis. Very accessible to cheap local food as well; hotel 1.5L water is cheap. Breakfast is coffee and toast with peanut butter, jam, and butter. Towels need to be rented with deposit. The owner and staff are accomodating. It’s a hostel so don’t expect it to be top notch but we’re okay with it since we are out the whole day. OH, AND OWNER GIVES FREE 500MB SIM CARD.

I was looking for rooms for 5 persons & 4 persons in a convenient location to the city when I stumbled across this place. I found other accommodation for a similar budget price but this was the only one with a private bathroom & was close to two MRT stations. I was also able to book a 13 seater shuttle bus to pick us up at the airport through contacting the hostel. On entering the arrival hall at the airport the driver was waiting for us holding up my name. After a short walk to the shuttle bus we loaded our luggage & set off for the city. On arrival at Kawan we unloaded our luggage & I paid the driver S$60. Our check-in was very easy also paying for the rooms in S$. Our rooms were on the second floor & we had to use the stairs. The room was a bit cramped for 5 & the Windows were shuttered making it very dark. The room had air conditioning & a fan, so as long as you can sleep at night & take a shower morning & night, I prefer to use the money we saved on daytime activities. We could buy discounted tickets for attractions from reception plus we could buy cold drinks which was a godsend after coming back from a hot day. I do not recommend this hostel for families with young children but those with teenage children like ourselves & looking for a budget price I can certainly recommend it. There are many Indian restaurants & bars in the area. Our favourite was the Countryside cafe. We took the MRT back to the airport, I chose to get on at Rochor station, although the journey was a little longer than if we had got on at Jalan Besar station but it was easier to get to the platform with our luggage. 1 transfer at Expo station & direct to the airport.

We stayed for 8 nights and was quite happy to have an early check in as we had arrived way before check in time. The room was just big enough for six of us. Breakfast was included however it was only bread and tea, which was ok. The wifi on the other hand was really good and fast, my group and I did not have any trouble with connecting at all. They also did laundry for us for $8.00SGD (wash, dry and fold). Near Jalan Besar and Rochor Stations, walking distance to convenience stores and even Bugis Junction. They provide travel/international adaptors for a few as well a towel. This is a hostel so bring your own bathroom toiletries: towel, soap, hangers, pegs etc. The room has air con and a fan, so it is quite cool in the room and not too stuffy. The bathroom and toilet is small, the bathroom shower is pointing towards the toilet. Overall: clean and affordable, reliable and friendly staff. Thank you Andy for keeping our room neat and tidy for us. To the other for recommendations to tourist attractions etc.

We were on a budget trip and therefore stayed six nights in this hostel. The hostel is very near to the Rochor MRT Station. The owner of the hotel as well as the receptionist were very caring and nice. The breakfast is only bread and spread. There is the microwave oven so one can get packed food and use the oven. There are very good restaurants just outside the hostel. We were allowed early check in and late check out for few hours without any charges. The hotel owner also give us Sim cards for local communication. The immigration people visited early in the morning to check passports which was a bit disturbing. Probably due to the cheap rent that they visit these hotels. Overall I would recommend this place for those who are on a budget trip and they need a place to get fresh and stay in night.

The hostel is located near to little India, for me it is only the place of overnight only, I choice this hostel is only because is located near for famous hawker food only. The hostel room attached toilet is quite dirty and the breakfast is "so so " only. The only advantage is it is cheap.

If you are visiting Singapore with a couple of friends on a budget trip to hang outdoors the entire day and looking for a place just to lay down in the night this is a good place to stay. Convenient location with budget restaurants & food outlets at a hands reach away. Staff is friendly. Limited space in rooms but decent common area.
