Stayed here for a couple nights on our way to Vietnam. The place is clean and homey. The staff are super friendly. The location is pretty good too. It's right next to Chinatown and the subway as well as the Marina Bay Sands area.

I booked the 6 Bed Dorm without window. Everything was really clean and the living area is nice. Kitchen, big dining table, sofas and lots of books, games etc. I enjoyed my stay to the fullest. The bathroom is really clean. One of the best hostels I stayed with. Big lockers in the room. Definitely recommended!

This hostel is convenient, clean and centrally located. Could highly recommend it. I stayed a few nights in 4 share bunk room with my children & paid for all 4 beds ao we could be private. Much more affordable than other options we explored

Very good location, clean, super friendly staff. I booked the private room, and it was awesome. The only 'bad' part is I can't get a decent signal (I'm using Starhub), but there's WiFi so I'm fine :P The bed was very comfy, I fell asleep within second (and because I'm super tired walking around SG) Totally would stay here again

This hostel is very good : clean, good location, friendly staff, convivial hostel... Maybe a negative point on kitchen because there isn't hotplate so you can't cooking by yourself. Definitively it is the best hostel that I have ever had. Thank you for all.

As soon as I entered this hostel I felt welcomed. Ms Khin was very concerned after sharing with her a "private matter" I felt at home, like I was apart of a family. Prime location, clean facility, bread, banana and tea for breakfast. I would stay here again despite the walk up which they mention.

I've been planning to visit Singapore with my siblings for a year and I have to say I had a hard time planning and looking for a right place to stay knowing that accommodations there is quite expensive. Initially thought of getting a regular hotel accommodation with amenities we could enjoy but later I realized we wouldn't need that anyway,...
