definitely one of the best hostels I've stayed in so far. Since it is run by a family, you really feel like coming home here, the main room is like a living room, comfortable with all the things you need. Jackie is really enthusiastic and will do her best to make you feel comfortable in Singapore, so don't be afraid...

Stayed here for one night on a stopover in Singapore and it was perfect. It's really close to the MRT if you wanna go anywhere. The rooms and the bathroom are spotlessly clean and the hostel is very cosy.

It's my first impressive backpack. The staff staff is very helpful and kindness as the traditional asian culture. The location is very comfortable to hang around downtown. The place is clean and quiet as much as my home is. Two thumbs may not enough for this place.
