Clean Hostel, reasonable price, enthusiastic and attentive staff. Hostel is in the center, near MRT station, bus station, near food court and Chinese market. Suitable for people traveling alone or traveling on their own. I will come back here if I return to Singapore.

Hi, Thank you so much for your detailed review. We are glad that you had a pleasant stay us. We have some programs for our guests so for those who is solo traveler or traveling on their own, can join the free activities; like walking tours, local food trails and even an in-house guests’ community group, where the beary bears (our guests) meet and go out for drinks/do other activities. Of course, we don't "force" anything upon our guests, and everyone can participate as much as they want. We look forward to welcoming you back and have you be part of our bear gang :)

Just fine. Windows didn't stay closed (bad latch) so AC could only do so much, bathrooms weren't cleaned, no towels offered. Location ok, right across from metro stop, food options nearby. Not a great value for the money.

Hi Kathleen, Thank you for your comments. We are truly sorry you did not enjoy your short stay with us. We have checked the windows latch in our dorms to ensure they can be closed properly. We work really hard to make sure that all our guests feel welcomed and also have a clean and comfortable environment to rest. We will pass on your feedback to our housekeeping team, so that we can improve further - we do thorough housekeeping every day, and also have deep cleaning sessions scheduled, so that the hostel is well maintained and clean. We hope it assures you that we take immediate action upon receiving feedback and we welcome our guests to let us know how we can improve your stay. Most of our guests prefer to use their own towels, hence we provide them at a small fee to other guests who don't. We hope we will have the chance to host you again soon!

Hi inesquilez, Thank you for taking the time to review our property, we really appreciate it! We are pleased that you had a pleasant stay with us and enjoy one of our free activities.

A great hostel in a perfect location. Right in Chinatown with lots of places to eat & drink. 1/2hr walking distance from the marina or right across the road from the metro station. Definitely the best way of getting around the city. It's very cheap & so easy to use. Forget taxi & busses. You can get to this hostel from the airport in 35/40 mins & costs around $2.50! Staff are super friendly, they let me check in early to shower & change & very helpful with information on Singapore. I had a private room as I needed 1 proper night sleep! which had a fan AND air con, it's comfortable and clean, bathrooms have good showers & is clean. Definitely recommend

I recommend this hostel not just it's affordable but because it's just across the Chinatown MRT Station. You don't have to worry about the location since it's very central. When you go out from the hostel just walk around and food hop to every food stall, hawker centers at Chinatown Complex that you can find. Also the place is so neat and quiet. :-)
