The hostel was quite run down 1 toilet and shower for one floor which I reckon you’d be sharing between 16-24 people. The toilet and shower were very moldy. The place it self smelt quite bad and the location was far from centre. However the bed itself was clean with no bugs in sight and it was a good pricing for Singapore.

The only positive about this hostel is that staff are friendly and helpful. The hostel itself needs to be completely renovated. The 4 person room in which I stayed was completely covered in mold, you could smell it strongly as soon as you walked in the room and throughout downstairs, now as a result am ill with a throaty cough. On the ground floor there are 2 toilets/showers to accommodate 16+ people and on the 1st floor only 1 toliet to accommodate 25+ people! Absoulte joke. I know Singapore is expensive but you can find somewhere alot better than The gap year(reddoorz@ lavender street) for a similar price.

- ONE TOILET for 2O beds. - ONE SHOWER for 2O beds. - 12 Blocks from METRO. How can any ethical landlord have 2O ppl use 1 toilet? Boys & Girls. The reviews must be bogus. - ONE TOILET for 2O beds. - ONE SHOWER for 2O beds. - 12 Blocks from METRO. Those are the facts. See the photos. You decide.
