Positives first: Location was fine (within walking distance from most major sites) and downstairs was fine. Negatives: staff were rude and abrupt when we were checking in- we had to wait 10 minutes whilst he finished paperwork , and then he showed us round and explained loads of rules that seemed to focus particularly about not wearing shoes in the rooms ( a several hundred dollar fine was threatened),not allowed to make the sheets dirty at all (threats of more fines, but are they not washed and changed anyway?!) And how to wear the communal shower flip flops (um.... not cool with that my friend!) The beds were literally a bed in a capsule, with no shelf inside to put phones etc. The blind at the end of the bed is see through when you have the light on, and there is CCTV in…
I have stayed in many hostels in my life and usually have a very good sleep, but this stay was something... I could not sleep at all. It is either the room is for waaay too many people and some were not sleeping all night, because it is not really a capsule and you can hear all the noises / see light, or because the safety boxes are open/closed with a loud sound, but the stay was terrible. I had to leave to another place without staying all the days I paid for. Unless you plan to be drunk or on sleeping pills, do not recommend staying there
There are cameras inside the bedrooms, do NOT stay here. Employees did not mention this to me or to my friends, who were checked in on a different day. It is also not written down anywhere. When I noticed the cameras, the staff acted like it was no big deal and told me to “change in the bathroom” if it bothered me. When they realized how upset I was, they changed their story and said that they had told me about the cameras, which was a lie. I felt incredibly violated and taken advantage of, and anyone who stays here will have their privacy invaded.
Highly recommend if you’re looking for a clean and comfortable place to stay in Singapore on a budget. Each bed has its own curtain and electronically locking so allows for relative privacy and security. Location is very central for restaurants, nightlife and exploring the city. Only downside is that it did get a bit loud at night since the street the hostel is on is a street full of bars, many of which are open late. That being said, for the price, I thought Quarters was fantastic.
Quarters is a very nice , chic hostel! I love the fact that people respect other people’s privacy and it’s not loud! The entry to the hostel also acts a lounging / meeting area for people. They also have a few tables outside to chill! They provide breakfast which is quite basic- eggs , milk, cornflakes and bread! Tea and coffee is unlimited and available all the time which is quite good!The location of the hostel is great! Walking distance to quite a few places! The hostel also provides tickets at a discounted price to a lot of touristic places!The rooms are neat and clean but the bathrooms could have been cleaner!They are quite small and the water is not hot enough!Overall a nice experience and I would recommend this hostel to people looking for a quieter and private hostel!
