i stayed there for 2 nights. It was the worst place i ever stay; shared toilet was wet, staff did wrong booking for me ( i picked the 6 female/ room n they gave me 10 female/room), not enough table to enjoy breakfast, corridor so messy n stuffy, located far away from mrt station and lastly, the road n alley nearby hostel was dark n looks creepy at night. too bad i couldn't find any vacant room at hotel nearby on the next day due to weekend.

never ever get the wrong place to stay for your trip. a good sleep is essential to enjoy your trip the next day. pay more is suggested rather than stay here!!

This is a very good place to stay in Singapore when you're traveling on a tight budget. My friends and I had a good time staying on this hostel. The bathrooms were clean, the rooms are not that spacious but very comfortable to sleep in. So far, we had a great time staying here and would probably be coming back soon. The staff are helpful as well.

+:
Great location in the middle of Little India, close to the MRT station and the hawker centre for excellent food.
Friendly reception staff
Free Breakfast (toast, jam, peanut butter, fruit, tea/coffee)
basic kitchen facilities
lounge with dvd player

-:
Dorms are very cramped
No space whatsover to put your bags
half of the lockers provided are broken (plus you need to bring your own padlock)
BATHROOMS.... are disgusting! funnily enough, the toilets were cleaner than the showers, but this does not surprise me:

This is how the cleaner lady works: (we stayed here for 6 nights so I bumped into her more than just once). Between 8 and 9am, when everyone is trying to have a shower and get ready, she 'cleans' the bathrooms. I got kicked out of the bathroom while I was wanting to brush my teeth so she can 'clean'. She turns the water on and hoses the floor down. THAT"s IT. There's no detergent, no scrubbing. And she only ever cleans the floor outside the shower cubicles because of course in the morning all the showers are taken, so they never get cleaned. On 3 out of 6 mornings I had to wade through ankle deep water in the shower cubicles because the cleaner never cleaned the drainage. And (sorry to say that) with mainly Asian guests there was alywas a tennis ball size lump of hair blocking the drainage.... Gross.

On 5 out of 6 days there, the WIFI didn't work. The staff knew, as everyone told them multiple times a day but nothing ever happened. Very annoying.

We only stayed there because everything else was full and if I went to Singapore again I'd probably stay at Checker's.

As expected, the room was set up in a "dormitory" style, which has double bunk and cushioned beds. Linens were supplied but not everyday so guests should not spoil them readily. But the room was clean. The toilet was common, not ensuite but surprisingly, always clean and supplied with ample tissues and hand soap. Bath soap, shampoo and towel were not supplied so you have to bring your own although you could rent the towel for SGD2. There was free wi-fi internet and 4 desktops with wi-fi at the lobby which were free of charge. Breakfast was also free consisting of bread, cereals, jams, peanut butter and fruits.
This hostel is ideal for backpackers and family on a tight budget, but not for family with small kids since the toilet was not ensuite.

The hostel sits in the heart of Little India. Have no illusions this is no 5 star hotel but for the price is fantastic. The staff are always helpful and the rooms (double with my son) are fine with aircon. The dormitories are quite tight and lockers are not huge. This is a busy place and venue so don't expect quiet noise free nights. The bathroom is regularly cleaned and the water pressure is verging on painful. Breakfast is minimal and of course you are responsible for washing up. Toast jam peanut butter, weak coffee and fruit are what I usually eat so I was happy. If you want waiter service or fine food you will hate the place. If you like mucking in and young people it's really great. Internet access is fine and free. Students and back packers come here from the 4 corners of the world. The temperature outside is high and yes it would be fair to say that there is the occasional damp smell. What makes this place great is the rooms are secure the atmosphere is friendly and you are central to the colour and life of Little India. Take the time to walk the streets and after an initial apprehension amid the bustle you will relax and enjoy its laid back chaotic ways. Cheap food abounds nearby and I have had no gastric problems afterwards. If your budget is tiny you will survive easily. If your budget is huge.... go somewhere else! I loved being 20 again for a few days. I would come back.
