“Very Suprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2016

We were very aprehensive about sharing a room and sleeping in a pod, But this has persuaded me completly! The night sleep was perfect and the pods were very comfertable. The rooms well air-conditioned and other people sharing the room were very respectful. You also had a unit under the pod to place all personal belongings safely and could only be openned with your own card. The staff were also very friendly and helpful. MAIN POSITIVE the location is perfect literally 2min walk from the underground and from there you could go anywhere. Would stay again and advise anyone travliing or looking for a short stay to stay here!! Thanks

Room Tip: All rooms/Pods nice!

Having never stayed in a shared hostel room before, I was apprehensive about staying in a double pod with my partner. Out of the 4 nights, only had 1 bad nights sleep and that was due to another couple coming in very late and constantly opening and closing the dorm door for a good hour. The air-con worked amazing, breakfast was standard, shower rooms/toilets were always clean and never had to wait. Didn't really engage much with the staff. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay here again.

Stayed February 2016

My partner and I stayed in one of the double bed pods over the Chinese New Year. Located about 5mins walk from the Chinatown MRT, as well as close to the New Bridge St main road for lots of buses, so really easy and convenient to get around. A lot of sights within walking distance too (Sri Mariamman Temple, Buddha Tooth Relic Temple). Being in the heart of Chinatown it was good to soak up the atmosphere, but was also quiet enough and comfortable for a decent night's sleep.

The shared bathrooms were always spotlessly clean with plenty of showers available. Breakfast was basic - drinks, cereal, toast. The room had good a/c, large locker space underneath the bunks, individual lighting and a curtain for privacy. Only downside is that it wasn't a social hostel, and the staff didn't really bother to interact. Would return as it is great value for money compared to the hotels of Singapore.

The hostel's location is convenient and near the MRT station. A lot of restaurants around the area and it's tourist attraction point. The staff service is good even I was late to check-in but she knew me through checked the system. Good to stay.

Quite the right fit for solo travelers.
Its a great place to be.
Cleanliness is maintained to a decent standard.
If you're staying for more than 3 days, you'll get bored of the breakfast.
But about 20 steps down, very adjacent to the hostel are many restaurants.
