Backpacker Cozy Corner GuestHouse
Ranked #144 of 240 Speciality Lodging in Singapore
Reviewed 26 October 2014

While I would never describe it as 'cozy' me and my boyfriend had a really nice stay there. We stayed in the twin room which was very small, had no window and the beds were not too big, however the sheets were clean and the air con worked fine. The bathrooms and toilets (there are two of each) are simple and nothing fancy but definitely clean and the breakfast area is quite spacious. The hostel had everything we needed, wifi, free breakfast and a very interesting crowd- mostly Asians working in Singapore and occasional travelers however everyone, including the hostel receptionist were very friendly. I would not recommend it to people who are claustrophobic and whose idea of a hostel is based on the fancy and modern versions as seen all over Europe, however for those travelers looking for a clean place to sleep, decent bathroom facilities and a simple breakfast it's probably one of the cheapest and best options in Singapore.

Room Tip: private rooms are probably a better option as the dorm doors are never shut and every time we passed...

we found this hostel via 'guide routard', the french version of lonely planet and seriously: its a joke that they put a place like this in a travel guide!

the room was small and dark, but it had a aircon nontheless...
the shared toilet and showers are okay but breakfast (coffee&tea) is served right next to it.

one hour after we checked out we went back to the room because we forgot something we wanted to double check - guess what? the sheets were not freshed up. they Just tidied up the bed without changing sheets.

the only positive thing i can give to this place is the location! its just in front of thd bugis mall and metro and bus station in the colonial quarter.

go spend your mny on another hostel!

It's good enough for those who are looking for just a good place to sleep at night with various choices and saving cost for Singapore exploration. It's location is so convenient caused it is at the heart of Singapore which is linked to the public transportation network very conveniently.

When we firstly step in the room we are so scare! the room are small, dingy and firty! Even the bedsheet also so dirty and no windows! we had a double room and with air con for one night. We even feel like want to stay at another hotel but when thinking of waste of money we already been paid, we just can have patience to stay. We just come back from outside till late night cause we scare can't sleep well at the bad condition room. The only value things is it located at the best location, 5 minutes to Bugis MRT and shopping malls. And also the shared bathroom, very small and looks old, we don't dare to take a bath when we seen it so old. And the breakfast location are just beside the bathroom!!!

This hostel isn't the best but it's the best location! Right next to the train station and shopping mall! It's one of the cheapest we found in Singapore, we had a double room and it was clean with air con, no windows so hard to wake up, people were nice they just keep themselves to themselves, the kitchen is where the toilets are so we didn't bother eating in there go to the food court in the shopping mall across the road, overall if you need a cheap place stay here! (Double room)
