Stayed there twice in August and November 2018 and both were good experiences. Was job hunting that time and the staff were very friendly and kind (Cai Lin, Alex, Angelina, Uncle who does the laundry). There was a time when I needed access to a computer and one of them went out of her way to lend me her personal laptop.
The location is very accessible to places like Chinatown, Bugis, Orchard (if you like walking relatively long distances then you can certainly reach this area hehe). I'd go play pool in a bartender friend's place at Orchard tower then easily go back home in a bus which was great. Also went shopping at the nearby Millenia Walk mall which was a 15-30 minute walk for me.
Internet access is great but sometimes I got kicked off repeatedly. Told the staff about this and hopefully next time the router will get upgraded. Might help to bring a device that supports dual-band.
All in all I'd rate my experience in this hostel as an A. The only downside I remember was the bad foot fungi that was probably unavoidable in a hostel and the noisy guests that come in from time to time.More
