The hotel is located in the center of the city & just 5 minutes walk to S'pore's night spot area(Clarke Quay), MRT station & shopping malls. The staff was very friendly & helpful. The rooms are comfortable, the beds are nice &...

Me and my friends enjoyed our 3-bedroom room. Everything was clean, convinient. The hotel is located almost in the center, close to subway and shopping mall, stuff is very friendly and supportive. Guys on the reception listen quiet cool Indian music all the time :) There is a kitchen on every store so you can enjoy breakfast in calm atmosphere.

Only positive thing about this hostel is location - shopping centre just 2 mintuies away, Clarke Quay and chinatown - very close. MRT station close. But everything else is very bad. I've never been in such ugly hostel. Really. (I've seen some very beautiful and clean hostels and never had any problems) We had 2-bed room (bunk-bed) and it was...

The hostel is decently clean and averaged price for the bed but as for all the extras there are charges for everything; washer and dryer separately plus detergent which they occupied the whole time so we couldn't do ours when I asked numerous times, and...

24 singapore dollars per night for 10/12 bed dorm room. Pretty standard price for the area. Good location- in Clarke Quay close to the train network.

Good things first: the location is excellent and the hostel is quite clean, and it's ok if you only need a place to sleep for a night or two. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend. Twin private room appeared to be a tiny closet with a bunk bed (two persons standing + two backpacks was enough to fill the space completely). The...
