Very clean hostel with spacious private rooms, fast WiFi connection (in the room itself; not just common area) and close to the MRT station. The common area is huge as well and has a great atmosphere but unfortunately we were the only guests when we stayed there and therefore had no chance to meet other people. Another disadvantage is the... More

This is a nice clean hostel tucked away in Kovan, Singapore. It is close to the MRT and several local shops and restaurants. The two cats Romeo and Pepper are great and will spend most of the day in bed with you if you feel like it!! The downfalls to the hostel are lack of windows in the rooms and... More

This hostel was advertised as 'boutique style', but this was far from the truth. We booked a double room which was basically just a small double mattress on the floor. The room had no window and it was so small that we had to put our luggage on the end of the bed. The building itself is basically an extension... More

It was a rush preparation that left me very few choices besides One Florence Close. And there are pros and cons of this little hut in Kovan, far away from Central Singapore, and here they are: PROS - Friendly staff - Walking distance to MRT Station, surrounded by local restaurants that are good and economic choices. There is a traditional... More

This places is basically a garage like extension to a house. The bathrooms were very dirty the whole time that I stayed and the whole place had a bad smell to it. The location is quite far from central Singapore compared to other places to stay. The internet did not work for the entire time I spent at the hostel.... More

The hostel was quite far out from the central area but was near the MRT (Kovan stop). Place was clean but toilet and shower doors did not work so had to get partner to stand guard outside. We had a double room which was just a mattress on the floor and about 2 ft at the side and bottom so... More

We stayed at One Florence Close for one month whilst we were looking for a long term rental in Singapore. It was perfect for what we wanted. It is very clean, with a lovely young lady there every day continually cleaning and ensuring everything is in order. She cleans the bedrooms each day, and makes the beds for you every... More

If you can handle the truly tiny rooms, this is a great place! We stayed in a double which is indeed very very small, but not an issue for us given the nice furnishing, cosy bed, lots of hangars to place your clothing and tables to put your stuff on and TV! Very clean. The facilities are good, clean (but... More

I chose this place simply becos of the price, the convenience and away from the tourist. I am attending a class in Singapore and not willing to spend a fortune on hotel rooms. This place is nice, the room is small but clean, the place is a bit old, but very convenient if you travel to the central, the staff... More
