I've been to Singapore so many times and this was the best hostel. It's located right in front of the Jalan Besar MRT Station. Not like most of receptionists in all over Singapore, the receptionists in this hostel is very friendly. They have unlimited 24 hours water dispenser with both cold and hot water. When you're checking in, they will handle you a paper cup, tea, coffee, and cereals. So you don't need to be worry about your breakfast even if you wake up late. They serve standard breads, jams, and toaster in the morning. The room? It's exclusive, as they have elevator, rather than most of other hostels with high stairs. The toilet is clean, the air conditioners, bed and sheets are comfortable. It's excellent! But put some notes that they only have storage without padlock. So you need to have your own padlock, or you have to rent for $2.

This accommodation is perfect for backpackers who want to stay and take a break at a cheap price. incidentally when I came here I was with my family, so I slept with my family and other people. we can take care of each other. but I do not give recommendations for backpacker women who go alone, because 1 room is used also with other people.

My stay is okay except for the receptionist upon our check in. He insult us as if I don't understand him. He is very rude, hope the manager or the owner of the hotel would replace him. But I like the room though it was mixed room, the breakfast is great, the dining area is very okay, you can stay there as much as you wish. The wifi is very much okay. Lastly, near the mrt station the rochor station exit b and the jalan basar station exit b.

I just look into review and I believe this hostel too much, when I arrived at the hostel, this place look so dirty and everything is messy. I know it just the hostel, but I've stayed at hostel with much better condition. Also the staff is not friendly at all. I don't know why everyone is happy with this hostel, the shower is so dirty and smelly, I even found cat feces in front of male shower..the only reason to stay here is near from MRT. But next time I don't want to stay here again.
