Location is far away from where ", so a bit troublesome from mrt to hostel - hostel to mrt .. let alone come & go home carrying suitcase, have to ride taxi (expensive boooo) :( But it's okay, cozy place rich own home & bread can be eaten as much.

Good budget option, but poor service
A decent hostel for the price. The staff was not there when we arrived (the arrival time was communicated) so we waited a couple of hours to be let in. It seemed as though there was never any staff around. The hostel is small, but clean and is located in a great part of the city. There aren't nearly enough bathrooms for the number of beds. There is delicious and cheap vegetarian restaurant just by the main entrance which I would highly recommend checking out.

We thought was better!
We decided to book 2 nights in this hostel for 2 reasons: first for the price, second for the reviews. The hostel is okey, we expected something bigger, the pictures are not realistic. The common area is small, the best part is the nutella/ jam/peanut butter with bread avaible all day. There are only 2 bathroom with toilet, so in the morning probably you have to wait, but they are clean. The room are very small, the twin beds are very near. We never seen the owner, but there were a volonteer guy there, which was perfect for us, because otherwise we couldn t come in (the reception time is very short!). Last thing the position, it is very far from the center, like 20minuts by walk from china town, but it s near to the bus station.

Friendly place and free 24 hour toast!
Nice place to stay with very friendly staff and clean bathrooms. The unlimited toast and nutella is the best thing! You don't get hungry if you stay here! The negatives are the location (15mins walk to nearest MRT) and that there are only 2 wetrooms between everyone. This led to queuing when you need the loo as there's often someone in the shower.

Simple hostel.
This hostel is an ideal base for looking around. Close to MRT. Free toast and peanut butter/Nutella; wifi and washing facilities to use. I didn't make any friends here - but I think that's maybe down to luck , and who else happens to be around at the time.

Free toast & nutella, wet bathrooms
The beds are comfy, although the aircon was on for 3 days and it didn't get any colder. Free toast, peanut butter, and nutella is great. There's free water, but only a small jug that runs out quickly. Lots of information about the city on the walls. Washing machine for $6. Wi-Fi is very strong. It's very busy in the morning so there's nowhere to sit or move around. 30 mins walk to china town and 1 hr to the bay. There's a strange lady that seems to work here and live here, but is never behind the desk. She seems to be always watching and judging.
