Worst Hostel I Stayed
No matter how bad a hostel can be, i never have rated a hostel this low. Out of 25 countries I been backpacked, this is by far the worst. I know I am signing up for a really cheap hostel in the middle of one of the most expensive city on earth but I didnt expect to get this raw deal. 1) The location is excellent. Just less than 5 mins walk to Kallang MRT station and numerous buses in and out of the area. 2) There are 24 hours restaurants just 2 mins walk away from this hostel. 3) The receptionists are really kind. 4) wifi works really well. BUT ... 1) There will be 4 to 5 men all day long just sitting in front of the hostel (mostly migrant workers). they are looking at us all the times when we go out and come in the hostel. honestly, i feel unsecured. do something about it. 2) the street leading to the hostel, the shops and restaurants look tired and quiet all night. 3) the hostel is a bit rundown with paint and colours dilapidated. it looks so tired. 4) the room is small and no safety at all (at least the room i stayed has no safety box). 5) the plugs are far away from beds, and only has 2 in the rooms. 6) the cleanliness is OMG, WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME THEY CLEAN THIS? 7) the bathroom were mouldy, smelly, wet all the time and super black stains latched in the wall. dude, seriously? 8) i felt like living in a slump in one of the nicest city on earth.

unsatisfied
I tried to stay at this place in July 2014. Located in the Kallang area & it only takes 5 minutes walk to the station (bus/MRT). The location is very good. But when we arrived at his place, such like UHHH.. The room smells not good. The yellow mattress. The fug air. The super small toilet. The price for value like that is not make sense. I will not go to that place again.

Really bad experience
we stayed in the family room, for the room : the air conditioner did not work properly, we could not turn the tv on because it was broken, the room is not spacious. the bathroom was nasty and really narrow , the picture in the booking.com is different compare than the real condition. the positive thing just the location of the hostel

Worst hotel I've ever been in
Please do not, under any circumstances, stay at this hotel! My partner and I have been travelling all across Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and now Singapore for the last 5 months and this is by far the worst place we have stayed. The reception staff were reasonably friendly and the area is quite vibrant, but as far as 'Ideal' backpackers goes, that is where it ends. Here are a few reasons why you should avoid the hotel: 1) Our 'family' room was a windowless box with two sets of old bunkbeds shoved against the walls, and no room for anything else, except a TV on which only one channel worked. 2) The men's bathroom was not a separate room, but open plan onto the corridor. This meant that the whole place stank of toilets. On the door to the stairwell at the end of the corridor, a sign read "Please keep closed, for the smell". Nice. 3) The toilets themselves were tiny, dirty cubicles with old metal folding shutter doors, and the locks were comprised of elastic bands stretched over plastic blocks. 4) There were only three toilets in the men's, and the middle one had no seat. It was on the floor instead. 5) There was only one toilet roll dispenser for all three toilets, on the wall in the corridor. It was almost always empty. 6) There were no separate shower cubicles, just shower hoses stuck on the walls in the toilet cubicles. There were no hooks to keep your clothes and towel from getting drenched. 7) It was full of old Chinese men, who walked around the corridors half naked, loudly coughing up phlegm all day and all night. 8) The walls between the rooms were so thin, I could hear our neighbour's conversations as clearly as if they were lying in bed next to me. Anytime somebody opened or closed the door in the next room, or got in or out of their bed, my bunkbed literally shook from side to side, banging against the wall. 9) Although the women's had separate shower cubicles, they were mostly flooded, and there were only two toilets. 10) Although you could lock your room, security was negligible at best. The outer door, straight on to the street, was open at all times. I am surprised that booking.com continues to list a hotel as bad as this one. At $65 per night it can't even be described as cheap and nasty - it's just nasty. We made it our business to spend as little time as possible there whilst we were staying, returning only to sleep, as it was a particularly unpleasant place to be. Strongly recommend you don't end up in the same situation!

Don't go there. Stay clear of this Hostel!
We spent last night there, and it has been the worst stay of my night! Don't go there! Insects everywhere. Damaged ceilings. 1x1 square meter common toilets that where showers as well. I had an urgent need to shower, but I didn't shower because of gross the thing was. And the beds. They were all dirty. I'm pretty sure they don't clean the blankets we got. We were 6 people packed in a tiny room with sketchy bunk beds. Conclusion: I don't recommend it. I advice you stay clear of it.
