Not bad for backpackers...good.
The location near the farer park MRT station, easy to find. The staffs are really nice. the facilities is not a joke. The lobby, room, and bathroom will never make you disappointed. Would like to go back to stay here if I'm going to Singapore again. Keep it up
For a backpacker, this hotel is ok but it has a not so good smell inside the room and it bothers the travellers.
I was underestimate for the 1st time I book this because the price is so cheap but all of details are great. I will recommend this place to my friend.
Good, very recommended for traveler.
Certainly is a smelly hostel. Beds full of bed bugs. Many hostel rules like staying in a camp. Air con is off from 7am-7pm. That is fine but when they on the air-con at night, they make it extreme cold and we unable to adjust the temperature and worse still the air con is just in front of the bed. 2 reception with lousy attitude.. I guess it's some other guests complain then they put some scented candle along the staircase.
The staffs were nice and really kind! Room was great, breakfast ok, WiFi so good! Near MRT Farrer Park and Mustafa Center, location is the best!
A cozy place. their staff so friendly, warm-hearted. About 4-5 minutes to Fareer Park MRT Station, near from mustafa center and city square
Really comfortable. To measure its backpacker place is okay. Easy to find. Near mrt. May be stopping here again if we go to singapore again

clean and affordable accommodation
the amenities were clean. the staff were polite and very accommodating. we stayed there for 2 nights and it was the cheapest accommodation we had found in singapore so far. the rooms are clean. if you are a traveller who seems to care about a place where you can stay at an affordable price and if you are not picky this lodge is for you. this suits a cowboy like me. warning though, there were only curtains to separate you from other backpackers and if you are lucky to find a bed in the corner that would be better. as for me i didn't mind it as long as there are safe lockers for my things i'm perfectly fine with it.

Friendly and hospitable staff!
We were 19 pax (mostly students) when we stayed here and everything was in harmony. Though we can't really control how other guests move around the hostel, we definitely felt that we were home. Breakfast selection is limited but more than enough. They let us take away some toasties. Comfort rooms need a bit of renovation and ionizers (odor eliminator) should be installed in the dormitory esp near shoe racks to ensure that odor is neutralized. Sharon, Marie, Ailyn, Rish, our housekeeper (forgot her name), and esp July were amazing. Kudos to your team. PS. If you are a Filipino backpacker, this hostel is for you! It is near Farrer Park MRT station, Bugis, and CitySquare (which has Food Park) and Moustaffah Money Exhange 24 hrs. About the picture: it was a back to back birthday bash for the 3 staff of New Society. We sang for them and in return they had a game for us! We really enjoyed the night!

ok, if you are in a budget
i stayed for 4 nights in august in a mixed dorm. they have big lookers and ac in the rooms. To get to my dorm I needed to cross a big dorm and a toilet, what wasn't nice. Found the toilets quite smelly but the room clean. they serve a very basic breakfast. Its located in little india, not very central. Recommend only if you are in a tight budget

Average hostel but great location
Stayed for 2 nights in the female dorm. To get to the female dorm, we have to go thru a huge dorm and the bathroom. Luckily we get the room to ourselves, there are 5 of us in the 6 bedded female dorm. Since the location of this dorm is funny where you have to go thru the bathroom first, other people tend to open our door by mistaken it for one of the bathroom doors. We had to lock it all the times when we're inside. There are only 2 showers and 2 toilets and there are a lot of beds in the huge dorm which are also sharing the bathroom. It gets too crowded during peak times in the morning. It would have been better if the bathroom is separated for male and female instead. Since too many people using, it is a bit dirty. They provided bread, jam, peanut butter and coffee for the breakfast. No food are allowed in the dorms so you have to go down to the kitchen area if you want to eat your own food. The staffs are nice, very accommodating. We rent towels for $2 for our 2 nights duration and borrowed iron and hair dryer from the reception. The location of this hostel is great. Near to Farrer Park MRT, City Square Mall, Mustafa Centre (24 hours) and a lot of eateries.
