The bathroom needs to be cleaned. The shower doors can’t be locked.

The best way to live for backpackers!

Bath room was bad! There are many little tiny bugs fly around. Room so smelly. Staff mocking me when because I don't have Singapore dollar. The only good things in this hostel was the AC.
- Backpacking
This place is at strategic's location, near from bus station and not so far from the MRT station
- Backpacking
Not bad for backpacker, but I don't like operational time in front office or receptionist in here
- Family vacation
If you're alone for backpacker this is suitable but if you're going with family this is bad option.

This hostel is bad! Location is not bad. However, room is smelly, bedsheet doesn't look being washed, unclean bathroom with flies flying around. No idea when they cleaned it up the last time. There might be bedbugs as well since my body got itchy after a couple of days staying.
My stay at this hostel was pleasant.
Great place for take a rest, the bathroom and bedroom so clean.

Good room / Cheap stay.
First, the check-in has been pretty quick & easy. The girl was nice. They will ask you a 20$ deposit for the key/card. (As nearly everywhere ...). I stayed 2 nights in a 12 Bed dorm. The room was nice. Pretty clean. I loved the fact that there was a wall every 2 bunk beds. This way i was feeling more in a 4 bed dorm than a 12 bed dorm. The air con was working perfectly. (Only working at night) The bed was OK. All beds got their own light & plug. You also got your own locker under the bed. The bathroom were not the cleanest that i've seen but it was OK. The only bad thing in there are the doors who are nearly all broken ... This is annoying. The common area is not very big, but there is everything you need. TV, Books, Plugs, Tables & chairs. The breakfast was Basic. Some toasts + Coffee/tea. You can't really ask more than that when you're staying in this kind of hostels ... The wifi has not been working everytime. Lot of restaurants & shops around. Metro was 10 min walk away. Litlle india 5 mins walk. Didn't tried, but i've seen a bus stop 2 mins away of the main door. For those who loves football, if you're staying at the right moment, the jalan besar Stadium is literally across the road. So, it's not the best place on earth. But worth a stay if you're just looking for a place to spend the night & move around during the day. That's cheap, and there is everything you could need...

Horrible business model
As I was writing this review I couldn't sleep as the aircon was too hot, the cars' noise from Jalan Besar and the chatters from the food court right below got into the room unfiltered (they didn't make an effort to soundproof the window), and the light from the street light glaring into my eyes (couldn't close the curtain). When I first came in the bed sheet and pillow case were so smelly that I had to wash them myself at a laundry some hundred meters from here so I can sleep at night, but then came the problems above. While the waters are perfectly flowing the toilets and shower rooms aren't as clean as you would expect from the hospitality industry, not to mention that the doors had to be readjusted at times and the showerhead was literally dangling as the holder wasn't well bolted. Location-wise it was next to a bus station and as mentioned earlier is situated right above a food court and opposite a 24-7 supermarket so supplies and late night hunger shouldn't be much of an issue. The staff was also pretty courteous and the security features were perfectly working. The internet is arguably reliable as well. While obviously this hostel isn't all bad, my experiences tilt more to the bad one rather than good, so 2-star rating here.

Don' t go there!
This hostel is very bad! The room were very smelly! The bathroom were broken and dirty! The common area is okey. Breakfast is embarassing! You can't call it breakfast, it's just bread and what it was supposed to be jam. The staff was lazy and unhappy. The common area closed around 10pm and you can't go there till 7:30am but the staff is always late so if you need to leave very early in the morning you must tell them in advance. The worst thing is that this is a NOT cheap hostel! We hadn't no choice but if you can...don' t go there!

You get what you pay for
Stayed at 3 different hostels in Singapore and this is by far the cheapest but also the dirtiest. But honestly, the beds are comfy, the showers clean and much bigger than at the other places so I ended up staying here for the rest of my trip. Great and really cheap delicious food around. Here you can experience the cheap side of Singapore. Just make sure to come before the pest-control shuts this place down : ) Btw. Breakfast is included everything else costs extra: Printing 0,50$ a page Luggage storage 2$ PC 4$/h (first 30min free)

My second time
They have friendly employee. They serve a breakfast. I didn't eat it because we have to sightseeing since dawn. I forgot to bring my T for charging and they provide the T and paid 1 dollar. The room is comfortable. I don't think it is near MRT because we had to walk around 15 minutes.
