Uptown hostel is very good condition, is clean room and comfortable, located in the middle of the city. it's not hard to find it, just the lamp beside bed wasn't turn on, maybe next can be fix it.
Pros: in the downtown area, not far from MRT and terminal station, free bread and tea/coffee, there are WiFi. Cons: the plug for charging are limited, must buy a padlock for the locker, can't really sleep well if you are tired but anyway thanks uptown for providing affordable stay for a budget backpacker.
It's so good. I will come back. Yeah!
The hostel has clean bedroom and bathroom. But you need a lock to lock your locker because it doesn't provide a lock for the locker.
Near Chinatown and Clarke Quay, nice place for backpackers
It is comfortable and clean, will go back again
I suggest you should add more toilet room. Bye bye see you next time.
WiFi up and down. Overall ok, distance to MRT or bus ok
A nice place, love place and feels like home.
All is good. Strategic. So helpful near with station. So happy stay here.

Unclean and unsafe
The staff at the hostel were all very friendly, but they were often away from reception when we needed them. Beds were comfy but sheets and pillow cases were not clean and blanket was tiny. There are only two showers and toilets for the entire hostel which was not enough, and they were not kept very clean at all. There was bread/toast served all day which was nice though. We were unable to lock the door of our dorm room either. And during our stay there was a prostitute staying in the other dorm room, going round constantly asking all the boys if they wanted a 'massage'. This made our stay very uncomfortable and we felt unsafe and the hostel staff did not seem to care what was going on. Not a good hostel.

Dirty place
Honestly this was my last-option of hostel and i was not sure about it first time. Just because my concert-mates stay here so i decided to do the same. And this place is surely the worst and dirtiest place i've ever stayed in Singapore. I arrived here at 2PM and the lady said that my bed wasn't ready i had to wait until afternoon. But then i said i'd have to go at 4PM and had to clean myself first. Just then she rushed to prepare my bed. The common room was dark, a little bit creepy. Bed and blanket was dirty, i found hair strain on my bed. Dust under the bed. No personal socket beside the bed, and i couldn't just leave my phone charged on the floor because i had an upper bed. The bathroom was the worst. There were only 2 small and dark bathrooms with broken locks. Bathroom located right inside the kitchen, what a great placement. Next day i found a panty-liner on the bathroom wall, disgusting! Pros are it's near Clarke Quay MRT and cheap.

Bad service
Very bad place to stay They charge for every basic service that u need Surely not ever come back again.The owner looks not so happy either and she also rejected a lot of customers on the days I stayed there or try charge them more money for some other stupid reasons. The restrooms are nasty and ghetto. Those doors can't lock completely and the shower head is gusty. The worst travel experience ever.

Bad service
We came to Singapore for Coldplay music concert. After long journey from Surabaya-Indonesia to Singapore, we finally arrived in hostel at 9 pm. We booked this hostel via Traveloka (local travel apps in indonesia) and showed the lady in the hostel our booking ID. But apparently her invoice came from travel agent Expedia (which was different from Traveloka) she rejected us, even though we showed her our passport and other ID cards, she told us to leave and came back the next morning instead. After long explanation and quarrels, she finally decided to have us.... such a horrible impression! But that was just the beginning. They only had 2 bathrooms and 2 toilets, which the locks were broken. The bed sheet was not okay, it was dirty and there were hair strands on my sheets.... They didn't provide blanket for each bed. The power socket was located near the exit door, which means you couldn't charge your electrical devices beside your bed. They'd charge you S$20 for a locker, S$3 for a towel, and also for a portable electrical socket (sorry, I forgot the fee). The only good thing was it was so close to Clarke Quay MRT (7 mins walking). Oh well, what do you expect from a S$16 accommodation anyway? 😂
