I could not sleep at night so many bed bugs and when you check the bed in the morning remove bed sheet you can see everything
It's easy to find food courts around this hostel.
I stayed one night for second time and I had the same experiences. The hostel is not bad. Clean, good staffs, and easy to get anywhere as its located next to MRT station. Bad thing is I found bedbugs on blanket and it made me could not sleep well.
The washroom is not that good! Some bed bugs. But I enjoyed Mr. David's henna tattoos! And he's nice also.
The only thing I noticed is the towels. I hope they make it for free. They didn't mention in their info that towels have a charge.
It was great but the room is kind of not smells good and the WiFi is slow beside that it is closed to the MRT station and many restaurant
Okay hope to comeback again to this hostel
bad service, take 1 day to change my bed cover
allowed to smoke in the room. only 2 bathrooms for all visitors!
the only good thing I can get from this hostel is the location, so close from mrt station. it's really not good for girls or woman travellers, I had bad experience there, I was staying there with 2 my girlfriends, and we had boys room mates, and they were snoring really hard, we really couldn't sleep well. it will be good choice if you stay there 1 room for all your group so that will be good choice because the price is so good. and yeah, the toilet was so dirty, we even chose to not take a shower before our flight.

Bedbugs- 'nuff said.
Pros: nice staff, 2 mins from MRT station. Cons: bedbugs, rundown place. Overall cheap place to stay in but for the inconvenience and discomfort of the bedbugs it is so not worth it, you are better off spending the night elsewhere. Also did not help that when I highlighted the bed bugs issue to the manager after my stay, I was blamed for not highlighting the matter when I was staying there- when the lights in the room that I slept in were already off, so it was dark and I did not notice anything amiss.

Smoking weed is more important than taking care of the customers.
We truly regret being there. We usually stay in cheap places and we are ok with some level of dirt but our stay there was awful. The room behind ours was being renovated and there was a strong smell of paint. Since my girlfriend is allergic to that we asked the staff to do something and all he said was that he couldn't help us, got his weed and went away. Later on we went around the hostel and found a couch in the common area.He didn't even bother offering it - he didn't mention that there is the second floor with a living room, PC and hot water (showers at our floor had no hot water and even toilet paper). Apparently getting high is more important than trying to help customers. Lastly, the bedsheets were full of bedworms. Our heads and faces were itchy all the day long

Just so so
It was early of 2014. This hostel is easy to find, its just in the corner of town. Chinese corner I guess, old building, not that clean but at least no smell of rotten meat. hahaha.. Narhh. No smell at all. I booked online for 15 SGD/night, but when I arrived the receptionist (chinese face with British speaking accent) said she aint got my reservation. She said they still have bed for us (3 adult+1kid) but the rate 17SGD/night, what can we do? of course we accept it. It was almost 8pm. She kinda rude but actually shes funny, way too fun. Better stay cool and avoid convey unless youve got no boom inside your head. They provide 2 share bathrooms, tap water, a laundry room and a dining room. The beds was clean enough but the building obviously not, well but thats ok as long as you're not touch it. You can leave your luggage in your while you're out to see the city. It was ok, I lost nothing, but dont forget to lock it, just in case. he he he. I like this hostel because: - Its near to subway station - Hungry? just walk couple minutes and food everywhere. - Kinda creepy district, but I never found gangs hanging around there

Nothing to say, just stay away from this place
We try to contact them for cancel our book for 3 days but nobody answered and then when we arrive there we had waited 3 hours from 9am to 11 am for the receptionist . than at 11,40 we wrote a message to them and we left that orrible place and finally they charge us the first night I used to sleep in cheap backpackers or guesthouse place but this was too much even for one dollar..

Rude! Horrible! No manner woman manager on the reception
I just arrived in singapore and looking for a place to stay i noticed here in trip advisor that this hotel offer a cheap price so i decided to visit the place. When i reached the place there is no one on the reception but only a sleepy china woman sitting on sofa. The stairs is so dirty and the place is so messy.. I asked the china woman where is the reception officer but since she cant understand english i decided to look around if there is anybody there but no one. After few minutes there was a guy who came out from the other door and i asked him if where is the reception he said coming out soon so I've waited. After 10 minutes she still not coming out i decided to went up and accidentally saw the WOW hostel i asked the guy inside wow hostel if possible to checked the rooms and facilities and the guy allowed me but informed me they are different form this urban hosttel.. I came down since my intention to come there is to visit the urban hostel... After waited for another 10 minutes i decided to knock the door and a woman open it I've greeted her "hello is there any receptionist on the counter" ? but i was so surprised she scolded me!! And asked me to stop talking she said " STOP! if you are looking for someone don't walk around im looking at you on the camera! Then i was shocked... I told her i went upstairs coz i checked the other hostel to save my time since you are not around yet.. She answered me "dont walk around i am looking at you on the camera you should only sit on the sofa ! Then no wonder the china lady look so sleepy on the sofa waited for her maybe.... i dunno how many hours already! But then i said never mind! I dont want to rent a room anymore then she said use your brain.. Then i said use your brain too.... You already know that you have a customer you can see on the camera you still never go out you only looking on the camera!! Stupid old dog woman manager here. Dont come on this hostel!!
