It's bare bones. There are lockers, but my stuff didn't fit, so I left it under the bed. I wasn't ever concerned about theft. Breakfast is available, and it's bare bones, too. Just bread and butter, peanut butter, nutella, and a few jams. There are three communal showers and three communal toilets. I never had to wait too long to...

Great hostel! The location is perfect, close to everything. Friendly staff. No problems with the plumbing, hot water&shower&toilet everything is fine. Take extra 20sing $ (such as deposit), but then return with eviction. Call a taxi, tell you where to go and etc. City maps and tours also have discounts. Curtains on the beds, and the light and socket too....

the location is perfect so you can easily to the sights of singapore. The stuff is super friendly, you have free breakfast that encludes toast nutella peanut butter and jam. The beds are ok, you have lockers. There weren't many people in the hostel because it's a very small one, but I met lovely people there!

The only thing it lacks is it doesn't really have a huge social space and lacks the hostel atmosphere, but I really enjoyed staying here. The place is clean, and the staff are very helpful and lovely! The rooms are good to. BUT it is up...

Location is the best, rooms are clean, staffs are really friendly and helpful. The best thing abt this hostel is the dinning room where you can find a bookshelf, a guitar and an ukulele, which makes me feel like home whenever I'm there :) This was my 2nd stay and surely I will come back.

Went here with 3 friends in November 2016. Staff is very friendly, hostel is clean and small. Good toilets and showers (with shampoo and soap). No towels provider, so do not forget to bring your own. Breakfast is really simple, just white toast. The location is very good, you can walk towards the water for a great view. MRT stations...

Right from the entrance, you are warmly greeted. The place is so well-maintained and so clean, partly because every guest plays their part not to wear shoes into the hostel. You only need to pay for what you use, such as towels and laundry. Breakfast is included, for such a budget price. Wifi is also included free. I highly recommend...
