“Best Place To Stay At”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

I went to SG from February 11 to 14, 2012 on my first solo trip overseas and I chose this place to be my temporary home as it was recommended by a friend. Home away from home indeed. I stayed at their 8-bed female dorm and had to share with others but it was no problem at all. The whole place was kept clean, the showers and the common room too. I loved how each bed had its own outlet and there was free wi-fi, too. Great location, walking distance from MRT and bus stops, and also Clarke Quay and key places.
But what I liked best is how accommodating and friendly the staff is.

Very nice hostel with a familiar atmosphere. Very central, clean and very helpful staff at the reception. The only thing missing is a bin in the room, apart from this is an excellent hostel! Highly recommend!

The staff we really friendly and it seems like they are willing to answer your queries at any hour! The whole place was really modern and clean, showers and toilets were immaculate. Free breakfast was toast, spreads and bananas but it was fine for us! 26 bed dorm was absolutely fine, only problem is people snoring but you get that anywhere. Would definitely stay here again.

An excellent hotel that will exceed you’re expectations, clean room, clean washroom, and most important a friendly and informative staff Mr. Valentin and Ms. Jackie including the housekeeping. It is located in the heart of the city, so no need to worry, almost all you need in terms of attractions food, malls, Metro station are there. Thumbs Up to you guys!
God Bless...
