Liked: overall, the property is just OK. nothing special for a backpacker. They had TV, washing machine (additional charge), good bed and pillows, clean toilet. I would recommend this 'hostel' to other, and for sure I would be here again if I visit Singapore in another time

Disliked: when the firstime I arrived there, it didnt look like a hostel. more look like 'a flat' (appartement). in the living room and front door did smell 'stink feet' (for real). Geylang is place of "Prostitute" so, I should be aware of people around.

Liked: As described it was certainly very close to the train station giving the hostel the advantage of allowing travellers and backpackers to access transport to Changi airport or access to visit Singapore itself. The hostels provision of breakfast and a clean comfartable bed was was adequate. Good place for a short stopover if you want to see Singapore or if you are in transit to Changi airport unless your flight is before 9.00am.

Disliked: Initially hard to find even after leaving the train station. The main door is a plain door on Lorong street next to a corner shop. It is not well signposted and only has a small sign stating SG 98 on the door. Steps lead up to the main office and some hostel accomodation as the other rooms/dorms are up another flight. No hassles there but you are obliged to leave your footwear outside your accomodation and if you have a good pair of walking boots they could be nicked. Just my observation. Because the main door was not closed at night on one occasion. Otherwise OK. Not sure about showers installed in toilet cubicles. Not really a great place to meet fellw travellers.

Liked: I enjoyed the few minutes walk from the Aljunied MRT. There are lots of Chinese restaurants around and the price of the food is affordable. Cheap laundry can be found a few blocks away, somewhere at Lor 23 Geylang (if not mistaken). If you crave for fruit, you can find the wildest of all around here for eg Durian. I like mingling around with the backpackers here. They were very friendly. It provides the experience worth the money you pay for. I love the bed.

Disliked: The toilets are very small and one of those toilets in the second floor does not seem to work so well, especially when one wants to do business no.2. A big label "Sky Orchids" shall be visibly seen on the main entrance (door) located on the ground floor. It took a while for my friends and I to look for this hostel. We went few blocks away and finally, a passerby helped us out.

Liked: It's located very near to MRT Station, could get earliest MRT (much cheaper option than taxi) to airport for my early morning flight ETD 7:45 AM.

Disliked: I had to leave early (before 6:00 AM) and asked of I could get breakfast because I saw that they already bought packs of bread since the previous night, also it would be easy to leave coffee/tea on the kitchen table for me to enjoy before go to airport...but they refused! Breakfast strictly started at 7:00 AM. Rude and unfriendly staffs.

Liked: It was near cheap food stalls.

Disliked: Stay away from here!!! Directions on this website were horrible. I needed to go to website for a picture and still had trouble finding it because they have now sign! They have strange rules like "people loitering after 9pm will be handed to the police" or "sitting on someone else's bed will result in a $20 fine"... Hot like heck in the common areas, the toilet seat had a crank, and the same booth the toilet was in was the shower... And the floor was wet... They make you sign a waiver where if anything happens, it's all on you. Other places, I just showed them my passport and that was it. The couches in the common area were just bunched and cluttered up together, impeding path to the doors, and there was paint peeling from the wall. Staff wasn't just ok.
