Liked: The staff were very friendly, the owner introduced himself and tools me about himself, Singapore and introduced other guests. It is right beside main part of China town abs very close to twomrt stations, so that was great!

Disliked: There weren't individual outlets by the beds so charging electronics had to be left out in common areas. I didn't have a safety locker but everyone else did so that's fine. My bed sunk significantly in the middle to the point where it wasdifficult to sleep. It was also initially difficult to find the check in location, but none of it was particularly problematic. Still a good stay.

Liked: I like that I don't have to stay there again.

Disliked: The bathrooms were too small, there was a lot of noise from the outdoor performances just around the corner in Chinatown, the beds were not the most comfortable, and to use the internet there in the office was a joke.

The property's response is...

Liked: Its hard to review properly because of the time of year, it was Chinese New Year so like some of places we stayed there lounge/cafe was shut, the room was clean enough and we were lucky enough to get an empty dorm to ourselves so we were happy on that front! Didn't see the staff again till we went for the free breakfast.

Disliked: The breakfast was pointless - just thin white bread and packet 3-1 for both the tea and coffee.. So not very impressed there. Also the tea and coffee making facilities were non-existent in that there was no hot water in the THERMOS... We did look for somewhere better after one night.

Liked: As described the location of China town is great, It´s close to other tourist attraction. It´s better to go to the hostel from Chinatown MRT than Otrampark. The room and bathroom was quite clean, staff was very helpful, they borrowed me adapter for phone changer , so don´t buy adapter, just ask the staff, they have it several. There is a locker box, just paid 10$ for deposit , after leaving you get the all amount of 10$ , not just 5$ so that was great. Free wifi offered.

Disliked: The hostel is really hard to find, It was not like in the picture they showed it here, here it looks like the hostel is in the street, but It s actually on the first floor. Room was quite small, but clean. There s no place for talking to other travellers. I just stayed here for 2 nights so for short time it s ok.
