Liked: Great location and very homely.Clean.

Disliked: As a traveller your hostel is your home away from home, this place felt like a home but one of the staff members was incredibly rude and I constantly felt like I was walking on eggshell. There is a t.v available to watch movies, which 6 of us staying at the hostel decided to use, the hostel was empty at the time but she shouted at us for the volume being to loud (we were all very respectful people, so this was not the case it was also like 2 in the afternoon and no-one was around) she also began to shout at me bescause the throw over the couch was not straight (she told me to get off the couch so she could straighten it!) Basically unless you are as quite as a mouse this place is not for you! Also the included 'breakfast' is nothing but toast....literally

Liked: Perfect place to stay in Singapore! Close to eveyrything, really friendly staff and very cozy atmosphere! We stayed in the 24 bed dorm which was no problem because the common areas are very comfortable. Feels like a little fammily- definately recommend staying there!
