Liked: Internet was strong and the crowd diverse, stayed in the same room with Australians, 2 people from New Zealand, Germany and England. The hosts were young and friendly. AC in the actual room. There are towels available for rent plus water and beer for sale.

Disliked: Very hot in the lobby. Bathrooms too small; the towel hooks were situated inside the bathroom so the clothes and towels would get wet during shower process. To get to the bathrooms one needs to go through lobby/rest area where people have breakfast and can see you. Otherwise a nice place.

Liked: Friendly and helpful staff. The capsule experience was also not bad great having your own light and power point. Place is well organized and Desmond's walking tour was excellent help me get to know the local area better and try some Singapore food.

Disliked: Shower area could be cleaner and have more hooks to hang stuff but it wasn't much of an issue.
