Liked: Good location and quiet at night even though near the clubbing area.

Disliked: Very tiny single sleeping "box", not for the claustrophobic or bigger/taller person. Same goes with the toilets and bathrooms.

Liked: Location was great. Good for a quick stay in Singapore.

Disliked: The rooms are very small so there isn't much space to oraganise your luggage or sit and relax. Good if you need a place to sleep and go out during the day.

The property's response is

Dear Sir, we sincerely apologize for the bad experience that you had. Aircons are free for guests to use 24 hours a day. We do inform guests that from 2-5pm, we would be airing the room for better ventilation. We leave the controllers in all rooms so that guests have full control of aircons. Breakfast are also topped up fresh and each guest has a keycard that only allows access to the main door and their respective room. We're sorry for your bad stay and hope to be able to make it up to you.

Liked: The staff were so friendly, we arrived late at night and they were up for us and even gave us some money on lend to buy some food. Great atmosphere and not a far walk to a station and they let us stay all afternoon on the day we were leaving and use the showers. I would reccomend this as a great place to stay!

Liked: It was near Tanjong Pagar and Chinatown MRT. You can get souvenirs from Chinatown and there were also lots of eatery places nearby. There was one Fry Bistro rooftop restaurant which is just right at the other end of the street. Worthed going for a bite or two

Disliked: The building was very small and almost difficult to locate if I hadn't seen the map
