"Excellent location, good value for money (for Singapore). There are no hidden extra charges like other hostels (lockers, use of computers, etc.). My stuff was safe apart from when I left things out!…"

Liked: Excellent location, good value for money (for Singapore). There are no hidden extra charges like other hostels (lockers, use of computers, etc.). My stuff was safe apart from when I left things out! Nice staff. It's a good place to stay if you want to stay cheaply and lots of the sights/chinatown are in walking distance.

Disliked: The main downsides are the lack of space at breakfast (only one table) and the lack of atmosphere.
