Liked: Good location near lavender mrt

Disliked: Safe nots in room, mine was not even on the sane floor. Felt safer carrying my valuables around with me rather than leave them at the hostel where the door is always open and there's not always someone on reception checking who goes in and out. Toilets and shower were always dirty.

25 July 2014 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Staff was very nice and much willing to help the travelers. It was quite close from the MRT station, Arab street, Little India, and 20-30mins walking distance from the Marina Bay. Convenience stores are near and a small Chinese market was available near the hostel. Had a good time meeting new friends there.

Disliked: Some guests were staying for a long period of time(one guy having an internship in SG) and some families with kids were staying there which made the place little awkward and crowded. The room I stayed was full of stuff they brought. The fridge was always full. They prepare the breakfast a night before (Before the staff goes home at night). bread, peanut butter.... hum... honestly I did not feel comfortable the food being out in the hot&humid temperature for hours. Recommend fixing the issue.

Liked: Rooms are very clean, with air-con, quiet and breakfast is included. A key card only allows people to enter a room who actually live there. Breakfast is included and to be had from 5 am - 12 pm, which is very backpacker friendly. Wifi is good and fast.

Disliked: A few more toilets wouldn't be too bad and some hooks around the sink areas would be lovely.

Liked: Location is good.The Train from the Airport Stops at lavender Station which is just around the corner . Because transportation System is well developed you come around easy and fast. Hostel is a Basic Place to sleep not more Not less. There is Not really a backpacker Traveller Atmosphere. Most People here (asians) come to visit the City and are out the Whole Day. So there are not a log Meeting points. Shower & Toilets are ok. You should Not expect a private Hotel Bathroom. More like Public shower in a Swimmingpool :)

Disliked: Dont expect too much its a Basic Hostel in Good Location. If you are searching for a cheAp Place just for sleeping and are not fussy about this and that, go for it. If you are a Little Princess and upset about Noise and stuff , you Probably should go for a private Hotel Not a Hostel

Liked: The hostel is a 5 minute walk from the green line airport train. It is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. It's very friendly and clean, quite a lot place to sit, and a quite cosy lounge area. The kitchen is ok, the usual hostel breakfast is included. There is a few food courts nearby with traditional Asian food, and a large shopping center with a few minutes further.

Disliked: Can left no negative feedback.
