Liked: The airconditioning was the one thing that worked. And the internet.

Disliked: My friend and I arrived in Singapore at 3AM, so we booked the hostel from the previous night through the coming week and e-mailed the Manhanttan staff about our late arrival. Someone answered and said just to ring the bell and we'd be let in. After arriving at this hellhole, we preceded to ring the bell out in the sweltering heat for 45 minutes until a very scared looking Chinese girl who spoke no English finally let us in after being woken up, she was a guest and not a staff member and was rightly terrified at our presence. After waiting inside in the non-airconditioned common room for almost an hour (and waking up a girl sleeping on the couch who we thought was the staff member), a man who spoke no English but wore a Manhanttan Inn polo finally took us into an office, gave us keys, took the full amount of money for our stay plus $50 Sing deposit, and showed us our room. The room was small, all concrete and no windows, dirty as hell, with disgusting bunk beds with stained linens and no sheets besides the fitted one. Luckily the airconditioning and Wi-Fi worked. Unlucky for us, we had an unexpected house guest at 5am after our 20.5 hour flight from LA and the time spent getting into our room; the biggest cockroach I've ever seen in my life was right there on our mattress. After killing it, we knew we were in for a rough stay. The bathrooms in this place have the toilets inside of the shower and no toilet paper.... also just 1 sink with soap - and the bathroom stalls are infested with ants. This is the kind've place where touching anything, even in your room, makes you think that you're going to get tuberculosis. Luckily for us, since my friend and I are moving here, we found a great apartment after just 2 nights at the Manhanttan Inn. When we managed to find somebody to check out with, we got our 50$ security deposit back but none of the money refunded for the 5 nights we didn't stay. We were just so happy to be out of there it really didn't matter. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place like the plague that it probably incubates.
