Liked: The hostel is at a great location, steps away from the MRT station and a gazillion eating options. It is very well maintained, clean and the staff is very warm and helpful and cheerful. They also have toast and PB&J for breakfast and hunger pangs at odd hours. Loved this place!

Liked: Location is good, and it was clean enough for my girlfriend, so perfect. :)

Disliked: Some things they can improve: 1.- They overcharge 4% when you pay with credit card. 2.- They sold us tickets to the Zoo, saying they had a discount, but in fact they were the same price as in the zoo's ticket office. 3.- The rooms are very small, so is not that cheap. There is almost no place for big luggage pieces in the rooms, so if someone has one you might have to jump over them at night, and that can be tricky... 4.- You have to ask for the A/C command control in the reception, and give it to them after switching it on. It should be sticked on the room's wall, so nobody can steal it, but still you can use it without having to go to the reception all time. 5.- The luggage place wasn't closed and they ask you 20$ deposit for a private locker, which I think is too much for a really small locker.

Liked: The staff were very friendly and the location was great. Very clean!

Disliked: The rooms were tiny, had to go on the bed every time someone entered. Also I stayed in the room by the door so I could hear everyone in reception at night. Also wasn't given a key to my door so anyone staying at the hostel could just walk in. Not sure if I would stay here again but the staff make up for it.

Liked: Good location right near the MRT stop. Also super clean.

Disliked: I didn't like the no shoes rule upstairs - was really annoying. I also thought it was really weird that the dorm rooms weren't ever locked.
