This place is OK if you're really travelling on a budget, especially since Singapore is generally very expensive. This hostel is also conveniently located a short walk away from Chinatown MRT station and from general downtown area. What I find unacceptable is the amount of mold in the small shared washroom (How much can it cost to replace a 10...

I travelled with my friends, about 8 people for taking wedding photo. The owner let us stay in a family room, gived us a map and showed us how to use MRT. The room is very clean. One boy who tidy up every day is receptionist. He is very nice people, helped us many time in spite of the fact...

I just needed a place to stay overnight in Singapore and found this hostel available in the cheapest price I can found so I grab it immediately. It's located in Chinatown which is great because of the many nearby hawker stations. However, it took me a while to locate their exact location. When I arrived, the owner was outside chit-chatting...

Stayed here on our last night in Singapore. The hostel is located on the busiest parts of Chinatown, near the Chinese Temple. The rooms are very average and a bit tight, but for its price, you really couldn't expect much. There's no free breakfast, but that really isn't a problem as there are a lot of affordable restaurants and hawkers...

Don't expect luxury when you book the cheapest bed in the Chinatown area. Uncle, the owner, was so nice that he accommodated us even if we checked in earlier than expected. The hostel is basic with a few rooms with bunk beds, AC, water heater, WiFi, and only ONE shared bathroom. Location is perfect as it is near the temples,...

I am budget traveler but this hostel is the very basic hostel that I ever stay. I stay at dormitory room. the lower bed doesn't have lamp and even a plug and not high enough so it's difficult even for sit on your bed. Only one toilet which is not enough for all guests. If you are a moslem, it...

we stayed here for two nights in April 2015, after experiencing an awful hostel at the other end of town! This hostel is in the heart of Chinatown, surrounded by street markets and very good and cheap food markets. The mrt is only a short walk away. It's quite a little hostel. The only downside I'd say is that there's...

I'm sorry to point out this single negative about this hostel. Andrew the owner is wonderful & helpful - you couldn't meet a better gentleman. The location & security of the hostel is great. Wifi is strong. There is no breakfast provided though TA says so; ServiceWorld website does not claim to offer it. No worries. The set menu in...
