This is one of the best hostels that I every had. The stuff is very nice and you really have the feeling that they care about you and you can ask them every question. Room and bathroom is clean. Breakfast and WiFi for free everywhere. Nice rooftop garden. It is good located.

Such a good vibe in the hostel! Not only the travellers who stayed here but also the people who are working there. They are very helpful and gives you the home feeling. Something what is not that common in Singapore. And it was not the first time that was in Singapore. I'm thinking about something negative but if I say...

일단 숙소 위치가 지하철역과 가까운 편운 아니라서 버스를 무조건 이용해야합니다. 근데 제가 정말 화가나고 짜증났던건 여기 너무 더럽고 위험한것 같아요. 특히 여자분들한테!!! 숙소 사용할따 신발을 벋고 이용해야하는데 신발을 벗고 맨발로 다녀서 화장실이랑 숙소가 깨끗할 줄 알고 기대했는데 바닥이 너무 더러워요... 바닥청소 안하는것 같고 다음날 아침에 보면 발바닥 더러워져요 침실은 그나마 괜찮아요... 화장실이 제일 끔찍해요... 저는 2층에서 머물렀고 1층 화장실은 잠시...

The hostel was very well located, the rooms were nice and bathrooms and showers were clean. The staff was very friendly and the rooftop terrace was a big plus! Breakfast is toast with Jamy and peanut butter but was totally fine for us. We had a really pleasant stay there.
