The staff here are so lovely and helpful. The dorms are clean, comfortable and cool. Really good location right by Clarke quay (nightlife/shopping area). Free computers to use in the common area along with free coffee and toast to start off your day! Would definitely recommend to any backpackers heading to Singapore.
