The location is close to the MRT station, hence not much a hustle. The rooms are clean and quiet, just like I like it. And the staffs, especially Vincente, are really kind and helpful. Will stay there again when going to Singapore :D

I stayed here for a week and it was probably the best dormitry that I slept in on my five months trip. The place is very clean, and the location between Lavender and Farrer Park MRT stations is excellent. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
