This place is about value and location. Full stop. 30 bucks for a nicely air-conditioned dorm room I shared with a friendly stranger named James. 3 beds but only 2 taken. Like all hostels it's not quiet, but bed was comfortable and clean. Showers were good. It's a hostel so don't expect the four Seasons. Very good for what it...

This hostel let me down from the start. The guy working on reception was rude and didn't have anytime for us. The room it's self was ok, had everything we needed. The men's shower room was conveniently located for me as it was on the same floor as we were staying but my girlfriend got lost on the way back...

This hostel is located in strategical area, alongside picturesque Singapore River. The nearest MRT is Clarke Quay (Purple line). At the Clarke Quay MRT just find the exit direction to Eu Tong Sen Street (I forgot which exit). After you reached outside of MRT station you will see Burger King. Turn to left and walk straight. You may notice that...

One of the worst hostels we have ever stayed in. The twin room is fantastic if you are a fan of Harry Potter. I am not exaggerating when I say it is literally a cupboard under the stairs. Room is tiny, ventilation did not work correctly and therefore the room stank consistently of whatever was in there before us. The...

It is very easy to get to attractions from the hostel. You can either choose to use Clark Quay MRT or Raffles MRT. Getting Uber is quite easy too because there's a parking spot nearby.

Staying in The Quays

Neighbourhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
