“okay, lah!”
Reviewed 19 January 2012

Located in downtown Singapore. Has the great advantage of being near convenient stores (7 eleven), train station, a cinema and food stalls.Cheap price that goes with dorm type bedroom, midget lockers, one pillow/blanket, common bath/toilet (bath towels are for rent), audible noise from the outside and bedbugs...eeewww!! Working A/C, hot showers and free use of computers - had several on our floors aside from the ones in the lobby. Usual breakfast fare of bread, coffee, choco and tea. Arriving early for the check in time, my family was allowed to haul up luggage to our room. Fortunately, we were booked on the 1st floor. Overall - not even perfect but just good for an overnight stay.

Convenient location; only 2mins away from Little India MRT station. Across the hostel there's a good restaurant with various types of food (the fried rice is THE best!). Then next to the restaurant there's also Rex Cinema (if you dig Bollywood's movies). 7-evelen is about 3mins walk, then about a block there's also Cold Storage supermarket. The room is very clean and tidy, although no amenities (you have to bring your own). My advice, bring your own towel too! Or, you can always rent it for SGD2. Breakfast is included; all you can eat bread with different toppings and coffee/tea. Remember, if you don't finish your food, you'll get charge. So, take enough and if you're still hungry, you can always take more afterwards. We booked the double-room on 3rd floor; nice although small.

Room Tip: - Avoid rooms that face the Rex Cinema and around; very noisy during the weekends (probably because...

The hostel could do with some maintenance, not overly clean and the rooms were very small. breakfast area was outdoors so was quite messy and couldn't cook. It was quite loud with guests checking in and out throughout the night, however this was due to our room being opposite the reception area. Due to the location it would be ok for a short stay but plenty of nicer hostels in the area for this price

Location is very good...just a short walk going to and and from Little India MRT Station...saved us a lot of time! Area is very near the usual food restos and two 7-eleven stores. Small but tidy when we were there. We took an 8-bed dorm which is best for my entire family since we had the room all to ourselves. Typical double deck bed and inspite of some negative reviews we read here...tidy/clean, no cigar-smell and no roaches in our room. Bed is okay though only one pillow is assigned per bed. Airconditioning is good too! For an overnight stay, this is a perfect place to stay.

Room Tip: Highly recommended for a very short stay. Area is safe. Though a little bit noisy at night. If you...

Reviewed 21 August 2011

If you don't want to read longer explanations, here are my main complaints:
1. The hotel downgraded my reservation without asking me.
2. In a period of less than 12 hours, I killed four cockroaches in my room.
3. Extremely loud.
4. Not clean.
5. Ultimately, overpriced for what you get.

1. My girlfriend and I booked a room with a double bed 45 days in advance. On the morning of the day of our arrival, we wrote an email to the hotel to confirm our reservation and to advise that we would be arriving at approximately 10 p.m. When we arrived, the hotel employee said, "Um, actually we don't have the room with the double bed for you." We had to sleep in the two-person bunk-bed room, which is a windowless prison cell. How does a hotel mess up a reservation made 45 days in advance?

2. Because the hotel leaves all its windows open with no screens, and because there are no doors between the kitchen/bathroom area and the guest rooms area, the guest rooms are easily infested by insects. In my one night's stay at G4, I killed four cockroaches in my room.

3. The hallway outside the guestrooms has a tile floor with no sound dampening material, and the rooms also have bare tile floors and bare walls. Consequently, sound echoes loudly inside the rooms, even from all the way down the hall. My room was as far from the bathroom as it could be, but I was still awakened at 6 a.m. by the sound of a man vomiting his guts out into the toilet. I was also kept awake by constant noise from other guests having loud drunken debates, locking each other out of the rooms for fun, etc.

4. The showers and toilets were not clean.

5. I paid $72 Singapore dollars for the worst night of accommodation I've ever experienced. Should a room of that price be infested with cockroaches? For S$72, should I be awakened by the sound of someone vomiting? Should I expect a clean shower?
