Free tea, coffee, juice, and breakfast all day. Well made pod beds. Movie room. Well located or Orchard Road. Friendly, helpful staff. Fast free wifi and computers. And on top of all that it's got charm, character, and is very easy to feel at home in.

nice staff, very clean, good service. Beds are comfy...if you're not taller than 1.80 m, I guess (I'm 1.62, so no problem ;-) ). Location is good. You get good value for your money.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2009

i stayed there for 40sgd a night. quite reasonable considering there is a free breakfast (usual stuff: coffee/tea/juice/bread/cereal/milk), free laundry,free internet, books and magazines to read on. the room is quite a hike because there were 2 narrow flight of stairs so if you have a lot of luggage you'll have a bit of a difficulty. bed is nice and cozy. the toilet and bathroom gets a bit messy at night because its a communal place, other guests just leave their toiletries on the sink. the MAJOR advantage of this place is the location, its just a train or a walk away to everything you'll ever want to do in singapore. BUT getting to the hostel for the FIRST time is a bit tricky. TIP: when you get out of the mrt station, just TURN right and walk straight up, don't cross the street until you see the habitat hostel sign or else you are in big trouble.hehe.

A little tricky to find because of the crazy road numbering! Once you're in, they're very accommodating. There's free internet, free wifi, free breakfast, free laundry, a small library, video room.... It's only been open a few months apparently but it's already looking a bit worn, but then it is in an old building. Rooms look bigger in the pictures than they really are! Rooms are cheap, it's in a good location.
