“quiet and friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2012

nice small place, close to MRT and walking distance to food courts, little india,...even cbd.
very friendly and helpful staff. all beds have a small light and a locker. there is a small common area at the entrance to meet other people, also some outside tables, great for breakfast. by the way, breakfast is reeaally basic, if you need to eat something else than just a toast, bring your stuff

This hostel was easy to find and close to lavender road MRT. The staff here were very friendly and helpful. There was a display of leaflets for sights or staff could give you advice. I extended my stay for 2 extra nights as I felt relaxed here.

The beds were okay and had lockers. The dorms are large and surrounded with air con by curtains, however staff emphasise a respectful silence at night policy so noise is not usually a problem. There's a nice area in the front with a wide selection of DVDs.

The only downside to this place is that there are just 3 showers (2 combined with toilets) so frequently you have to wait for the loo. There is a place to hang your laundry.

This place has a nice atmosphere and was very clean.

If you just want place to crash go thereand you wont regret it! The staff is so friendly and helpful and you wont feel disturbed because there is fair guidelines on how to behave! Like turn of the light and be quiet, etc. The door have a code lock at night time so you can feel safe! I will definately go back!

This hostel was really great! We were only planning on staying 2 nights but ended up extending to a total of 8!
The staff was really friendly and helpful, with a lot of knowledge about the city. They helped us out more than just a few times.
The location is great, very close to Lavender MRT. You can easily walk to little india, bugis street market or the arab district for example.

The dorm rooms were good, with individual reading lamps and nice beds. The facilities was nice and in good shape. They also had a washing machine and dryer on location. The included breakfast was simple but nice.

I really recommend this place:)

Staffs are extraordinarily friendly. Service are perfectly good. Rooms are nice, neat and secured. I have not lived at other hostel so far, so I am not sure whether they have similar rules, but I found these rules, such as don't eat or drink inside the room, turn off the light after 11.30pm and don't talk over mobile phone inside the room really helpful. They help us live well with each other.
