    Very good

    Easy access to city center by public transportation and/or by walk. Good value for money with necessary facilities. I like that my room has safety box.

    Noise from night club outside since my room faces Mosque St.

    Exceptional

    - The location is really near Chinatown mrt and it is near the city area of Singapore like Clarke Quay, City Hall, Raffles Place, and Orchard. Room-wise, it is clean and comforting to stay with. This is an excellent inn if your purpose is to tour around the city and stay less in the hotel.

    - The room is quite small and the pictures shown in the site is different from the actual rooms but nevertheless it is good.

    Good location.

    The bar on the ground floor is rather noisy. The rooms are clean but no common space at all.

    Wonderful experience to share a room with 11 others - people were quiet and very nice, and took care about each other. Great common facilities such as washing machine, drier, water dispenser (hot, cold), etc.

    No elevator. We should remove the shoes and slippers every time when enter the room. We have to use only one toilet and one bath room together with other room members, no privacy… quiet environment

    I honestly can't say anything good about this hostel

    Reason we booked this place was cause we wanted to save monye and they had free WIFI.Their free WIFI didn't work anywhere in the buidling and I was generally online for max 30s and then it took some minutes if i was lucky to reconnect or find the WIFI. I notified the staff but they never fixed it.

    Good

    Location wise is very strategic place.. You can easily reach the nice food and MRT in few minutes time.

    The hotel price is reasonable and well equipped with all those hair dryer, iron, free wifi and etc ... The toilet is clean and the mattress are all clean. Overall the cleanliness is good and only the girl who in charge for the bed arrangement and payment is not so friendly and dont smile at all... But other worker is not bad ...

    Very good

    Good location: near train station (MRT) and bus stops, near restaurants (even 24-hour restaurant), near souvenir shops. Reasonable price: we got air conditioned room, clean towels and sheets, access to the kitchen and free internet, and warm shower (ahh, feels good after full day traveling). Staff and other guests were friendly.

    Room a bit small (as expected). No elevator, so we have to carry our heavy bags to 3rd floor. Have to turn on the water heater manually (no written advice, so we have to find out ourselves). TV has blurry image, the manager should fix this, because as we queue to the bathroom, only the TV is the entertainment source (when the free internet computers are occupied).
