Stayed 6 nights in Mar 2018

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Friendly staff and comfortable hostel, good for backpackers or solo travellers. The only cons is the numbers of bathrooms for the number of guests. You will have to planned or wait before going to shower/toilets. The hostel has a good social area to meet and discuss with the other guests. It also has a good location not too far from MRT station and Little India district for shopping.

Disliked: Cleanliness
On a Busy road
My honest opinion, location was ok, 10min walk from the metro. Customer service was good.The dorm of 12 was a huge room. The bed was hard,one ladder for everyone to climb to top bunker,Air condition and small lockers in the room. Breakfast included with a big dinning table. WiFi was fast. Only 2 toilets and 2 showers for entire place and clean once a day. 2 spare PC to use with keylogger software installed.
