6/10 Okay


Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Room comfort
The hostel itself is really nice, clean and well run but their is a club that places music across the street until 4 and then other venues play music through to the morning as well which made it impossible to sleep even with earplugs. We had the double room on the 3rd floor with the street-facing window. Other roomprobably aren't as bad.

Nice place well situated
For a youth hostel, the place is fantstic. We all have a locker and a lot of space to place our stuff. The breakfast is not big but ok. And it's situated on the best street ever

나쁘지 않음
위치가 좋고 주변에 음식점, 술집들이 많이 있음. 방 안에 에어콘이 그닥 시원하지 않아서 잘 때는 괜찮지만 조금만 움직이면 더움. 샤워실이 남녀 공용인데 반투명 유리막 샤워부스라 거의 다 투시되서 사용하기 좀 민망..

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Worst experience I had in my life in any hotel. I was sick with hard diaharrea and I had to share a bathroom, that was out of paper very early in the night. I had to change to another hotel I order to not disturb the other clients of the hotel and to have a normal bathroom for somebody with diaharrea. I tried to talk with the hotel and have a refund but it looks that for the hotel is more important 200 USD than the commodity of the other people sharing the bathroom, they prefer somebody threw it up or having to go to the bathroom every 30 minutes and no paper to clean than returning those 200 USD and have all the clients happy. Really knowing how they treat me while I was really sick ( with proofs) I will never recommended nobody to stay here cause you could have in your shared room someone like me bordering you the whole day and the hotel doesn't care. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE the only black point in my excellent visit to Singapore

Delayed Planes, Hipstercity made sure the stay was
For a solo traveler wanting to explore two days in Singapore, Hipstercity fit my need perfectly. Unfortunately, my plane was delayed a day from overseas and I didn’t have a way to inform them. Many hotels would cancel your stay if you wouldn’t check in at the reservation time, but they left me a late check in form as well as a key when I arrived at 2am. Such a delight! Free earplugs, but there’s a chance that you may hear some really bad karaoke singing or throbbing bass from the bar downstairs late at night. There’s lots of activity in this area. FANTASTIC coffee in the lobby and some cereal and bread for breakfast. Hotel staff is super.

Good location and interesting setup
This hostel is a bit expensive for the area and type of accomodation. Nonetheless i would recommend it. The setup is tight with a bed and shelving all stacjed on top of each other, but it still feels like you have privacy. The hostel is clean and centrally located. The breakfast is solid and self-serve (cereal, fruit, toast). My only concern would be around security. There isnt anywhere to store luggage securely and the door to the shared rooms us only locked at night.

Awesome place, they gave us ear plugs on check in. Room was a little warm at that time (but I don’t know any hostel in SEA that’ll air condition mid day) Decor was creative, bed was super comfy and location was very walkable. Would definitely stay here again. Liked it better then my last trip when I stayed at Arab street area.
