Did one night in the dorm and 4 nights in the private rooms upstairs.
Private rooms value for money are better than any hotels in the area. Spacious with a shared bathroom between the two. Only downfall is the stairway to heaven you need to take to get there.
Dorm was good. Nice cold aircon which is a must have in a tropical climate.
Bar is killer! Cheapest drinks on the strip and a ridiculous 12 hour happy hour along with 2 for 1 drink specials most nights and $5 beers all day everyday. Meet heaps of colourful characters sitting out the front - very social atmosphere.
Staff were very friendly. Daz and Mikey Looked after us our whole stay and were great for a laugh.
Location cant be beat. Roughly Halfway between Raffles Place and Clarke Quay MRTs less than 5 mins on foot to each. Good view of the light show from Marina Bay Sands at night from the bar area.
Will definitely stay again!
