I would never stay here again. For S$55 a night, this hostel should be ashamed of the way that their place is kept. I have no idea who wrote these other reviews.
We checked into a dusty room on the 3rd floor that had a significant amount of mold on the ceiling. The stairwell smells like a public bathroom. The hallway walls are dirty and the bathroom is filthy and moldy. Of 3 women's bathrooms, one is out of order and another is missing the toilet seat. There are apparently no toilet seats in the men's bathrooms, either. Here's a tip: if you're not going to clean often or well, perhaps white should not be the color-scheme of the hostel.
There is a huge tv in the room--considering that there are only 2-5 watchable stations, why spend money on the tv instead of a more robust cleaning staff or fixing the broken bathroom?
