The location is great it's close to the Skytrain, Clark Quay and lots of restaurants. The hostel is decently clean and averaged price for the bed but as for all the extras there are charges for everything; washer and dryer separately plus detergent which they occupied the whole time so we couldn't do ours when I asked numerous times, and towels were 2 dollars each. They also turned off our AC while we were in there in the evening and took our remote away. They told us they had hot showers but that proved to be false also no lights on during the day so good luck having a shower in the dark. The owners occupied the common area all day and night. We left after staying one night because we were not pleased which became another problem because we had said we may be staying 2-3 nights we werent sure when we checked in. They tried to charge us for 3 nights and that turned into a heated uncomfortable conversation. My bf and I felt as if we were staying in there house and trespassing. Next time your in Singapore walk past City Center Backpackers and down the street are 2 other great Hostels called 5 stones Hostel and Woke Home Hostel. Safe travels!

Room tip: 5 Stones Hostel or Woke Home Hostel they are in the same building reserve before you come to guarantee a spot.

24 singapore dollars per night for 10/12 bed dorm room. Pretty standard price for the area. Good location- in Clarke Quay close to the train network. Nice clean place with free internet, two bathrooms, washing facilities and tea/breakfast utensils.

Place is owned by an Indian guy called Ravi, who at first was nice and friendly. However he soon soured towards me and my friend when we befriended a 19 year old swiss/german girl he took a liking to (cooked her dinner, gave her free accommodation and took her out for drinks) so that was an interesting turn around. If you're a young attractive girl planning to stay in Singapore and don't mind a flirt, give it a go!

The hostel had table football and a TV (albeit with few channels) and locks in dorm rooms with keys to keep valuables in which was very useful. Overall a decent stay if not slightly bizarre!

Good things first: the location is excellent and the hostel is quite clean, and it's ok if you only need a place to sleep for a night or two. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend. Twin private room appeared to be a tiny closet with a bunk bed (two persons standing + two backpacks was enough to fill the space completely). The bed was really uncomfortable, since the bed base was badly broken (!). Communicating with the staff was challenging - eg. we had to ask like five times about getting our laundry done before anything happened, and some of the younger staff members were a bit rude and didn't seem to have any interest in actual customer satisfaction (we still were asked to write a nice review when leaving). Next time I'll spend a few dollars more to get much better value elsewhere, but if this is your only/best option, it's bearable.

The price-quality ratio is absolutely satisfying and the location of the hostel is ideal. Unfortunately there was something wrong with the air-conditioning, so it was pretty hot, but nevertheless I would return to this hostel due to its advantages. They had lockers in the rooms that was very handy so we could leave our stuff in there. The room I stayed in was a 6-person room, only for girls.
I hardly saw any employee in the hostel, but everything was available, so that was okay.

the hostel is located in the alley near clarke quay MRT. the bed sheets is dirty and a bit smelly. the dining area is too small, only two tables there. i have to wait long enough before the other guest finish their meal so i can sit down and eat. there's no hot water to shower.
