Overall, great experience. There are two 14 person rooms, which make for difficult sleep at times, but that's expected. Nice location; cheap food across the street, little bit of night life, 5 min walk from the MRT. The main drawing point was the staff though. They're always helpful, always smiling, funny as hell, and so personable. The second I walked in, I felt welcomed and right at home (great atmosphere too). They're well informed about activities and directions and love to just sit and chat with anyone. Seriously, ask them anything. If they don't know, they'll sit with you and find out. The place is practically spotless, the bathrooms particularly. Great, great place. I would recommend to anyone.
