YMCA One Orchard
Reviewed 11 April 2012

The hotel was clean and neat. It is not as luxurious as the others but it is good value for money. The location is great! It is just a stone throw away from the MRT station and the National Museum, and there is even a bus stop right in front of the hotel. The staff were kind and accommodating. The buffet breakfast was just ok, but it was filling and again, worth the price.

We stayed at this hostel last February 2012. As the family room was already fully booked, we requested for connecting twin rooms at the top floor. As this is a hostel, don't expect room service, means that you have to bring your own luggage to your rooms.The rooms were adequate in size, just enough for four people to move around. The rooms were clean and the shower had good water pressure even during peak morning hours. However, the beds were a little short for tall people.

The free buffet breakfast were somewhat boring, having the same variety almost everyday. They have a spread of American and Oriental flavors. Food taste were on the average.

The best thing about this hostel is its location, having all sorts of land transportation conveniently situated near the proximity of the hostel is a big plus... makes going around the city so easy, but when taking a taxi back to the hostel, you must specifically tell the taxi driver that it is at one orchard, or else, they will take you to YWCA at fort canning road. I had to argue with the driver about that, I even showed him the hotel's business card.

I would probably stay here again the next time I'm in Singapore.

Room Tip: higher floors offer a great view and quiter surroundings

Stayed in this hotel last January. The hotel's location is one of its advantages. It is close to the MRT and a walking distance to the many shops on Orchard Road. Room is clean and basic. Breakfast buffet is likewise basic but sufficient. Overall it is a nice cheap hotel.

I was a guest at the YMCA from 13-15 March 2012.(1)The reception at the front desk were just businesslike and impersonal.(2)The housekeeping department should keep the room cleaner not with hairstrands still left on the bathroom floor after cleaning the room!(3)The housekeeping should CHECK first any small plastic bag containing personal items left on the BED not in the bin before just throwing them away!! I left my boxes of MEDICINES on the bed and they just threw them away without checking first for left behind belongings!! For that YMCA has very BAD impersonal housekeeping staff!! Thank you for giving me a chance here to tell as it is. My family and I have been staying at the YMCA and other hotels everytime we visited S'pore but this is FIRST for throwing away left personal items especially medicines for hip surgery without checking first!! The YMCA and TRipAdvisor should EVALUATE and REPRIMAND their staff and services better!!

located strategically in heart of Singapore, only 5 min walk to Dhobi Ghaut MRT and you can get around Singapore easily. the staffs are also very friendly - they really care about you. standard room, bathroom is clean, breakfast is nice, speedy wifi, the room price is also not too high - so worth it - you have to try.

Have stayed with my friends for two nights (Feb.28 & 29, 2012). The location is perfect, near Dhaubi Ghaut station where you can take the MRT to bring you where ever you want to go. The room may not be so big, but who cares as long as it can accomodate two persons without bumping to each other, right? Room amenities, I got nothing to complain about. Bathroom is clean and they change the towels everyday, made up the beds. Breakfast is just so and so.... important is just fill up your stomach so you won't get hungry soon :) One thing that might irritate those who wants quietness, just a bit noisy but still me & my friend manage to get over it. The staffs over the reception counter wre super nice and helpful. I definitely will come back again and bring my PROC clients :)

With the location on Orchard Road and close to the MRT station Dhaubi Ghaut, the YMCA is perfectly located. You can walk to Little India and the BUs No. 36 runs straight to/from the airport (travel time approx 1h).
The room as redone and had everything we needed. The bathroom was very clean and the towels got changed when needed.
Breakfast was perfect, not over-luxurous, but everything we needed.
Also a plus: The pool on the roof.
I will return for sure !
