Reviewed 23 April 2012

We booked for the family suite, it was fully booked on Saturday, it was a delight they informed us the family suite for 4 was available on Friday. Next day we changed to the double rooms and they let us check in to our new rooms at 8am since there are available rooms. We had a wonderful weekend, with clean room, normal breakfast. The staff are efficient and friendly. Wifi is superb. U have to bring your coffee/tea , the kettle, teacups, spoons are available. The hostel is very quiet . The guard on the 3 rd floor parking is friendly n accommodating. Parking is foc.
Location wise is convenient , near to shoppings mall, park, museums, everything. Our 1st morning was raining rather heavily, we waved to a taxi in front of the hostel and a taxi stopped for us! Charged us sdg5 for the quartet to marina sands bay.

First we choose the hotel because of the price and the review I found in tripadvisor are mostly clean and neat. and its proven to be true.... we stayed 2 nights there in their newly renovated room. We only use the room for sleeping practically so we dont know about the hotel during daytime. It has standard breakfast... outside foodcourt's meal are better while in Singapore hehe.. no need for any hotel breakfast. location wise not bad. The staffs are friendly and smiley. the service I would say, very good. the only downside of the hotel is the shower. The water is so small, its about preference... we like strong shower. So because of that we might not be going back there next time. Unless they fix that part. very unfortunate because everything else are good for a budget hotel.

Great value for a centrally located hotel. Subway station is just a few minutes walk. Rooms are small and basic but clean and tidy. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Can't say that the breakfast provided is wonderful. It seems standard cafeteria fare. The pink coloured ham does not look appetizing! Given that the guests are mostly Asians, I would suggest more Asian food.

I stayed here for 2 nights with my husband and 2 kids, age 6 and 12, and we had a great time. We had an en-suite family room which was clean and comfortable. There was plenty of choice for breakfast, the staff were friendly and helpful, and we had fun in the swimming pool. We would happily stay there again.

Hotel (or hostel) location is just perfect; right at the start of Orchard Road. It would be hard to get a hotel at this price along Orchard. With the MRT, everything is within easy reach. Carrefore Supermarket is just nearby. Rooms are ok and clean, although a little outdated but the lobby, corridors and cafeteria are nice and modern. Breakfast buffet is ok, with a good spread of quality food. It tends to get crowded though if you are not early. I booked a family room, which was just good for a family with 3 young children. Since if you are vacationing in Singapore you hardly stay in your room, this hotel with its reasonable rate is perfect. My family went to Universal Studios and watched the Song of the Seas after, we arrived safely in our hotel a little past twelve midnight at the convenience of the MRT.

The location of the hotel right at the beginning of Orchard Road, net to the National Museum and about a block away from the Art Museum; not bad for starters. We also enjoyed it for several other reasons:

1. The breakfasts were wonderful in that they catered to both Eastern and Western tastes. Since I like Chinese congee and lots of fruits, I was very pleased. A;so, there were eggs, beans, sausages, toast of various kinds, sale, pastries, fish, tea, coffee, etc. etc.

2. Our room was pleasant, all the equipment seemed modern and functioned very we'll: AC, wifi, shower, safe and it was very clean.

3. While the price was much more expensive than our accommodations in Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur, according to the research I had done about Singapore, it was not unreasonable.

4. Some of the staff was helpful with directions and advice about site-seeing, but not all.

5. The Y is within walking distance of several large malls with food courts.

6. The swimming pool on the roof was lovely, very refreshing. Not good if you're allergic to chlorine.

7. We had dinner at the Y our last night, and it was quite reasonable and good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevators since that space in front of the elevators was freezing and i...

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.
