Stayed at the Grace Lodge for one night stop over. After reading the reviews here and on agoda I expected a basic clean place just good for one night.
Rooms are what you expect at a backpackers place. There is nothing to complain about for that price in Singapore. The staff guy was helpful and friendly. But...
When we got there by 4pm we could hardly get into the house and reception area, as the small space was packed with bags, bottles. It was difficult to get the luggage inside and we couldnt see the reception desk at all. In front of the reception desk was a bin overloaded with trash. This trash was still not emptied when we left at 6am next morning. The kitchen area was filled with dirty plates and cups, clothes for drying and another overloaded bin, which also wasnt cleaned up before we left.
In the reception area there are two computers just next to the door and they were used non stop by the staff member and his friends until late night. Instead of cleaning up the mess, the staff guy was busy playing computer games. When we got up early morning, he had a friend over who slept in the sofa in the reception area and he slept on the floor behind the reception. By then the table in this area was fully covered with old food containers.
In conclusion, beds ok, the orgininal idea of this place quite nice, but maintainance and reception/kitchen area is a catastrophe and out of my perspective so dirty, that is is a no go place.
