Pros:

- cheaper than most of the hostels in the city. For SG$25, it's really a good find in Singapore.
- accessible. It is just around 5 min walking distance from Lavender Station which makes going around easier. Close to restaurants, ATM and shops.
- good internet. I worked during my 3 nights stay there during the evening and I never had a problem with their fast and reliable internet.
- customer service. Sue is really commendable with her service. I asked for their laundry service coz I run out of clothes and she managed to sort my clothes in 1.5 hours despite the short notice. She also gave excellent tips. It was my second time in SG but my first time as a solo traveler and without the comfort of fancy hotels and guides.
- value for your money. You get everything you paid for and more. I never thought there's a way to do Singapore in a cheap way.
- bathrooms and rooms are sparkling clean.

Cons:
- it isnt famous yet with all the Western backpackers and majority of the guests are Indonesians and other Asians (no offense with Indonesians, I sooo love them) so if you are looking to "talk" with people, it's going to be a tough deal because of the language barrier. However, I managed to use this as learning curve for me and despite being really hard to converse with my fellow guests, I gained some friends and got invitations to visit their countries (which I will next year)

- It would be better if each bunk has curtains like my favorite hostel in Makati. It helps a lot to ensure better sleep and privacy for guests.

Overall, I am satisfied and will definitely come back.

Very easy to find hostel. Staff were very nice, flexible even. Would have loved if she had put us in one of the many empty rooms instead of filling the room of 8. Rude occupants turned lights on while people slept, were noisy & made the a/c 29degrees. It would have been cooler outside! Terrible sleep thanks to the noise of some travellers (with kids!) who came in to nearby room around midnight.

All that wouldn't have been so bad but the next day I was itchy. And the bites started appearing. Not sure if bed bugs or Mosquitos (windows were closed) but I've never had such an allergic reaction. 4 days later and I'm still on antihistamines & calamine lotion. A great start to my 2 week holiday.
Would never stay here again.

Stayed: November 2013, travelled as a couple

Dear Bonardette

Thank you for your review and I apologise for this late reply. I was overseas and when I returned I needed to investigate your complaint before replying you.

We are indeed very sorry to hear of your issue with the bed bugs as I can only imagine the irritation from the itch you must have been feeling for the rest of your holidays, yes it s not a good way to start a holiday. I know, as I have been bitten before also on a recent holiday and as I have learnt, each person reacts differently and I m one of those with a bad allergy to it.

As you may know most hostels and even 5 star hotels are unfortunately not resistant to these horrific pests as they are great travelers and we have been constantly monitoring our site to prevent such an occurance but due to the high turnover, we might have overlooked the seriousness of an infected bed and these pests breed fast and furious.

Ever since your complaint we have guarantined that room while we spent hours stripping the beds and ensuring all corners and crevices have been treated as you know our beds are wooden frames and hence many hiding places. We have chemically treated as well as gassed the room and basically inspected the whole room with a fine tooth comb. We are confident it is free of any bugs for now and we will continue to monitor our whole hostel very closely.

We do hope that we may have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Gusti Bnb in the future and should you have any queries, do write to us directly and we would be pleased to answer it .

Wishing you and your family a good week ahead.
Sincerely yours
Bernie

This was a great location, great value, and great find as I visited my son who is a student in Singapore. In my 5 nights there, over two weeks, Sue, Audrey, and Bernie went out of their way for me and others. A few minute walk to Lavender MRT Station, Fair Price Grocery Store nearby as are low cost food stall near station and a Wendy's if you really need an American treat. They cleaned and aired out room everyday, great new mattresses, hot showers, and cold water machine.

Actually this hotel is the last option of some list hotel which i have already chosen beforehand. But my choice this time really the right decision, felt like home. Staff a wonderfully hospitable esp. Audrey. The bathroom and bedroom very clean . Just 5 minutes walk from MRT Lavender station and cheap food stall nearby, mostly halal food. 7eleven store beside the hotel. Next trip to singapore.....i ' ll be staying here again..... !!! love gusti bnb

Room Tip: Gusti inn situated above the cafe, if you take your father or mother who is old i suggest to order the guestroom be on the same floor with the front desk
