“Clean, hospitable, convenient”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Out of all the hostels I have encountered during my travels, Fisher is by far the cleanest and safest one. Security is top-notch as there are CCTVs and secured doors which can only be unlocked using a card-key.

Hostel hosts were incredibly helpful and warm towards us, always willing to offer pointers when approached. The dorm was very clean and the beds were very comfortable and relatively squeak-free. I was very impressed with the sturdiness of the lockers, which can comfortably house a cabin-sized suitcase and also clothes on hangers.

Convenience-wise, the hostel is equidistant from Lavender and Farrer Park MRT stations. There is a 7 Eleven nearby and also you will never go hungry due to the hostel's proximity to hawkers at the adjacent stadium and also to the Lavender Food Centre. You will also have no difficulty in hailing a cab on Tyrwhitt Road.

All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Fisher and I cannot recommend it enough to anyone who is looking for a hostel stay in Singapore!

Dear Kwok Wei

Thank you for choosing to stay in Fisher BnB! We are very happy to know that you have enjoyed your stay with us!

Cleanliness, security, functionality (in terms of the lockers) and service are areas where our team put in our utmost effort to make our guests stay a memorable one!

Being located just 10 minutes away from 2 MRT stations (Lavender & Farrer Park), surrounded by 24-hours food centres, supermarket, convenient store, a public swimming pool and cafes, this make it convenient for guests to explore the City.

Your kind words of encouragement will certainly spur us to upkeep our standards!

Once again, thank you so much for giving us a positive review and we hope to be able to host you whenever you visit Singapore!

Your Sincerely
James & Li

The location is very easy to find just up the road from lavender MRT station, within walking distance of little India. The staff were both very friendly and very knowledgable on the city of Singapore. The facilities were modern, easy to use and the entire place was very clean. There is good WIFI which is extremely handy for forward planning whilst backpacking. My only regret is not staying in the mixed dorm as i feel this would have given me more of an oppertunity to meet and socialize with other backpackers. Also the pivate room has no window which is only an issue if you intend to spend a lot of time indoors, which i didnt. Altough i did manage to sleep for around 14 hours one night which might have something to do with the lack of sunlight, although more likely due to jetlag, laziness and being hung over.

Room Tip: Stay in the mixed dorm. The private room has great AC and gives you privacy, but you still share the...

Hey Christopher!

Thank you for writing this review swiftly after your departure. We hope you and the rest are having a ball of a time in Malacca and the rest of Malaysia :)

We hope you understand that our family room for 4 does not have any windows due to the construction of the building. Nonetheless, we still hope you enjoyed your stay here and that the 14 hour sleep you had (which got us worried for a little while) rid you of all forms of jetlag and hangover.

Usually we would recommend guests to catch up with fellow guests over breakfast as that's a sure timing that almost everyone would be centralised in the pantry. But of course, you could always come back next time and stay in our 18 Bed Mixed Dorm!

We really enjoyed hosting you guys and we are glad that the feeling is mutual!

Have a great remaining year long trip.
Hope to see you again and thank you for staying with Fisher BnB.

Yours Sincerely
James & Li

2 nights, solo

All people in Fisher BnB are asked to take off their shoes. It has pros and cons. Some may find it not comfortable, but I find it an absolutely efficient way to keep the place clean.

The place itself is so tidy and clean. Ventilation is enough. Floor is being vacuumed every morning. I feel it's even cleaner than a 4-star hotel (never been in a 5-star so don't ask me).

The most spectacular thing is the nice owner and staff. Owner prepares breakfast for us every morning, with variations. Most importantly, it's tasty.

The only demerit (may apply to other BnB as well) is the quality of bed. It "sounds" dangerous when climbing up the upper storey, but it's safe.

Hi Chris,

Thank you for taking time out to write this wonderful review and choosing Fisher BnB as your choice of stay!

We are glad that our guests appreciate our observance of a "no footwear" rule as this is to ensure minimisation of dirt and odour throughout the premises. We also understand the importance of hygiene hence thorough cleaning is done daily.

We deeply appreciate your kind words. Even comparing us to the standards of hotels, we are truly flattered. Our team surely does our best to provide our guests with a comfortable stay and tasty breakfast and compliments like yours merely reaffirms, if not enhances our drive to upkeep our standards.

Thank you for staying at Fisher BnB and once again for the review!

Fisher BnB will be looking forward to your return :)

Yours Sincerely

Fisher BnB is a great place to base yourself when travelling in Singapore.

Within easy walking distance of Little India and Kampong Glam and 5mins walk away from Lavender MRT station.

The Dorms are well thought out with good locker space, a power outlet and lamp for each bunk and really comfy beds. The air-con is fantastic (needs to be in Singapore) and the rooms and bathrooms are absolutely spotless. The showers are great and the breakfast (included in the price) sets you up nicely for the day.

Also it's literally directly across the street from a food centre which sells good cheap food (have the pork-rib and watercress soup for S$2.80).

Finally Li and the staff there are so friendly and helpful. This is what really makes the place. Li and another girl working there (so sorry I don't remember your name) really go out of their way to help you out and make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

If i was heading back to Singapore I wouldn't even look at anywhere else to stay. This is the place!

Hello,

Greetings from Fisher BnB!

Thank you for this excellent review. It is certainly an achievement for us to know that Fisher BnB is and will be your choice of stay. We continuously strive to provide guests with an enjoyable and memorable experience :)

We are located on the city fringe and hence is surrounded by many tourist spots. Not to mention, conveniently located between 2 MRT Stations - Lavender & Farrer Park, which are only a 5-10 minutes walk away. It is therefore really easy and convenient to get to places of interests.

We appreciate that you acknowledge the layout and planning of the room. We understand the needs of people especially when we receive guests from all around the world with varying requests, and hence try our best to fulfill the needs of every single one of you and we'll slowly work towards an all-rounded bed & breakfast team :)

I'm sure you are talking about our staff Shermaine and we'll be sure to convey your note of thanks to her.

Once again, thank you for taking time out to give us this wonderful review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay here tremendously and would love very much to have you back again!

Yours Sincerely
James & Li

We were a group of 11 exchange students from Sweden that stayed at the Fisher BnB our first week in Singapore before we find our own appartment. The Hostel was a very nice with fresh facilities, good beds and 2 big lockers for every bed. The staff was very friendly and helped us with everything we could think of and gave us many valueable tips about Singapore.

Right across the street there is a 24/7-open food court and bar where we spent many nights and met a lot of interesting travelers.

They even served a simple but good breakfast that everyday included one special-dish like omelett or sausages. Standard-dishes are toasts and tea.

Perfect hostel for backpackers, students and even familys as they have one small 4-bed bedroom.

Hi Anton,

Thank you for writing this wonderful review for us despite the fact that you're busy preparing for the start of school!

We would really like to thank you and your friends for being really considerate and mindful of other guests while staying cheerful and friendly during your entire stay. Yours and the rest's "Good Mornings" were a sure way to start our mornings on a good note :)

We really appreciate that you enjoyed staying here and found not only our facilities but the service we provided palatable.

Fisher BnB is located within walking distance to tourist spots like Little India and Kampung Glam, 2 24-hour food courts to choose from, a shopping mall and many cafes/eateries. Not mentioning that it's situated right between 2 MRT Stations - Lavender & Farrer Park, that is only a 5 -10 minutes walk away.

We are happy to know that you managed to make many friends during your stay and hope we managed to kick start your 4 month stay in Singapore along with your other friends.

We wish you the best in your studies and hope you enjoy the rest of your time in Singapore!

Yours Sincerely
James & Li

Stayed at the end of July 2014. Very clean rooms, beds and toilets. Very nice staff. Worth money spent. See NO dust in the hostel. Rooms are well ventilated. Very good to have 2 lockers per guest - top one for shirts and lower one for luggage. Locates on the ground floor - very convenient for guests not having to carry their big luggage climbing up stairs. I m sure to recommend friends to stay here and I will stay here again. Make sure to make arrangement if planing for late check-in, Cheers!!
