i had an excellent stay. at first it was rough going because i haven't stayed in hostel in quite a few years. i initially had expectations of a hotel. but once i remembered that it is a hostel, not a hotel, then i was able to appreciate the simple efficient service and facilities. it is clean and the staff was excellent. very friendly, helpful and professional. all of the staff were wonderful with the exception of two. firstly william was beyond exceptional. he was excellent. i was coming from malaysia and called first with many questions. william patiently answered all my questions and even guided me on how take public transportation to the hostel. the second exception is tingfu. he will help those who stay, but he is not friendly to all guests. he picks and chooses who he will be friendly with and "go the extra mile." he did not like me so even though he helped me, his attitude towards me and his treatment made it clear that he did not like me. i also saw him treat others the same.
but all in all,putting tingfu aside, it was a great stay at a decent, affordable clean hostel. i recommend it to anyone traveling to singapore on a budget.
p.s. willaim usually works the 2 to 11 pm shift.
