We stayed here for two nights at the end of August. The rooms are set up as privacy alcoves with curtains blocking the entrance to your space but you are more or less in a dorm i.e you can hear your fellow roommates. We had a double with air con and a safe. Very comfortable, clean, with a nice common room area (with complimentary tea and coffee). The bathroom is unisex. It was clean but could do with a makeover. The staff were really friendly and full of information about the area.
You can easily walk from here in to the city centre through little India but if walking's not your thing then Lavender MRT station is just down the road.
Lavender food hall (local hawker centre) is around the corner and is brilliant for food. Try the chicken rice and the pork dumplings.More
