“Amazing curry around the corner - Hostel okay”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

If you have been traveling through the rest of Asia there is no getting around it - Singapore is expensive!

We chose here because it is relatively cheap but mainly it is close to really cheap but amazing Curry around the corner! If you like your curry it is a great place to stay.

Nice staff in the hostel - lots of people around if you are a solo traveller - internet works well- clean - rooms small!

It is located some few corners from a train station, and Bugis Street.

Everything you need as a lone traveler is available. Shared kitchen, wash room and other amenities. You may not have the usual comfort of conventional hotel accommodations, but if you travel alone, and explore the scene all day, all you need is a good location, good shower and fast internet.

The place is basic, not much else to say really. Rooms are small and windowless, the ac can be a joy but also a curse depending on individual body temperatures. The communal bathrooms are smelly, but that's what you get when you have lots if people having number twos in steamy shared facilities. Most travellers keep themselves to themselves, communal area smells like a tattooist. Area is great, just what you expect for something called little India. If you have a tight budget don't come to Singapore and moan just don't come, there are lots of sea countries to visit and get more for you £.

Not a bad hostel- we stayed in Jan 2014.
the hostel was located in Little India which was not very nice. Dirty, noisy part of SIngapore. the streets at night in this location are very busy 90% men who made me (a girl) feel very uncomfortable.

Pros
friendly hostel staff
free breakfast (not too bad eggs and toast)
free wifi
good communal area
discounted tickets to attractions
lockers

cons
location!!
threadbare blankets (though it was warm so didn't really matter)
squeaky beds !!! (if you are staying in a dorm will hear every persons movement)
unisex bathrooms were a little unclean

was happy with our stay but probably wouldn't stay there again due to location

Room Tip: Dorms not that great, privates not too much more plus have own aircon

I stayed here for 4 nights and really loved it. Great chill out area, free breakfast, beers from reception in the eve and lots of people up for chatting. Dorms are basic but felt totally safe the whole time. Tip! Use the second floor showers and loo. HIGHLY recommend the scooter tour! Was worried it wouldn't be great but was amazing and even after 3 days of the city I saw loads of new places I hadn't been! Massive kudos to Hilmi who runs the tour. Very very happy and would recommend to anyone visiting Singapore.

Reviewed 7 January 2014

The hostel is a 10-15 min walk from the MRT station Bugis, which is on the green line from the airport. It has a small kitchen area with the usual tea/coffee/water, and breakfast of toast is included. There are 4 or 5 tables to sit at. Just behind this is a lounge area with a big tv and some comfy chairs; just off to the side is a raised area with cushions where you can sit and use/charge laptops, tables, phones etc. There are 2 or 3 communal pc's too. As this area is really small, it's very loud due to the tv and people talking, so no chance of writing emails or checking the internet in peace. The stairs up to the dorms are narrow and steep, and there aren't many toilets and showers for the amount of beds. They are only on one floor, so if you're on a different floor and need to go during the night, you've got to go downstairs. The dorms are very cramped. Also, I had the top bunk which was right under the a/c which meant that I had cold air blowing on me all night. This was very uncomfortable and cold, and they didn't give me extra blankets. I also had to sleep with my head under the blanket. The dividing wall to the next dorm didn't go up to the ceiling, so you got the noise of all the dorms. The hostel is in Little India, which is quite noisy and dirty. The only good thing was that it was near the bus station for the busses to Malaysia. I wouldn't recommend this hostel as there are better ones for the money or much better ones which are just a bit more expensive.

Room Tip: Don't get the top bunk under the a/c. Only the lower floor of dorms has toilets and showers.

walk-able distance to two bus stations (Bugis station and Little India station.) Very welcoming lobby area, free computers and internet. Every other traveler was friendly and happy to be there. Clean dorms, but a bit uncomfortable to share toilets and showers with both males and females. Helpful staff.
