“great location but very small room”
Reviewed 4 March 2013

I stayed here in dec 2011. I took private room with 1 bunk bed for 2 person. the room was small but quite clean.
no private bathroom, I even saw an europian grandpa walking around kitchen making a tea only using his towel to cover up his body. feel not really comfortable when I was having my breakfast and seeing something 'not good looking' like that. maybe the staff should've asked him to put on his clothes.

the good thing is location. it's near bugis street, only 5 minutes on walk, 3 minutes to bugis mrt, 10 steps to bus stop and a lot of restaurants down stairs.

This is my first time staying at this hotel. And my first time ever sharing a room at a hotel with few other guests. In fact I am having fun at this place. The hotel, is very clean, friendly management, and friendly guests.. I already met people from different countries. The rate is very reasonable in comparison to the rates of other hotels in Singapore. I advise those who come to Singapore from Indonesia or other countries to try this hotel and enjoy its cosmopolitan nature..

Room Tip: If you enjoy meeting people from around the world and want to spend little money, this is the place...

I have been here for several times as this hostel is centrally located in the city thus traveling is convenient for me. Bedside that, the rate is reasonable as they also provide free Wi-Fi and breakfast. Rooms and toilet are consider clean but there is still room for improvement. Staff are also able to provide me with the trave information I needed. Will definitely be back again , thanks for the stay though.

The bathroom facilities at this hostel are not the best. There bathrooms are on each floor and there are no shelves in the shower for toiletries. Also, you need to bring your own toilet paper. There is no lift to this hostel so one flight of stairs to the reception and all the rooms are another level up. It is cheap so there are alot of travellers there and alot of people staying on a temporary arrangement. Unfortunately there was someone in my room who snored all night and it was difficult to sleep. The bunk beds also creak constantly.

Thanks to a review by a blog, I decided to try for a stay at this place. After spending 3d2n there, I would say that this place is a good place to stay. why?

1. It's at the edge of the city: I prefer to walk around a city rather then taking a ride with public transport. So the location of this hostel helped much with my sightseeing activity, not just around Bugis, but also to Syed Alwi Rd and Marina Bay.

2. Affordable price: Having a 4 bedded room at SGD20 per night, with wifi connection (although it's time limited), air-con and hot shower which in good condition, located in front of Bugis area (with Bugis+, Bugis Junction, Bugis Village and not forgetting a Bugis restaurant under the hostel) for me it's affordable.

3. Kind-hearted owner: They are friendly and helpful as well. Always greet you when they saw you, and very kind to help if you have any requests (of course, only for requests which are possible for them to help).

So all of the above are the reason why you should consider Cozy Corner as a choice for you to try for a stay. But strictly, this is not a place for whoever who would want a place like a 3 to 5 star hotel. Maybe the comfortability is at minimum level, but still, to have a little is better than not having it at all. Besides, it's just a place for a good sleep after spending most of the time outside.

expensive compared with other hostels in the area. not very communal feel. we had booked a room with air con but on arrival found we only had a fan. we were given a refund of the difference but this wasnt the point. wasn't terribly clean (although i have stayed in worse) but the beds were quite uncomfy and the showers not great. also the wifi didnt really work. all in all disspointing.

Room Tip: choose a room with air con
