Friendly staff and comfortable hostel, good for backpackers or solo travellers. The only cons is the numbers of bathrooms for the number of guests. You will have to planned or wait before going to shower/toilets. The hostel has a good social area to meet and discuss with the other guests. It also has a good location not too far from MRT station and Little India district for shopping.

On a Busy road
My honest opinion, location was ok, 10min walk from the metro. Customer service was good.The dorm of 12 was a huge room. The bed was hard,one ladder for everyone to climb to top bunker,Air condition and small lockers in the room. Breakfast included with a big dinning table. WiFi was fast. Only 2 toilets and 2 showers for entire place and clean once a day. 2 spare PC to use with keylogger software installed.

Good hostel with basic amenities. Friendly staff.
Friendly and helpful staff. The hostel is very close to the Boon Keng MRT, which made it easy to get around. WiFi was a bit spotty on occasion, but good otherwise. But it still was significantly better than the WiFi I used at a more expensive hotel in Singapore later, so, guess it was as good as it gets? Shower was a bit finicky, and I didn't much like having to take cold showers. But can't really complain considering the price. Overall a good hostel, with basic amenities and free WiFi.

sehr gute Lage,abseits des Entertainment-Tourismus
sehr gut erreichbar über MRT Farrer Park. Sauberes und sehr gut geführtes Hostel. Sehr engagiertes und sympathisches Personal. Einziger Knackpunkt: die Hauptstraße war im 10-Bed-Dorm sehr laut hörbar ... Ansonsten super Frühstück mit Toast, Coffee, Tea, Jam + Nutella included.
