      Good value hostel”

      Good value for Singapore at $12/night. It's 7-10 minute from Bendemeer, JB, Lavender and FP stations, so not right near an MRT but not far from many lines. The hostel is quite clean. The mattress is plastic wrapped and fresh sheets are waiting in your locker upon arrival. No bed bugs. The bathrooms are also kept pretty clean, except some clogged sinks. Breakfast area is clean. The staff are nice and friendly. Facilities are fine. Only 2 toilets and 2 showers per floor of 24 beds, so there can be a queue. Some of the bunks also have bent bed supports because some couples share 1 bunk bed, so you can sink in or feel a hard bar in the middle. Wifi can also be a bit weak due to # sharing. Free breakfast is toast with butter, PB, nutella, and jam, plus coffee and tea. Only negative is the guests. Seems many are budget travelers/couples with no etiquette -- first night I had to kick out a girl from my bed, another night a guy took my sheets, on phone with no headphones at 1am, etc.

      I recommend these hostel because of a very warm and approachable staff. I really like them, all of them .This place is easy to find just drop at Farrer station then walk at least 100 meters at kitchener road. Infront of HolidayInn Express. I love the staff because They will take care of you once u are in their custody. I agree to some that the aircon is noisy.,but its ok coz its very cool. The breakfast is bread with peanut butter and others are unlimited same with the coffee, milo etc..the double bed is comfortable with pillow . Dont expect too much to this hostel because they give the best service they can. But im sure u will feel at home when u are here.

      I like the location which is near the MRT and bus station, the staff are very helpful and accommodating, the price at US$7/night 👌(thanks to Agoda.com), with free light breakfast to keep you going, the bed blanket and pillow is clean..ready inside the locker, though it's a mixed dormitory.. I manage to have my privacy by asking for a pieces of cloth to cover my space. I've noticed that hot shower is not functioning in one of the bathroom. It would be good also if you have a mini grocery for those traveller who stayed late at night.. Overall it fits for someone whose on a budget..

      if you are backpackers to spend your money efficiently, this place will be a good choice for you. there are many convenient facilities near this hostel; city square mall, many plaza, nearby MRT station, gym etc. Also, in singapore, the price of beer is too expensive to drink everyday. but in this hostel, you can drink 500ml beer only 4$ and 2 beer only 6$ here. Futhermore, the hostel provide you free breakfast; toast and 4 kinds of jam. With simple breakfast and drinking after walking around, it must become excellent.
