  • We are pretty tolerant travelers and usually don't review hostels but this place is pretty bad. I think the woman's cat must have died a few minutes before we turned up because she is soo grumpy and rude. We were told off for everything including not closing the crappy front door quietly enough and carrying shoes inside? It's not a nice environment and not very fun. A/C only in dorm and only between 7pm and 11am. Shower's seem to have developed their own species of blue mold. But it's cheap

  • I just stay one day in Empire, the facilities very average. I accepted, cause the price is cheap. The price never lying, no breakfast no coffee or tea even white water. And the location is far from MRT station, i have to ride the Bus to get MRT station. If you stay just one night, is doesn't matter to stay here. But if you stay more 1 days or more, you better find the other hostel. Because so many hostel more good than this. But overall empire hostel so great.

  • Really nice place to stay in Singapore if you don't mind walking to MRT for 10mins. Great value for the money!

  • WiFi, fan, fridge don't work. AC in room is kept at a higher temp. Lobby AC is never switched on and has a slow fan that keeps everyone hot and unhappy. WiFi signals are low even at night when all are sleeping.

  • A little out of the way - could give out free maps of the area. Could sell padlocks or provide them.

  • The location is not convinient that means you need taking a walk, but persons were so warm and friendly. Surely, you'll enjoy your stay.
