  • The place is ok, but there are no elevators, and too few toilets with shower (only 3) on my floor for 20 females. The breakfast is included and good and th location is excellent. Good value for money Veronica from Argentina

  • Fantastic! Helpful and friendly staff and unbeatable on price for value. What better way to start the morning with breakfast on a rooftop! Great Wi-Fi and computing facilities. I'll be back! ;)

  • The location is near the Bugis MRT station. It takes only about 10 minutes to go to MRT. The staff are very nice, if you have any questions about Singapore, you may ask them, they are happy to answer them. The restrooms and toilets are clean, even if they have been used by many backpackers. You can only enter the dorms with a magnetic card, so I think that the security is very good! I am a student with few money, and I think the price of the shophouse is worth.
