  • I liked the house itself and it's style with all the wood. And I liked the room where you can chat with people and make friends maybe.

  • One has to be aware of lower heights of door jambs and some hip-ridges of other houses stuck into the courtyard. I have already experienced bumping my heads several times. Walking along the aisle is quite uncomfortable if you are not used to small and narrow spaces. Usually in Japan, hostel staffs are very welcoming and treat you in a very friendly manner, but I didn't find such things here in Small world. Atleast they are helpful. I would rate them 7 out of 10.

  • Really hard to find. We search for 2 hours. Then the facilities are pretty poor and there is no ambiance.

  • This place looks and feels great, really nice vibe. Even though the location isnt that centre - it's near the river and gradens and of course near a MRT. I did really enjoy my stay here, everything you need for a budget traveler and really homely. Top place.
