  • This is a wonderful hostel and I can't say enough about how good it is. It is one of the best hostels I've stayed in and I would not hesitate to recommend it. The manager Diane is very helpful with tons of info about the area. The long-term residents were all friendly. It is well located between two MRT stops and there is a movie theater nearby. The room was very clean and the common area was very comfortable with a nice sofa. There is free Wi-Fi and a low cost washer and dryer.

  • Worst experience in a guesthouse. I never saw anyone who worked in the place until my 2 hours before my checkout when the woman who supposedly worked there went into my room and stole my laptop and passport. She berated me, would not let me speak, accused me of things I had never done and basically threatened me to get out of the hostel before checkout. In order to get my things back I ended up having to pay double the price of what was owed for my stay. Diane is a complete psychopath!

    Natashia knew exactly where I was since I LIVE in the hostel and obviously made attempts not to pay for her stay. She avoided me until I finally had to confront her for the money and yes we asked her to leave since her conduct was not honest.

  • The time when I was there, I was the only female, but it was OK coz I got a single private room. The toilet can be cleaner and tidier. There are lots of soaps and bottles of shampoos left by the previous tenants. You can use them if you don't mind. It's about ten to fifteen minutes walk from the nearest subway.
