The male staff is rude. The upper bulk is difficult to climb and I nearly slip and fell twice. The sofa should be replaced.

First time in Singapore!
Excellent stay! I had my doubts because I usually don’t stay at “Hostels or Guesthouses” but this experience was nice! Clean; the rooms upstairs were very silence! I picked up a twin beds and it was nice! Cold A/C; small but is normal in Asia, so I”’ accustomed to that already! Chinatown is a block away (literally on the street behind); Chinatown food street is about two blocks; plenty of stores, restaurants near by and the Metro practically in front! I’ll definitely stay here again!

Excellent and some improvements
They should have said we need to bring our own lock for our lockers. But the staff were very accommodating. I would like to see more racks for hanging our damped body towels. Location is awesome as it is walking distance to hawker centers, malls, and souvenir shops

God location
Perfect location in Chinatown. It is a backpack but a nice one. Ok toilets and showers. Bunk bed in a double room. Good bed. God WiFi and coffe/tea and toast and jam is ok. AC and fan in the room. Storage room for luggage when you checked out. To be improved: more possibilities to wash your hands in the shower department. Reading lamp in the upper bed..
