Poor 2.0
I’ve booked 4 bed for 3 night but when I checked in the hostel staff told me I’ve booked only 2 bed (Eventhough I showed him my booking detail that showed 2 room with 2 bed 2 adult per room and the total price that I’ve already paid BUT he just said it’s only my return ticket not the hostel price) And that night he said we can share the bed together but my brother have to go to stay&sleep at the rooftop and on tomorrow morning IF noone check out my 2 friends have to go to find the new hotel for stay! It’s OKAY IF you looking for place for JUST STAY only 1-2 night (and don’t worry about smell bathroom or cleanliness) BUT my first impression about this hostel is -1000 point now :( and I think I’ll pay for better hostel and service.

Nice hostel at a decent price, no wifi in room :(
Stayed at Central 65 to avoid the high prices of Singapore. The check in process was quick and easy. Keycards are provided for the front door and locker key for your luggage ($10 deposit just incase of incidentals). Bed and linens were great and quality. We had a queen bed for my partner and I. The curtains in the bed gave a sense of privacy which was nice compared to other hostels I have stayed in, in the past. The in bed safe didn't lock which was a drag and because they are shallow you cannot really charge a device and close it with annadapt. Shower/washrooms were mixed men/women and fairly clean. Breakfast was bread/toast with spreads (peanut butter, two types of jam, butter) and corn flakes with milk. The real negative of our stay was that we didn't get wifi signal from the room.

Fair 4.0
Only good thing about this place is the location!
This place is well located near a subway station and that's about the only good thing I can say..... The hostel is generally filthy, specially the bathroom!!! There was even a swarm of fruit flies in the shower!!!! They force you to walk around barefoot in and around the dormitory and the bathroom and we were disgusted at this given the sorry state of cleanliness of the place..... Also there is no elevator and we were assigned the top floor which was an ordeal for us to bring our luggage up five flights of stairs!!! I find that the advertisement of this hostel on Expedia is misleading and therefore I would like to have a refund of my hard earned money so I expect Expedia to contact me regarding this soon.....

Very good 8.0
One of Singapore's best budget hostels.
This is one of the better hostel options in Singapore. The pod style bunks are quite comfy, and provided with proper thick and clean bedding/pillows. There is also power charging and a towel rack inside the pod. Ample space for luggage in provided lockers too. Wi-Fi speed is fast, and constant throughout the whole building (apart from the rooftop garden). Speaking of which, there is a spa on the rooftop, but I suspect it hasn't been used in years. Free breakfast is provided each morning, with 24hr free tea/coffee. MRT is within 5 mins walking distance so not an issue for getting around. There is little to explore in the nearby area, but there are a number of hip bars very close by.

Very good 8.0
even though i check in late, 12am, I still can get the bed and have a good sleep. its amazing. i remembered when i arrived the hostel, i realized that the reception was closed i am so frustrated. I asked myself how i can get another hostel. however, i saw a phone and a phone number for late comers. I dial and got the key finally. thank you for their arrangement.
