Poor 2.0
Best cheater
Hotel took the amount using our card info without our permission. We booked for some dates but unfortunately dates have been postponed. Tribes theory used this event as "No Show" from our side and took our money This is absolutely a fraudulent action. Even after this also we asked for rooms on the postponed dates, they said no rooms available and it may be for the reason of avoiding our claims

Bath area is clean, bed is considered decent but the room could've been colder

Good 6.0
Disappointing and poor value for money
Great location and very friendly, helpful staff, although wasn't given any information about there being breakfast or shown/told that there was a common room area. I had booked the smaller dorm but was put in the large one, by the time I realised I couldn't be bothered creating a fuss to move. The aircon was pretty weak so the room was quite warm and due to the angle of the pods you didn't get a lot of airflow, the pods themselves were really, really small with no where to put anything. The beds were pretty hard and also the lower ones were on the floor which I'm not a massive fan of but especially in this case as every time the door opened and closed the whole floor vibrated. The hostel really didn't feel very clean either, oh and the shower height was not adjustable and definitely designed for Asian's, I struggled and I'm 5'8... Overall I was incredibly disappointed for what I paid (it was expensive even for Singapore standards, if it was half the price then it would've been acceptable, I don't understand how it is so well rated, I was thankful I only stayed 1 night.

Great vibes, friendly staff
Great location right in the heart of the Ann Siang district. There are many restaurants and bars around and it is only 2 minutes walk from Chinatown, and not too far from Chinatown station. Staff were friendly and helpful and are always down for a conversation. Cool vibes, and love the vision and atmosphere in this hostel.
