Fair 4.0
Dorm is huge so there’s no privacy & it smells of everyone’s body odour. It’s so noisy because of the size and also the windows don’t shut so you can hear the road really loudly. No AC just fans so if you’re on the bottom bunk it’s BOILING. Fruit and juice at breakfast would be nice but they did provide butter, jam, peanut butter or chocolate spread for your toast which is more than some hostels. There’s a kitchen but you aren’t allowed to cook in it 🤔 Laundry price is reasonable but can’t remember exact cost.

가격이 매우 저렴하고 잠만 자기에는 Good !!
싱가포르의 다른 호텔대비 위치나 가격적인 측면 대비 만족할 만한 숙소이었습니다., 저렴한 가격대비 너무 많은것을 기대한것은 없지만 단순히 잠만 자기에는 좋은 호텔입니다. 밤새도록 시원한 에어컨이 나와서 더위걱정은 안해도 되고 나름대로 투숙객들이 조용해서 지내기에는 괜찮습니다. 다만 친구 또는 젊은 커플이 가능하지만 가족단위로 가기에는 불편함이 있을듯 합니다. 그리고 가격대비 너무 많은 것을 바라지는 않지만, 침대와 바닥사이의 먼지와 샤워실의 바닥이 경사지지가 않아 물빠짐이 어렵고 샤워 파이프가 고정이 되지 않는것은 빠른 개선이 필요할듯 합니다... 그리고 도로 옆이라 밤에 자동차소리가 시끄러운점도 포함 됩니다

Enjoyed my stay so much!
Cozy hostel, so fresh, not so many people when we were there, close to two different MRT + little india, unlimited toast for breakfast. The toilets could be bryter but it was ok, free soap. The beds and the aircon were amazing! Big locker for your whole backpack.

Nejlevnější hotel, ne nejidealnejsi
Lidé na pokojích hodně bezohledni, žádné soukromí, cena kvalita stále ne ideální
