This Hostel is at floor landing and easy to access, no need to walk up stairs. Great location, just a few blocks from the Lavender subway station. The staff were attentive and helpful and allowed early check in. Bedroom and bathroom are clean. Breakfast provided bread & coffee.I recommend it 100%.

Nice enough. A typical hostel for backpackers. They have free breakfast (bread, jam, coffee and tea). If you just need a place to crash in and you are on a budget, this hostel is good enough. It is near Lavender Station so, you won't have problems with commuting.

I have been to a number of backpackers' hostel in Singapore and around the world but this is essentially the WORST place I have stayed at. I have made my booking 3 months prior and paid my deposit as required. I even confirmed my arrival before that. However, after arriving at the place and giving my details & passport for...

Was very disappointed with this place, booked at least 1 month in advance and paid in full through Agoda and even confirmed reservation the morning of my expected arrival directly with Pillow Talk as I was arriving late at night, was told all ok for my booking. So I was very shocked when I arrived just before 10pm and in...

I stayed here from 2 to 4 march 2018. Previously I have ever stayed here in 2014. I just felt a little bit of facilities degradation. The pillow was a little bit thinner than before and the room light, not the bunk light was too bright for me. I got upper bunk so, I my eyes felt dazzled. The key...

Sometimes it is just one word, which strikes your mind when you think back of things, situations or people. This place just kept me changing the buzzword. It started with great location, went to tiny, dirty, "Is this a joke?" Followed by discusting. And it found its sad peak in BED BUGS! Would not recommend it by any standards unless...

I was browsing long listing of hostel for my 2 night stay in Singapore, close to public transport is my first priority, so I chose to stay in pillow talk as I also valued my privacy (they have curtains for each bed). Though the water heater didn't function well but is was okay for me as Singapore's weather is hot....

I booked (Agoda) a space in the girls' room which is more expensive than the mixed room. After I was sent to my room, I realized that I was assigned in the mixed room which made me uneasy (it's why I booked the girls' room after all). I heard the same issue from another customer, but the owner did not...

The dorms are nice, the train is close, the wifi works, there are shops and restaurants nearby and the staff is cool. You find both asean and western people. Basic breakfast + tea & coffee all day. Clearly recommended!
