Even though its a backpacker inn but everything are excellent. Cold aircon, clean toilets and bathrooms, good wifi, comfy bunk bed. All the guests are very understanding and they wont bother about you. When they talked literally like whispering because they knew that other guests were resting.

I like the place. The toilets and shower enclosures are clean and the bed is comfortable. It has almost everything that I need. The MRT stations of Lavender and Boon Keng are not too far away, and I can easily walk to the stations.

This location is what you would expect of a backpackers hostel, trying hard to be trendy and full of other backpackers. The rooms have small bunk beds in them and they don't have privacy curtains. But the rooms and beds are clean and well kept. The bathrooms are a different story. They are outside and not very clean at all....

First, great thanks for their hospitality. Second, good location to access public transportation. Third, feeling comfortable to stay, clean, safe, and fun to chat with other travellers. I hope everybody could enjoy staying at this hostel. But I wanted to have more travel information, including local tours at there.
