I arrived in Singapore extremely late in the evening and was greeted by a lovely Chinese woman who made me feel right at home. Because of how late I arrived, I was unable to exchange my currency into S$'s but she said I could pay her the money tomorrow. She showed me the room and the fee breakfast area. Around...

That's what we did when we arrived at 10.30 pm. We called dennis and he already left the key at reception desk, also he...

Location wise this place is good. The nearest metro station is a 5-10 minute walk, while over the road you've got a range of good restaurants and street food heading into the Little India area. For the three nights we stayed we were spoiled for choice of nearby restaurants. The dorm rooms are pretty bleak. Beds are fine and the...

The bed was hard,one ladder for everyone to climb to top bunker,Air condition and small lockers in the room. Breakfast included with a big dinning table. WiFi was fast. Only 2 toilets and 2 showers for entire place...
