“Hangout at Mt Emily, i like.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2012

The rooms, service and the facilities of this place is awesome. You enter the place and you get this hip vibe with you that contrasts with the outside. The rooms are neat and nicely maintained. What I love the most is the buffet breakfast with wide selection of cold cuts, beans, etc.A bit difficult to find if youre taking the commute but if you enjoy walking around and asking the locals like me, then you will find this amusing.

Room Tip: if you still have places to visit on your last day but you dont want to carry your bags with you, as...

We (me and my wife) with 2 children ( 10 & 6 yo) share triple plus room for 3 nights at Hangout Emily. Just walk 5-10 minute down the hill to Little india MRT Station or to have sightseeing at Little India.

Breakfast has not much option, but this is the best value hotel in singapore for family.
The room is clean, nice - comfort beds, hot water, towels and Free WIFI on computer at 2nd Floor or in the room. Walk thru alley beside the hotel to the main street for foodcourt.

Room Tip: Choose the 6 floor with windows room for quieter room

The Good

- Staff were happy and helpful. Smiles were easy to find (actually, smiles were easy to find all over Singapore). Questions were always answered thoroughly & knowledgeably.
- Rooms are generally a good size. The two rooms I stayed in had ample room for two people. - Good sound proofing.
- Big buffet breakfast included in the room price. Some strange choices (early morning lasagne anyone?) but much appreciated.
- Laundry facilities on-site. Really useful and cheap. I don't know why more places don't offer washers and dryers.
- Free unlimited use of internet-enabled computers and building-wide wifi.
- Large common room with pool table and big screen tv.
- Awesome rooftop terrace with a nice view of the city centre and a shower pool to splash about in.
- Cleanliness in rooms and in all public areas to a high standard.
- Dorms are nicely laid out. Custom-built lockable cupboards separate each bed offering a bit of extra privacy.
- Quiet neighbourhood with a small, leafy park right on the doorstep. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It was lovely to come back to after a busy day of sightseeing.
- A general feeling that the place is well-run and that the staff care. Comforting for nervous travellers.
- Air-con! Wonderful, wonderful air-con!

The Bad

- I wasn't bothered by it, but some may find the short daily walk and MRT ride to and from the hotel a little tiresome.
- Due to its hybrid setup, it's not the best place to meet people and make new friends.
- Plain rooms. Lots of Ikea furnishings.
- Some private rooms don't have windows.

The Verdict

If you're on a tight budget but require a few more home comforts for your money, this is the place for you. Ignore any concerns about the location. It's really not that far a walk and you'll be glad of the peace once you get back after being on the go all day. For the money, you could only really expect the hotel to be clean and comfortable. It is, yet you also get free wifi, free breakfast, a funky common room and rooftop terrace to hangout in, helpful staff on call 24 hours a day, big, airy rooms with air-con, laundry facilities and even bikes to hire. What's not to like? Book far enough ahead, and you could bag yourself one of the biggest bargains Singapore has to offer.

Room Tip: Some rooms come without windows. Worth considering whether that matters to you when you book.

We stayed at Mt Emily after relaxed and lavish stay in Malaysia and Singapore earlier. As we have planned whole day of sight-seeing and also Santosa Island for couple of days, we were looking for a no frills but clean and nice hotel / hostel which is convenient for commuting with no big hole in pockets.

The location is not as great as something right on Orchid Road or CBD but in a nice and peaceful residential area with Little India MRT is few steps away ( one needs to take short route to reach MRT through the garden opposite of Mt. Emily - don't worry, the reception is very efficient and they will guide you for the first time). While I have been to Singapore many times before, this was the first time we used MRT extensively, and I have to say that it works perfectly well. Though the cabs are easily available in Singapore if you are tired or coming back in the late night to hotel.

The room was nice and clean. A bit smaller but that was expected. Bathroom too was clean and nice with good shower. While we didn't specifically ask for the room with window, we got the one with window overlooking the adjunct Mt Emily Park.

Breakfast was simple but nice - the arrangements in breakfast area were good too.

Mt Emily gets full marks on efficient and helpful staff. The front desk lady helped us plan our sightseeing and also helped us to book the coach to visit Zoo and Night Safari.

All in all, nice and value for money place but with no frills.

You found the best hostel with shared dorms in Singapore if not one of the best in the world. It is not only me saying this but some others I met here.
No bunk beds but single ones separated by a wardrobe with a locker for your own things. So you have some privacy compared to the regular shared dorms. Personally I did not like the very coolish air condition so much.
The facilities are spacious, very good and clean. The rooftop (7th floor) allows for chilling and has a great view downtown.
The location is good and quite.
Staff is always helpful and friendly.
Once I looked for alternatives in Singapore (I had a cold and the air condition wasn't helpful). None gets near to the hangout standard. I preferred checking in back.
When in Singapore this is my place.

Room Tip: The beds in the dorm are affected differently by the air condition. See which suits you best: coolis...
