    We booked the family room! Comes with TWO toilets and a shower! This was a phenomenal stay, the hostel was decorated beautifully. Very cozy and friendly owner!

    I really wish I could not give a good review so that I can keep this place to myself and not have to share it with others. But it would be doing Kars & team a complete disservice by not promoting his place. The coffee here is on point, the rooms...

    Location in Chinatown. About 14 mins walk to the MRT station. Staff also very accommodating with our past midnight arrival.
