An oasis in Little India

Didn't really know what to expect when we booked this hostel on the internet, all we were hoping is that is was clean. As soon as we walked in and saw reception and the dorm, that box was ticked. The dorm we stayed in had 36 beds however don't let this put you off, the way the walls and beds are positioned it felt like a much smaller dorm. The huge plus was the aircon of the dorm the windows and doors are double glazed so that keeps the cold in. The bathrooms are ok, clean but not sparkly. The showers are fairly powerful and warm, however you might turn them colder as the bathrooms aren't air-conned. Security is really good if you choose to have a locker at reception ($10 deposit), otherwise your valuables are at their own risk in a 36 bed dorm! Free broadband internet and probably the best free breakfast we've had, because as well as the usual tea, coffee, toast, jam etc, they also have eggs for you to cook & it's served until midday! The nearest MRT station from the airport is Bugis, however we found if you're travelling around the city Little India station is closer. Overall the hostel is a clean, tidy, place with a nice atmosphere in an awesome location in bustling Little India.

Really not what we expected, the rooms were tiny, the beds were rock hard and the toilet leaked all the time. The TV room backs onto the kitchen and in front of the lifts so people are always walking through. The worst thing about this hostel are the plastic plates, impossible to clean and all are scratched and manky. Avoid like the plague, much much better hostels in Sydney to be found.
