There are nine rooms in the hostel.  Each are designed by local artists with a different Singaporean cultural icon, such as the Vanda Miss Joaquim, Pick-Up Sticks and Chapteh.  The explanations of each team accompanying the wall murals in each room is a quick way to understand some of the elements of local culture.

Beds start at S$30 per night.  Creature comforts accompany the budget accommodations.  You’ll get firm pillows, warm quilts, individual reading lights at each bed, top grade 8-inch orthopaedic and anti-dustmite spring mattresses.

What’s more, Nasi Lemak breakfasts are offered on certain days of the week to guests.  The hostel is customising tours such as visits to hawker centres, public housing estates and nearby islands for its guests.

Guests are also entitled to exclusive deals and discounts at tourist attractions, spas and F&B outlets such as Duck Tours, Mint Museum and Feetpress.
