Positive Reviews

Central location puts you close to attractions.

Stay at Royal Hostel and you'll be slap bang in the middle of Singapore. You're 300 metres from the nearest train station that will connect you to anywhere in the city, and you're also within easy walking distance of Singapore River.

The knowledgeable staff are helpful and chatty.

The people working here are young and energetic, being very proactive when it comes to solving problems in the hostel. They're also happy to talk about all the great things to do in Singapore.

Affordable hostel that's perfect for backpackers.

This is a dormitory hostel, so no private rooms here, but the beds are one of the cheapest available accommodation options in the city. If you are backpacking or just need a cheap place to stay this is the place for you.

Negative Reviews

The breakfast is limited and not very tasty.

Free breakfast is included in the room rate, but don't expect too much. It pretty much boils down to a piece of toast or two with a cup of coffee or tea. If you want a more substantial morning meal check out the great restaurants and cafes nearby.

The shared bathrooms here can get busy and dirty.

Everyone staying here has to use the shared bathrooms, so it's not surprising that these get dirty very quickly. Don't expect sparkling tile floors and everything to be dry, also be prepared to wait your turn.

Noise at night can make it hard for you to sleep.

Royal Hostel is located in a busy area of the city and the noise generated by people, traffic and businesses can last long into the night. Combine this with other guests coming and going from the dormitory room and it's possible you'll have a bad night's sleep.
