Worthy backpacker hostel
Booked here for my group of 16 people (11 + 1 family of 5). They managed to get the 11 people in the same room which was very nice. Friendly staff. We can use the microwave to do light cooking, preheat food, etc. Water for refill is also available and free breakfast from 6 - 12! WiFi was good and fast. The location is central, very near 2 bus stops and a Seven Eleven. 10 minutes walk from Boon Keng MRT.
