    I gave 1 star because I couldn’t give less. The only good thing was one lady who was friendly and helpfull. The breakfast was poor but I wasn’t expecting a feast for the money I payed. when we arrived at our bedroom a lady pointed to a bunk bed, clearly it had been used by someone, you could tell by the old sheets and told me that was my bunk bed. Of course I said I wouldn’t sleep there and she gave us another bunker beds! But the attitude was just wrong and bad! She acted as if she was doing us a favour… The hostel dormitories are so filthy and old plus it has one dirty bathroom for about 20 people to use… Only 2 toilets and 2 showers for all this people. We weren’t allowed to use our shoes, meaning we had to walk barefoot in that nasty floors. To get to our room we had to walk through the bathroom barefoot. There were some old and dirty slippers on the bathroom for all the people to use, since you aren’t allowed to use your shoes in there.

    During the MCO period from 18/3/20 to 24/6/20, I lived for more than three months. The environment is clean and tidy. The servers are nice and polite. There is a free breakfast in the morning, and there is also a laundry service, which can be discounted for me. Thank you waiter for making me feel at home during MCO

    Man…. the whole night, we were being terrorized and bitten by those little vampires. Those creatures were also tried to sneak in to our luggages.
    I mean, they were A LOT OF THEM.
    Bedsheets were dirty.
    Bathrooms were dirty.
    Cleanliness is really poor.
    They made an excuse saying that some people have different allergies. We had the proof.
    Yup… I know it’s cheap, but we paid with the money that we earned from our hard work.
    At least, understanding is needed.

    The problem with the bedroom is that the beds may be too close together, and if you are a light sleeper this can be a problem, I recommend that you use noise plugs and light shades. The air conditioning to all milk.

    nice place to stay with low budget, but in mix 24 bunkbed room you must go to 2nd or 3rd floor.
    what disappointing is theres sign to leave footwear outside but theres still people put inside room. so theres bad smell inside room. and i stay on small room which has 6 person stay in small way space so its hard to walk n put bag
    the upper bed was so close to the fan

    BUT overall the checkin was easy, receptionist always ready and no deposit. Breakfast was good with milo coffee tea and bread jam n nutella

    This place doesn’t deserve any stars.
    It’s a disgustingly filthy place
    The area next to the bed where I slept
    had not been cleaned or swept…..(.not for days, or months but Years.)
    It’s also infested with Bed bugs.
    People were leaving early in disgust.

    The foreign worker from the PH who was on duty on the morning of Monday the 15th October was possibly the rudest, most arrogant receptionist
    I have ever had the misfortune to encounter.
    In response to being told about the disgusting lack of cleanliness her reply was : ” if you don’t like it you can leave”.

    Usually, you get what you pay for. Yet in this case, I don’t think the low price justified it. There was not even a curtain to separate the private areas from the corridors (it’s usually a given, I’ve seen it at cheaper hostels). The shower room smelled of stale pee. There was no obvious signs that you should be quiet at the sleeping areas. AC was turned off at 8 AM, no big problem but could be a problem for someone not merely seeking for a cheap place to sleep in during the night. Only saving grace was how nice the staff was.

    The staff is very hospitable and accommodating. They even allow us to drink and play cards with our friends who stayed in a different hostel.
    The place is clean and comfy. The rooms for 20s was very clean coz you are not allowed to use your shoes and slippers inside the sleeping quarters.
    The common toilet and shower area is clean, and very spacious.
    They have a free breakfast – bread and spreads with coffee, tea, milo, and/or milk.
    The place’s location is near Mustafa Center too (about 5-10mins walk, just 2-3 blocks away).
    There is a bus stop about 200m away.
    And the best part is, it’s cheap for all these perks!;)

    Except for the lobby on the 1st floor, there are tables with good food

    Can recommend the hostel. I booked on the spot for 18 Sgd. one of the cheapest i found in Singapore. down side is the rooms are packed and they turn off the lights between 11 pm and 8 am. There is no way to put them back on and you have to walk with a torch. Plus is they also give you a basic breakfast. Singapore is quite pricey so thats definitely a plus.

    It should be a crime for anyone to operate a hostel with bed bugs. If you wish to sleep at night with the sensation of tiny critters crawling all over your body, wake up in the morning with you thighs, lower back, and wrists completely mauled by rows of itchy/red bites, then New Society is the hostel for you! I honestly hated to write this review as the Filipino staff at the front desk are nice, the lounge area on the first floor is decent, and the metal bunk-bed frames are sturdy/quiet, but if you can’t offer a bug-free bed, then I honestly can’t recommend this hostel. On top of this, I switched beds twice (top and bottom bunk) just to make sure it wasn’t a fluke…it wasn’t. Can’t wait to check out!

    Some of the truthful facts I saw from previous reviews: The mixed-dorm of 24 beds all share the same SMALL unisex bathroom, the lights get turned on/off by the staff at 11PM/8AM

    Some irrelevant pros: Convenient location relative to a DIY laundromat, a FairPrice supermarket, and Lavender MRT station. Honestly, the location is so irrelevant when there are 16 other hostels down this road and within the same price range that don’t appear to have bed bug issues in their reviews!

    The location is rather decent, a few minutes away from two metro stations.
    The rooms was crammed with 24 bunk beds but it was as described on the website I used to book. They have curtains dividing the room in different sections though, for that price in Singapore, you can’t really expect more privacy.
    Lockers are provided and I could easily fit my backpack in them.
    The breakfast is simple, sliced bread with jam and peanut butter, tea or coffee, but then again, you get what you pay for.

    The hostel building is just a shophouse, located at Jalan Besar 259A. A friendly receptionist will welcome us as soon as we arrive at our destination. The lobby is not too wide but comfortable enough for a place to wait or take a break after a long walk. There are several sofas and a TV downstairs. The lobby section is also attached to the breakfast area for staying guests.

    Our room is located on the 3rd floor. It consists of 24 beds neatly arranged. Each person will receive a pillow, blanket and locker key to store their belongings. The conditions inside are clean and comfortable to just lay down your tired body after walking quite a distance. On the same floor there is also a bathroom and toilet at the back of the building. But bring your own toiletries, because this is in a hostel guys, toiletries are not provided, hehe.

    The air conditioner is cold at night because the living room isn’t big enough, if you can’t stand the cold, bring a sweater to wear at night. Oh he, the price of this inn was ordered from Traveloka at a price of 170 thousand. This room is a mix of men and women. But don’t worry guys, the residents all know the rules and they are orderly and maintain cleanliness.

    Now for breakfast, it’s downstairs which is attached to the hostel lobby, guys. Breakfast here is provided with fresh bread with various jams. Drinks are available Milo, Tea and Coffee. Everything here is self service, after breakfast, clean your cutlery and put it back in its original place

    Bottom line- there will be better places for the money.

    My bunk bed sheet was dirty, I had to ask them to change. Why would you not change it knowing guests are coming is beyond me.

    -they have slippers in bathroom. I saw other hostels not having any.
    – there’s body wash

    – AC is in centre so there might be fan in your sleeping room. If you are not used to sleeping under the fan, then it’s not good for you. I wouldn’t recommend top bunk bed.

    -No rooftop terrace as mentioned( it was locked)

    Nearest MRT is jln besar, which makes it easy to navigate.

    Breakfast consists
    Bread with butter/ jam/ peanut butter/ chocolate spread

    Check in time is 2 pm,so if your flight lands early,then this is not the place for you.

    Staffs I encountered were friendly.

    Bottom line, if I am in Singapore, will I stay here again? No, there are so many I would try others.

    Now, it’s up to you to decide.
