The Hostelz.com Review - Genuine, independent review you can trust.
Dream Lodge in Singapore is an excellent little hostel, located close to public transport, as well as a few markets and a mall.
While the hostel is not located in one of the more popular, touristy locations, it is conveniently located near an MRT station. This makes it easily accessible from the airport, as well as the Marina Bay area. There is street parking available, however renting a car in Singapore is prohibitively expensive, and public transport as well as ride services such as Grab provide better options.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The dorm rooms are very clean and modern. The beds are not actual bunk beds, but rather individual pods in which mattresses are placed. They are thus very sturdy and there is no risk of disturbing other guests while getting in and out of bed. The pods are closed with curtains, which give privacy, and the bedding is very comfortable and clean. Each pod has a little lamp, as well as outlets for charging electronics.
There are both fans and air conditioning in the rooms, which ensure that you'll get a good night's sleep, even in the worst of the Singapore summer.
The bathrooms are modern and are kept clean and in good shape. Each one is a little individual washroom, with a toilet, sink, and a shower area. The water pressure is good and there is plenty of room to store your clothes away while taking a shower.
There is a common space on the ground floor, with several tables, a TV, and a little kitchen area. While we visited the hostel, there were not many people using it outside of the breakfast time or while checking in or out. It is however a welcoming area, and the lack of people with which to socialize might have only been dependent on the guests staying at that time, not the atmosphere of the hostel.
Dream Lodge is a small, quiet hostel in SIngapore that is perfect for a few nights' sleep. It is not a very social hostel, so it may be a little difficult to meet people; however, if you only need a good bed in a clean room in an easily accessible area of town, it's perfect.
