Fernloft KL @ Chinatown
Singaporean standards, at a price
60A Jalan Hang Kasturi T: (03) 2022 0688
This place is a Singapore outpost of a small chain of hostels, so it should come as no surprise that it is both super clean and well-organised.
The bulk of the accommodation is dorms, which range from reasonable to overpriced, depending on the number of beds to the room. If you're OK sharing with 23 other people, then it's not a bad deal. But if you want something a bit less like a scout camp, you have to pay for the privilege. As for the private rooms, far better value can be had nearby. On the plus side, the rooftop garden is a real winner, security is taken very seriously, and the lockers are large. Rates include a simple breakfast and WiFi, but not towels.
