After a 5.30am start, we arrived in Singapore at 1.30pm and are currently relaxing by the little spa pool they have on one of the levels. It would all be very tranquil were it not for the roadworks directly beside us! (See picture) Nice nonetheless. It's our last day together so we plan on spending it together. Almost. The girls are going to go up …

Der Wagen zum Flughafen war für 4:30 Uhr bestellt, leider kam er erst um 6 Uhr. Die Verspätung versuchte er durch einen Kamikaze Fahrstil wettzumachen. Das führte zu einem beinahe Frontalaufprall mit einem LKW.

Heute bin ich mit Tay Wee Leng verabredet. Wir wollen den Silvesterabend gemeinsam verbringen. Gemeinsam mit ein paar Ihrer Freunde treffen wir uns in einem Restaurant um "Steamboat" zu essen, ein Fondue das mit Brühe statt mit Fett gemacht wird. Es ist eine nette Runde, wir haben interessante Gespräche. Nach dem Essen gibt es Karaoke, zuerst denke …

After breakfast we transferred our bags to Hangout @ Mt Emily which we had prebooked in the UK. We decided to see what Orchard Road had to offer for shopping, as it read as the place to go. We weren't disappointed. There were several shopping malls and it was great to replace some clothes/get a couple of warmer items ready for Aus (Melbourne …

    Super friendly and efficient staff, all the mod cons you could wish for. Hostel is completely used to dealing with traveller's needs and were very accommodating. Our room was a bit small but clean with hot showers and quick wifi.

    Basic but all you needed was there - hot water, air conditioning, free/good internet and chill out facilities. Breakfast included which was very good. Good location, not far from nearest tube stop and about 20 mins walk into centre. No real complaints.

    Probably the best hostel I've stayed in. Brilliant staff and in a excellent location walking distance away from the underground. The dorms rooms itself are very clean and tidy with your own locker area. The roof terrace had amazing views over the city. Also the lounge area is amazing with free internet, big TV and a pool table. You get a lovely breakfast included in the price which is so much better than all the other breakfast Ive had included around the world. Its not just toast and cereal!

    If i had to say one thing I didn't like is that people hog the computers, it should be a half an hour slot so everyone could use them and book there next destination.

    But apart from that I would recommend it to anyone

    Decent accommodation even in the dorms, with a bit of privacy and lockers to store some valuables. The breakfast was also good. Free internet but unfortunately they had their USB ports blocked so I couldn't upload my pictures. Helpful staff, just like Hangout in Melaka!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hangout at Mt. Emily Singapore

    Great place!


    A great budget location in an expensive city. Clean room with modern IKEA feel. Helpfull staff, OK breakfast and a beautiful but slightl;y expensive restaurant WILD ROCKET with great food. Free internet and other good deals wrt the ZOO, TRANSFERS to AIRPORT and NIGHT SAFARI.

    Ottimo albergo


    Un ottimo albergo economico in una città costosa. Camera pulita con atmosfera moderna stile Ikea. Personale disponibile, colazione accettabile, e uno splendido (anche se un po' costoso) ristorante con mangiare ottimo, il Wild Rocket. Internet gratuito e altri buoni affari: zoo, trasferimento per l'aeroporto, e safari notturno.

    ¡Un sitio estupendo!


    Un estupendo hotel económico en una ciudad cara. La habitación estaba limpia, con muebles modernos al estilo IKEA. El personal era servicial, el desayuno no estaba mal y tiene un restaurante muy bonito pero ligeramente caro: WILD ROCKET, donde sirven una comida deliciosa. Hay conexión a Internet gratuita y otras buenas ofertas para el ZOO, TRANSPORTE al AEROPUERTO y SAFARI NOCTURNO.

    Nice but not a budget hotel


    stayed 3 nights in this little nice hotel. it's located on a hill but walkable distance to mrt stations "little india" & "dhoby ghaut". room is clean & tidy, staff are very helpful, strict security, with a nice restaurant, lounges on 2/F (can access internet) & the roof. but the rate is a bit high, u can find some cheap places located in centre at a budget rate.

    Nice cafe and garden, spartan room


    I stayed at Hangout@Emily in 2005. Perched on a quiet hill, Hangout sits amongst quiet rows of pre-war shophouses and some low-rise residences. Cold Storage supermarket is about 10 mins walk away and the nearest MRT station (Dhoby Ghaut) 15 mins walk. As Singapore is warm and humid, such walks in the afternoon are not recommended. The lobby is designed in youthful and quirky colours, staff are friendly except the big security man who visits the communal computer cum TV cum billiard room...he behaves like a army staff sergeant or school disciplinary master. The rooftop garden is also simple and yet has a certain Balinese feel...with a small pond and deck areas for sunbathing. The cafe area (next to lobby) is very white and gives the feeling that you could be somewhere in a clean Swiss motel.

    Good value considering prices in Singapore


    We stayed at Mt Emily for two nights and found it to be more than adequate.

    Accomodation in Singapore isn't cheap so it is nice to find somewhere that doesnt break the bank. Consequently it is simple but then again you dont book somewhere like this if you want in-room DVD players and a spa, do you?

    Whilst it's a little further away from the centre than most accomodation we found it still to be walkable to most places so isnt inconvenient!

    Decent, but wouldn't stay again


    This hotel isn't cheap for a budget hotel, but with the amenities offered it's reasonable enough. The lobby is nice, and the communal areas pretty well maintained, it's also kept remarkably clean. Rooms are a decent size, with a standard en suite bathroom and security is tight with the requirement of card keys to access each floor. The only problem I had with this place was the odd smell - it permeated throughout the building, even with the communal areas on the upper floors. Didn't get round to complaining to the management as I was hardly in the hotel in the first place, but it would definitely stop me from staying there again, or recommending this place to anyone.

    A great review from a singaporean


    I went to the Hangout hotel @ Mount Emily with my gf to celebrate her birthday, we took a cab there at first, and the cab driver didn't quite know the place, anyway if you are going there by a cab, just tell the driver, Mount Emily, and he will drive you up to the hill and its just up there at the end of the road next to a grand bungalow house.

    Alright, but not the best.


    My partner and i stayed for just one night from June 19 - June 20. And yes, it's true that the place looks just like the pictures in their website. But this can only be said for the exterior of the hotel, not the rooms.

    Best Budget Accomodation indeed!


    Rarely have I seen a place that ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE THE PICTURES in their website! I took some pictures of the place during my stay from March 31-April 2, 2006, and you'll notice not much difference between the pictures I took and the ones in their website. I totally enjoyed every bit of my stay there and wish I could've stayed longer.
