Dear journal, I am glad I chose to stay at Pillows & Toast in Chinatown, Singapore. The hostel was in a convenient location, just a 3-minute walk away from Chinatown MRT. The hostel spans 3 and a half floors, and it's entrance on the ground floor made it easy to find. The staff were really friendly & cool. After a speedy check-in, they introduced the amenities of the hostel to me. My room was really safe & secure with electronic key card access & I had my own locker! There were ample shower rooms & toilets on every floor. They even provided the 3-in-1 shower gel. There were lots of hooks & racks for me to keep my clothes dry in the shower. Not to mention the nifty hair-dryer provided. Woo hoo! The shower rooms were clean & I really could go on showering forever, but... you know, I had to be considerate to others. I also loved hanging out in their cozy attic lounge with the rest, playing on the WII, and getting a leg massage on the massage chair. Imagine that! How many hostels actually have a huge attic lounge & a massage chair to boot! I simply had to upload some pictures of the hostel on Facebook & the free WIFI made it really easy to do so from the comfort of my bed. There were personal electrical sockets & reading lamps so that I won't disturb my room-mates. I loved snuggling in my bed under the cozy duvet, chatting with my friends on Facebook. And oh, the mattress was oh-so-so-comfy! The hostel also provides a tasty breakfast. I would recommend all my friends to try their kaya toast, which will leave you yearning for more. :) It was such a breeze getting around Singapore with the MRT close by. I can't wait to go back to Pillows & Toast again. The cozy hostel with the orange & white sign board located at No. 40 Mosque Street, Chinatown, Singapore. XOXO ***
