"Raise the Bar"

We adhere to the bartender’s code, where businessmen can drop their briefcases in exchange for art, concocted drinks, and comfort. We connect them with other business travellers and prepare them for challenges ahead.

"Bring Back More"

We started with the vision of transforming Singapore’s backpacker scene. We still hold that vision, but with something more. We received numerous awards, all of which motivated us to do more for our guests, and therefore today, we aspire to provide the best budget accommodation you can ever expect.
