8.8 out of 10

Part boutique hotel, part hostel, this four-storey shophouse combines small but comfortable and well-equipped rooms, and dorms with spotless shared bathrooms. A central location, overwhelmingly positive guest feedback, and helpful, English-speaking staff are other perks. And a virtually identical annexe next door helps with spillover as Smile Society gains more fans.
