Worst staycation I ever had , it a disaster ”

The room is so small , the voice from the walkway and back alley is SO LOUD. the back alley is all the pub area and they sing and party till 5am. So we could only sleep at 5am. The room light and aircon keep off and on I believe it the room card reader failed that why keep off and on the whole night. The bath towel is dirty as well. Could say with this money spend believe we can find a better offer.

Great as a homebase in exploring Singapore”

First, note that Google Maps is wrong - the closest MRT is not Jalan Besar stn, but Rochor stn. Second, the hostel room is great, big & very comfy bed - but the door lock is rather flimsy. My daughters used their luggage as the door barricade at night. Third, the balcony room is as advertised, but at night you can hear people chatting outside, turned out next door is a bar, and one time it blasts loud indian music until 1 am. We slept like dead due to extreme tiredness from exploring the city all day, but others might not. You might want to ask for other room instead , for example the sound from outside does not reach the hostel rooms.

Did not live up to what is marketed.”

Genuinely wished i had better things to say about the place. Perhaps it was due to the pandemic and lower footfall (idk), the place was badly maintained. Maintenance ongoing and disruptive to stay, since place is small, you hear everything. Room is unclean, marks on the wall, and it is peeling. Rust on metal fixtures especially in toilet area. Had cause to worry the day before book-in because I writing in to their guest relations email and it bounced. Contact numbers were unavailable, found out that their website's reservation system is down, and their online social media seemed inactive. Turns out still operating. Front-door staff was friendly, that I can say. And it is definitely a well-designed establishment. But looks can only get you so far. Genuinely hope this is a period of adjustment for Great Madras. You've got a beautiful brand, but please clean up the rooms.

Room was apparently not made before check-in. Found a used towel beside the wash basin upon entering the room, and a few stains on the bedsheet. Didn’t bother reporting to the staff since I’m just staying for a night. I know stay-in rate isn’t high during the pandemic, but it shouldn’t be the way guests are treated. Sorry, I’ll never return again.
