I am Elizabeth from Singapore.
Looking forward to hosting you in our lovely little sunny island.
Elizabeth was out of the country when I arrived. She had set up a friend to let me in, but unfortunately his cell wasn't working, so I spent some time at the airport til it got worked out. The room was comfortable w/good aircon, which was nice in the hot weather. It is close to the MRT, but does require a walk up stairs to cross an overpass. She let me leave my suitcase the last day & come back for a shower before my evening flight, which was very kind. Overall, it was a good place to stay.
very peaceful..great location, clean room. 24 hour supermarket just across the road.Few minutes walk to Newton MRT . Definitely stay there again. Highly recommended.
The most terrible travel experience in my life. The room and whole house are way older than shown on the pics. Dirty and smell in the house, bedroom full of dust from under the bed and behind the blue curtain where owner store all her belonging.
We were not being informed about sharing the house with 3-4 other guests who we never known before and that all 5-6 people had to share only 1 toilet!
Our room could not be locked from outside and imagine we had to share the whole house with other 4 strangers.
Owner was not in the house and we was informed about this obly few days before arrival.
Toilet and shower get dirty since the first day we arrived and yet no one cleaned it. I had to clean the shower to get rid of pile of vomit or something similar before I could take shower on the 3rd night.
The worst part and made us moved out the house at 1 am on the 3rd night (we booked for 5 nights) was that we found so many bedbugs all over the bed!!!
The owner refund us from the 3rd night and appologized. But this is not worth our time and money at all. We were having difficult time finding the hotel at 1 am and didnt get to sleep the rest of the night. The bedbugs are still haunted us since we are afraid they might attach to our belonging and back to our own house.
One of the most difficult bugs to get rid of.
I dont understand how other people have reviewed this place so positive but for me it was nightmare.
We had great time staying at Elisabeth's. The room is comfortable and nice. We didn't meet any hosts during our stay. But we talked sometime through the phone. Elisabeth and Rene are very helpful. I'd like to stay at Elisabeth's room again. Thank you for hosting us!:)
We would recommend that you only stay here if you are familiar with Singapore and are just wanting somewhere convenient for the centre of the city. The accommodation is very basic and comparable with the sort of room you would find in a hostel.
Elizabeth's place was a basic room in a good location for exploring Singapore. Newton MRT station is about a 10 minute walk away, and from there it's easy to get anywhere in the city. Newton Food Centre is about a 5 minute walk away and highly recommended for food. Elizabeth was away on a long trip when we stayed so we didn't benefit from the in-person hosting that has been so positively reviewed, though she was available via AirBnB messaging. It's a small room with basic bathroom and washing machine facilities.
We never saw any host. Elisabeth hasn't been there for months and will not be there for months to come (according to info received by phone, after arrival). We spoke to a person on the phone from the airport who told us the key would be under the mat, together with keys for other guests. The place was quite filthy: dirty shoes in the sink, empty wine bottles in the room; holes in the sheets, and everything covered with grime. We decided we certainly couldn't cook there. It appears that this is simply a boarding house - 5 people stayed while we were there - 2 checked out early and none of us ever saw a host.
The spirit of airbnb - to stay with local families who provide local knowledge certainly was absent.
The location is about 15 min walk from the MRT (subway), but one has to cross busy highways. Once on the MRT everything is easily reachable.
Of our many airbnb experiences, this was the only serious disappointment. I would not stay here again and can't recommend it to anyone.
It's my first experience to use airbnb, and it's really interesting. Elizabeth's house is near to Newton MRT and Bus station, very convenient to downtown. The bed is nice to sleep, i have nice dream all the nights.
Mz yee is a very nice person.We arrived at a midnight,though she waiting (website hidden)`s a pity we have no time to chat more, for staying there only three nights
Elizabeth was a very welcoming and hospitable host and we enjoyed our stay. We were in the room depicted in the photos, and whilst comfortable it no longer looks quite like the photos! We were also surprised to find three other guests although it was good to meet them and that is what AirBnb is about. The bathroom facilities were very poor and in our experience not up to the standard we expected from previous AirBnb. However, the location is very convenient for the city
