I along with my friends (all of us girls) were visiting Singapore for a small and fun trip. Our excitement ended even before the trip began when I messaged the host for confirming our stay with her. Less than 12 hours before we were to reach Singapore, the host cancelled our stay for reasons such as authority issues for illegal renting out of the apartment. After several unattended calls and messages, she offered to host us at her place "at her own risk". The next day, on reaching Singapore, the host again did not respond to our calls. After 3 hours of trying she finally did receive our call, and postponed our checkin close to 2-3 hours late (so much for flexible checkin!!!).
When we finally checked in, in less than half a day's time, we noticed that the apartment was extremely unhygienic and unclean. The floors and couches were very dusty which led to one of my friend's spoiling her health cause of extreme dust allergy.
Soon after we noticed that the apartment did not have facilities such as toaster, and had a broken washing machine. Service fee was wrongly taken as the host's helper did not bother cleaning the apartment even once during our 5 day stay.
The host was extremely unwelcoming and did not bother making sure if we had checked in properly.
After 2 days of our stay in the apartment, it was observed that the apartment had lot of big cockroaches in the house. The host after several appeals sent in her helper to disinfect the house, after which there was still no effect and there were many more cockroaches in the house.
I am extremely displeased with the apartment and even more so with the host who made no attempt to help us out in any fashion. Location of the apartment was also unsettling as it is located in an unhygienic spot.
I would not recommend this apartment and host to anyone visiting Singapore.
