10 Good Reasons Why You Should Stay with G4 Station
Hi I’m Benson, your hitman and general consultant in G4 Station. You usually see me popping by during the day or the night or even hanging behind Backyard Bistro chilling out.
Now why should you really stay with us at G4 Station? There’re really like 99 reasons to go about with but I’ll truncate it and just list out 10. *Hmm
1. We’re Very New and Affordable
Though Leo mentioned we’re 2 months old off the soft launch and official opening, our furnitures and fixtures alongside with our facilities are very, very new. Walk in, have a whiff of our beds and cupboards and you’ll get what I really mean.
And according to Waren on his previous blog entry, we’ve just revised the price for a promo during the peak period in December, talking about affordability! This is a good chance that if you’re transiting from a hotel to a hostel, you could try us. I’m sure you’d have no problems and who knows you might grow to like us more 😉
2. Our Location is Pretty Ace
Forgive me other hostel friends, we’ve done our homework before we decide on this location and analysed it for long before opening this joint. G4 Station is just maximum 3 minutes away from Little India MRT Station (MRT is Singapore’s very own subway), in the middle of almost all 3 MRT Stations namely Bugis, Little India and Dhoby Gaut.
So you’re very much almost in the middle of everywhere within really short distance, walkable to Orchard, Bugis, a subway stop away from Clarke Quay and much much more spots.
3. We’re Almost Really Squeaky Clean 24/7
Forgive me if it isn’t after 10pm, but we have our two permanent staffs, Lixing and Ah Thiak who works diligently from morning till evening to make sure your beds, your bathrooms and your linens are well taken care of.
They’re really helpful and won’t hesitate to help you with your luggage upstairs even!
4. Free Internet PC Stations & WIFI Enabled.. BEDS!
During the planning phase of the premises, we’ve set aside almost 10% allotment of PCs for our guests to use.. free of charge. So what happens is that we have 8 stations which allows our guests to do video conferencing, Skype or whatever they wish.
All computers are well taken care of and we requests that all our guests sanitise their hands before using the keyboards and mouse for hygiene purposes.
And if that’s not enough, our beds are WIFI enabled (pun intended) from the bottom all the way to the top on the 5th floor!
5. We Have Nintendo Wii!
Uhm. Bowling, Baseball and Tennis at our hostel? Yes, it’s all virtually possible with Nintendo Wii.
6. Helpful Staffs
During the interview process of getting our staffs, we had them screened really carefully. We had them on lie detectors, kinda like those variety TV show ‘Moment of Truth’. So here you go, we have plentiful helpful receptionists who’re on 24 hours standby and understands English perfectly like Waren, Leo, Joyce, Benson, Sidi and John.
Well sometimes they’re just being too helpful and joins in any kind of fun that guests are having (Like punching guests on boxing games with Nintendo Wii..)
7. Movie Screenings
I wouldn’t say we have the best collection in terms of movies, but hey, we have a comfy 42 inch LCD TV mounted with a Asus E*PC. So you can watch youtube videos anytime too. Also take note that we have a really cosy rooftop terrace on the top floor which is perfect for socialising, booze and watching TV too.
8. In-house Shower Gel and Hot/ Cold Shower! Really Safe Environment
Hmm, nothing to boast about, but our Lavender 2-in-1 shampoo and showergel is smells pretty good if you forget to bring yours. Also our hot/cold shower is 24/7 on for your enjoyment 🙂
I’d like to reiterate on the safe environment because it has got nothing, absolutely nothing to do with the cameras I’m going to mention. We have a total of 25 wired cameras pin-pointing all angles of the premises apart from the shower rooms.
In case anything happens, with a press of a red button, the Singapore SWAT team will be activated.
9. Backyard Bistro Screens Soccer and Sells Booze
Ah you should look at our Bistro. They sell good beer at affordable price. Currently they’re working on price discounts for our in-house guests too but that will have to wait since they’re newly opened (Just 2 weeks old). We have them serving everyone breakfast too!
And they have cable TV for soccer channels, so if you’re a fan of sports like the Formula One, Barclay’s Premier League (The Former EPL) or La Liga, head down behind for their projector screening of the matches!
You have pool table to play too if you’re bored.
10. We Listen
At G4 Station, we listen. That’s why we insist on guests filling our feedback forms so we could work and improve on the stay and experience with us. Of course, things like having a lift and double glazed windows would take sometime, but it’ll come.. (I hope :P)
Though it’s becoming more like a hotel, but we reckon this should be the segment that we’re hitting on. Giving our guests the ace experience, that’s why we brand ourselves as ‘Your Premium Backpackers’ Inn‘ There are really many more reasons but I’ll stop here in case people starts complaining.
So hopefully there isn’t any hestitation now from you to start booking with us for your next trip to Singapore. Seeya and hope you’d holla me when you see me!
