"Hi everybody who read this. I’m glad to be in Singapore, in the real local Singapore. I’m Spanish guy and I feel here like at home. It’s impressive how far I’m from home and how many resemblances (inner ones) join us. I believe in a world without borders or religions, where human respect and love rules. That way we will be closer than never, even though the distance was far, and we’ll help and collaborate each other as well as we will be respectful with the natural environment. Regards to everybody, specially to Yang. "

-Tim, London, England(01-03 Jul 2005)

"Well, when we arrived I was shattered. We hadn’t prior booked and just turned up (with the heaviest pack ever). Yang was surprised to see us but pleasured --- We came straight in. The place felt so homely, we were so lucky. Yang told us everything we need to know. A comfy bed, fresh running water and a great host --- We couldn’t have asked for more! Wednesday night came and Yang took us out for DURIAN! Not the most pleasant experience of my life but the waffle with Kaya jam soon made up for it. Yang, you have been fab and hostel one66 is really a special place. Will be seeing you in 6 weeks after Borneo so you can hear all about it!"

"Dear Yang, the website full of praise still did not live up to the wonderful reality! We are so lucky to come here on our 1st stop of our trip because you were so welcoming, kind & full of advice. However we are also unlucky because after Hostel 166, nowhere else will compare! I love your quirky style --- The clocks, drain pipe lockers, toilet seat (not sure of the croc though). It was a pleasure to meet you. There should be more people like you in world. Good luck with the baby."
- Laura, England(14-15 June 2005)

"Thank you so much the stay at your hostel and your hospitality. For advising us on where to go and showing us some of the local food specialities, introducing me to durian. The hostel is amazing, I ‘ve never seen anything like it. I want to live here, I’m so sad that I am only staying one day. Good luck with the baby."

- Daniel, Indonesia (10 - 15 April 2005)

"On Yang! Thank you so very much for everything. We’re so please we stayed an extra night so you could show us the wetlands reserve. It was beautiful and really made the end of our stay in Singapore special. We’ll will never forget the monitor lizards (especially the massive one that was so close by!) and the koi … though I doubt I’ll ever be brave enough to let one suck my fingers!!. Keep doing what you are doing Yang. This hostel is fabulous and your generosity and warmth are so refreshing-given how impersonal some hostels can be. We will miss you."

(And I learnt to use to use the chopsticks!). You really make our stay in Singapore. Thanks again, the hostel is really funky + all the recycling, Well see you next month!"
- Amber, New Zealand (25 - 26 October 2004)

"Kia Ora Yang and Mrs J. I can’t believe we made such a good choice hostel-wise. I’ve become so used to hosteliers being impersonal, so to have your personal approach to both your hostel and guests was a welcome change! If our stay in Singapore was anything to go by, then this trip through S.E Asia will be a success. Special thanks for the yummy chicken rice intro and just in case you ‘re not sure who I am, I am the KIWI who took the durian challenge & passed with flying colours! Will even have it again. See you later in our travels."

- Julien and Cecile, France (21 - 22 April 2004)

Perfect spot with great local food. Only passing through (this time). But shall be spreading the word and encourage others to stay here longer. Yang have erected an intimate - different and welcoming place. Cheers. Glad I found it."

"The first guest to pass through the door of Hotel One66!!. You have a fantastic place, keep up the good work and all the best for the future."
- Jon Casey, UK (26 - 28 March 2004)

- Natalie Adams, UK (26 - 28 March 2004)

"3rd guest. Gosh. I always came third in this hostel :)! 2 guess the first few will be remembered most lot. Anyway for the record, I suppose to come first but due to Yang's fault in the logistics ( kidding, he was brilliant!! Love you mate). I actually wondered around the beautiful city of Singapore and lost track of the time, so that's why I came THIRD.....hahaha. Though a small hostel, it is made up by the warm hospitality of the proprietor, hence rivalled the other 5 Star hotels :)"
- Justin D Siap, Sabah, Malaysia (26 - 28 March 2004)

"4th guest in this spot. Had a great time. Good food, just across th street, wonderful park with small lake in just 10 minutes, on foot. Last but not least Yang as th great Host. Thanks and good luck. See you in Sept 04."
