    You guys can check out Desk Next Door at block 416 ang mo kio. Tried studying there before for my exams, really super conducive and affordable. Free wifi, charging point and water dispenser, the best thing is that there are a lot of feed centres nearby the place and you can even stop the hours when you go for breaks. if I am not wrong the website is desknextdoor.com
