Nice and friendly staff who was willing to rearrange the room so that we were able to stay in one room. Reasonable price. Towels are provided. Soap and hot water are available in 4 clean shower rooms (at Mosque St 30A).

Nice room and place in Chinatown, also close to 2 famous food court in Singapore, plus they have a club right down stair. To me their room worth the price, the only minus point is the bed is too loudsy when you sit down or stand up.

Well located, in the middle of Chinatown. The shared bathroom is clean and the staff friendly. Maybe it's quite expensive if you consider the room and the services of the hostel. I think it is an average hotel/hostel in Singapore.

Clean room and toilet, near to all Singapore attractions, Great service. MRT is just five minutes walk away. Very near to Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay, Clarke Quay, Sentosa Island and Orchard Malls. Try and visit National Parks, its fantastic.

The most important thing about this hostel is the price : cheap. The rest is quite okay, not bad, not great. Not a lot of confort but the minimal required (towels, lockers, showers, wifi and toilets). Well situated in a nice area, easy to find, if you're here to visit Singapour and you want to spend less money as possible... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
