This hotel located in great location. Only few minutes walking distance to Clarke Quay MRT and Boot Quay. The rate is cheap (dormitory with 8 beds). Has one toilet and bathroom (shower) shared. No hot water provided. The wifi is good and it has two PC Internet stations. The bed is not so comfortable for me and the staffs are... More

I like the location of City Backpackers. It is quiet and close to Clark Quay MRT. It is also close to a mall and good eating places, as well as the night life at the Riverside. The staff are very helpful and nice to their customers. A little caution though, there is no elevator and you need to take the... More

The hostel was in a great location (5-minute walk to Clarke Quay and the metro stop). I've stayed there twice and both times I had good experiences. The rooms are clean, they have computers for guests to use, they offer some breakfasty things in the morning. The bathrooms are adequate-- pretty much on-par with other hostels of that price range.... More

The staff at the front desk were friendly and the room we had was good for 2 people (there was air con and a balcony and even a telly-which we never turned on). The hostel is in a great location right near the river and all it's bars. Chinatown is also very short walk and the best place to go... More

Handy location to downtown Singapore and nearby mrt. Bathroom facilities in desperate need of regular cleaning. Room and beds are fine had a good sleep apart from midnight when hostel showed a couple into our room and they didn't even stay. Staff not very friendly. Plus for us was staying in dorm room and no one else in it!

this backpackers is by far the worst one ive stayed in, the room never locked here was a dirty old mattress lying in the corridor and fag butts all around. We was only given a small blanket with holes in so it was cold at night as the aircon is on full, when we went to check out at 11am... More

I vote for its great location. It took us 10 minutes to walk from hostel to Marina Bay and Raffle Places, easy access to MRT and malls. The room was clean and mattress was comfortable enough. But restroom was just so so. The worst point that screwed up my trip was the unfriendly staff. The old man at front desk... More

We stayed on the top floor of this hostel in a dorm room. Big mistake. Although the rooms were clean and comfortable, the bathroom had serious hygene issues with pigeons nesting in the roof. This made it very smelly and dirty with feathers covering the floor. The showers were mouldy and the toilet was not much better. The breakfast facilities... More
