I traveled a year ago in this hostel with my friend. We booked a 6 persons bedroom for few night. It was clean and good situation (close to the train station, shops...) The emergency fire alarm was on two times, the first time at 5am so a good wake up to go outside. Expect that problem the trip was good.

I only stayed here for 1 night while i was passing through Singapore. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was clean and i had an entire 8 share dorm to myself. The location is absolutely superb, just a minute or 2 walk from Clarke Quay. I would definitely stay again.

I traveled to Singapore with my friends. We stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. The hostel is easy to find and nearby public transportation. We stayed in 1 room for 6 people. The hostel is clean, the staff are nice and helpful. But unfortunately, there's only one bathroom that available. So we have to wait for others. Overall, we... More

They have two desktops computers available in the reception area free for everyone to use and high speed WiFi available in all floors and rooms. Free coffee all day and free breakfast.... More

It almost 2 years ago stayed there. Good location. Near to MRT Station and Central Mall. Clean bedroom & share bathroom. Breads, teas, and coffees 're the breakfast menu. And you'll receive cute keychain gift when you check out.

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
