A very clean hostel (you can walk around barefoot - and you should, otherwise the people on the floor below yours can hear you). This place is very close to Chinatown Station (closest to exit F, not E). The staff there were very friendly. There was free wifi, and the place was decorated with bears everywhere.

A clean hostel, great atmosphere and really helpful and easygoing staff. They made everything really easy, told us about everything the city had to offer, where to eat and how to move around. Also the atmosphere there with all the backpackers was amazing. Definitely would repeat.

I stayed here for 2 night. The room is quite clean. a lot of teddy bear :D. the woman's toilet is okay but for men's toilet is not really clean. I love the breakfast and the hot chocolate. Feels like home. And really near to china town's MRT. Really good place to stay in Singapore.

I stayed here in a 9 bed mixed dorm for 2 nights whilst in Singapore travelling. It's a pretty nice hostel in the respect that it's clean and the staff are nice. However, compared to other hostels I have stayed in it doesn't really compare. The beds were crammed in and uncomfortable and the breakfast was lacklustre. That said Singapore... More

Very free and easy, walk in and out as you wish, make simple drinks and toast / cereal (which are readily available), good Wifi, clean beds, lobby could be slightly less messy but people move around too much anyway. Water pressure is good but do remember to bring your own shampoo. Would recommend renting the 10SGD / 4 hours bike... More

Staff is always friendly and helpful, good location to sightseeing and opposite train station. Overnight here with my overseas friends. They like the food variety at Chinatown. Walking distance about 10 minutes to food center. Souvenir shops nearby. Cultural centre, tourism counter about 20 minutes walk away. Overall I had good experience. Friends loved it and they want to return... More

A good budgeted hostel to stay in Singapore and located in one of the famous place. Transport (MRT) is very nearby, good food around, convenient. Nice and friendly staff. Rooms & toilet are very clean too.

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.
