The title sounds terrible. This is because we requested for a 8 bed room for our group as mentioned in the website, either 8 or 10. So the personnel who replied me, promised to give the 8 bed room for my group, as we had 8 people. And because we have girls in the group, we really do not wish... More

My daughter & her boyfriend have been backpacking in Asia since early October and won't be back home until next summer. Our problem: How to get a Christmas present to them while they're constantly moving around. Solution: The extremely helpful & obliging staff at the Checkers Backpackers told me to send the parcel there, and they'll look after it until... More

Good place to stay for a short trip despite you will be going out early in the morning and come back late night. Air conditioned room, clean bathroom/toilet. 3 mins walk to Little India MRT station. Friendly people/customer service

I stayed here for four nights in November 2013. The staff was super nice. They let me check in after one night of stay because I didn't have cash on me. (They only accept cash as payment) Not a spectacular breakfast, but enough to boost you out of bed, and it is available until 11:00 am! The rooms and common... More

I've debated whether I should share my experience here, but in the interest of providing travellers with more information so they can make more informed choices on accommodation here in Singapore, here goes (I stayed here Nov 1-7): PROS: Great locality, it's near Little India MRT.

Inexpensive and clean, who would have thought I'll enjoy my stay in Singapore in a backpackers inn? Will definitely go back in this place to stay. The staff are very friendly and the place is very safe. Located in Little India, this place is very accessible.
