I would recommend this hostel to anyone who visits SG. The location is perfect, the beds are comfortable and the owner Andrew is very nice. The hostel even has a working AC and the shower is the best I I've seen this month ;) For backpackers this is the ideal place to stay.

The one hostel is in Chinatown the other one which has the same name (same owner) is just a few waking minutes away. The hostel itself is clean and easy. For travellers who want to live lowbudged or don't need much extras it's totally enough and the price is the best one you'll get in ttown. The owner is very... More

Nice hostel but very basic and can be load if there are lots of people. The breakfast and free wifi were good. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location near Chinatown and the MRT was very convenient and everything was a short walk away.

Just only cheap hostel with supreme location next to outrampark MRT 2-5 min walkaway. I stay on a share room for 10 ppl. The sheet just so so. The toilet was very small, but still ok for me. But the cleanliness of the toilet was so bad. Breakfast just so so, but they have their own restaurant for breakfast.

Don't come in here expecting more than a place to sleep at night, take a shower in the morning and continue your tourist experience in the city, after a delicious, but definitely basic, breakfast. The beds are bunkbed style, and I was most impressed by the security setup, whereby there was a security code to enter, and spacious lockers to... More

Myself and 2 other backpackers passed through Singapore, with the intentions of staying only 1 day. After a long day of airports, traveling, and hauling heavy baggage, we finally arrived at Service World Backpacker Hostel. Because our flight left at 7am the following morning, we didn't need a place to sleep. We just needed a place to set our bags... More
