Stayed over for a night. The inn was full then, as it was a Friday night but I was lucky enough to get the last vacant bed. When I first entered, I was shocked to see the space. Dozens of bunk beds filled the entire floor. Instead of wall partitions to separate 4 bed dorm rooms, cloth were used instead.... More

I stayed here for Aug. 1-3 2016. What I like most is the free use of water dispenser, refrigerator, hair blower, kitchen utensils etc. It's like a college dormitory. The wifi is very good. The people here are accommodating. There is an adjacent restaurant that is owned by the hostel. What I don't like is the lack of privacy in... More

Singapore is expensive on a backpackers budget and we were pleasantly surprised by the backpackers inn, just outside the main china town (by one street). Rooms were very basic but just what you would need to sleep, the place had a kitchen with fridge and cooking are if you needed to cook some basic noodles or anything relatively simple. It... More

The private room that is shown online is not private at all! You can hear the people next room talking and the loud bangs of the door can wake you up! It has an AC, the bed is okay but NO WINDOW! and the karaoke bar downstairs can be heard blasting from that so called private room. There's only ONE... More

It was my first hostel ever and my first visit to Singapore. I paid US$80 for 3D2N+the return tickets!!!! Isn't that wow? N I was surprised to see bunkbeds! Each bed is covered by a simple curtain, no privacy, but you can put your belongings in lockers provided. Yes... Surprisingly, although the place is cramped with whole bunch of people... More

It has everything you need, which for me is just a bed, bathroom and storage locker, but also a fridge, washing machine and a small kitchen. It's in a great location in Chinatown close to the subway and within 20 minutes' walk of Clarke Quay and Marina Bay. The price is obviously a bonus, too. But it's very cramped, with... More

We booked for double private room, but when we get there, the double rooms are in renovation. So they gave us private room with triple bed (bunk) instead, since we brought our son. The staff are very helpful. Worth the budget and good location too. Near the famous street of Chinatown. Near mosque also, for moslem visitors. Also near the... More

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.
