As most travellers are aware Singapore is not the. He's pest city's to get to or to find accommodation that doesn't agitate your budget. After a couple of days looking for somewhere to rest our heads in Singapore we finally agreed on Backpackers Chinatown, and I'm glad we did. It's very centrally located, walking distance to all the major shopping... More

Although there was a bit of miscommunication between my group and our local booking/travel agent, generally, I can recommend Backpackers' Inn. I brought in a group of 15 tourists all the way from the Tacloban City, Philippines for an Incentive Trip. The rooms fits our need - a place to stay with a decent and clean comfort rooms with very...

This was second stay since 2014. The inn extends a place to Uppercross Road. They have one room for 2 to 3 ppls, others are beds. It is a quiet room that I stayed free from daily busy life. Also, the room rate is at my budget. I changed to 27 Mosque Street for recall memory with friend last visit... More

Stayed here for three nights. Although the room wasn't spacious enough, it was clean and orderly and they provide free water. The toilets are clean, too. At night, noise from people down the road was hear but the inn is near the mrt station so it makes strolling around super easy.

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

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

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.
