The location of the hotel is great as it's just few steps away from Chinatown MRT. Each of us was given a phone ( It's free and we'll have to return them during checkout ) upon arrival and it saved us from spending extra money on buying Singapore's phone card. We can travel around Singapore with the phone and make... More

We stayed at the hotel for 4 days and we find the place livable. Small room but the location is perfect. Since ith just right infront of the market, you can easily buy staffs like t-shirts, key chain and other "pasalubong" or a present in Filipino word in a very affordable price. The breakfast is a let down. They offered... More

We reserved for 7 rooms. Our rooms are located at the opposite building from the office. The smell of our rooms are very poor. The size of room are very small. Air conditioner of some rooms doesn't work well. The terrace for breakfast doesn't look like picture in tripadvisor. Location is great.

In the heart of chinatown and in front of MTR (metro station) of chinatown -blue line-. The location of the hostel is very good. We shared a 2 bed room, and we got 2 local mobile phones to move around. I would rexommend it for backpackers and if you'll be in the city for 1-2 days.

We booked for one nights stay here and we're not impressed with much about this place. The only big plus was the location, right near the underground system and in the heart of China Town. We booked a private two bed dorm, which was on the second floor. The room consisted of an old wooden bunk bed and a locker.... More

Stayed in this hostel last November 2015 and my stay is memorable. The counter staffs are friendly and they let us leave our bags while we wait for our check in time.

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.

Located at historic Chinatown, right by the MRT station, we are extremely well connected and within walking distance to many attractions in Chinatown, Little India, Clarke Quay, Boat Quay, museums etc. You will be glad you chose Chinatown as you spend very little time and money on traveling..
