My husband and I stayed for 5 nights in a private room. At first we didnt like the look of the place: the common area is really tiny and just the one bathroom for all guests. But in the end we really enjoyed our stay and felt really looked after by Aini who manages to do everything that needs doing all by herself (even had time to invite us for dinner!). Breakfast is good; just tea/coffee and toast. And there is a washing mashine that you can use for about 6 SGD.

Location is great! Right next to Chinatown and a beautiful Buddhist temple. Across the street is a huge hawker centre with great food.
But at night its all quiet so you get a good nights sleep.

Overall, a cozy place with a nice backpacker feeling!

Aunty Ainie (appologize if misspelled) is a wonderful lady running this cozy hostel, she is very thoughtful and kind making sure you feel at home. I stayed in the dorms for 4 nights and found it to be a solid location and a clean place to crash.

Travelled with spouse on our business trip. Chose Fern Loft Chinatown from research on Tripadvisor. However they didn't have 4 weeks' availability so I only stayed here for 2 nights before moving to the Fern Loft Little India branch.

Pluses: The lady who runs it goes to the greatest effort to make you feel at home and gives welcoming touches. After the first night there, we woke up to find that she had gone out early to buy a scrumptious Indian breakfast for everyone at the hostel. Sure beats the toast and jam provided! When we were transferring to the Little India branch, she not only covered the cost of the taxi to get there, but also came with us to make sure we got there ok. The other plus is the free wireless internet.

Minuses: It is not in the best of areas- we were apprehensive when the shuttle dropped us off because it didn't looked like a public lodging, but more like a private residence tucked away in an alley. Don't lug up your luggages up the stairs like we did. There are lifts around the corner. The place only has 2 private bedrooms (one of which the manager occupies), and a mixed dorm room. Very tiny common area and the bathroom is a toilet and shower combined. The bedroom is as expected in a budget accommodation- nothing flash. The door was a bit faulty though. Transport is easy enough via MRT about 5-10 min away, but this is really not the nicest area to live at I felt. The immediate streets (and the walk to the MRT station) surrounding the Little India branch is much nicer and felt safer at night.

Cheap backpackers hostel in Singapore - good value for good quality

Cons:
- Shared bathroom: dirty, no shoes allowed in the hostel so had to share sandals
- Had to be very quiet at night, especially for those sharing the dorm (the hostess sleeps there too)

Pros:
- Mostly clean
- Comfortable, spacious private room for 3 people with a good air con & good night sleep as it is very quiet
- Very safe: CCTV cameras in the corridors
- Friendly hostess that acts as a mother duck
- Coffee & toast in the morning
- Good atmo to meet other backpackers
- Very cheap & good value
- Great location in bustling Chinatown & 5 mins taxi drive to nightlife in the city
- Close to MRTs (train stations)
