The hostel offers free wifi, free breakfast (coffee, choco, bread, and cereals), the room we had stayed in was clean, beddings were already provided by the hostel. Also, they offered complimentary water. Since we have occupied...

After such glowing reviews by others, I have to say that I was a bit disappointed by this hostel. The location is fantastic. It's a few steps away from the subway. Few steps away from Chinatown and all the great food it has to offer. It's easy to get around. My biggest complaint was the rooms. They were TINY. It...

Dear guest, Thank you for your feedback and we apologise if you feel uncomfortable in our 10-bed mixed shared room. Perhaps, you have chosen our cheapest bed in 10-bed mixed shared room with the budget low price. This room caters to 10 pax and so far, we have yet to receive any complaint of non-sociable guests till to date -.-"...

The staff is nice, Wendy is awesome and keeps the hostel very clean but the rooms are too small. Instead they have big lockers. It is ok if you are looking for sth for back packers budget because the city is quite expensive

Great security, generally pretty quiet though people keep to themselves so not really for solo travelers. Good location right across the street from an underground station but you can walk anywhere in about 20 mins anyway. Staff are great though, helpful as they come.

A hostel that feels like home. So comfy! There is a free flow Milo, tea and coffee all the time. The staffs were friendly. It's a good way to train the children to be independent as you have to make your own breakfast and wash the dishes by your own.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful 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.
