I stayed one night at this place and i was so happy to leave. The room was sooo tiny, maybe 2 sqm. I picked 4 bed dorm with the idea to be a little private and quiet but it probably was worse than a 10 bed dorm. Was so smelly and dirty. Beds are super noisy so keep waking up...

This is a cheap hotel but it is very comfortable. If you stay here, you will get a smartphone that you can use when you in Singapore. The receptionist is nice, friendly, and want to help the customer. It was nice.

A cheap and pretty clean place. The price differ depending on availability. Breakfast is self-served in the "kitchen-areas". Apples, toast, butter, jam and milk with cereals. Great location next to the subway. Helpful and friendly staff. Small rooms and showers. Clean beds, but very very worn out mattresses - really uncomfortable.

The location is very good and safe. The dorm room was small, but the bed was comfortable. I stayed there for one night ( altogether in Singapore ), for a few nights it is a good choice. There are a plenty of choices if you want to eat, or shop or just to walk around the city.

Bearable for 2 days but the price was too expensive 85 euros the night for 2 people. The breakfast was okay I guess if you don't need much. In conclusion too expensive and not even...

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.
