    I'm staying 2 nights at Matchbox. The hostel is very comfortable compared to the usual hostels, with its "matchbox" sleeping cabins. The staff is friendly and the location is good, only 5 min from Chinatown and metro station.

    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.
