          This hostel is in Chinatown, very close to the train station and many street food can be found around. The staff also very friendly. One of the hostel facilities that I love the most was the massage chair.

          Great for staying in Chinatown and not loud since it's at the end of Ann Siang street. No real communal space so no good way to meet other travelers. Good value for the money if you want a little private space.More

          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.
