The best part is the location. It's just a few steps away from the Chinatown MRT station, like literally a few steps. Once you get out of the station, you can already see the black colored building on your way out. and it's actually just in the middle of the energetic busy and crazy beautiful Chinatown. I loved every minute...

Location is good. Don't put high expectations for the room and bedding. Tiny. But it was good enough for a night's sleep. Plus point is they provide a smartphone on loan to use, free data. Overall experience was good. Reception was polite and friendly too.

Stayed for two nights. The first night I was in the attic room where the beds are all separate ( no bunk beds). This was a good room. The second night I had to move to bunk bed dorm. The room was so tiny and was for 6 people. However two couples were able to rent one bed each, so...

It is not difficult to find this hostel, just few steps in right-hand side when you leave Chinatown MRT Station escalator. The price can't be friendly more! The staffs are so pleasant and helpful. This hostel is close to Chinatown Heritage Centre, food outlets and souvenir outlets with affordable price tags. Cannot wait for my second chance to stay here...

We traveled to Singapore with my brother's family on December 26-31, 2016 and stayed here. We arrived at an unholy hour and we were pleasantly surprised to find out that reception is open 24 hours. Although the rooms are bare ( no TV, phone), these are very clean. The bathrooms are also kept clean 24 hours. WIFI is excellent. Staff...

With very affordable prices, this hostel offers you a really comfy bed, well-working hot showers, plenty of breakfast toasts etc, and my favorite thing from this place would be the super strategic location! It's only 10 steps away from Chinatown MRT exit and the surroundings are filles with choices of food and the cheap market stalls for your needs and...

Stayed here once and planned to stay again this mid year with my family. - Sleeping experience was okay, bed and pillow might need replacement as this is the first project in chinatown. The bunk bed might sound like cricket when you climb up or down, or even move. But that's alright, you won't fall and burry your mate in...

I just like the everything since it's an inn. Pros: 1. I like the management for the room. Everything has set properly. 2. The AC works perfectly. 3. The shower is good too. 4. Wifi connection is typically fine. Cons: 1. Stairs-staff awareness. I brought 18kg things inside my suitcase. I didn't blame those stairs, but it would be better...

I had a day stopover in Singapore and stayed in a single room. The location was amazing--easy to find at night from Chinatown station, near great shopping and sites, and not a bad price compared to other options for someone looking for a single room. My only issue was that the single room had twin bunk bed not a double...

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.
