    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.
