They are very efficient, replied my mails right after I sent the questions. They are really helpful, since I'm expecting they helped to arrange a bottom bed for me, also helped to carry my suitcase to downstairs. The room was cleaned everyday, but didn't need to worry personal belongs, they provides lockers with smartcard access. The kitchen, shower room, lounge,...

A little bit pricey for a hostel but its location is excellent, very near to MRT station and to Chinatown heritage sites. Hostel is clean, wifi is excellent, everyday housekeeping, safety and security is no problem in terms of location and the hostel itself.

I stay only one night! The receipt welcome us like an alien meet the earth habitant which means very normal welcome. The hotel is clean, new experience to stay with double level and meet strangers.

Great clean hostel in good location close to mrt. A little expensive but I think everywhere is pricey in singapore so it's ok. Nice staff and great layout of rooms. There wasn't really a sociable Vibe to meet other travellers of you're alone, but that didn't really matter.

Hi LACdublin, We appreciate your comments! Yes Singapore is very expensive for accommodation and we try hard to strike the right balance between costs (rental, amenities, breakfasts, 24 hour service, more space than others etc) and price (haven't raised for close to 2+ years). Not always easy, and we are always encouraged by feedback like yours.... Delighted your stay proved...

Excellence is the only word. Just that I wish I could use the washer and drier for free and there would be aircon in the lobby not just in the room. However, the room and place is very clean in general. Location wise is perfect as well, literally just 2-3 minutes walk from the Chinatown MRT. There are famous bak...

For those who have stayed before, the surrounding area is more livelier due to the numerous dining outlets.Free postcard is a nice gesture.Comprehensive information for tourists sights is available for those who are visiting Singapore for the first time.

I really like this place!! They have mixed dorm, male dorm and female dorm. Also there are separate shower room and toilet for male and female. There are 6-8 beds per dorm. I got a bed in a 8-dorm.

Singapore is expensive. We should not have gone for 3 nights and neither should you if you can't afford the Wink, because the cheaper places to stay are dirty! Wink was really clean.

Hi Vesta5675, Ouch... it's embarrassing to have your issues aired publicly. No excuses - sorry - the air-conditioning in our Flame of the Forest Room did leak over last weekend. We cleaned the filter immediately, and had our contracted AC vendor come immediately the next working day for a thorough check. This is disturbing as we already have very regular...

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.
