I've been staying at Backpackers Chinatown numerous times the last few years that I've been in Singapore. This time around they have included the Pods! Awesome! For only $38 a night, you have your own space. Looks like a pod in a space station. And...More

Place is ok if you just need a cheap hostel for your accommodation that is near an MRT station (Chinatown). Nothing fabulous. Nothing fancy. Only curtains separate you from other travelers. It would be good if time to time the bathroom will be clean since...More
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.
