I stayed in Backpackers' Inn for four days. It was a small place almost five minutes of walk away from the Chinatown Station but it was a great lodging establishment. The staffs were friendly and the ambiance was comfortable.

I stayed in the dormitory downstairs with the other backpackers. Rooms are separated by curtains and the floor was carpeted. A towel and blanket are provided, and a comfortable pillow. There are also lights above the beds for personal use.

Even though the inn was full, I had no problem with the bathroom. I didn't know if I was just good with timing or what. There was also a computer to use for free and wi-fi is available. There's also hot water for coffee.

I think my only complaint here is that their iron ruined my favorite shirt and the snoring man was too loud that me, and my dorm mates, weren't able to sleep properly. (Although I don't blame the staffs for that.lol)

oh, they accept credit cards.

Stayed here for two nights and kind of liked the place. The doorms are not really rooms, more separated by a single wall and curtains. But despies that the place is clean and most of the times quiet. We got a doorm closest to the kitchen making it sometimes noisy but mostly after 9 am making it fell ok. Only two toilets to share among about 25 people but it worked out fine and their really clean. I would recommend the place fop a cheap budget stay.

i booked for the private double room, and i got a very clean room. it has a clean pantry and bathroom. and it also has a washing & drying machine, so you can wash your own clothes for free! (detergent provided). the only minus about this hostel was the pillow which was not comfortable.. i wish they upgrade the pillows hence it will be a perfect visit. overall i will come again to this hostel.

Room Tip: i'd say choose the double private room... :D

We stayed here for a week and thought very highly of the place. The facilities are very good. Showers with soap and kitchen with enough facilities to prepare small meals, also drinking water and washer/drier. We really felt at home here. There is a house keeper who comes in everyday and cleans the shared kitchens and bathrooms replenishing water etc. We had a private double room it was small but clean. Also the wifi connection is brilliant, great if you have lot to organise. Staff are really friendly and always happy to help resolve any issues. Great location, mrt right round the corner which will take you everywhere and for next to nothing. There are a couple of karaoke bars down stairs which are loud but also really quite amusing. Would definitely return. Thank you for a really pleasant stay.

Excellent if you want to just stay there overnight and go out in the morning to explore Singapore and return back in the evening!
They have a nice kitchen with drinking water (don't have to spend extra money on buying bottled water).
Also soap and shower gel provided.
You can also wash your clothes for free.
There is also a computer with free internet!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side to avoid noise from the street
