Great location, easy to find, fast wifi, good value for money. Notice that because it is cheap, you have to pay extra for everything (e.g. breakfast or even toilet paper)


Unashamedly cheap and cheerful. Well located. Mattresses and pillows were very thin. Access to some dorms through others isn't ideal. Lockers were provided.


really good location, friendly staff, would definitely stay here again. directly in Chinatown, lots of restaurants nearby, central market, Chinatown market in walking distance btw 2-5 min (but a wipe or cleaning would not make it worse ;))


As I'm not a fussy person, I enjoyed myself here. I met great people and the hostel isn't too far away from everything. If you are a neat freak you may not enjoy it as much as I did, but you get what you pay for!

It's cheap but the space in the room was very limited. It's not a good idea to have a through dorm room as it's inconvenient for people who stay at that dorm room. Great location. The staff was ok.


This hostel was ok, it was only $4 a night per person so you do get what you paid for which is very very basic facilities. The rooms and hallways looked like the inside of what used to be mental hospital. Wifi was only available in the lobby even though on hostelworld it says it's available in all the rooms. There were only 2 bathroom shower combos per floor so if they we're taken, you had to go to another floor and hope it was free. The breakfast on the rooftop is awesome though and very cheap!


Great budget hostel has all the necessity great value for money in a great central Location.


Cheapest at the Chinatown. We found a couple of bedbugs on bed but they were friendly, they didn't bite us!

Good value for money! Stayed for one night only!


Not even close to the expected. All facilities were really old and not well conserved. The room was not very clean, we could see some dirty cobwebs on the wall. However the breakfast was good and the woman that made it was really friendly.


I and my friends Anna & Patricia are really appreciate all the help we get from the staff of Backpackers Travellers Inn for three days stay at the hostel. We enjoy the night at the bar counter, the music and the entertaining talk and joke of the manager of the hostel. Mr Stevie Chan. From ordering foods at the China Town, helping with the menu and do some shopping, we couldn't have done it without his expert advised. Everything has perfect We love to stay again this time more friends...


It was ALL very okay.... the location is perfect, verry easy to go around. Very cheap and the morning lady at the reception is a sweetheart! Will come back, very very good for the price.

nice hostel


We really hate this place. We had a double room, which was ugly like a prison cell. We had no blanket for the bed. The Facilities were full of piss the whole night and day. The rooftop bar looked like a dumping ground. Maybe it was just a bad day for them, but this was the worst experience in 7 weeks of traveling Thailand and Malaysia.


wish they had parking


Not good at all!!! All the dorms are connected so instead of a 8 bed dorm you have one big 24bed dorm...It's loud, staff unfriendly and I wouldn't recommend to go there!!


Nothing fancy, but OK to spend the night. Well located. The staff was quite helpful.


Dirty, dark dank toilets, unfriendly staff, rough street, tiny rooms.advertised with but only 12hrs and in those cell like rooms with two ppl and no window ac is a must!


Please provide a cover

Cover is available upon request at the reception 24 hrs and it's FREE, the problem with most people today is if they have a problem, they don't speak to us, they don't ask, tell us their needs, problems etc but instead the tell the whole world.


if you have an astma,or allergie ,you shoud not go there,i think there is a very much mildew in the breathing air,my eyes make a very first reaction when i get out of elevator and open the hostel door.
